The squad's emblem consists of a rooster with a dragon head in front of what appears to be a circle of fire or a laurel wreath.
After they return from the business mission, Osamu takes up the chance to seek guidance from Satomi regarding his upcoming opponents. Later, Satomi is seen walking away with Saeki and Uno.
- Kusakabe Squad is currently the only known squad led by an Operator.
- Their emblem is probably a reference to the myth of the Basilisk, which is alternatively represented as a rooster with a dragon's head or as a giant snake, or the Cockatrice, which is commonly represented as a snake with a rooster's head, but also as a rooster with a snake's head.
- Given that Midorikawa joined Border one year ago, this likely means Kusakabe Squad reached the top of B-Rank in one to two Rank Wars after forming (or at least after Midorikawa joined), subsequently making Rank 4 of A-Rank before December. Since there are only three Rank Wars a year, this implies Kusakabe Squad beat everyone else in one or two seasons (probably the former), as A-Rank Wars would have been harder to compete in with less time. Yet they took the fourth spot, concluding they spent a single Rank War in B-Rank, and two in A-Rank; least for Midorikawa, if not Kusakabe Squad as a whole.
