Star Driver Episode 6

After seeing the events of this episode, the Cybody fighting seems a lot more dangerous than it seemed before.

It’s kinda like it’s telling a story of its own, the sort of simple story between friends that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, though that might just be me.

This picture needs a spaceship or something over Wako's head.
