I can't totally disagree with you (and wasn't really trying to disagree with this in my other post either)... but at the same time, I can't really say that it's totally "non-foreshadowed" either. It is a callback to elements that were used previously and expands on previous themes.

I agree that calling on this element now, "in the time of Kazuto's greatest need", feels rather cheap. But it wasn't totally random or "out of nowhere" either. That doesn't necessarily make you feel better about it.
