>Kou should have stayed on the ground and not tried to go play the "hero".
Still, I give him a few points for trying his best, which was obviously not
good enough.

If anything, that was his saving grace, that he was a stubborn SOB.

I agree with this. Gato already had the mission objective done, so why

>That's not what being a man is about.

Being a man is facing up to all the unpleasantness that either you or life
throws at you, and having the grace to bear it all with equanimity.

should have been a man about it and admitted it and taken himself out,

Cima had something better than the gp04 tio knock him out with in the last
