The latest Azure Striker Gunvolt update comes from Famitsu, who introduces rival character Acura.

Acura is “a psychic hunter who does not belong to any faction, but harbors a strong hatred towards the Sumeragi Group psychics. While he does not possess any psychic powers of his own, he is able to steal and analyze the psychic power factors of other psychics. He wields a weapon that mimics such powers and stands in Gunvolt’s way.”
