Well Gonde announced he was going to crash the spaceship into Tokyo, so... panic stations definitely, but what were they doing on the roof anyway? Just chill out people.
^ They are going to die or scream at the highest place possible, it is probably the most "meaningful" action you can think of when you know you will die for sure in minutes
btw, die or not, i will definitely climb high and look how f**ked the buildings are.
I don't think Kurono can win by himself, it is too optimistic at first and that's why he will be f**ked at last. Kato will save him at very moment, together with the teammates, then the story will be complete.
Yeah, the ifght just started.
All thats happening is that we are seeing that Kei can hold is own against someone no one else could.
He hasn't raped Gonde YET.
Everyone is just shitting themselves because Oku doesn't write the story THEY want.
I could give a rat's ass what story Oku decides to write at this point.
We are all fully aware that we can come up with more compelling and interesting material.
But when a fan base gets pissed off that the main character has the main fight?
Damn man......I got nothing to say to that.
And on the note with the 4chan type response board.
Yeah I agree that he is making an observation on how people behave on the internet.
But if you notice, they aren't say anything that the other people AREN'T saying.
The 4chan people are just as pesemistic and arrogant as the people that are speaking in person.
Notice how NO ONE has faith in Kei. Not just hte 4 chan people.
I have a feeling that, he's calling EVERYONE a fucking moron, regardless of how you voice your opinion.
You can do it on a message board, which he depicted.
Or you can do it face to face, which he depicted.
The point is that, regardless, everyone has the same shit to say about kurono.
Internet people are just as dumb as real life people.
And on the note of people killing themselves and that being stupid.
I dunno guys, that really has the "gantz" feeling to me.
Just watching horrible things happening to innocent people.
I wish I could be standing outside watching bodies rain from the sky and explode in front of me. That would be awesome.
I enjoyed it just cause its fun to watch innocent people get hurt. And after all, isn't that what gantz is all about?

Was Gantz always this stupid?
Hope the pace will pick up and the fight gets interesting. Or at least that Oku will actualy focus n the fight, instead of the reactions all around the world.
@kliff2004: I don't look at as "he's the main character, so he has do this, this, this and this." I look at as 'he's Kurono Kei and he doesn't stand a chance, main or not'. This isn't supposed to be Naruto. Main characters can die.
As far as internet comments vs. in person comments... well I have no idea. I haven't been reading the english versions lately because there hasn't been anything of substance lol. I just wanna get to the fight!

It was probably this bit lol:
"I wish I could be standing naked outside watching bodies rain from the sky and explode in front of me. That would be awesome."
There's something interesting about watching other people get hurt. We certainly see enough of it in reality tv and sport and stuff. Still, not sure I'd be too happy about hundreds of people dying all around me while I just watch.
Once they master virtual reality technology I might check it out though lol.

Seems like Oku's showing how he's hating on internet trolls.
But in all seriousness, Gantz is a pretty cool shounen.
Although still suspect that Gantz is really coming to an end, because it would mean that left about 6 or 7 chapters, which I think insufficient to complete the story, I see four outcome for the fight:
1 - Kurono wins, saves the world and lives happily ever after with Tae (worst ending... of all time);
2 - Kurono wins, but dies and is remembered as a hero (bittersweet ending)
3 - Kurono loses, Evva Gond fulfills the promise and destroys Earth (Katastrophe ending)
4 - Kurono gives a good fight, but loses and Evva demands that his "brother", Kei 2, appear to be dead too.
Personally I prefer the 4th, that really is a plot twist, but it's only my opinion. Provided that Gantz has a satisfying ending, I do not care what the outcome, although there are points that need completion:
A-Kurono Parents - So your kid is badass and is saving the world. After that they will be a happy family? Absolutely not. Kurono suffered years as unfavorite, and considering how the father is an asshole, I do not see Kurono forgiving so easily. What also leads to ...
B-Akira Kurono and vampires. It is better not to comment for now.
C-Sebastian and his relationship with God-Alien. Seriously, reread the chapter in which he demonstrates his powers,thought it would be incredible to have him as the bigger bad the whole story.

That's the joke.
I say Nishi is gonna appear in the next chapters...mark my words...
Well, those guys that jumped off the roofs will feel very stupid once Kurono will have save the world yet again!!
@GAT-X252: Very lucky indeed if we ever see the vampires again lol. Shame too because I was really interested to know a little bit more about whatshername. His accomplice.
Hope Nishi shows up but at this stage who knows? Would laugh if he somehow took out Gonde from behind the scenes. Or maybe he shows up wounded after Kei wins and shoots him in the back.
Is the "mothership" supposed to be a different ship than the one that landed in Tokyo? Anyway...i bet Nishi is still alive but i don't know how he is gonna escape, if they are different ships then Nishi would have to travel first to the mothership in order to be transfered by the only functional sphere.
Well, maybe he can steal a flying bike and travel through space until Earth like Kurono did.
