    “And no matter what kind of problem humans are facing, whether its natural or man made, I always hope it gets worse. Don’t you? Don’t you... don’t you have a part of you, a part of you that secretly hopes everything gets worse? When you see a big fire on TV... don’t you hope it spreads? Don’t you hope it gets completely out of control and burns down six counties? You don’t root for the firemen, do ya’? I mean, I don’t want ‘em gettin’ hurt or nothin’, but... I don’t want ‘em putting out my fire.”

    Did you really want Kei to be dragging her around throughout all the fighting or did you want Kei 1 to retire from the battle with Tae and that be the end of his story? Because those are the only other conclusions I can think of other then what just happened.
    Story and plot wise, its pretty interesting. We have Kei who was just transported back to the zaibutsu group (most likely) and we have Kei2 who is 'free' on the alien side of things. Tae might get close to the alines and find out more about them.

    I just think it's a way of keeping Rara in the story, if anything at all.

    It does seem like a way to get Kei back into the action ASAP. But it could very easily lead to another huge search-for-Tae arc.

    Actually I did want Kei to have to drag her around. It's incredibly dangerous at the moment and we've already seen him lose multiple civilians just trying to get them out. Would have been awesome to see them escape together. There are several things Oku could have done to keep things interesting from that point on. Being whisked away at random wasn't the best thing to do in this case in my opinion. The possibility of another enormous Tae arc is putting people off. It's pretty cheap.

    Can't wait for more fucking Tae storylines, as she and Fra inevitably get into trouble again and again.

    ^ I think Oku saw the polls on the character voting that had Tae in the top 3 so he thought maybe I should make the people not vote for her that much in the next one he does (if he does lol)
    But boy oh boy Tae Milk's the pages in the chapters she has like an average of 5 pages a chapter since Kei first got transfered. I think Nishi/Cherry or Hikiwa are drinking in a bar whining over how a helpless otaku girl gets more screen time in a major chaos event than them! Well by now Hikiwa would be dazed in a corner curled up thinking "Does anybody remember me? Maybe I should lose the tie...no wait Half a tie, people liked me when I only had half a tie."

    Yeah, I guess I feel that way too. Our societies feel stuck and there are too many rulers everywhere. Change would be good. Oku captures my imagination by doing crazy unexpected things you don't see in that light often.

    Not to mention she already has her own manga before Gantz... and She'll probably be in Oku's next work.

    See them escape from what together? Their planet? You was hoping they would of went on some arc to look for a spaceship to head back to earth? Tae is on their planet not in some arena like Kei2 and Katou, plus she's not a Gantzer she wouldn't of been transported like how Kei2 group was, her being left behind was inevitable not cheap but actual circumstances brought on by the story.

    And yes i'm quite aware that the planet is dangerous for them and Tae has been through a bunch of troubles like we've seen but you say that you want to see her go through those same troubles but with Kei and then end your post with a sarcastic remark about how you don't want more Tae stories? I'm sorry I don't follow.

    Like I stated early this scenario is the best one for the story. I don't expect more Tae story because she IS with Fra. We've seen the aliens have pet humans and no one stopped or harassed Fra before. Now that Tae is with her she is pretty much safe hell and Fra has a translator and can understand her.

    I hear a lot of people complaining about Oku but it seems like they don't know what they really want in the manga or how to set what they up right anyway, so I'm glad he's the author and you guys aren't.

    Well, either way, Tae will most likely be safe with that Big Alien that helped Kurono, as she now emphasizes with humans.

    You've got the wrong idea about what I said before. I want to see what it would be like to live for a long period of time in a warzone. I don't like all the bullshit where Tae can jump from one near-death situation to the next and barely be harmed. I don't like the fact that Kei2 went into the alien mothership without a plan. And I don't like the fact that the aliens have this amazing tracking ability, and yet they still let Kei and Cherry continue to wreak havoc out in the open. None of it makes sense.

    I was thinking that escorting Tae around Tokyo would present some unique challenges for Kei. I really enjoyed the Tae mission because he really went all out to protect her. It could also bring back those moral dilemmas; 'do I help civilians or do I look after Tae'.

    On the other hand, Kei might actually hide out in Fra's house with Tae or something. Maybe the mom notifies the army or something (even if they shouldn't need it).

    The fact that she was left behind now of all times was cheap. She went through like 8 situations that ought to have got her killed. In fact every single person she encountered was murdered right in front of her. So she has massive plot armor and it took the entire year to get her back, and now immediately she's alone again. People saw something like this miles away. It was an obvious set up by Oku.

    Tae isn't safe yet. There are plenty of things that could get in the way. A lot of us don't share your confidence that Oku won't put us through something like this again.

    Lol whatever. I know what I like to see and so far this year has been a disappointment. Main problems have been the plot armor of the main characters as well as the poor handling of Tae's rescue. There's still some good stuff in there but any sense of suspension of disbelief is gone now.

    I reckon Nerdo is a dead man. If they're not getting healed anymore and it is the zaibatsu fellows that are summoning them then it's likely they don't want a heavily wounded person slowing them down.

    ^

    I think they'll just take everyone. They took Takeshi last time didn't they? The transfer itself will heal Nerdo so that's not a problem.

    ---------- Post added at 11:57 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:56 AM ----------

    We don't know for sure that everybody is being summoned. If the giants are in control of Kei2's team, that leaves Nishi, Takeshi, Kei1 and Cherry available to be taken. Oh, and the vampires as well.

    I'm still hoping they start taking civilians as well. Specifically, Ryou.
