    @ForeverRain:

    Many things could get in the way. Hallucinations distract him, mind breaks, not enough power to teleport so far, plus he's wearing himself down rapidly, etc. Mainly it seems like foreshadowing.

    @Hikawa:

    Only reason Cherry's teacher thought he was going to die was a couple of worrying brain scans from the doctor. Cherry's brain is fine, so it may be the case that these powers won't kill him. However, something is clearly fucking with his head at the moment. We'll see how things play out soon.

    @kliff2004:

    Remember, this whole thing doesn't just end with the Tokyo mothership. There's the rest of the world to consider as well as the post-invasion war. Apparently teams of Gantzers will be fighting each other for control of various parts of the world. They may have said that this is the final mission for their slaves but we can't really take them at their word. They'll either recall the troops when the tower falls or they will leave them to rot.

    As for Nishi, didn't he say he was playing to take remote control of one of the mechs?

    In the Dark horse tranlation Sakata clearly says that thier powers are no good. That he has the internal organs of an old geezer. So it clearly does hurt them. Sakurai seems to be immune to this fact. Or oku just forgot.

    I know he says that. But can his information be trusted to be accurate? I don't think Cherry is reacting to the powers in the same way. If it's even the powers fault that Sakata was a little messed up inside.

I'd be complaining only if there was more than one psychic. With just one psychic Oku's throwing in the kitchen sink, and I'm fine with that, Oku clearly has watch Akira and yes that's likely where Sakurais inspiration came from.

    The Irony in all of this is that he blamed the Tokyo businessmen for Tonkotsus death, and now unknown to him, he has become their bitch. Hes their greatest asset and they are lucky he only just removed the bomb just now. They got him there just in time.
    yes I agree with this so much. Except even one sort of irritates me a bit. The way Sakata approached him without testing him to see if he's even capable of doing it seemed to imply that anyone could acquire psychic powers they just need to be taught. I think that makes the manga a little too open ended and leaves a lot of questions that should be discussed that would probably change the whole theme of the manga. But I guess it's ok, to just throw in a random thing like that without too much detail to add in your "Akira" inspiration into your own manga.

    I thought he recognised a familiar brain structure in Cherry or something. And so he unlocked it.

    first they need to have their brain modified to use such power by the previous psychic user it seems. here it shows Sakata saying that he modified Cherry's brain in order for him to use his power. and here we have Sakata saying that someone else unlocked his power.

    as in playerdude's link is said "Humans are capable of doing those things...", so every human. in the end Cherry could also unlock his comerades potetial. or only kei's .. as he is the nearest now.

    Any thoughts on what role those businessmen will play? I mean that by far was the most interesting thing in the chapter, they are the ones that were mentioned that will survive this whole ordeal or something earlier right?

    I'd say the Zaibatsu gang sitting pretty at their apartment without suits are getting sloppy. They're pretty much counting on the fact that they've won, which only means the plan will fail miserably. I do wonder what kind of counter-attack the aliens launched, I just hope it isn't a bigger mech or something.

    It's probably just an astral projection. The real Cherry is probably braindead and drooling like a baby.

    How is Nishi going to get back to the the buliding he was since he did not transfer with his computer? I suppose he could always take the mecha with him and do that ^^. Although now it seems the mechas are being blown up like nothing...

    He still wants to kill stuff. His powers can only get him so far. He needs to stay around there for the sake of the 'story'. Take your pick. It could be anything.

    Y'know, it's like the same reason why the Zaibatsu didn't just teleport in the mechs right in front of the tower they needed to destroy. There's no action, fun or drama to be gained by doing the sensible thing.

    cherry is beast right now...he's controlling the mech with just his mind.that thing is big as some of the skyscrapers...now imagine him against that psychic monster reika killed.he would have shredded that thing...to bad he wasn't there...
    Look around you carefully. Strain your eyes at the darkness around us... At the darkness around me. You said anywhere but here. This is where, here, at the border. Gathered by the winds. Those who have met their final destiny hanging between jealousy and regret. Those who failed, swept together here. You say it doesnt matter where. If you follow me, this is where you'll go. This is your eden.

    I don't know that...let's not forget the mechs are programed to move on their own, the pilots only have to move the arms.
