View Full Version : Question Define an Arc or is every mission and arc now?

As it was translated, Oku proposed a new arc in the wrap up of the Nuri mission. It looks to me like we are still on the offical 2nd arc. Or is this the 3rd arc?

buddha was 1st arc,
Dream team w/ Izumi 2nd arc,
Possibly the Osakan mission the 3rd Arc,

What arc are we on again?

I thought a new arc began every mission...

Unless you are speaking of Phases...

Which would mean we are in Phase 2.

an arc is like a rainbow or an arc. the story has roots progresses, climax, and ends that phase of the story.

Start of gantz until Oni appears to be the first offical arc.
Katastrophe appears to be the second arc.

if every mission is an arc than that doesn't really make sense. I think every mission is a mission and every arc is a new beginning and ending of the old ways.

Train wreck to Katou defeating the 1000 arms buddha was a whole arc but I don't think Oku exactly let go of the arc, yet pulled it all the way to cover until the end of Oni mission.
