Wow im all late i just read the chapters and i must say i was surprised to see Sekine die so soon T_T like he said...they are in hell...i was hoping that no new characters would die this early but i suppose it was inevitable this is Gantz were talking about here. Though judging from how easy those balls can get into humans it seems like the Gantzers are going to have an extremely difficult time with this. Does anyone have any theories on how the Gantz team will fight back against these balls? and is anyone else curious in wondering whether the 2 children are controlling them also i though Gantz suits were immune to damage with the sword o_0?
This Chapter really makes you think lot about whats going on and whats going to happen later cause it certainly gave me a lot of think about lol
Here is my theory on why this city was made for human sized creatures, The alien with Kei one calls him an insect even though on an earlier chapter he showed her he has advanced technology so I think to the giants the concept of insects with technology is not strange to them, in fact she never even questions how he has such advanced technology the only thing which she doesn't have a reply to was when he said he loves a girl, insects not being sentient probably can't have such emotions, also as shown in an earlier chapter this hunting ground seems to be located under the main city which is were you find insect colonies under the ground.
I think these "spores" are probably some kind of highly advanced ant poison the giants infect a few drones (such as the chicken or the slug) then they spread the infection to the entire colony, this is why the entire city seems to be destroyed, the highly advanced insects which built the city were probably wiped out or are the praying mantises seen on this chapter but being none-sentient they are probably incapable of reason or can only make logic based decisions.
I could even further theories saying that the Insects could be linked to Gantz being hacked but I find this highly doubtful since similar bomber bugs were seen in an earlier chapter if I remember correctly.
Of course there is a high chance this is completely wrong but it never hurts to share a theory or two.

Welcome back georgemarvin. You'd been away so long I thought you were gone for good. Any idea exactly how long it's been?
^ I was beginning to think that he never existed in the first place.
Anyway whatever this thing is it has to be one of the worst ways to die, the pain must be excruciating and probably continues for quite some time. If I was infected I'd probably ask to be flattened by the H gun rather than go through that.
I bet in the next chapter Oku will show us that there is more to these balls of light than just making its target multiply its body parts, clothes, and such. Maybe when the Gantz team start shooting at the mutated bastards, more balls of light may come out to infect other people. Maybe the balls of light will explode if a bullet goes through them. Or maybe these balls of light are actually the souls of all the other humans killed before and they start talking and SYMBOLISM!...well I'm getting a little to carried away here.
Anywho, does anyone else notice that the mutated Sekine STILL HAS HIS GUN on page 23!!!
I wonder if the monster Sekine is actually going to shoot the gantz team with that. That would be awesome!
Anyone notice Sekine looks bigger than the others?
We don't know what these balls are made of but you go ahead and say "they are only light, period, inmaterial and instant death".
Can't say the guy who stopped lightning with his mind and killed dozens of giants in a second might be able to stop this without sounding a Cherry Fan, a HUEG Cherry fan, right?
We don't know the extent of Sakurai's powers at this point and even worst we don't know the nature of the balls. But we do know team will get this through only to find a worst scenario later in the manga.

Don't forget Cherry can control things man, look at the chapters of him when he was learning. The twirling flame, the coffee & the eraser. This 'Light' is still a bubble like object with a core in the middle, it moves around and creates reaction when into flesh...Cherry could make them explode if not then he still could move the 'light bubbles' if he focused.
I think its something to do with the blood or/and it enter from his back. The way it was shaking inside his arm, kinda made me think it is a thing that just came out of a egg.
@Kenshi: It entered his back first. The more important question is why did it show up in his arms first!
