The insects here must be related with the ones up attacking Anzu's group. And the chicken thing. They all go 'cluck cluck cluck'. I think these mantis things could be what was growing out of the bodies of those human looking aliens that Anzu/Nerdo encountered.
It's not quite clear what they look like but it's not too hard to imagine that they might eventual develop into full mantis creatures. It looks like the kids have been taken over too, if you ignore the fact that they're covering up their genitals, which you normally wouldn't expect.
Something's not right here... Blondie knows exactly where both Kei's are. Why isn't he doing anything? Why weren't Nishi/Takeshi transferred along with the others? Was the new guy talking about the giants when he said they're too smart, too powerful etc.? What does he mean by that? If they're so clever why are they sending random people to die against the Gantzers?
Either Oku's just being way too dramatic about the giants or whoever's really in charge is basically toying with them. I wonder if Kurono's hostage is really on his side or whether she's been given orders somehow to lure him to an ambush. Could the giants actually be going easy on the Gantzers? I mean quite a few giants are dying but how is it that they could contain something powerful enough to absolutely steam roll several Gantz teams, when they can barely take on Tokyo team?
Hmmm the ending of the chapter was very interesting i wonder if the item (or alien) the 2 children have controls the aliens behind them and also the look at the little boys eyes makes me feel as if they are both possessed by that alien looking thing. Anyways looks like things are about to get real intense lets just hope the gantzers make it out alive and that Nerd and Anzu can protect the innocent people.
Wonder if the chicken is controlling them or something? I mean if it is it's got the perfect shield.
Wow i didnt really notice it was a chicken but anyways yea it could be that the chicken is controlling them which could also mean that the aliens behind them are in control. I wonder how strong they are since they were able to take down a whole army of Gantzers and how im curious to know how they fight.
Yes, it could be...maybe those aliens with six nipples are survivors from a previous invasion and the humanoid bugs planted their eggs on them? or maybe they are just a younger version of them.
Plot device, they'll eventually meet, maybe he is just waiting for the right moment...same with Takeshi and Nishi, they just wanted to blew up the base and after they did they transfered the team to that place...Oku just wanted Nishi and Takeshi together in a new adventure.
There is no one else pulling the strings...or at least it seems so. Plenty of hunters died in the big battle when the teams went for the first time to the alien ship, aliens have more numbers and the high ranked soldiers can take out hunters easily by just dashing over them.
But yeah, this guys seems to be in another level taking out a guy with the powered suit. Maybe they are survivors from another invasion and made a truce with the giants if they let them live there. Or maybe the giants have more resources than we believe...and those bugs are being controled by the giants.
You think all the dead are from the failed rescue missions, or have they been dumping people to fight here since the start? Looks like there may be more SDF that snuck aboard too.
Still curious how hostile the aliens would have been if that guy hadn't freaked out. Though freaking out was, understandable..
Anyway, nice to see Kei1 back on track.
And yes, those kids are giving off a genuinely ominous vibe.
Easier to divide and conquer? Maybe they only knew about Gantzers that were already on the ship, so they blew up the apartment to get anyone they missed.Quote:

Those spider things still don't make any sense. How exactly do those spiky balls underneath them even do anything?
Blondie's probably going to go after Kei1. They have the same DNA presumably but he probably recognises Kei1's clothes? Maybe?
I'm still not clear on how the other gantzers showed up in this place. Were they forced there like Tokyo team was? The guy seemed surprised that they couldn't leave..
I wonder how the fight is going to go down. Reika's fairly amateur, and it looks like hand-to-hand might be very dangerous considering even a G-suit apparently got wrecked.. If they are that dangerous then normal strategies won't work, so Kei/Katou might not even be that useful. I think this fight might be for the new guys to show off tbh.
The guy said they came there to save people and was shocked when he heard kurono's team was force/hacked transfer. So someone else must of done that. The giant aliens are too arrogant and naive, they have dump aliens there to be a gladiator arena. Those mantis I think do have some control over the kids and if thats so maybe they have some ESP power that took out the G suit guy. I think if Ivan sees the broadcast he will take action but I think he may bump into Kei1 instead..but Kei2 when be so confused to why Ivan wants him dead so bad. Lol I thought Anzu was dead when she said to nerdo to go get the others, but nerdo was smart saying they have to stay together.
Nishi and Takashi were not transfer because the person who did this thought the ambush in the room would of been enough. The person hasn't noticed Cherry yet because his being low key by having everything in sight die lol.
But the giants are screening this on television, they obviously are involved, the creatures that went to the room to destroy it also belong to the giants.
They know the hunters are the real threat and they've been looking ways to stop them, starting with the news that peace has been settled and the hunters are terrorists.
Maybe they found a black sphere and hacked the entire network.
I thought the whole chapter that the big aliens watched something like this.
If they went there on purpose looking for civilians how did they get the coordinates? This place is nothing like the meat factories.
I mean, the Tokyo team might lose some people now; it's way overdue. But you know they're going to come out of this on top and show how super duper awesome the Tokyo team is.
Or deus ex cherry is going to arrive and ruin everyone's day. (This won't happen)

I thought this chapter was actually quite depressing. The way the man spoke of their mission to save people and how all his team mates where slaughtered, the man hopelessly fighting against the monsters in the arena, the aliens watching with glee, Tae seeing her people being used in a form of barbaric entertainment all came together to make a very powerful chapter. At least for me anyway.
