So Sekine dies and by that we see what these aliens can do. So this is going to be a action pack chapter if the spoiler is true.
I really hope the spoilers arent true. =/
An all out battle between the team and those Grasshopper aliens would be nice.
The official title is "Saturated Skull".
I think the spoiler is confirmed but i don't know if some details are right.

BTW...i changed somethings in the summary.
Hold on a minute who the hell is Sekine and who the hell is Kaiji?
How did a ton of bubbles only manage to hit one person anyway?
Bad luck for the new guys - fodder after all? Wonder what's up with the kids. Simply not an appropriate host?
Mary McClane: Normal height. Female. American. Fantastic. Stands around doing fuck all like every other lasting female character in this manga. Bad luck.
Yoshikawa Kaiji: Goatee. One sword wasn't good enough.
Yazawa Toshio: Old, tall, awesome.
Maeshima Ryuuji: Shorter than Kei (lol). Kind looks like Cherry, only more bad ass. Uses hand-to-hand combat.
Takeda Hyouma: The more attractive one. Again, unreasonably tall. Obviously set up to be Kei's rival imho. Trying to fuck Reika. Quickly takes charge when Kei is embarassingly disarmed by a lightning bolt right after he shouts he's going to handle them all (not that he actually accomplished anything either, but whatever). Uses H-gun.

Sekine is the English speaking one who wears glasses and Kaiji is the guy who told them they can no longer revive people and used two gantz swords to kill the CGI monster a few chapters ago if I remember correctly, odd that they are killing off Sekine he hasn't done anything but translate some English so far.
I doubt that the other team and the people they tried to rescue were killed by these spores since the bodies shown were all killed cleanly with no signs of any mutations though then again the mutated ones would have walked away to the infected zone I guess.
Sekine = Intellectual with glasses and medium hair length, blond; no weapons.
Kaiji = Short black hair; dual-wielding Gantz-katanas.
I've been intrigued by those children since they first encountered that damn metallic chickadee. My initial theory was that it integrated itself with the children and then the rest of the naked fools to become that hulking mass we saw a few chapters earlier (which inexplicably disappeared); but that doesn't seem to be the case. It was however the first alien we saw before all these new species appeared. Perhaps it is the origin somehow and it does in fact integrate with other life forms, but in different ways? I'm not sure, but one thing is for certain...those kids aren't normal any longer; and that metal chicken-shit seems to be far more dangerous in more devious ways than simply being some castaway alien. We still have yet to see what the clucking humanoid lifeforms do, they were lost behind the mass of bugs and insects that the naked fools fought.
I'm interested to see what direction this is going... If Oku is simply biding time for storyline purposes or if something truly threatening will come from all these newly shown species of alien. I'm glad it was Sekine who got the axe, he seemed to be giving up already and served his purpose with the translations. Kaiji is a badass for trying to save him by slicing off/open the infected portion; too bad it didn't work but if anyone has to go it'd be Sekine. Oh and that's a kick ass chapter title.
Looking at the pics from the spoiler pics thread.
Looks like Sekine has gone all nura-like on us.
Lol when I saw the small thumbnail I thought it was a Nuraiyrhon.
That last page was pretty damn cool with all the body parts.
I like how Kaiji decided to cut the guys off but it didn't work 0.o
Lol alot of smart guys with glasses get taken over eg:guy in Budda mission, alien ate his brain.
I know you can't see the expressions on their faces and all but doesn't that last picture make it seem like they are all unusually calm in front of such a grotesque thing? lol! It just seems like Reika and Kei are saying "hm, thats a odd sight. So who's up for some mcdonalds."
okay i just saw it and i have to say........it was total bullshit. is this all relaly neccessary? mutating guys, evil silver spores, more senseless violence and all their efforts going for waste when they tried to save these people. perhaps gantz was not very coeherent to begin with, but why does it get even more incoherent now that the main plot is revealed? do we even know who sent gantz, and why? obviously, someone knew these guys were comin. wehre the fuck is he or she? and what hope do these guys have now the gantz spehre has no...pilot? thogh maybe the kid who gets a boner when he kills can get inside of it. and who wants to add that they not only copied the alien technology, but made it able to be wielded by a huamn. obviously more advanced. where is he? why did they not come up with a plan to take care of these cannibalistic giants?
apparently tha uthor said everyone else who wears a gantz suite dies than the main guy, though he has died, ressurected twice..... and know we have a clone of him running about. does anyone see that everything is spiraling to a trope known as downer ending? over two hundred fuckign chapters, and we get a downer ending.
gantz, coinsider yourself dropped.
^ Well it was actually pretty hard to read your post but it seems like you have a problem because all the answers weren't given to you in one single chapter. I don't know why you would think that or why you would think that the author would give them all the tools to succeed and be successful right away when they don't even know what's going on at the time.
It's a story, it has conflicts, events and plot twist if you wanted a simple story that follows a single path then you're obviously looking in the wrong place and perhaps the wrong type of manga. So I commend your decision to drop it because it's not for you, I'm sure you'll find something more simple quite easily.
Have fun and goodbye.
Lol wtf I just saw the images. So that giant thing used to be human? If I remember correctly though it had four eyes... can't be bothered double checking.
Can't believe Sekine's gone.. He had a unique character design. Was a bit more interesting than some of the other, more bland new guys.
What's up with the long-haired, naked guy or whatever? I thought he was passed-out/dead in the last chapter, along with that girl.
Now that we've seen how dangerous these things are (after all, how do you fight bubbles?) I'm wondering what happened to everybody else. The guys in the pit obviously aren't giant, malformed freaks.

They should try the X-gun next time.
