Chapter is out, you can get it here
From what I see here....
George Clooney is a doctor?
That big monster is back?
Kei is being transferred...zaibatsu again?
I don't know if he is a doctor or not but everybody can stop a bleeding like that, even Kaze did in the Tae mission.
That monster is this one (from the previous chapter):
His head looks like a giant hand...maybe it is a hand?
Wait what. Kei is gone. Again. Seperated from Tae. Dear Christ that is preposterous. At least this time is didn't appear as though Kei was worried...didn't appear to be concerned with the tranfer on a re-read but im not 100% sure. Did Nishi transport him?
Really curious to see what the old man was saying since it took up a good chunk of the chapter. With that grin on his face and helping Nerdo im sure something encouraging, maybe something about fighting in a war or something at one point, who knows!
Still very confused about the whole situation with Tae and hoping a translationg helps. Is it a "But now i have to go to the final battle!" type thing? All very strange.
Regarding the ending: Let me quote someone from another forum about a completely different subject:
"Oh fucking no!"
AAAHAHAHAHA. Oku you son of a bitch. I literally just loled at the ending at work. This is what Gantz is all about people. Take notes.
My exact reaction upon seeing the last page...I kid you not.
Other than that last bit of humor, I thought it was a pretty good chapter aside from not knowing a word that was said. Pretty good action, and Clooney looks to be doing something for once. I really think this is the first time we've seen him do something, truly; aside from randomly popping up at the end of battles, so that's good to know he's not some spectator. Poor, poor nerdo... I'm truly tiring of these abominations of aliens though. I STILL can't actually make out a form or figure that doesn't look like a bunch of jumbled CGI effects. Do not want. We need those giants back so the battles don't just look like they're cutting down balls of mush. Which I assume will happen next chapter, thank god. I'm wondering who else got transported, that would be very interesting if it was just Kei but somehow I doubt that. I do wonder what the Zaibatsu group has been up to all this time; perhaps watching the 'games' that have been taking place on the big screen? Surely it isn't just broadcasted to them; now that would be funny... "Oh hey, those fools survived. ALLLLLLright, place your bets men! Oh shit... That geeky kid just lost a foot. BILL! PAY UP!"
I thought this was going to happen but shocked that Tae didn't get transfer because she was holding on to his hand. Maybe she needed to hug him like the vampires did or maybe she was just a scaredee cat and let go of his hand. Yeah I hope we don't go through the same bs with Tae again rofl...she should be okay because Fra is there, Fra will prob take her back to her joint. Next chapter should be awesome, this chapter was just kinda pointless/trolling and building up for next chapter. Can't wait XD
It could be because now that the Gantz database is ruined, they can't add any more people. But then again... Tae is already in the memory. Hmm.
Anyway, at this point, I feel that the Tae arc has concluded. It's safe for her to be killed off panel because she is now completely useless to the plot.
Actually, she transcend useless in a way that a new word must be invented in order to adequatly describe her role in the series. Until that word has been stumbled upon, she must remain out of sight, saving her ultimate demise for the precise moment humanity reaches the next phase of vocabular enlightment. In fact, she should face an ending gruesome enough that it requires a new word to go with it.
Remember folks: Sanity is for the weak!
Rara will probably take Tae in. It keeps her and Tae plot relevant as well.
Also, God damn it, Oku, etc.

Hey guys. Been waiting 10 chs each time I read Gantz, pacing is way better.
Read about 13 chapters straight just now and it seems to be picking up. Scary factor was back when they transfered to the death arena. Tae finally wrapped up! Tae should be safe with Kei's new alien friend protecting their love.
It's so crazy right now with all the nostalgic characters together! (and the plot armor is ridiculous) Most intense part was almost losing Nishi and Takeshi.
Looks like I'll have to wait about 20 chapters before this goes anywhere new and interesting. See ya next year.
also lol at the dreadlocked african alien in 252.

Ehh, it was fun guys, but I'm going to drop this. It was a lot of fun discussing the chapters the last few years (although I have recently been only lurking this year... so I doubt anyone remembers me). Maybe I'll see some of you guys around on the other series forums.
I really wanted to stay with this series until the end, but 5 years of this is enough. I'm not trying to bash anyone who liked this chapter... but I kind of had different hopes.
How's an alien going to be African?
Son of a bitch.
Took us an entire year to get Tae back. The whole fucking year.
I expected she would die or something but this is ridiculous. Back where we started, and we had to sit through Tae escaping so many contrived situations in order to get there.
Anyway I wonder where Kei's gone, and why Tae didn't transfer as well, considering they were still holding hands (because he didn't notice the transfer coming on this time?). Probably another job for the zaibatsu.
What's up with that monster chilling out on the ceiling? He's got to fucking get in there or all his buddies are going to get wiped out. (although as usual I cant really tell whats even happening during the action scenes any more).
