Now that you think about it, it is a bit ridiculous how big the aliens actually are. I wouldnt be surprised if the gantz mechs were double their height.
Ay if Reika's a fanservice character, I'll vouch that she's at least more developed than Kishimoto.
e.g. Fired a gun more, and gotten naked less.
And I doubt what he's holding/wearing for the cover-art should be taken very seriously.
^ Reika definitely is a more developed character, regardless of how annoying her guts can be. It's just that Kishimoto has to die there in the Buddha mission.
Anyway, I wish that I could see that oneshot.
And, I want to see a non-Cherry-esque fight between Kei1 (or whoever in the Gantz team is available) and an alien soldier. I guess that implies more challenge.
She's not a weak character when it comes to battle if she chooses to fight. I still think Reika is one of the better fighters still in the current team plus or minus the current top here and there. I hope she will show off something (nooo not flash her ero ero boobs @ monster) in the next chapter when she goes off to save Kei. This better not be a repeat of Kato x Kishimoto.
She's not particularly strong either. Every other character brings something unique to the fight. Kei goes a little crazy, Cherry's psychic, Kaze's the Muscle Rider, Nishi's ruthless (even though he's been pretty shit so far I'm convinced he'll do something awesome by the end). Reika's special skill is tourniquets.
Too late. We got Anzu.
To be honest I want something to exploit Kaze's obvious weakness. Relies too much on his fantastic martial arts.
