Dude, this is Kei2. The same Kei1, that got revived and automatically remembered seeing tae die at the hands of izumi. The difference between the two is that kei1 got to embrace her and have her, and kei2 didint.
Mind you, that was literally. 2 weeks ago roughly.
You dont get over losing the love of your life in two weeks.
I really do hope oku is setting up to give Kei2 a glimpse of tae. With Kei1 in the giant mech, and Kei2 so close to the alien world. It seems possible. Even though this story moves at snails pace.
It was a matter of days I think... still, very little time has passed.
To the picture posted in the spoiler thread page: I know it could only be Kei2, but I swear he looked like Katou in that panel with clothed Reika.
lololololololol Kei looked really ulgy in one panel he looked like one of the oni aliens and being really angry. Aww looked really cute when she cuddled up to him. But I feel like next chapter Reika will kill the alien just like katou did 1000 arms, so that means she'll die.
She's just had a Heroic BSOD moment and recovered from it, she'll give her life to kill the alien. When Kei-2 finally wakes up, he'll realize that he really did love her. Setting up for an epic NO!
People please decapitate me, I just go a bit too sentimental... O_O

How many women have given up their lives for a man they love in this fuckin manga already.
Whats funny is that the first one to do it was the bitch in 1000arms arc to save Kei's life.
I was happy that Oku remembered her and threw her face back in, just to show he doesn't forget his past issues.
Reika can be tough; and, by her standing up for Kei2 like that after his rejection, I feel that she might survive or at least give a good fight. Although it's almost like that Lara Croft look-alike woman's type of motivation.
Edit: I think the first woman-sacrificing-to-save-her-man's-ass was Sadako to Homo, then Kishimoto to Katou, then Lara Croft look-alike to Kei. Too much of this in Buddha mission!

And also, Reika standing up alone against that sucker might produce the twist that Kei2 jumps in to die for her in the end. How about that?
It has been done tons of times before but yeah...I think Reika is finally going to bit the bullet. And sorry for bringing this again...but god I'm so tired of Kurono's obsession with Tae. I liked Kurono 2 more than 1 because he could keep his mouth shut about how awesome shouting Tae's name is but damn...
Romance IMO was always one of Oku's weak points. I like what he did with Cherry and Tonkotsu's relationship, but KuronoXTae...ugh. Even Hoi Hoi had a more interesting personality than Tae.
Beyond that, since Reika is probably going to die, I feel that Kaze and Cherry may not have such a strong plot shield as I thought. Cherry is already death flagged, but after him only Kaze and the kid (that I now don't remember the name) remain from Kurono's team.
I wonder though, if Kurono 2 survives this ordeal will he try to murder Kurono 1.
what kei said in this chapter is definitely a lie, he wanted reika to run, he stood up against the alien for her(or everyone) sake, then fail.

You know looking back at this chapter it was a pretty good fight Reika we finally got to see her fight and she was pretty awesome but its hand trick knocked her back and then we saw Kei go nuts and try to take it down.
@Kliff gantz seems to not do that anymore so if they bite it then they're gone for good.
I just hate the fact oku is going to do something cheesy and have Reika die and kei2 running to TAE-CHAN!!!
@somnus He had a break from Gantz once and made another manga, it was a romance one between a hermit and step mother, the ending was so trolling me too. I'm like well thats no good >_> there is also one page that has a panel of Kurono and Reika together in their suits.
Anyway, I think it's interesting that Kei said he wanted to see Tae one last time. It made me think he was going there to die instead of prove himself.
Chapter is finally out, enjoy it!
