    Goddamn... he got shot and yet he still held the door so that people would get out through the windows.

    Just reading about him made me almost want to cry.

    I guess there will be no exams this week for ME students.

    But kudos to this professor, he's a dual hero.

    Only one in the entire damned school with any guts, apparently. Everyone else went for the "let's stand really still and hope he doesn't shoot us!" approach. Which works great for bank robberies where the guy just wants money, but in a massacre is basically the same as holding up a sign saying SHOOT ME LETHALLY IN THE SKULL!

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,

    So I wonder how the Virginian GantZ team is doing right about now?

    ^ Erachima... I'm not sure if that was insensitive or incredibly awesome to say.

    Anyway, kick ass. That's something to be remembered for.

    I'd say it was both awesome and insensitive.

    Was he alive as he held the door closed?

    I would assume so. At least until Cho shot him through the door repeatedly.

    He survives the Holocaust and dies in a shooting? That really sucks. He is indeed a hero.
