I was hoping to see more of the mech, not just the foot.
Nuri seems invincible now, it went to
shooting lasers from its head -> Crushing people with seduction -> Unclear/Unseen attacks
What next? Its gonna turn invisible too?
Good Chapter... Although I am feeling a little "Majin Buu" syndrome from Nuri...

The shrinking perimeter is a cool way to replace the time limit since it's more deadly. Now instead of losing points for failing to kill all the aliens their heads explode if they take too long. That sould get everyone from Tokyo more energized about the next mission.

I think at this point the only thing i can see stopping Nuri would be if Oka has some kind of super powered Y gun on that mech of his, otherwise Nuris gonna keep transforming till they all die of old age...or just from being killed by one of his different forms.
Also, at this point whats everyone think Nobu's condition is at, he was pretty much dead before, think he still has a pulse?
I never expected him to kill all the monsters by himself. After all this time, I just wanted to see him do more than shoot a monster and turn invisible. But with his arm gone, he's most likely done for the rest of the mission.

What exactly do you mean?

I don't think the odds were against him.
I think Nishi might not be great like Izumi or Kurono but I don't think he's a bitch. I think his problem is that he's easily thrown off. It seems that he panics when he can't go invisible.
He was alone in Gantz for a long time, I assume. That means he had to take out every alien in those missions. He used noobs as canon fodder he couldn't have had any help from anybody else. Since he was disappointed by the points he got from the onion alien I bet he's faced much stronger aliens. If he left even one alive he could not have gotten to 90 points.
He had to kill every alien in his missions and it's obvious no one until Kurono and gang came along had scored any points.
This is all supposition on my part, though.
I think he's not on Izumi or Kurono's level, but is above the others. He just has obvious weaknesses like his dependance on stealth and lack of teamwork.
His suit was already messed up from the gang member shooting him and he couldn't move in the water as fast as those things could. They were also able to detect him when he was invisible, which probably wasn't a problem for him before. So...broken suit, worthless invisibility, and reduced movement versus the bot's increased movement. It definitely seems like the odds were against him to me.
