    I really doubt we'll see tougher aliens in the following missions, considering the Osakans, who are very much more experienced/geared unto doin' some alien massacre, have been gg'd by Nuri and co.

    This mission is by far, the longuest we've encountered yet, this can't drag on forever and the upcoming missions won't be that long for sure... Unless the Japan team either start upgrading their weapons or make revive some deceased Gantzers (somehow I think the Osakans might do the same)

Unless the tokyo team powers up fast or the focus change to other teams temporarily.

    Also on the Tengu, he could double his size (compare the time he's talking to HS and when he's fighting Katou and holding Nobuo), so he should've been physically stronger than the Oni boss too, plus a flyer and other monsters summoner.

    And, as a side note, long time no see, huh?
    Yeah, but I think we'll see more 100 pointers for sure if Tokyo keeps teaming up with other teams. I personally don't mind 4 volumes of missions each time as long as they focus on outside the room events in between. I can't imagine the next 4-8 volumes being missions again; everyone is dying to see what happens to HS and Katou.

    Forgot to add the fact that Tengu stopped a BFG attack with just raw strength.

    Offtopic: Yeah life has been getting more busy for me. Never thought I'll be able to go without a laptop for a few days.

    The current theme of this arc is catastrophe, it has alrady been questioned if they will start going in several missions non-stop or ven fight more aliens outside missions, so i feel the in-between-missions parts are going to change drastically to what they used to be.

    Like the Chibi alien attacking Kurono at school times a hundred?

    Mostly, I have no problems with the mission length either, only that I fear it could halt off-room interaction that right now would seem pretty interesting. There's Kikuchi, there are the vampires, there is gantzers no more being a secret...

    Now, as far as the second phase being titled as Catastrophe goes, this initial mission has been quite up to the expectations, but I think there's gonna be an even bigger event, maybe related to what Nishi wrote on his website about "the end of the world", which brings me to a certain question: since I'm brazilian, and my native language is portuguese, styles of narratives vary somewhat from english or japanese. Mostly concerning the use of past tenses. I recall Kurono stating "At that time I didn't think that the recent events and the 'end of the world' could be related..." (vol 10) That got me under the impression it was Kei narrating what he felt in his past from a distant future in which he already knew exactly what the 'end of the world' was all about. But I think it's pratically the only time a future impression exists in his narration, so most likely this thinking is off. But still, I thought about posting it since that passage came to mind as soon as he was proclaimed dead and 2nd phase took off; if it is indeed a future narration of something after the end of the world - which could be 'catastrophe' - then Kei would definetely be revived.

    Don't you guy notice that in this mission every gantzer, aliens, mecha and so on could be seen by people, tv & army?

    It's obviously that after this mission nothing will be like first.
    Chances are, there will be 200 pointers in the near future. Revealing one of the strongest bosses in the beginning of the second phase seems stupid.
    Yeah and than the 300 points alien and the 1 million points alien who can destroy the world with a finger =_=

    Thanks to God this is Gantz not DBZ...

    What's your point? Tokyo carried out the Oni mission among public eyes without much if any notably incriminating news coverage whatsoever stemming from it dispite the fact Boss Oni made a huge scene. This would lead anyone to believe mech, 100 point alien, visible Gantz participants or not that the odds of a news crew collecting footage of anything more than the aftermath is fairly slim and nearly inconsequential.
    In order to 'acknowledge' the 'irony' I would have to learn two new words today.

    ...

    ...And I'm not going to do that.
