Cali, I totally agree that the implant is probably responsible for all that stuff you said.
@ Duststorm - I'd have to read it again, but Im sure Reika talked to the taxi driver with Tae. If someone can hear a Gantzer, then they can probably see them.
Btw, yeah a Zoku is a street biker, like Kaneda and Tetsuo from Akira. Some have links to the Yakuza and a Yakuza could be a zoku and vice-versa, but they are two different groups.
And yeah, my Hoi-Hoi card beats your Nuri card cos its Panda type!
Fine then I activate my "Giant breasted woman made of giant breasted women" card. Everyone knows Pandas are afraid of nipples. And a thousand nipples, fuggedabowdit. Thus increasing my card level to "Ultimate BSer" for a round so I beat Hoi-Hoi. Can we call that form Nuri took Thousand Nipples? I like the sound of it.
Back on track...About Akira-Do you think George's death of being crushed to death by a giant creature was Oku's tip of the hat to Katsuhiro Otomo? Hell we have two Kei's in Gantz and one in Akira and now this? Maybe Oku was a huge Otomo fan? I never saw him mention it in an interview but then I ain't seen many of them. I wonder if Kishimoto will then become inspired by Oku because I can't wait for "Thousand Nipple No Jutsu".
Since there isn't much to discuss on-topic, at least for now:
Not only does Reika is the only one seen talking to the driver when they enter the vehicle ("where to?" "... the closest station...). but she also leaves the car after a while. Now, even if we consider Tae as having repeated what Reika said (unlikely), Reika still left the car, while Tae stood there. Suddenly the doors open, just like that, and the person on the back is talking to herself? Don't think so, therefore they were visible to normal people on the Tae hunt indeed.

I have a hard time believing that if they were visible that no one in the neighborhood noticed the little explosions and all the yelling at Kurono.Not to forget the screaming Tae did before she died. Also the yelling Kurono did when Tae was dieing.
Also it was night time so I cannot imagine that there is a lot of noise to cover it. I mean some people were like what, 7m away from all the action. Even the little girl in the onion alien mission notice the wall blow up. The only logical explanation is that all the nearby neighbors are deaf or very heavy sleepers.
^ A much more reasonable explanation, commonly mentioned, is Oku being lazy.
Yup that one too, and probably the most likely one.
^They might have noticed, saw the cosplay, and decided it was a movie being shot

Neighbor B: Yeah the special effects were so good. The exploding floor looked cool.Also the exploding limbs were not too shabby either.I could swear that young man beating that teenager was real.
Neighbor A:Also that scene with that girl in pajamas was so dramatic: How she ran then got sliced down. The acting looked very convincing with all the yelling and screaming. Then she disappeared and then everyone else did too.
Neighbor B:Yeah about the disappearing maybe some kind of special effect or hologram. Man, special effects are advance nowadays.
Neighbor A:Though one think is strange I did not see any camera or any kind of machinery, did you see any?
That only goes to prove the director was a genius
