    Hopefully a chapter or two will be dedicated to some other teams since the idea is really interesting to me. The Israeli team in particular sounds interesting because most of the the people probably had military training and there are bound to be a few Palestinians in the mix making a neat team dynamic.

    From Nishi and Izumi's conversation it seemed like the countries were in competition with one another.

    Oku just needs to make an issue about someone logging onto Nishi's website for the sake of exposition.

    Nishi fans will be happy finally having an update ^^
    Man... I can't wait for this mission to end. It isn't about Nuri never-ending shape-change but because I'm eager to see some off-room developments, damn it! With the way things are now, I think we'll finally have new info on Gantz, either from Oka, Anzu, Nishi or Kikuchi.

    Well, there is always the off-chance of someone getting a 100 points and rezzing dumbass (I am being sarcastic...)
    Remember HS too - Is he still eligible to be a member of club vampire, or do the noobs throw him, making him angry enough to start a massacre...

    My prediction for chapters after 273, is that Oka and HS will fight, with HS looking to use Oka's death as a bargaining chip to get him back in the vampires/aliens good graces while he is still inside Gantz, with the tokyo team.

    Kato will get the final kill on Nuri (with help from the rest of the Tokyo team), but will not revive Kei, instead reviving Takeshi, who will have died during the mission. He will cry manly tears at the sight of Kaze's manly tears at the death of Takeshi, causing him to do so.

    Both Gantz teams will be merged together, causing Anzu to move in with Katou, and they will get all lovey-dovey. Kaze will train Takeshi up to be a mini-kaze. Sakurai will eventually revive his master, against his masters wishes, probably in the next mission. Reika will keep Kurono angsting, while also angsting about her lack of leadership skills. Nishi will be Nishi. Oka will be Oka. Nerdo will be Nerdo. Inaba will finally man up, and become a decent Gantzer.

    The team will encounter a mission on the far horizon (1-3 missions after this one), and realise that the lack the unifying spirit that they had with Kurono. They will enter a mission, each with the goal of getting 100 points to revive kurono, Kurono will then come back with no memories of ever being free, and lead the team once more.

    ^ That's a bit too happy to be true.

    As for HS having Oka killed, it's an idea, but I don't think it'd work, they don't even know of Oka's importance. I think HS will play the good guy for a while in order to get more information out of the hunters.

    On the wild predictions side, you know what would look nice? If Reika became the next Izumi. She's already realized she isn't as selfless as she tried to be when she revived Tae. She also decided on not taking risks rather than saving innocent people. Now all she needs is having a strong reason to hate the aliens instead of doing it because she has no choice. Maybe if she were to be raped? (Kuwabara fucks aliens, no reason for them not to rape humans)

    But I wonder if the Tokyo team will get to stock 100 points again. Fast-forwading things up... I'm eager to see the next mission. If the next mission were the vampires, for instance, the team could get lots of points easily, since the vampires seem to have an endless amount of minions and are fairly easy to kill (if someone uses a sword or a light bulb). However, having some different alien horde would be nice, especially if they were strong aliens, but not as immortal as Nuri.

    And Kurono should be back, but let's say, after 5 more missions, when the team's already pretty different and having changed their perspectives (with the exception of Katou, maybe), so that Kurono's presence or not won't even be all that significative. Seeing a Kurono/Katou action would be very interesting, since they never got to actually work together back at the beginning. Also, new members would be a treat, to tell the truth, even though the current team is ok, some new meat that don't die as soon as they appear would be good.

    Also, the best way to keep Takeshi alive would be if Nishi advised them to use the stealth mode. And Kaze could agree with it after witnessing Takeshi almost dying. If Takeshi dies too soon, and Kaze tries to revive him, the revival thing will get tiresome.

    The most unexpected and son of bitch thing that could happen would be if, now that things are changing, Gantz removed the third option. It's true that that option works wonders to hold people inside the game, but without new weapons they won't go too far. Heck, even with stronger weapons the Osakans met a miserable defeat. So, considering missions are getting harder, can't really seem the team surviving without some miraculous improvements.

    Given the possibility of other Gantz cells across the world, I wouldn't be surprised if a side story were made for that purpose. If the Gantz series becomes popular in the U.S. through the Dark Horse Localization, then someone might try to get the rights to a make a movie. I could imagine a Gantz Movie set around a team in New York, it wouldn't interfere with the manga storyline and could easily fit as canon for fans.

    From Nishi and Izumi's conversation it seemed like the countries were in competition with one another.
    Hmm, maybe the players are not the only ones who rack up points.

    Oku just needs to make an issue about someone logging onto Nishi's website for the sake of exposition.
    He could devote a few pages to showing the web pages of Nishi's site or even create an actual website.

    I think that for more like national pride then the different countries getting points. Izumi said he wanted to prove that Japan was the best country, if I remember correctly. That definitely seemed more like national pride the way he said it. Kinda how like, in America we say America's the greatest free country in the world and all this propaganda stuff. That kind of stuff is in a lot of Japanese media from what I've seen, same as American media.

    ^^ if you head upon Gantzotaku you'll see a french reproduction of what Nishi has done... literally.

    I can translate if anyone wants, it's no biggie.

    BTW, here's a sick theory my hommie came with yesterday...

    What is the reason behind Nuri's incredible strenght? How come the other two powerful aliens (over 50 points each) were rocked without too much difficulty compared to the boss which is worth 100... What if Nuri was actually underrated, that he's worth a lot more than that... Matter of fact, since two teams merged upon killin' him, everyone that'd survive this misson (aka the best Gantzers) would receive 100 points. There's another fact that makes me think Nuri is underrated, Oka has already landed the last blow/slain a 100 pointer before but he's scared about Nuri, even sayin' that he's not strong enough to completly beat him.

    Nuri's death would lead Tokyo unto some upgradin' so they'd be able to compete properly in the further missions...

    Anyway the spoilers for 273 aren't lookin' too good, I mean we knew Kaze would try to fight Nuri but can Muscle Rider prove that he's an even better fighter than Oka?!? (who cleared 7 times...) Maybe his bow to protect Takeshi shall prevail...
