    Having the bomb removed and being effectively "free" from any obligation to finish could be a gift for obtaining X no. of points. I don't really think it fits under "powerful weapon", but it could be a "bonus" for how much effort you put into it. Also, it also makes sense from a "save valuable players" point of view - preserve them by giving them a line of retreat, and let the cannon fodder take the beating...

    i bet these balls are Nuri's real form, but now that they have no body to play around with (regenarate/transform it), killing him should be simple, just crush the balls, Cherry would hold it with his psyckick powers, then the EMP would crush it into dust.

    The "real form" deal is off; and multiple balls? That doesn't strike me as a real form.
    I think the old guy form was his real/original form, given he changed back into it a couple of times. You think crushing the balls would be easy? As the comments stated in the end of the chapter Oka behead behemoth Nuri: "If he could be defeated so easily he..." and I forgot the rest, but you get the idea.
    And I'm not convinced Cherry's power could do much anymore; regardless of being psychic powers or what, if Nuri indeed created a sort of force field when Oka tried to blast him with the "o-palm", he could put some resistance to Cherry's powers; Sakata could hold Nuri at the expense of his life/heavy damage only. Not to mention they're several balls, not just one.

    @ Shin: nice 512, btw.

    How often have we thought something was nuri's ''real form''? He prolly has no real form.

    The truest statement/most likely theory i have read on nuri... sending seems to be the only solution, if you ask me - wait until he regroups, and send him. I think that's the purpose of the Y-Gun - If something does not have a weakness, you just warp it into another dimension/outer space/high security prison.

    Which is why I still believe in KATOUCHERRYCOMBO!!!!

    Takeshi dying would top the list for saddest moment in Gantz history. What was Kaze thinking bringing him out there?

    Very nice chapter, it's hard to tell what's gonna happen with Takeshi but the fact that Nuri hasn't stood up ever since the small balls came out of his body probably means he's gonna infest a Gantzer...

    I smell Kaze is gonna go berserk/SS in the upcoming chapter, can't wait 'till the 29th...

    BTW: Thanks Shin for postin' this and much propz the Blinktopia team.

    Not too shabby of a chapter and most of the theories posted are rather entertaining. I hope 273 isn't a complete waste of time. I personally wouldn't mind a brand new team given the utter lack of serious development and effort Oku has put into 90% of our current cast. Takeshi killing the entire team or Oku using a huge eraser to eliminate Nuri would be pretty epic and help reinforce my faith in our author.
    In order to 'acknowledge' the 'irony' I would have to learn two new words today.

    ...

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

    Cali > Shin END OF STORY.

    Every boss has a weakness of some sort. Would be fitting if Nuri's arrogance is one of the reasons he'll be defeated. I can just see him sparing Katou, Cherry, and Kaze and lose the fight somehow.

    I just kinda thought of two things. 1) That the balls are the essence of Nuri, or basically what allows him to come back from being turned into a puddle of blood.(meaning the balls are his thousand arms cheat)
    2) that it would be seriously fucked if in order to beat him you had to kill him 100 times and each death gave you 1 point out of the 100 points he is worth.
