First of all, this seems like a great chapter, even so the milf died and HS is stealing the points (does he even know about points? Or is he just killing Nuri out of fun?)
And secondly, only because oku once wrote in the manga that Kurono is dead doesn't mean that he really is.
Sorry but Oku isn't the most consistent storyteller, for example in a few chapters Kurono spoke in third person about the events like they all already happend (it was in the chapter after where he read about the end of the world on nishis site) and this seemed really important but hasn't been picked up again after that.
But please can we all wait and see if Kurono will ever be revived? This whole talk about him is pretty tiresome...
I hope HS chooses the weapon with his 100 points (he must be the first person in Gantz that got 100points in his first mission)
and i'm waiting for the alien with OVER 9000 POINTS!! ... no, not really, and hopefully not multiple 100 Pointers in one mission... maybe in a chapter with the German or American Team so that we can see the awesomeness of them.
btw, HS seems to have a new cigarette?
