    I would find it to be a poor story progression if after the 100 pointer they go back to fighting low level aliens like before. I really expect after this near godhood alien with followers that even the Japanese national guards couldn't handle, the story will move to a new stage.

    The clash of the daily life reality and the gantz night missions have clashed and merged so much together that you just can't expect one of those typical missions that took only 5 chapters to finish. And I don't expect them to be fighting a stronger monster, my imagination fails me at how there's a stronger monster than nuri, and fans would be lining up waiting to kill Oku if he starts another longer mission arc fighting stronger opponent than the nuri one, without shedding any light into the gantz background.

    ^It took two years to kill Nuri - Not sure if even the most harcore of fans will be able to endure another round of this.

    Scary post, yet it probably will unfold a lot of content in a close future.

    Considering the whole character that Reika was shown to us up to now, she's lackin' a lot of stuff... and she's been around for a long time. Even though she might die, Kurono has to come back first. There's a lot of stuff between Kei, Tae and her that hasn't beeen unfolded yet imo.

    twinoceans and Shin_Igami last posts' have been true to the conclusion of the Osakan arc. Up to now we haven't seen missions droppin' down SO many questions around Gantz so Oku REALLY as to be good in his 10 next chapter.

    Personally I'll be a fan forever, Nuri DIDN'T DIED IN A SQUISHY WAY!!! HS, the well-known protagonist slayer, went on 1vs1 after Nuri got snipped badly, after a short yet-intensive fight Katou gets the last deadly hit.

    Nothing wrong about that imo, y'all just can't come with creative endings anyway for this arc that was fullfilled with Oku's pure madness!!

    So there won't be a short mission against weak aliens but there also won't be a longer mission with stronger monsters?
    What other opions are there?

    The way I see it there can't be such a long mission again (ever). We'll get the aftermath now and see what conclusions to draw from this mission (not that there are many). And then the next mission will either be a short or a normal one. It could be easy or a bit hard (around the dino level), but nothing like the Nuri arc.

    Yeah your right Bobo but we haven't seen weapon upgrades in action before (considerin' Izumi got killed before using it).

    For now we know that ressurecting people is nearly useless, even Tokyo's teamwork did small against Nuri's strenght/regeneration skills. Whatever may be everyone's outcome, most of 'em will be forced to upgrade their weapons.

    Just remember that in the end, it was the H-Gun that killed Nuri.

    Osakan arc shown us that releasing out from Gantz is like slammin' in the nails of your own coffin and that revivin' people only makes their lives useless (what Sakata said). So the only option left (left-aside Kurano's revival) is upgradin' to be more effective in the missions, which shall probably be even more apocalyptic.

    Currently Team Tokyo is still too weak, so I'm not interested in seeing a weak team get a bunch of super weapons when it's not their specialty (Kaze, Cherry etc..). Die or leave so new characters can come in. It's a very good time to bring back old vets like what Gantz once did for Izumi.
    etufo: HS is most likely going to die sooner or later. Who will kill the cool character killer?

    Popo: well, obviously going by that logic, HS will have to kill himself...

    So, this idea's been circulating around for a while now, that asking to be released from Gantz means you're automatically dead, and I'm trying to figure out why this line of thought started. I mean, the only two people we've seen get out of Gantz so far are Izumi (before we first met him) and Kurono. Judging from the 50&#37; survival rate, I'm not going to say it's a certainty that everyone who gets out dies. Also, it seems to me that the only reason Kurono died was because some of the Gantzers were shown on TV (IIRC) and because his brother knew it was him. The question also remains that if the vampires had known he was out of Gantz and had no memory of his time in Gantz, would they still have attacked him?

    Have I missed something here?

    Edit: But yeah, I agree that the best option would be for them to stay in and upgrade their weapons. And for the record, I'll be very, very disappointed if we get another god-moding baddie in the next hunt without some sort of break in-between.

    Eh... back when izumi got out vampires weren't tracking the gantz members, and alien fights didn't blow up towns and destroyed a bunch of people.

    Now, gantzer gets out of gantz and remembers nothing about it. Then sees aliens, "OH NOES, ALIENS!" and has no way to defend himself (for evidence: see the army fighting against the aliens in osaka).

    Sure, it's not 100% sure death, but it's VERY likely to die because he's defenseless against vampires and aliens

    If I'm on the same pages as you, that's not really a prediction of anything. Nuri looked around and found the spot where Reika was hiding. That's why he said "found you!" and about to shoot her, but Katou slammed him first with the h-gun. It was put in very slow pace to show the intensity of the moment whether Katou gonna shoot him first, or Nuri gonna kill Reika. This is why it took 2 pages or so for that "straring moment." It's a very typical technique in movies making or comic writing.

    What I mean is that the next arc gonna have to shed some light into the gantz background, whether it's during the gantzers' daily day lives, or along with some night time mission. The point is "shed some light into the gantz background." Going back to "fight monsters for 1 night, go back home to sleep, and....that's it!" type of mission like in the earlier stage of the manga won't be appearing any time soon.

    Oni mission> kurono knows some background about gantz, the vampires> and then the Nuri mission are all huge steps foward in the story progression, going back to fighting typical fight and forget monsters really contradicts the progression of the story.
