^^I would. Just blasting things up with an X-rifle isn't kurono's style. I'm sure he'd have thought up of something extra. For example, retreating into the subway, or doing something else that would give him some kind of strategic advantage. That's the difference between Kurono and Izumi. Izumi has got mad skillz, nobody ever denied that. We are just arguing that there might have been a more efficient way that, Izumi being Izumi, just couldn't be bothered coming up with.
Gantz Fan - "ZOMFG JoO P4wn3d th3M 4ll with jUs+ joor mAdz Skillz!!!"
Izumi - "Of course joo stoopid noobs. I R T3h L337 h4XxOrZ!"
Oh well... you have to love t3h fanboys... Don't worry, being a fanboy myself, I can understand your feelings .
@Twilit, on phoenix: bleh, Suzaku, Japan. Si'Morg, Persia. Even Russia has a phoenix equivalent (Tsar, or Zar something). People who've played SMT probably remember Garuda and Benu, from India and Egypt, both of which give china a run for its money as far as the title "oldest civilisation" is concerned. Bla Bla Bla. See, i can be a smartass too ;-P.
