    ^I dunno, it's so weird that it was labeled a "suicide mission". Manga Nishi still doesn't seem like the suicidal type to me, especially considering he could kill himself at any time... but oh well.

    ^Why would u want to kill yourself, when the whole population of japan will gratefully get the job done, at least oku makes it appear like that. Just look at the special unit rushing in like true retards, or kuronos and katous train accident, mobbing seems to be serious business as well.


    But yeah, I had forgotten about the other teams for a while, if there is a 100 pointer but once again more than one team - hopefully more than just the Osaka team now, that'd be cool too. (I wanna see Nerdo and Kuwabara again)
    *Fingers crossed* He should be the new main character, seriously.

    If it's a power-up mission there better be hordes of aliens to kill. One H-gun won't make a big difference IMO. It'd be nice to see if the Osakans again or even another team from another country.

    ^Well, if Nishi don't die, most likely he's getting 100 points this time.
    Add Kaze and HS as potential candidates for 100 points too.

    I don't think Reika, Sakurai, Katou or the Suzuki are getting enough points this time - if they survive.

    As for Kurono, I'm unsure... I think he might get close to 100 points and not actually get it, but I dunno, I'm pretty sure he'll have a h-gun by the time of catastrophe so either he'll get one from another member - like Nishi or Katou back then - or as already theorized he'll find Izumi's (I find it unlikely but then again...) or he'll indeed get 100 points now.

    @ Bobo: I guess you're right, but still, Nishi doesn't seem particularly sad at being transferred to the room, actually that looks like a smile, but maybe he's just a crazy psycho to feel rejoiced even as he fails a suicidal attempt? That could be so too.

    Nishi didn't do this because he wanted to die. He wouldn't wear the suit and have a gun on him if he wanted to simply die. He was just reacting to the situation in the classroom in his own way and killed all his classmates without thinking about it too much. And the cops just nailed him.

    ^Even so, the "suicide mission" line could be easily interpreted as Nishi's intention all along, though I agree it doesn't seem so - for reasons I've mentioned here and then on my posts on Nishi's character.

    Guess I should start disregarding the narrator's lines after all - they really add close to nothing to begin with, and seeing as the tankoubon releases don't have them, they don't matter at all. But it's kind of flustrating...

    Problems I have with this chapter...


    1.Nishi being "saved" by Gantz for the next mission. Uhhh.... Why didn't Gantz do the same for Izumi? He was dying in a pool of blood like Nishi.


    2.) Kurono is not wearing a suit... If he's brought to a new mission now... He's toast.

    Could Gantz have sent Nishi one of those small black balls like Izumi had, asking him to collect more people for gantz? Hence the suicide mission (?)

    @ Peacemakerx:
    1. Gantz didn't do the same with izumi because Izumi didn't die on a mission day.

    2. That's a pretty good remark. Maybe Sakurai isn't wearing one either. Still, there's a brief time between the alarm and the paralization, right? I guess at least Kurono will have time to get his hands on the suit.

    @ dharmabums: Maybe so, but personally I think it's unlikely (with no real reason).

    Now that i think about it, why didn't nishi use stealth mode to escape from the police??
