    There's a van at the fountain. It looks like maybe a news crew arrived to see the moving statues and were killed?

    Although on p8 of the raw, you can see behind the angel's outstretched hand, in front of the mannequins, what looks like a normal person just strolling down the street, as if they can't even see what's going on. That's weird - they should be able to see or else there would be a shitload more people there. I went to this place a few months ago and you could barely even see the fountain for all the throngs of people gathered around it.

    Also, for my two cents, I'd translate the title and the names given to the aliens in the final phrase as something more like "Beautiful Wisdom" or "Beautiful Expressions of Knowledge" or something like that.

    Well, after seeing the raw and the chapter itself... I don't think the dying italian gantzer is the Inaba of that team. I'd say he's just stating facts, something like "Too many people with bigger weapons have died already, you are likely to do the same".

    And damn, it had been a while since I had seen a gantz chapter showing Teh Fear like it was shown in this one. graaagh, two weeks

    there is by standers.. omfg. haha and they are standing there like nothing.

    look at page 8

    these gantzters also reminds me of happy tree friends... how come the one who got stomped or kicked in his face didnt get knocked down instead of getting his body break in an half.

    maybe that suit was broken already? or it was really high speed ? doesnt usually happen tho

    So we have the Tokyo team split up -

    Kurono and Katou (BAMF pair, they're bound to find a way to fight the statues - I reckon the ygun'll help - more on that later)

    Reika, Cherry, Old Man (I really dont see them getting points and of all the groups they have the smallest chance of survival, except maybe Inaba, but he got away from the Oni when his little gang got burned so...)

    Kaze and Takeshi (I see one of this pair dying and the other will have 100 at the end and revive the other. Either that or they'll both die)

    Nishi (He'll get points, but probably'll end up dead or injured at least)

    The Vampires (see Kaze and Takeshi. I highly doubt Kill Bill will survive)

    Inaba (He is immortal! I think he'll find a gap and run like a screaming girl from those statues)

    As for weapon physics -

    The xgun functions, as taken from the manual, by firing "compressed energy" into the target. Once inside the target it will expand thus destroying the target from within.
    Conjecture - As seen with Nishi, it has an x-ray capable scope capable of seeing through solid matter. The xgun has a preference for organic targets. If no organic targets are in the scope when fired, the compressed energy will destroy whatever its fired into, thus Nishi's bag stays in one piece as the energy is small enough to go through the material to reach its target, whilst using the xgun at a wall (like Blondy in the Onion hunt) will destroy it.

    The ygun, as taken from the manual, launches a set of laser designating rockets connected via rope at the target. When used against the target a second time, the laser designators activate and the target is "sent".
    Conjecture - Based on previous uses, when launching the rockets, the top trigger is for lock-on and the bottom is to fire. The bottom will fire ropes even when other ropes have been fired. Aiming the ygun at ropes already fired and pulling the top trigger alone activates the laser designators and sends the target.

    Also, Im all Gaar for Augustus as the Boss too

    So i guess these aliens are the y gun type, or have a weakness we did not see so far.

    Why are there no effective H-Gun hits on the aliens? Cannot wait for next chap
    Let's pay attention at page 7, where we can see a statue clearly affected by the h-gun.

    Now that you mention it, it could be so. And you're most likely right, they do look like mannequins.

    The mission is just messed up, how the hell are they supposed to kill something like a stick. Or a pair of legs? They don't have eyes... how are they even finding the gantzers... What's next? A pair of boobs/penis floating in the air?
    You're ignoring the form os the aliens might be just a shell. We've seen cases in which it didn't matter which part of the body was destroyed if the core was intact, being the most notable example the Kannon statue, aka 1000 arms. We've also seen an Oni with only his legs leading Reika to a trap.
    There's also the matter of more "advanced" aliens being able to detect the signal they emit.

    There are lots of cars, actually.

    Excellent remark, I hadn't noticed the guy walking. Thanks!

    It does seem strange. If there were at least a considerable amount of dead suitless bodies, then it'd be less odd, but there's only one (at least that's the only one I've seen).

    Also, for my two cents, I'd translate the title and the names given to the aliens in the final phrase as something more like "Beautiful Wisdom" or "Beautiful Expressions of Knowledge" or something like that.
    Directly from the Japanese, you mean? I took the liberty of changing drastically both of them because I thought it sounded really odd and I couldn't make anything out of it with the raws (usually I translate from the Spanish script, because my Japanese is very limited)

    Cali, you think this might be an "invisible" mission like in the first missions?

    You can describe the entire Gantz series with that line.
