    The Artwork doesn't look like Oku's but we can see Nishi, Izumi and the guys from Izumi's Flashback , hope we get a translation soon.

    Is that really Izumi and Nishi? I'm missing Oku already, but at least that girl is kind of cute.
    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...

    Indeed. They look nothing like they should at all, but yes - the girl is kind of cute.
    In order to 'acknowledge' the 'irony' I would have to learn two new words today.

    ...

    ...And I'm not going to do that.

    I want to know the complete scene from the guy in the cover... his suit is wasted and we can see the despair in his face, also as we can observe in the other images he has some kind of relation with the cute girl... I'm gonna miss the illustrations... lets hope the script to be good enough

    "HYPER SOLID ACTION NOVEL"

    Yup. It's exactly a lack of Advertising like that that's always kept James Patterson down.

    Rather like the art, it'd be nice to see spinoffs from other illustrators, especially foreign ones.

    A Translation its out at MH thanks to Cnet:

    http://mangahelpers.com/t/cnet128/releases/14557

    Here are some details and a little summary:

    Original History: Oku Hiroya
    Novel: Kusakabe Masatoshi
    Ilustrations: Yusuke kozaki

    Title: [-0008]An unexpected change in a common day

    The main character is a middleschooler called Kashihara Ooki, the chapter starts in the middle of a mission with him running from an alien that looks like the endboss of the Buddamission, then we go back to before Ooki's first dead and we learn that he died trying to save a Kid that was falling from a balcony (Nishi?) he wakes up in the Gantz Room where an experienced gantzer girl called Jinguu Akari is instructing the noobs about whats going on , the mission starts and its explained that the target is an Alien called "Shoutoku Alien" the chapter ends as the Alien appears.

    It is not clearly explained if the Guys in the Room are actually Izumi or Nishi, the Alien its based on a figure of japanese history:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Shōtoku .

    Not bad for now. But I guess Izumi and Nishi won't be mentioned until the end of the mission
