Cover PageEdit

Kei Kurono and Masaru Kato wearing Gantz Suits. Kurono's Suit has an X-Gun holstered in it.


The chapter begins in the aftermath of Kosuke Nakajima's murder at the hands of Joichiro Nishi, where the latter has just been teleported away by Gantz. Masaru Kato is trying to calm down the understandably panicked group of people, explaining that they are going to be teleported outside of the room, before Kei Kurono shouts at him, asking how he will survive without his suit. Masaru calms him down, stating that he will be putting Kurono's life before his own in the mission, before Kurono begins teleporting away. Kei Kishimoto believes that Kurono will be fine, telling Masaru that she didn't have a suit the first time she was teleported. When asked how she survived, she responds, saying the Onion Alien just ran right past her.

Kurono is then shown to be a disembodied floating on a road, screaming as a truck comes barreling towards him. He attempts to move his body (which is still in the room) away, but this does not cause his head to move. Just before he is hit, however, the truck drives just past the right of him, saving his life. He then sees the Tanaka Alien, his current target, right in front of him, and, panicked, begins to feel around the floor of the room for his X-Gun. He grabs one but drops it almost immediately, but Kishimoto gives him her own X-Gun pistol before his body is fully teleported away. The chapter ends with the Tanaka Alien about to walk past Kurono, Kishimoto's X-Gun in hand.
