Cover PageEdit

We see Kei Kishimoto lying down in a string bikini of which the right part of her top has been undone revealing much of her breast, she is also seen wearing the Gantz Suit boots and gloves while holding onto an X-gun.


The chapter begins with Kei Kurono surrounded on all sides by angry Tanaka Aliens and the Tanaka Alien boss stood directly in front of him.

It then quickly cuts to Masanobu Hojo, Kei Kishimoto and Masaru Kato who are chasing after a fleeing Tanaka Alien, before finding its corpse on the road, presumably after it was run over by a vehicle. They then go to look for Ryota Sugihara and Kayo Sugihara.

After this, it briefly cuts to Tetsuo Nemoto and Haruya Numata who are contemplating whether to go in after Kurono as he has not returned after going inside of the building.

We then See Kishimoto and Masanobu outside of the garage which Ryota and Kayo were hiding in, after telling Masaru to go hide due to his suit malfunctioning. On three, they enter the garage with their guns up, to find the two Tanaka Aliens hunched over Kayo and Ryota's bodies. They fire at the Tanaka Aliens, who do not die immediately, before the aliens explode in a violent fashion. Masaru comes in after this, and after checking their bodies confirms that Ryota and Kayo are in fact dead. Masanobu then asks him how long they have left, to which he responds by saying they have 15 minutes. Masanobu then questions how many of them will actually survive, at which point the chapter cuts to Kurono once again.

Kurono pulls out his X-Gun pistol and says that he is not going to die, and the chapter ends with the boss Tanaka Alien hunching over and looking down at Kurono just above eye level, and at extremely close proximity.
