Death Wish (自殺志願, Jisatsu Shigan) is the 109th chapter of the Gantz manga, written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku.
An unknown girl is seen in a frizzy sweater, crossing her left arm underneath her large breasts while holding an X-Pistol in her left hand and smiling.
It then transitions to the person in question about to commit suicide by strangulation after his mother states that she is leaving from outside his room. Hiroto is panting and sweating heavily, and after comments encouraging him to kill himself are shown after he posted that he was going to strangle himself the day before, he begins crying as well. While initially still, only fidgeting slightly while strangling himself, he soon begins to panic and struggle, grabbing at the belt at his neck until he manages to remove it and vomits on his carpet. When he looks up at the forum he posted on, he sees someone who states that they can help him and that they should meet up.
Kenzo Sakata meets him at his house the next day, and after Hiroto lets him in and takes him to his room, he asks Hiroto for a cup of coffee, which he complies with. Hiroto asks him if he will help him, which Sakata confirms, and when Hiroto asks him how he will help, Sakata notes a large amount of soccer stuff in his room, asking if he is part of a soccer team and if he is being bullied by other soccer members when Hiroto doesn't answer. Hiroto asks him if he will tell him how to kill himself painlessly, which Sakata denies, saying he wants to encourage him to live on, and after Hiroto asks him to leave, Sakata makes the coffee in his cup levitate above the table and in front of Hiroto's face. Sakata's nose stops bleeding when he tells Hiroto that it isn't magic, and allows the coffee to drip back into the cup after Hiroto confirms this. The chapter ends with Sakata telling Hiroto that those were his powers and that he can pass those powers onto Hiroto.
