Cover PageEdit

A side profile of Shion Izumi is seen from the hips upwards, Shion looking towards the viewer while wearing his school clothes, holding a Gantz Sword in his left hand and his school bag is slung over his right shoulder


Shion's whirlwind attack

Shion unleashes a devastating whirlwind attack with his sword that kills more than a dozen Vampires at once

The chapter begins with a large group of Vampires led by Saitou surrounding Shion Izumi, Kei Kurono, Tae Kojima and Ryouko. The group threatens to feed on the girls while stating that they must take Shion alive, and Saitou goes up to Shion with his sword raised, though the former is completely unphased by this fact. Saitou then turns the sword left towards Ryouko and swings slightly, stopping just before her neck and cutting a few strands of her hair, the shock causing her to faint against Tae. Seeing this, Shion activates his cloaking device which surprises the Vampires for a moment, though Saitou tells them that he has just changed frequencies and that they must put in their contacts. Before they can do so, however, Shion kills one of them using his Gantz Sword before going on to slaughter more than a dozen more before the survivors are able to put on their augmented sunglasses. Shion then extends the sword in preparation to unleash a whirlwind attack, Kurono holding Tae close while he does so, and despite Saitou's warning to jump on the count of three, a massive number of Vampires are cut down, with only 5 or 6 surviving. Shion then slips away unseen, and the chapter ends with Saitou admitting that this may be more difficult than he initially believed and Kurono expressing shock as to the extent of Shion's skills.
