Clan (族 , Zoku) is the 29th chapter of the Gantz manga, written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku.
We see a nearly completely naked Kei Kishimoto who only seems to be wearing the top-half of her Gantz suit, sitting on a highly modified motorcycle. At the back of the motorcycle is a huge flag which states: Kanto area strongest fighting squadron song. We only have one, life to live, ride together, fluttering into the future, CONQUER THE NATION.
The chapter begins with the Zoku Biker Gang riding loudly on their motorbikes through roads and streets, before parking at an undisclosed car park. The gang is confronted by an un-named father with his son, who refers to the bikers as "ticks" and threatens to exterminate them. Tetsuo Nemoto comes up to him and holds a knife to his face, but the man flips him over onto his back. The son seems to have a surprised and happy expression on his face, but it does not last long, as the man is viciously assaulted and humiliated by the bikers despite his pleas for help.
After brutalising the man, the bikers split up, with Tetsuo going home to his wife and infant son. Haruka and Tetsuo have a brief conversation before the latter receives a phone call and leaves the house, stating that he's going out for cigarettes.
The chapter transitions to 4 members of the gang convening at a parking lot near Jonathan's, after Tetsuo received the phone call from a woman who claimed that she wanted to meet them. It turns out to be a trap, however, and the gang is ambushed by a Rival Biker Gang. They put up a struggle, but only in vain, and the four of them are almost immediately killed, before being transported to the mysterious room by Gantz, where they see the dog, Joichiro Nishi, Kei Kurono, Kei Kishimoto and Masaru Kato.
