The King's Stand (仁王立ち, Niōdachi) is the 62nd chapter of the Gantz manga, written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku.
An unknown woman wearing the top of the Gantz Suit, Gantz Suit Gloves, an X-gun holster with X-gun while holding onto an X-shotgun, causing her breasts to be pushed outwards and present a large amount of cleavage. She is completely bare bellow her waist, showing her pubic hair and she has long hair, thick full lips and sultry eyes.
The chapter begins with Musō Tokugawa complaining at Masaru Kato for blowing a whole in the temple doors and telling them to stop what they are doing. Masaru retorts however, telling everyone present that they should treat the situation as a war that many people have died in the course of. This seems to strike a chord with Akitoshi Okazaki who cocks his X-Guns in excitement, and Kei Kurono declares that he will kill the aliens. Kiyoshi Miyafuji chimes in, however, asking whether the large statues at either side of them are the aliens they are supposed to kill. Masanobu Hojo and Masaru are skeptical, however, as they are far larger than any aliens they had encountered previously, so Kei Kishimoto suggests that they scan them with their X-Guns, which Masaru does.
When Masaru scans them with his X-Gun, he discovers that they are in fact the aliens that they are supposed to target, and so he prepares to incapacitate it with his capture gun. The other alien suddenly bursts forth from the side of the temple, however, causing the group to retreat to the temple doors. The group forces the second doors open in a panic and the chapter ends with the two aliens in close pursuit behind them.
