Predation (捕食, Hoshoku) is the 141th chapter of the Gantz manga, written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku.
Reika Shimohira is seen from her torso upwards holding up a Gantz Sword in front of her face with both hands, in such a way that her arms cover her nipples. She is smiling and laughing while doing so.
The chapter begins with Yoshikazu Suzuki asking Kei Kurono not to shoot the Brachiosaurus Alien, stating that it is only a grass eater, which Kurono agrees to after a short dilemma. Soon after, however, he accidentally shoots it anyway with his X-Gun, blowing off its head after the delay wears off.
Haruko, Masaru and Takashi Otani are then seen outside the museum, Masaru distressed by the dying screams of Izumi Tatsumi and Haruko asking Takashi to go investigate the noise, which he reluctantly does. Once he reaches the source, he comes across Izumi being eaten by four velociraptor aliens, and The Dinosaur Master, the missions current target, spots him and commands the dinosaurs to pursue him.
Takashi takes his family and flees while the other people present simply stand around, and they are quickly surrounded by the four aliens. Keiko Morino has her arm bitten by one of the aliens and screams in pain as it begins ripping into it before she is killed when another alien comes to feast on her body. Toshiki Yuki is also killed when one of the aliens pounces on him and begins eating him, while those that haven't been attacked run away in fear.
Meanwhile, Kurono tries to tell Yoshikazu that him shooting the dinosaurs head off was simply an accident, but the headless body stands up regardless, shocking them both.
