Split (分裂, Bunretsu) is the 178th chapter of the Gantz manga, written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku.
The chapter begins with Shion Izumi facing off against Kenzo Sakata and Hiroto Sakurai. Kenzo predicts several of Shion's attacks before Hiroto manages to shoot him once with his X-Pistol, though it does no visible damage because he is wearing his Gantz suit.
Meanwhile, Yoshikazu Suzuki is surrounded by Naoichi Mikawa, Kaoru Iwamoto and Ryotaro Haga who all have their guns pointed at him. At the count of three, they fire at him. Yoshikazu shoots too, at Naoichi. Once again, nothing happens due to all of them wearing their Gantz suits.
Ayaka Uranaka confronts Joji Tomioka while crying. Ayaka states that she will kill him while Joji simply expresses a desire to have sex with her. Ayaka once again states that she will kill him. Joji threatens her, convincing her that his weapon is stronger and will kill her in a single shot, which causes her to take pause.
The chapter ends with Naoichi, Yoshikazu and Kenzo's Gantz suits malfunctioning and Shion raising his sword to strike a killing blow on Kenzo.
