Cover PageEdit

This cover is part of the actual chapter it shows Shion Izumi and Kenzo Sakata with Hiroto Sakurai all in soft suits in an intense confrontation and face-off with raised weapons. Shion is holding the extendible sword while Hiroto and Kenzo are pointing X-guns at him.


The chapter begins with Shion Izumi facing off against Kenzo Sakata and Hiroto Sakurai in an intense confrontation, Kenzo predicting several of Shion's attacks before Hiroto manages to shoot him once with his X-Pistol, though it does no visible damage due to him wearing his Gantz suit.

Meanwhile, Yoshikazu Suzuki is surrounded by Naoichi Mikawa, Kaoru Iwamoto and Ryotaro Haga who all have their guns pointed towards him. They all fire at him at the count of three but Yoshikazu shoots Naoichi with his gun also, though once again, nothing happens due to all of them wearing their Gantz suits.

Ayaka Uranaka is then seen facing Joji Tomioka while crying, Ayaka stating that she will definitely kill him while Joji simply expresses a desire to have sex with her. Ayaka once again states that she will kill him but Joji says that his weapon is stronger and will kill her in a single shot, which causes her to take pause.

The chapter ends with Naoichi's, Yoshikazu's and Kenzo's Gantz suits all malfunctioning, with Shion raising his sword to strike a killing blow on Kenzo.
