Murderer (人殺し, Hitogoroshi) is the 182nd chapter of the Gantz manga, written and illustrated by Hiroya Oku.
This cover is part of the actual chapter it shows Kei Kurono surrounded by the three remaining rapists, Joji Tomioka, Ryotaro Haga and Naoichi Mikawa, together with Shion Izumi and Kouki Inaba. Everyone but Izumi's is pointing an x-shotgun at him while Izumi has raised his sword at him. All of them are seen wearing soft suits. Kurono himself is also holding a lowered x-shotgun. They have him cornered in a narrow street from which escape seems impossible.
The chapter begins with Kei Kurono surrounded by Joji Tomioka, Ryotaro Haga, Naoichi Mikawa, Shion Izumi and Kouki Inaba, all of whom are pointing weapons towards him. Ryotaro states that Kurono has killed Kaoru Iwamoto and Naoichi confirms this, causing Kurono to become distressed at having just become a murderer. Shion tells them all to shoot him at the count of three, but Kurono jumps to the rooftops above to avoid their fire, and they soon pursue him.
Reika Shimohira, meanwhile, is seen running with Tae Kojima before the two of them enter a taxi, and Daizaemon Kaze ties knots around the legs of a dying Yoshikazu Suzuki to stop the bleeding from his wounds.
Kurono continues to be pursued along the rooftops by Kouki, Kaoru and Joji, Kouki managing to target him with his X-Gun before firing, Kurono's clothes exploding after the delay, before turning around midair and returning fire.
Tae Kojima tells Reika that when she was taking pictures previously she saw a group of people in black show up inside the viewfinder, presumably the reason as to why she is the missions current target, and Reika asks her where the film is now.
The chapter ends with Kurono being cornered and closed in on by the pursuing hunters.
