As Kato struggles to maintain control, Kishimoto realises
that with her new body comes a new hope. Unfortunately, before
she can act on those options, the second game begins. As a
new group of players is initiated into the world of the sphere,
the survivors of the first game are confronted with an entirely
different breed of opponent... one that's smarter, more aggressive
and more organised... and that's before the real game even
episode 13 (Please Die) Kurono stumbles into a room
where the final boss alien is hiding out. For some reason
aliens surround Kurono and treat him like a friend, that is
until he accidentally steps on one of the little chicks that
is wandering around. Suddenly the aliens turn nasty, and the
boss alien suddenly notices the intruder. Kurono opens fire,
which results in the building collapsing and saving him from
certain doom. While Kurono managed to escape, so does the
boss alien - who picks up Kurono and soars high into the sky.
With time running out for them to complete the "game",
how can Kurono kill the last boss in time?
Goodbye sees everyone returned to the real world after
a successful mission - that is all those that survived. After
a failed attempt at talking Kato into allowing her to return
home with him, Kishimoto goes back to Kurono's house. Returning
to school, Kurono starts to daydream about Kishimoto - getting
an erection in the process much to his embarrassment and the
classes amusement. Meanwhile, Kishimoto is hanging around
a book shop when she spots a beautiful girl called Sei Sakuraoka.
returns home to find his aunt mistreating his younger brother,
Ayuma. After a confrontation Kato and his brother are kicked
out. But Kato was prepared for this and has already found
a flat to rent. Back at Kurono's flat, Kishimoto is still
clueless as to why her and Kurono keep falling out. After
another night of arguing she decides to leave.
I Wanna Be There Now, Kurono regrets arguing with Kishimoto.
Before long everyone is transported back into the Gantz room.
However, this time there is another bunch of strangers awaiting
their fate. Amongst the newcomers is Sakuraoka, the girl that
Kishimoto saw, earlier and a loud mouthed Buddhist priest
who explains to everyone that they are in limbo, waiting to
find out if they will be going to Heaven or Hell. Trying to
stay out of Kishimoto's way, Kurono heads out into the hall.
Sakuraoka follows him and the two start to chat. Kurono brazenly
asks her if she will have sex with him. Although surprised,
she agrees. While they are in the middle of making love Kishimoto
walks in on them.
Will Do It sees the priest convinces the new gamers that
Kato is a demon, but then they are all transported into the
next game. Outside a Buddhist temple, the tracking device
tells them that their prey is inside. Someone asks whether
the two large statues outside the temple are aliens and so
they scan them and discover that they display life signs.
But before anyone one can do anything, they both come to life.
with previous episode titles in this series, the episodes
go under different titles depending whether you follow the

Yashurio Kato; clean opening and closing titles; trailer for

all of the DVDs have been released before you watch the interview
with Hiroya Oku and Chiaki Kuriyama. There is a major plot
development spoilt for those that haven't already read the
