I like the relationship between Kurono and Kojima. It is one of the few natural things that is actually happening in this series. The love triangle makes me sad, but knowing how sweet Kojima is, I know she can forgive. I certainly like the break from the action, and it is nice to see Kurono is maturing.
Also, of course Gantz would choose Kojimia as the target! I knew Kurono had too many points and there needed to be a way to bring him right back down to zero again. There is a solidified group now, and instead of everyone fighting for themselves, some of them are banding together. Some of the ways people have died to reach Gantz are disheartening. The world is a cruel place.
