The end of Cherry, and Kurono #1 tries to reunite with Tae (again).
For Kurono #1, Tae is like a carrot on a string that he can never quite get to.
Sakurai's mech gets destroyed by the alien giant cannon. Sakurai wakes up in a badly damaged building and realizes he has teleported, but unfortunately his limbs are all missing. Sakurai then sees two alien children mourning their dead mother just as the ceiling is about to collapse on them. Near death, Sakurai sees visions of Sakata and Tonkotsu who tells Sakurai to come with them. With one last psychic effort, Sakurai saves the alien kids from being crushed by debris and Sakurai dies.
Meanwhile, Kurono #1 and the other mech pilots realize that their mechs are not on auto pilot anymore (since the hacker masterminds got bombed by the aliens). Kurono ditches the super-suit and flies out of the mech with the Gantz flying bike. Tae and Fra spot Kurono and Fra tells her flying car to get closer to Kurono, but the car is hit by a blast from an alien mech.
So Cherry is dead. Booooooo. He probably should die, but I wanted him to die a blaze of glory, maybe taking out the alien energy weapon with his last ounce of hate and then maybe do something redemptive. Crazy Cherry deserved to die with more than just a whimper. Anyways, Cherry is gone, and so are the assholes that took over the Gantz network which paves the way for Kurono #1 to once again try to reunite with Tae. Just like at earlier points of the story line, Kurono looks like he has a chance to get to Tae but runs into trouble once again as Fra's car is hit by an alien mech. Will this lead to Tae's demise and Kurono snapping and going Rambo? At this point, that's a better scenario than having Kurono chase Tae around all over again.
