ALIEN

ENGLISH

チビ星人

人型では最強クラスの戦闘力に加え、テレパシー能力と高い知性を持つ異色の存在である。
身体は小さく体型も子供のようであり、爪や牙もないので一見強そうには見えない。
しかし外見とは裏腹に、ビルの壁を砕くパンチ力とGANTZスーツを着た人間を10m以上も吹っ飛ばす強力なキック力を誇っている。
かなり素早く、全力を出すと人間の目では追いきれず、Xガンでの射撃も易々と回避してしまう。

背中の翼のような部分は見かけ倒しで空は飛べない。
玄野がビルの間を逃げる中で考案した、空中で身動きがとれない瞬間を迎撃する戦法に複数のチビ星人が敗れ去った。
しかしその作戦も早々に見切られ、最終的に玄野はひたすら逃げるしかなかった。

同胞を殺した玄野を仇としてつけ狙う。
昼間の現実世界に、4組の偽中野として姿を現し、玄野のクラスメイト(同胞)を虐殺した。

偽中野に擬態したチビ星人を止めたのは生身の和泉である。
彼の身体能力の異常な高さがうかがえる。
最終的にクラスメイトで生き残ったのは和泉と多恵だけであった。

テレパシーで人間に対し直接メッセージを送ることが可能で、玄野の中にも彼らの思考が流れ込む。
「元々戦いを挑んできたのは玄野であり、正義は自分たちの側にある」との主張を前に玄野は圧倒され困惑する。
それでも、罰ゲームとはいえ「彼女」となった多恵を守るために奮闘する。

奥先生:談

ねぎ星人や田中星人のノリに立ち返って変な星人を出そうと思って、まず語呂とインスピレーションで”チビ星人”という名前に決めました。 “殻で人間に擬態できる”とか”復讐のために玄野の学校にやってくる”という話はそのあとに膨らませているので、名前やデザインとの繋がりはありません。 デザインもその場のラクガキを基に決めたぐらいのノリですね。

SHORT ALIEN(CHIBISEJIN )

The Short Alien has a unique existence, possessing not only the highest level of fighting prowess, but an incredibly high level of intelligence, as well as abilities of telepathy.  The body is short like a child, and it seems relatively harmless . . . that is, when it’s claws and fangs are not exposed.
In contrast to the way he looks, his punches are so strong that they can easily smash through walls on buildings, and his kick could easily propel a human in a GANTZ suit over ten meters away.
He moves so quickly that he is hard for even humans to trace with their eyes, and as such, cannot be stopped by such weapons as the X-gun.

While the Short Aliens have small vestigial wings on their back, they cannot fly.
While running and dodging attacks, moving between buildings, Kurono developed a strategy of attacking the Short Aliens as they’re in midair, as they become incapable of moving.
However, ultimately, the strategy wound up not working as planned, so Kurono wound up just escaping and fleeing.

As Kurono killed members of their group, so, too, would they exact revenge on Kurono.
They appeared as a fake Nakano in the day time of the real world and killed Kurono’s classmates, who they considered to be members of his group.

The one who stopped the short aliens, the Nakano mimis, was actually Izumi — and this was without even wearing one of the GANTZ suits.
This showed his incredible physical ability, and it wound up being only Izumii and Tae that survived among the classmates.

The Short Aliens can convey messages directly to humans using telepathy, and eventually, those thoughts flow directly to Kurono.
It was overwhelming for Kurono to have them say to him, “You KUrono, are the one who brought the fight to us — you were the instigator, not us — and therefore justice is on our side.”
Kurono still struggled to protect Tae, who became his girlfriend (even of them “seeing each other” was just a punishment and the result of losing a bet with friends.

--- Oku-sensei’s comment:

I was trying to keep up with the quirky fun aliens like the Onion Aliens and the Tanaka Aliens, so I decided to name these guys the Short Aliens (Chibi Seijin), due to what inspired me and what sounded funny, wording-wise.
The story lines of them mimicking humans, and with them attacking Kurono’s school, had nothing to do with their initial design or naming, and were separate unto themselves.
I just started scribbling and drawing stuff randomly, and that’s how I came up with the design.
