菊池 誠一

フリーライターK

新宿に拠点を構えるフリーランスのライターで、黒い球の部屋の謎を追いかける、いわばミステリーハンター。

玄野の言葉を借りれば「怪しい雑誌とかにUFOとか宇宙人とか下らないことバッカ書いてるダメな大人」とも言える。

がしかし、
ガンツ部屋の転送メンバーでないにも関わらず、実は最もガンツの謎や、更には「神」なるものの存在にまで近づいた人物ともいえ、その直感力と取材力からはジャーナリストとしての能力値の高さが伺える。

「:X」スタッフメモ

おしゃれな短髪とクールな流し目に眼鏡、時々見せるドヤ顔が印象的。
どことなく奥先生ご自身に似ているような気も…?

SEIICHI KIKUCHI

Freelance Writer

Kikuchi is what you’d call a mystery hunter: originally a writer based in Shinjuku and pursuing mysteries of the room containing the black sphere.

To borrow what Kurono said about him, some might see him as a “Pathetic man writing about many shitty, stupid things like UFOs and aliens and stuff in trashy magazines.”

However, despite the fact that he’s not one of the teleported members of the GANTZ room, it’s safe to see that he’s actually gotten the closest to the mystery of GANTZ, and you could also say, the closest of the cast to achieve a “godlike existence.”
He’s built to be a journalist at his core, given his superior sense of intuition and ability to assimilate and use data.

「:X」Staff Notes

Kikuchi’s a guy sporting cool-looking short hair, glances, and has the habit of glancing sideways smoothly at people.
He’s impressive when sometimes showing his smug side, and his intentionally-forced triumphant expressions in a funny.
Maybe he looks a little bit like GANTZ creator Oku?
