At least they were nice enough to put together the crooked cop's tongue, teeth, and face. That's a funny way to get a hair cut though.

Ah...damn...I did not consider the option of backstabbing. The keys are the steps according to Gen. So since Gen has become the favorite character, it is safe to assume his information is correct. The key is that somehow he knows the activation was AFTER the sound of the glass breaking. How he knows this doesn't make sense. But maybe there is some sort of sound that will go along with the activation of a medusa (in the anime).

I wonder if Chrome actually knows how big the moon is or if his diversion was just ignorant luck.

I really don't like Gen having a shadowy face with Ukyou overseeing Kaseki taking out the battery. Ukyou's ears should 100% guarantee he knows that someone and possibly that it is even Gen, standing there.

Considering character designs are consistent, unless the manga team is introducing someone new, it looks like the former chief (Kohaku/Ruri's father) is in charge of monitoring the medusa. The female definitely looks new. And the crooked cop is right in his normal role.

Interesting potential foreshadowing. "Dragon TV", mass communication, "Lee Team" vs. "Xeno Team".

Ohhhh...never mind. The former chief has longer hair. We have new characters responsible for watching the medusa.

But damn, I'm not liking the newest and fastest pacing of the manga. Things look like they are going to be over in about a year. Unless why-man is not the end of the series. Hopefully this is the case since things are going way too fast for my liking.

Senku must be confident that the spaceship is going to be done soon. Having a surveillance satellite is asking why-man to prepare for battle/counter attack. I have questions as to how Senku will get it to orbit the moon, but I guess the norm is how spaceships move (with air bursts).

The main question is who and why the attack occurred though. The biggest thing that comes to mind is why-man. Especially with the confirmation that medusas will break over time, the one given to the old-creep on Treasure Island cannot be from when Matsukaze got petrified (or much less likely). This would be a second case of why-man having communication with the earth. Since he has all the modern technology, this makes sense.

The patterns of the manga team are not established (they never foreshadowed anything really), so how the Gen stuff plays out will be our first and possibly only insight into their writing style/pattern. Since I like Gen, I don't want it to be him, but his reactions in two key panels don't have great implications.
