Plot Overview

Volume 2

DA-5 Arc

Krantz debuts commanding his team to victory on an operation in the mountainous range. Then he takes his team to South Korea, on the base of their next mission - to find out about Crombel's work there. He remains on the sidelines as Tao does most of the finding and locating work, Shark and Hammer busy themselves intending to eliminate the children. However, he intervenes the first encounter between Shark and Regis to compel M-21 to come with them.
Krantz interrogates M-21 about Crombel's activities and his mission but gets no appropriate reply. After Shark brings the captured children, he permits Shark to annihilate the witnesses, dismissing M-21's offer of exchanging info. Seeing M-21 fight against Shark and then Regis take over the fight, he decides to step in to put an end to it. Krantz fights against Regis and overpowers him.
After the arrival of Rai, Krantz as well as his team, is subjugated to his superior mind control. Krantz manages to get hold of a D and absorbs it to break free from the control. Krantz then drains the power of Shark as it appears that he cannot defeat Rai in his normal state. He then turns to Tao to absorb him as well. But Ikhan requests Rai to save Tao who, unlike others, has tried to protect them. Krantz is too annoyed at the delay and seizes Tao to absorb him without D. Tao slides and getting free, he binds Krantz with cords and shocks him with electricity. At this, Krantz attacks Tao, however, a sudden command from Rai to halt stupefies him. Later, Krantz is engulfed and annihilated by Rai's Blood Field.
