Fuck Nishi. He's even more of a pussy than Kato. Izumi was as much an asshole as him, but at least he had some balls.

What bothers me is that while Kurono was there, and I don't mean right with them but just in the team, the Tokyo group worked awesomely. Hell, they got ONE death against the Oni for fucks' sake. Reika moped the shit out of twenty-something aliens on her own. And now Kurono is gone (After the assured him they could handle it) and they suddenly forget how to do anything.
>>
>>10087766
Actually, she hasn't been mentioned for a while. Katou hasn't even brought her up during his emo thoughts. Kurono was thinking of reviving her, but decided to revive Nishi instead.

Nishi is a fucking pussy, but he makes the manga more interesting. Now with Kurono gone we get to see if the regulars can handle this shit. Of course they forgot to fight. They don't have Kurono, and LOL Kato is too fucking stupid. But at least their not making this a manga where the main character does everything. Look hes dead, and probably won't be revived for another 4-5 volumes.

Nishi, Kato, Sakurai, Fighting guy and Reika will keep this shit seriously interesting. Not to mention the Osaka crew is fucking GAR.
>>
>>10087797
To be fair, shit had happened.

1 - Kurouno dies in front of them.
2 - They are sent to Osaka instead of somewhere in Tokyo.
3 - They meet another group of people like them.
4 - A shitload of monsters, a lot more of them than usual.

Has Inaba done anything somewhat useful or at least died already? He was the only dead weight on the team. Even Old Man pulled his own weight.

>>10087863
in the current the original gantz team faces against the big boss enemy who seems to be able to attack without physically attacking. the old man lost both arms and is being carried away to safety by reika while inaba lost his arm and leg as he tried to run away. the rest of the group is running away while cherry's mentor [totally forgot his name] seems to be holding the enemy back with his mental powers.

They're getting their asses kicked big time though. All of them. I was actually looking forward to reika taking the lead since she really seemed like she could become a competent leader, but all they've done so far is gawk at the Osaka guys, get split and loose some limbs. And unless Kato fades back into the background soon, they're gonna stay like they are.

To be honest, the only Tokyo member who has done anything interesting lately is Takeshi. TAKESHI for fucks sake.

Fuck him. The guy never had one line in the whole fucking manga. And in the anime he spoke engrish. So fuck him.

The sniper guy would have been cool, but I would like to see Izumi be brought back. He was fucking cool even though he was a nigger.
>>
>>10088013
You insinuate that if they were good they shouldn't have been killed by Million Arms, when pretty much everybody was killed by it.
>>
The guy on the Osaka team who was fucking an alien is fucking badass. If he were on the Tokyo team, Gantz would be a 10/10 manga, even without Kurono.
>>
Homo's only redeeming feature was not being a total dumbass, but he was about as effective as Tits. Old Man should be the bottom of the barrel for acceptable performance right now.
>>
>>10088079
All they had to do was work together. Seriously, how come when they split up the Tomb Raider chick, big tits, Kurono and Kato were on a team. Then the other team had homo, stalker, 2 jewish guys that suck dick, and the Karate guy.

Seriously, Kato and Kurono should have been on opposite teams. Who the fuck thought that shit up anyway?
>>
>>10088090
If Gantz just focused on the Osaka team from the beginning it would have been a 10/10 manga. Maybe put it through the mother's point of view just so the reader can relate.
>>
No matter what, I don't want Old Man to die. The old fart rode a motorcycle in a road chase from a fireball throwing T-Rex and then grabbed it by the tail. Old Man needs to remember he's got a pair and so shit again.
>>
>>10088121
YES.

Old Man is by far one of my favorite on the Tokyo team right now. Just because of how he suddenly was Kurono's best friend. If Old Man dies I don't think the team will be as together as they are right now(well... kinda right now).
>>
>>10088137
Fuck no Kuruno is too awesome for that.
>>
>>10088117
What would have been the point? If Kurono and Kato together only won by sacrificing everyone else and having only one almost-didn't-make-it survivor, splitting the strength would have been worse.
>>
>>10088137
The Osaka guys so far have had only a couple generic "Tough guys" and a bunch of retard junkies. At least some of them might eventually develop, but right now they aren't much to speak of.
>>
>>10088121
Agreed. Currently the best on the team along with Sakata and Sakurai. Maybe Reika if she wasn't failing it right now.
>>
>>10088153
No. Lets say that Kato with went Homo and Stalker into the hut. Kato and Homo would have been able to judge wisely and retreat with no lives lost. Instead, everyone died on that mission because of the miscommunication between teams. Plus if Kato wasn't such an idiot about the acid, tits would still have been alive, Kurono would have never been injured, and Tomb Raider would have never died.

>>10088193
Muscle Rider wouldn't be too bad either. If only he didn't have to spend so much time helping out the faggot ass kid.

Exactly. I dunno who made the teams, but whatever character did is probably dead. I'm too lazy to look back that far, so I guess i can only imagine it was idiot Kato.
>>
>>10088211
I still don't think they woul have fared much better as a group. One of the reasons Kato could go melee was "Lara" busting the beam for example, and she only got to realize that by seeing it cut up the cannon fodder members. Besides, the acid was a surprise attack, and it was better for them that it was wasted on Tits than on someone more useful.
>>
>>10088222
You do not fucking insult Takeshi. He's kicked more ass in this hunt that the rest of the team combined.
>>
Seeing how well Lara did in CQC against Million Arms makes me think that the karate guy could have probably fucked its shit up if he didn't get his neck stretched out by one of the weaker Buddhas.
>>
>>10088295
Which makes you realize how much the team sucks right now. He's getting to appear like one awesome kid right now, I can tell you that.

Yes he does. All he does is bitch. I didn't even know who the fuck he was when he wasn't wearing his hat, then i remembered he was the worthless piece of shit that is jealous of Kurono. He should die, but he will probably dodge death for at least a few more missions.

originally died? i think it was assumed she died along with the rest of that team roster when izumi shot up downtown.

>>
>>10088494
she probably didn't get a scene so that it'd be a surprise she was a part of the team in the room. besides didn't she have a hat? she may have been trying to dress casual/incognito so not to be recognized.
>>
>>10088494
She might not have been in the Izumi massacre. Maybe she committed suicide. Then when she went into the dinosaur mission she fell in love with Kurono so she decided to live again.

Kurono needs to come back. He's reminds me a lot of Kaiji, he's a loser everyone can relate to until thrown into a life threatening situation - then his ultimate survivor skills kick in and he goes berserk.

It escaped from the zoo and got shot by Izumi. Or maybe they had a panda in the middle of the city when Izumi was around.

>>10088594
After Kurono comes back it will probably end with Kato, Kishimoto, and some other regulars buying their freedom. Then Kurono and Nishi die together while taking on a 100 pointer or something. I don't see Kurono ever going back to normal life, the manga can't really afford to lose the best character for too long. I see Nishi dying again, or maybe he goes through development and lives his life after buying his freedom.

What I wanna know is, why did it take a year or so for Nishi to get 90 points? Kurono had 100 points in like 5 missions.

I don’t blame you for missing it. He knew Kurono was the vampires’ target and called him to warn him. Then during the fight there’s like one panel where the blonde shows Kurono his brother’s severed head.
>>
>>10088656
How so? I think the vampires are pretty good imo. Gantz can't just be the same shit over and over. GO KILL THESE GUYS, HERES YOUR POINTS, GO LIVE A NICE LIFE FOR A WHILE UNTIL I CALL YOU BACK.

Seriously, they needed a change of pace. The only thing i don't like about the vampires is how theres so fucking many of them. Izumi went through like over 500 of those fuckers.

>>10088709
The buildup was all hype and then the way he actually handled it was piss poor at best.Its like a trademark for hiroya mangas.

That was the worst shit ever. It looked like Light from Death Note. Fucking bull shit. Seriously, these vampires went and killed his brother that no one ever heard of?

Yup

Check out all of his other work, it really stands out, its pretty bad.

He had some build up. Even a whole chapter just to himself. It's just that it was looking like he'd fight Kurono (Since they didn't like each other) and it ended in him pussying out and getting beheaded.

The vampires are pretty cool for consistent enemies, but its not like they are organized at all. They just suddenly appear, kill the niggers, then try to kill the immortal bald guy and leave. Then they try to take out Izumi wich was impossible. Now 2 of them have joined the gantz team? I don't know if i like it too much, but with Nishi back in it i'm still in love with this manga.

He's only been gone for a few volumes. If he was in the current mission what would he accomplish? He would run around mercilessly killing aliens and Kato would throw a hissy fit. Then Kurono would get his ass kicked by the Osaka team for being cooler than them. I do want Kurono back so I can see some Nishi vs Kurono bitch fights.

What the fuck happened to the dog? Did Gantz just let him go for the lulz?

is he dead? i havent read this shitty manga in years
>>
>>10088908
He's dead. But he will probably make an appearance because Nishi is obsessed with him.
>>
>>10088799
Oku tends to get bored of shit FAST and just dial in everything. Unfortunately, gantz is actually making him hecka cash so he can't just drop it. Compare the writing in the first couple of volumes to last several years. The only thing has gotten better is the art. Although this is more of "I can't be bothered to actually develop the conflict between Kurono and Izumi, let's just have Izumi HAVE A SAMURAI DUEL WITH A VAMPIRE FUCK YEAH"
>>
The vampires were over hyped to fuck. Like when they first showed up they gunned down half the Gantz survivors and were know as the '4 generals' or some shit. Then they all turned out to be giant faggots who sucked at fighting. Massive letdown.
>>
>>10088926
Not to mention that he has yet to even reveal ANYTHING at all about the truth and motives behind Gantz and the aliens.
>>
>>10088926
Pretty much

ever read Hen? that one goes down the drain pretty quickly.
>>
>>10088945
haha yeah its funny how the manga has gone on 23 volumes+ and not a line about the purpose of Gantz/Aliens.
>>
Shit, so what if its a long manga? Longer the better for Gantz. The vampires are just a phase, I don't see Gantz ending with vampires being the main antagonists. I see the Gantz team teaming up with the vampires to take GANTZ down. Yes Gantz itself, I think Gantz is a huge thing the is all over the world. And it will soon expand once Nishi gets the stick out of his ass.
>>
>>10088943
They really haven't done anything important outside of saying they're a variant of alien? I just know that it was AND SUDDENLY, VAMPIRES, and they've been pretty much shit outside of fighting those two aliens in a sword duel.

>>10089029
Kurono and Izumi vs that big fucking Vampire was such an epic battle. The vampires are good as long as its one of the ones who stands there and talks calmly about shit.
>>
The only things we really know is that there are more balls, a HEUG one in germany, and that the teams are supposed to be preparing for something big.
>>
I thought the 'lol vampires are important' came from the fact that they existed out the special zone Gantz set up. Like that 1 alien that Kuruno failed to kill so it somehow ended up in the real world to fuck his school up.
>>
>>10089034
It's already known that there are other Gantz teams around the world.

>>10089078
The one they double-teamed was the Ultimate Oni.
>>
>>10088900
Great? More like the writer had ONE good idea, rode it along for as long as it would take him and then gave up trying when it ran out of gas. Hence why it was awesome in the begining. Then after the one good idea ran its course and with no direction left to go in all that could be done was to make up new(shitty) ideas as it went along.

Remember back when it seemed that Gantz was doing everything just to fuck with people? Those were good times. Notice how, in the more recent chapters, several panels are used to depict only one lame action and absolutely no text? Or how there will be a whole page or two page spread for something that really didn't deserve it? They're just dragging it along now. I need to read 3 volumes at once just to feel like I read 1.
>>
One thing that's messed up is the pacing. When there's 3 splash pages of basically the same fucking shot, there's something wrong.
>>
>>10089086
Even from the beginning Gantz was pretty short and fast to read through.

The haters of Gantz were once fans of Gantz. Because anyone who reads Gantz is automatically a huge fan. But once Kurono chose #1 the fans started losing hope, then when he died they said "fuck Gantz". But really, if you all would take a good look at the supporting characters(eg. Kaze, Cherry, Cherry's sensei, Old Man and Reika) Then if you factor in Kato's return, you would realize Gantz has a lot of strength left in it.

Actually i thought Gantz would be pretty shit as soon as i found out more about the mangaka.

He's horrible.
>>
>>10089247
Have you even read what people said in this thread? First, no one likes Kato. Second, we know how good the Tokyo team can be, the problem is that they are the ones who forgot.

People only dislike Kato because he hes sensitive. That doesn't mean hes not an interesting character. He fucking beat million arms. HE FUCKING BEAT THE GUY KURONO COULDN'T BEAT. And I know all you fuckers are gonna say shit like "Well, tomb raider chick did blah blah so that Kato could win. Kato fucking kicked his ass. He went all out and had a fucking epic death. Then suddenly hes back and nobody gives a shit. Also, i forgot to mention the best character in Gantz, Nishi, hes fucking cool no matter what you say. So what if he abuses stealth and doesn't use teamwork. He's the guy thats responsible for Kato not being such a pussy anymore, and hes responsible for Kurono lasting as long as he did.

Now Nishi is gonna be a clutch player in this series as I don't see him dying again.

You can't just look at "oh ew vampires suck n shit" or "The coolest character is dead, fuck this shit."
>>
hehe

gotta love how every single main and supporting character looks like a japanese pop idol
>>
>>10089247
What? Shit was going downhill for a long time before Kurono died. His death was really just the final nail in the coffin. I remember there was some speculation that Cherry would take over as the main character, which got me excited for a while, but even if he did the manga is just too poorly paced to keep me intrigued.

Kato was a shit character and I was overjoyed when he died. Same goes for Nishi. The reviving is such a lame plot twist.
>>
>>10089458
Lame or not, the reviving was planned from the start with the points.
>>
>>10089473

lol, no. nothing was planned past the first few volumes.
>>
>>10089400
Kato sucked because he had no fucking backbone. He was "nice", but in the wishy-washy kind of way. He still tried using the fucking Y-Gun for shit's sake. He was a mediocre fighter, he could only lead the ones scared and had shit skills as a leader other than trying to keep everyone on good terms, which he couldn't do anyway. He gives orders swiftly which makes him look confident, but they aren't by any means good ones. See his attepts at getting people to survive and compare them with Kurono's. And yes, he beat the Thousand Arms because every other fucking member in the team had already crippled it at the expense of their lives, it wasn't even that big a threat by the time he got to it, it was just that he was the only one still alive.
>>
>>10089458
So you're saying the manga is better off having Kurono going fucking ballistic because Kojima is dead? Next time he was summoned by Gantz he would have fucking killed everyone who fucked him over. Izumi, Ibana, and all the other faggots.

Kurono kills everyone taking revenge for Kojima, then since hes still fucking crazy, he starts getting obsessed with Gantz and ditches the teamwork idea. Then he dies a pitiful death, just like Nishi. Very nice.

The reviving was obvious ever since the Buddha mission. Seriously, Kurono being the only one alive? Haha, bull shit. There had to be a dragonball type thing in there somewhere.
>>
>>10089616
>manga is better off
Nothing can make the manga better know, shit started going down, and down, after the first few volumes and there is still no end in sight.

btw this manga has some of the worst pacing i have ever seen.
>>
>>10089561
Without Kato Kurono becomes a Nishi sooner than the above post. He becomes a Nishi and doesn't give a shit. Then he dies a pitiful death even earlier. Gantz manga never even gets published if Kato isnt around.
>>
It's called development. Kurono wouldn't get any if Katou was never introduced, or if he was killed in the first mission. He just doesn't. Katou may be hated, but hes the reason that Gantz got good in the first place.
>>
Why is Kurono pulling a Karate Kid? I don't remember this from the manga.
>>
>>10089666
Yes, Kato had his role in waking up Kurono from his emo'ing and reminding him that he used to be fucking badass as a kid. Emphasis on HAD. That was his only fucking role, being a trigger for Kei. Notice how the early chapters weren't about how Katou (failed to) lead, but about Kurono.

Not that Kurono is dead, we're back with a character who's only purpose was playing second banana to another that isn't there. And worst, he's getting more focus than ever before.
>>
>>10089666
>>10089722
It's called necessary evil. That Kato served one purpose in the early stages doesn't matter now that said purpose is long over and we're stuck staring at his useless ass.
>>
>>10089744
It was when he fought that bully with his suit on underneath his clothes.
>>
Nishi+ Immortal Oldman+ Muscle rider+ The ambiguously psychic gay duo + Supermodel + Muscle rider Junior etc.

The cast is surprisingly diverse. I honestly wanted the american black guys to have survived.

ESP MOTHERFUCKING ESP. lols.
>>
>>10089809
>Supermodel
Every single character in this manga is a super model

all japanese people look like super models.

Gotta love Hiroya Oku
>>
>>10089809
The problem is that they are not getting the focus. Kato and the Osaka team are.
>>
>>10089809
Those guys were hilarious. But it was obvious they would be killed off in order to get a new crew in.

One thing i hate about Gantz now is that the new Gantz hunters get little to no face. I mean, ever since the first team with Izumi, the new guys have been barely even shown. I mean, I really don't remember any of the new people in the Horse/Kojima hunt and the Oni hunt. Not to mention none of them survived.

The first couple of missions had all the newcomers have different personalities and different ways of thinking. Now they are just generic fillers.
>>

I don't even know how to begin responding to this and I have no idea what point you are trying to make. It seems you are trying to say that Kurono is better off dead, but if you actually read my posts you'll notice that I mention several things that are wrong with Gantz that have nothing to do with Kurono being dead.

>The reviving was obvious ever since the Buddha mission. Seriously, Kurono being the only one alive? Haha, bull shit. There had to be a dragonball type thing in there somewhere.

I don't see how it being obvious that there would be revivals makes it any less lame. Especially when they use it to revive all the lame characters. The best fucking part about the Buddha mission was that everyone that was shitty and useless died.
>>

At this point, Kurono is better off dead. It's time for Kato to get his development, along with maybe some Nishi development. And that cannot be done when you have Kurono taking up 15 pages per chapter.

>I don't see how it being obvious that there would be revivals makes it any less lame. Especially when they use it to revive all the lame characters. The best fucking part about the Buddha mission was that everyone that was shitty and useless died.

I think its good and refreshing to have old characters come back. Especially when they were MAJOR CHARACTERS. Nishi and Katou still had plenty to do in this series. Katou has to free himself so he can go back to his brother. Nishi has to be a man and work with the Gantz team.

I honestly don't care about the rest. I'd like to see more come back(Homo and Stalker) but i don't see that happening since the Gantz team has plenty of notable characters.
As for your true reasons why you think Gantz is shit, slow paced? Thats fine, stuff like that doesn't really phase me since i've been following this manga for quite a while now and am a loyal fan until the end.

Vampires? Seriously, Gantz was getting dull. After the mission with the dinosaurs there could have been 2 routes. A Kurono and Izumi rivalry, or introduce a new evil. I would have been happy with either. Although i think they needed to explain Izumi's existence a little better. I think Izumi will be revived soon.
>>
i like the vampires. Sure, they are a little overhyped. I'd actually love to see more oni's.
>>
>>10089879
The cannon fodder newbies was a predictable result of increasing the number of regulars. More people surviving meant they would hof the screentime. I didn't think it was that bad at first, as I didn't mind having a score of useless dorks so long as there was a considerable number of people with real character.

The problem is now where the near-faceless Osaka team is hogging most of the spotlight along with the now-useless Kato and the guys who DID have a point are getting whooped in the sidelines.

When watching Nishi's death you can't honestly think "shit, hes dead, hes never gonna be shown again". Seriously, if you did then theres something wrong with you.
>>
>>10090154
No, I was thinking "Haha, suck that you faggot".
>>
>>10090170
Seconded. I was focused on laughing at his miserable death calling for his mother and the fact he was so close to getting a 100 points. Then he was forgotten.
>>
Nishi is the average Anon. If Anon were in that situation we would do the same thing Nishi did.
>>
a Gantz thread with actual discussion? I'm surprised /a/
>>
>>10090204
I'm going to have to agree with this. There are no Kuronos posting on /a/ I'm afraid.
>>
>>10090154
Not really no, i just thought of it as a useless character getting what he deserved and how much this manga sucked.
>>
The satisfaction of seeing Nishi get killed was second only to seeing the monk guy gets stomped.
>>
Am I the only one who likes Katou?
>>
>>10090291
Yes.
>>
>>10090291
I do as well. His character balances out Kurono. Gantz feeds off Katou and Kurono, or Kurono with his memories of Katou.
>>
lol we need moar of reika's huge tits
>>
>>10090215
It's surprising isn't it? It's probably because all of the shounen fags are at anime parties. It is a friday after all. And we all know Anon's don't do anything on fridays.
>>
>>10090291
I like Katou but I can't talk about it on /a/ without getting buttraped

Not when those characters are shit. They are the ones who are truely better off dead. Gantz had enough decent characters to give more screen time to, in lieu of Kurono, without having to revive anyone. (HINT CHERRY HINT)
>>
>>10090379

Cherry is Kurono JR.

How fucking dare you? If Cherry would get the stick out of his ass and stop bitching about his sensei, then maybe he can pull a Kurono and fuck shit up.
>>
>>10090379
He's going to replace his teacher and surpass him with his powers.

What the fuck is up with all these hater? Seriously, the pacing is only slow in certain chapters. Look at the chapters centered around Cherry. Those are fucking amazing chapters. You all just like to pick out the few bad points and exploit it. Even though its nothing big.

Seriously, the vampires? They won't last very long. If Izumi can take out 1000 of those guys then I'm pretty damn sure the vampires are weak as fuck.
>>
>>10090379
Since Sakata was obviously going to die soon, Cherry needed to be there to cover his spot.
>>
i kind of like gantz for being random and poorly thought out. vampires get hyped to fuck, izumi kills all of them including the hyped up generals. main character dies and stays dead for probably about a hundred chapters.

the coolest part was the shooting spree and izumi vs. kurono. i wish there had been more of that but then oh vampires lol.
>>
One thing i've never figured out is how Nishi survived long enough to not do anything and yet get 90 points. In the Osaka mission he just lost his Arm if i remember correctly. And he died in hos second mission with Kurono and gang. How the hell did he last that long? Does he have hidden potential?

Sure, pick out the chapters that involve fights with nothing but fighting. Yeah, that might be slow paced. But look at the development chapters. Shit, you guys never get tired of contradiction.

Yes, I often like to read slow paced fighting inbetween volumes where shitty characters do nothing but suck.
