When did this happen?
When Animerica stopped putting magazines on shelves.
When I came in bags
don't worry, he'll get revived, you Gantz love him or loves messing with him
gantz is tsundere
A while ago.
Reika will revive him, they'll have butt secks, end of manga.
Fucking author killed the Master Psychic and the Old Man in the latest chapter. It's like he's actively TRYING to piss everyone off now.
The first time you die should be the most important.
But if anime and manga has taught me anything...
It is the second time you die that is the most important.
kurono looks moe
no one dies in bleach
MUST COLLECT BALLS OF DRAGON!!
don't worry, hopefully Reika has some "Kurono" skills
Old Man isn't dead yet.
wait the aliens are ridiculously harder nowadays right? so if by some magical chance that gantz team survive and kill the aliens without Osaka hogging up the points, they should have enough points to bring back Kurono.
Yes. But Kurono isn't gonna come back as a Gantz team member. He died as a normal human. Just like Kojima.
wasn't kurono deleted from gantz's databanks after he became free? he died a normal human.
what would be awesome is if the old Kurono from Gantz memory came back somehow. The one that dies from the train in the beginning. I think that's logical since Kurono actually died outside Gantz.
The aliens don't really seem to scale in difficulty, this mission's just special, hence the deployment of two teams. The ring aliens were the easiest batch yet, and the Buddha aliens are still among the most hax that they've dealt with.
yeah, however that is why anon said the second time you die. so revive kei, he dies again, he goes back to gantz team
I think the first copy from chapter 1 is still there.
Kurono was able to bring his girlfriend back, even though her only participation in the game was as a target.
That was only because they had no teamwork at all. Kurono was showing off while Katou and friends were in awe.
I don't think he got deleted from the data bank
Point taken, but the "final boss" was just plain ridiculously unfair.
Remember, Kurono is good enough to survive without a suit and still get the most points
wait, now that I think about it, did the thousand arms even die?
>Master Psychic and the Old Man
Well they are not dead yet but will probably will.
Yeah, Katou killed the fucker as he died.
Oh man I totally forgot about Izumi. Who the hell is going to bring him back? Nishi? Fuck no. Unless somehow Izumi's girlfriend ends up in Gantz, I see no chance.
It's theorized that you earn double the points if you aren't wearing a suit, but he does still seem to do a lot more than the others when he isn't wearing one.
Yeah, Kato killed it. Of course, with its dying breath it managed to impale him with its tail because he dropped his guard.
Shit manga, i thought we already said all there was to be said in that other thread.
I dunno if its safe to rule out Nishi so early. We don't really know Nishi's true 100 point intentions. He's said "be free", but he has that dead body fetish, so would he really go for it? Or would he revive Izumi? I dunno, but I'd like to see Izumi come back, just because he has some serious business with Kurono. But of course vampires will just fuck up that rivalry.
Do you mean that thread with that guy who was liek "Seriously, Nishi is the key to Gantz" and shit?
Still the best.
vampires fuck everything up
So good that someone who looks EXACTLY like him pops up every time new players are brought in.
best part of the manga.
FUCK YEAH! They resurrected Golgo-13!
Aw... wait, it's only Nishi.
Wasn't he a playable character on the ps2 game or some shit?
I'm kinda ticked off that they're wasting these characters' potentials. Instead of being awesome foils for the Gantz team, they just sorta wander around complaining while maintaining as much competence in their evil plans as Pinky and the Brain.
But then again, there hasn't been a single part of Phase 2 that I've actually liked so far, other than GAR TODDLER.
Indeed. Katou's so damn uninteresting. All he's got is his brother as plot-fodder. The little brother has to be killed before his eyes, and thus finally pushing Katou into the Kurono/Izumi awesome range.
Yeah, the whole point to Kato was that he was an idealistic foil to Kurono, who was very accepting of the nature of the game and was willing to fight like Nishi if it meant his own survival. Kato's death was the best thing to ever happen to Kurono as far as his development went, but Kato just doesn't work on his own at all. I don't care how many ridiculously hedonistic strawmen you put him with or how much you make the old characters act like complete dicks for no reason to get that spark back.
Wait. Actually, I DO care! THE OLD MAN WOULD NOT FUCKING TURN HIS BACK ON INNOCENT PEOPLE, YOU LIMP-DICKED ASSHOLE! REIKA WOULD NOT JUST GO SHOPPING DURING AN ALIEN INVASION! WHAT THE FUCK!?
issue 200 if i remember correctly.
I try not to take it seriously, but there's very little to Gantz other than watching cannon fodder line up to get killed. But what the series is, or was, very good at was making the characters extremely fleshed-out and likable despite the fact that the reader knew that they could die in any way on any page. So of course I'm going to be pissed off when he cocks the whole thing up.
I agree. Introducing new characters that aren't so generic is really refreshing. Seeing them die is even more entertaining. But now theres regulars. So we'll have to deal with the vampires and Katou to carry Gantz for a while.
this manga is going all over the place. first a machine that makes dead people play a game. then vampires? and now there's some big ass monster that nobody seems to be able to beat. and i'm not even sure of what the hell i saw at the end of the last issue. but...i can't stop reading it.
I think Nishi should get a few chapter dedicated to him. I don't think Reika, the physics and the Old Man can keep Gantz interesting until Kurono makes his return. I'd love to see Nishi become the character he supposedly is.
You have to remember, though. He got punked out and killed by one of the weakest aliens they've ever met because, as it turns out, he really isn't that special.
Yea, but hes back. He can't just be back because Kurono would go into emo mode after seeing Kishimoto, hes not back because his knowledge. Kurono knows better than anyone that Nishi wouldn't say shit no matter what.
And you have to realize that Nishi's return is probably just Kurono being a nice guy. But if thats the case, he would obviously bring back someone who he actually cared for.
Instead, he brought back the guy with a lot of experience and a lot of knowledge. Kurono felt comfortable leaving Nishi with his Gantz team. Thats why i think Nishi will play a major part.
