Nice turnout of responses!
Hopefully izumi will follow kurono's path to having more regard for lives, even if they belong to strangers. As it is, now, he doesn't seem to care for anyone or anything other than the hunt.
I think the first martial artist would be a good choice because he defeated many with his bare hands. In a suit, he and muscle rider would make a nice combo!
Kurono has tae, reika is nice and has shown great capability, but sei really captured my interest in her ability to quickly adapt and take on the multi-armed boss. And yes, she's quite attractive. Actually, many of the Gantz women are, but sei takes the cake in my personal preferences. Save for the spur of the moment tryst with kurono in the apartment. If it wasn't for that stupid laser lantern! I was really pissed when she died. She didn't appear to be underaged, to me. In the anime she refers to hearself as onee-san, older than kurono who is 17.
Fighters, chicks then everyone else sounds like a good plan, to me. However, I would be *very* hesitant about bringing anyone back to life who displayed a very evil/wicked disposition. Maybe for them I'd bring them back once and observe them. If they keep the same attitude and end up dying again, I certainly wouldn't give much thought to giving them yet another chance. Whereas if a good comrade died again, I'd certainly want to bring them back again and again. And yes, I think sadako and the "homo" guy should be given a chance to be together.
And I make the above selection based on who has already been ressurected as of ch230.
Since only those in GANTZ's memory can be erased, that eliminates the option for anyone else.
Yes, it is off topic so I'll keep my response succinct. I believe the lag exists so you can lock on multiple targets.
Now getting more than one powerful weapon--I wondered about that, too. However it could be argued that having an intelligent, effective additional teammate would be just as, if not more, effective than having two additional powerful weapons. What exactly these weapons are remains unknown, though. So such arguments remain frivolous, for now.
Yes, the trauma experienced by war vets is very real. Some are more apt at dealing with the stress than others. I have not had to truly experience such situtations, so I speak on how I feel how I would act is such a situation--how I would *want* to act. Note, however, that when it comes to protecting friends and loved ones, there are people who will make many sacrifices--if necessary, dying to save them. Not only that, but living for them; living to help them. Whether or not I'd be able to cope with the mental stress in GANTZ's world...that I may never know and I'm not particularly eager to know. I wouldn't want to become like izumi or nishi, that's for sure. That is, wholly selfish.
In coping with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) it has been shown that a point can be reached when a person can readily cope and detraction from their quality of life is reduced. To what extent they recover? I'd need to research that, more thoroughly. The impact of trauma is undeniable, however.
The vampires have shown themselves to be merciless murderers even preying on little girls for food. I'd rather kill myself than be like that. They do it with pleasure and devoid of remorse. Their destruction is necessary.
