    Default Gantz Volume 7 What are the Statues saying?

    In Volume 7 The Gantz team encounters the Temple Statues and some of them are saying strange things.

    Sometimes it sounds like english but im not sure.
    And 1000-Hands sounds like spanish.

    I guess some aliens arn't evil (especially the statues, i think some of them are asking why the gantzers are attacking) and to know some of the backgrounds about the alien invasion it would be good to know what they are saying.

    Does anyone know what they are saying?

    The only aliens that have attacked without apparent provocation are the Ring Aliens. The current crop is debatable, but with the big guy gibbering about its land I'm going to hold off on judgement there.

    Some have been more aggressive than others (the oni aliens), and some have been quicker or slower to anger, but "the Gantz team hits first" is the general rule here.

    I had a japanese roommate and I showed him some of the manga, he said they're just saying nonsense, maybe some kind of ancient bhuddist stuff or something.

    One of the scans I have said that what the statues said was nonsense. Like it was just a chant or something, no real meaning in what they said.

    Nah, it's not nonsense, you just gotta know how to read it. Let me see if I can give a good translation:

    Chapter 75, using Shocwave's page numbering. Right to left, top to bottom.

    78:

    -Who the hell are these guys, and why are they wearing such ridiculous outfits?

    -It's your turn to cook dinner tonight.

    -I wonder what's on television?

    -Establish the dictatorship of the proletariat, the dictatorship of the proletariat…

    -I knew I should have brought my knitting.

    -Maybe these guys can tell me if there's anything good on.

    79:

    -Do you support the workers' ownership of the means of production?

    80:

    -Do you support the workers' ownership of the means of production, or are you a capitalist pig-dog?

    83:

    -The means of production… the means of production… heh heh heh heh…

    85:

    -Heh heh heh heh…

    87:

    -The workers' revolution will crush pig-dogs like you.

    88:

    -Boom! Headshot!

    Kagetenshi is absolutely right

    they arn't talking nonsense. It's just pretty hard to see what they are saying. but with a good imagination you can puzzle them together. (and i'm not good t this^^)

    nb: thx for your translation
