    Default Osaka Team - what is known?

    Well we have now seen quite a bit of the Osaka. I know a lot of comments have been made about their behaviour before but lets use this thread to establish what we actually know about them other than that they are drug abusing sadists.

    They seem to be more advanced than the Tokyo team because of their guns which are obviously different to the ones the Tokyo team is using.

    At the same time we know they are not as advanced as Izumi's original team was. We know this because Izumi and Nishi were both aware of the existance of other teams around the world, but when the Osaka team and the current Tokyo team meet up both teams are really suprised to see each other.


    Please feel free to add your constructive thoughts here.

    Intresting,i Honestly think they are doing just as good as the previous teams. I am just wondering if there is more then one Gantz and if they are in a competition or something

    First of all, they seem to have been in Gantz for a while. They really enjoy the missions and are good at killing aliens. They also have stronger weapons wich could indicate that different Gantz room have different stuff available. Like, maybe the Osaka team has better guns while the Tokyo team has swords and stronger suits.

    It's either that or the possibility that these guns are the 100-point weapon, but I doubt it. They don't look impressive enough.

    They may not have as much knowledge as Izumi's team, but they're certainly better equipped. Look at what Nishi fights with.

    the Osaka team not rushing up to save the civvies shows us two things they're cold and heartless, but it's probably why they stayed alive- not sticking out your neck to protect someone stops the risk of it getting cut. and I don't think that the trained with each other the way the Tokyo team did.
    so the way they act now is most likely how they live their 'regular' lives.


    oh one question- is it just me or is there a lack of fresh meat? on the Osaka team it didn't look like any new "gantzers"

    Nishi's extremely experienced, and fights with an X-pistol (occasionally a Y-pistol). That suggests to me that he believes that to be all that is required, though I do seriously question his choice to not bring/use a katana. Nevertheless, for some reason he doesn't decide that even as much firepower as the X-rifles is necessary, and I doubt he'd get to 87 points on very bad decisions.

    Because hes too weak compared to other Gantzers in order to fight hand to hand. A sword might increase his chances to win in closecombat fights. But u need to be trained to use a sword. I personaly didnt like it when kurono all of a sudden got a sword...and he was so godlike lol

    Default Nishi is a cautious fighter

    Kurono has always had a strange ability to adapt to situations. I don't think his sword skills were ever as good as Izumi's but kurono has always managed to pull something off at the last minute. I wouldn't call him a god, I would just call him a survivor. But back to Nishi. I think Nishi is and always will be covert. He knows his weaknesses so he doesn't try things that would allow the enemy to exploit them. I doubt he trusts the osaka team either. He'll probably stay in the shadows until he feels it is beneficial to strike. As far as the osaka team is concerned, they probably let the innocent bystanders get killed because that way they can see what they are up against. If an alien spits acid. It might do it to an innocent bystander. Good to know if you are going to try to rush the alien. they remind me nishi's philosophy "When they(innocent people, gatnzers, etc.) are dying, the targets let their guard down." Episode 21 page 3

    I entirely agree with you about Nishi. He is like Kurama in Yuyu Hakusho: he likes to study the enemies and only after this plan how to kill the enemy (even "sacrificing" a team-mate). Well, its all he can do because he is too weak (we can see this in the fight against the suzuka alien). He only died 'cuz he had the urge to kill something, and was careless.

    in this matter, i wouldnt speak of advanced, its just that they dont know as much as izumis team knew

    its quiet sure that izumis team wasnt that advanced, because instead of the gun the osaka gantzers have, he has choosen to get free and i havent seen nishi recognizing the guns or speak of them.

    so its more likely that nishi has known someone with more information about gantz, perpahs someone in germany, but thats only a guess.
