    Default Aliens or Yokai?

    Okay, I dont know if this has been discussed before, but I was just wondering if you guys think the creatures dealt with in Gantz are all aliens or not. From reading the recent couple chapters, we get glimpses of the shaggy hair dude banging a Rokurokubi (japanese demon that can stretch neck), as well as that giant dude saying something along the lines of "give us back our land". I was just wondering if maybe rather than aliens, these are all simply japanese demons from mythology that aim to reclaim the Earth as their own, yet they have existed on Earth this whole time, rather than from outer space. Any thoughts?

    They're obviously Youkai aliens.

    It's already been demonstrated that Gantz plays fast and loose with the term "alien". That or there's more to Tae than is obvious at first glance.

    I am starting to suspect somthing i used to believe at the beggining of gantz. That all of this is less about hunting aliens and more about entertaining gantz. I am not saying this is definitely what i believe, but does anyone else think with all its technolog,y and the morphing technology we have seen in the vampires , that it is possible that gantz is engineering these aliens for the sole purpose of having a hunt?


    its just one avenue i have been pondering because we still haven't really been told why gantz wants the gantzers to do what they are doing. The fact that nothing is explained, that gantzers are able to kill other gantzers as well as aliens make this seem more like a gladitorial event. Also the limited region in which to fight is pushes me towards this conclusion. Have you noticed how the aliens never flee could it be for the same reason the gantzers don't (cause their heads could explode and they know it?).

    Even though kurono failed to kill the last shorty alien why was gantz content to let it live a while? and why hasn't gantz sent the gantzers against the vampires. Surely with all his technology he is able to track them better than a cheesy tabloid journalist.

    I may not be on the ball with this but i think i have raised some reasonable points for discussion.

    Gantz could be a group of rouge aliens killing off competion so they can take Earth. The Gantz's probably, if they are aliens like to toy with their opponents ex. using the game like hunting to off other aliens. Also explains the suits and weapondry and Gantz database of aliens. This of course is just a thought.

    if this is for entertaining that skinny nude bald matrixated (just invented) bastard, then I could understand that. Being stuck in a black stinky ball for da rest of my life would suck azz.

    I would agree that Gantz is all about aliens until the point where the vampires were introduced, I think Gantz just focuses on the supernatural. I'm almost certain that the anime will soon focus on creatures like lycans and the undead soon.
    In fact, in the current story arc, many of the "aliens" remind me of ghosts, but thats just me.

    Errrrrrrrr, I'm sorry, did I miss something here? I'm going to believe that you were trying to say the manga, right??? RIGHT?????

    now, be careful with what answer are you going to give, your life could depend on it....

    Gantz can't be a man or an alien just having fun because the Vampires want to destroy it.

    Well, this Nuriyahou (or what ever) didn't have a word Alien after it, so I think it ain't an alien, although Tae was a different kind of thing... She being an alien was just "ridicilous".
