Turns out I was wrong on one point above, Nishi would definitely be classed as Conduct Disorder rather than ODD. CD is basically APD for people too young for APD—age is important, because people do sometimes grow out of CD but once they reach adulthood (and the APD diagnosis) it's pretty much with them for life.
Failure: when your best just isn't good enough.
Oh, no, Nishi's definitely not psychotic—psychosis is a break from reality (delusions, hallucinations, disordered thinking and speech, etc.), and Nishi's been functioning pretty well—that is, assuming that any of Gantz is reality, but I think the series has gone on a bit too long for Oku to pull that particular twist. Conduct Disorder, though (and Psychopathy/APD when he turns 18 if nothing changes), he's a textbook case.

About Nishi I cant say much about him since nothing much has been revealed about him or his past. I think he had bad experience with teamwork in the past. Nishi acts like a badass but he has a sensitive side to him as he started to cry when he was dieing. Also you have to imagine the constant fear that nishi go though that he could die any day and has to survive alone it could mess anyone up.Also I doubt he could convince people to wear the gantz suits I mean look at the success, Kato convince half the people to wear the suits and he is a high schooler. Nishi is only a middle school student nobody would have taken him seriously. Also many people who stay in gantz for too long becomes messed up in the head, I mean look at the ozaka gantzers and Izumi.
I would like to rate a Gantzer
Pros = .........Human shield, distraction for enemy
Cons= Too dependent, she is always clinging on to Kato.
Stupid irrational thinking, like with that bird alien she wanted to jump in the water to help Kato without even thinking of a plan which Nishi did and looked what happened to him . Also her death was completely unnecessary , if she had the time to place herself in front of Kato she could have pulled him away and she had her suit on so strength was not an issue.
I would give her 3/10 I honestly could not think of more pros.
Also about Kato why does he have a problem of blasting aliens into pieces? He has no problem of ripping,cutting or crushing them into pieces.
During the Buddha mission, he commits to the Y-gun but when he saw Sadayo and Hojo dying he went "berserk"... as in he actually shot the X-gun after he lost his Y-gun. Later he also draws the X-gun again during his fight with the statue bodyguard, but that was mainly because Kurono was running out of time. Of course he picks up the sword later on as well. Katou uses his power to protect ppl, but he knows that some times killing is also required to safe ppl. But... if killing is the only way, he'll most likely let the others do the killing while he helps out(holding the fast statue by the foot so that the others can shoot it) or squeezing out the Tanaka alien.
I'm not 100% sure... but if you don't count "transferring" as a kill(froggy and "likey" cyclops)... then Katou has only actually killed 1 or 2 aliens intentionally - the statue bodyguard(rips his arms off and uppercuts him) and 1000-Arms. The rest were by accident... the Tanaka bird dying outside the suit and just recently, the big one with the fast tail.

I'm no Kishimoto fan at all but I wouldn't say she's useless.
Pros: Very loyal.
She works well on teams.
Willing to cooperate.
I think she proved she's not afraid to kill.
She cares about the other people on the team.
Cons: She's booksmart, but she doesn't seem all that smart when it comes to survival.
She might be a distarction. ^_^
Doesn't think things through.
She's a schoolgirl so she never learned how to fight. I don't think so.
Maybe 6/10. I think she's a good Gantzer. She understands what to do and she tried. The way she died was a really stupid way to get rid of her. I doubt we got to see her full potential.
I'd say Tetsu deserved a 3.

I'll do Sniper...
Pros= expertise with X-rifle, military training(i really just infer this), works well with team and actually listens to what Katou tells him to do, very good at hiding, good aim
Cons= didn't wear the suit, didn't get much experiance, bad luck
Sniper was a very good potential Gantzer that I think died too suddenly. Even if he had worn the suit, it wouldn't have protected him from the lasors that penetrated his skull. Additionaly, his desicion to try a new way of attacking the Buddha backfired, and if he had shot him again 1000 arms might have died. Bad luck. So basically, Oku just killed him off to build up Kurono's character, because if he hadn't such bad luck and been overtly brave, he had potential to kill him. If Sniper had been in other missions, he would have kicked ass, but sadly he had to meet his fate with many other great gantzers to the 1000 arms.
