Man, even the Gantz releases are more fucked up than usual...what a shitty week for RAWs, eh?
Title: The Westerners
Text: Instinct runs like a machine. From the pit of one's womb, the senses throb and ache.
Text: The battle has brought East and West together.
Old lady: That kid's from Tokyo, ain't he?
Old dude: Huh...Yeah, I guess so.
Who was he again...Somebody....Raizou
Old lady: Raizou!!
Old dude: Eh, not Raizou.
Sada Keiji, yeah?
Old lady: That ain't Sada Keiji, either.
Old dude: Yeah but if ya had ta pick, he looks more like Raizou, yeah?
Anzu: Why're ya so obsessed with doin' the "right thing"?
Katou: What're you talking about?
Anzu: I'm just wonderin'...
how I'd have to raise a kid to get 'em to be like you.
your parents? Whatta they do?
My dad was a firefighter.
He and my mom died in a car accident when I was in 8th grade.
Anzu: Ah...any siblings?
You an only child?
Katou: One little brother...
He's in third grade.
Anzu: They got him in an orphanage or anythin'?
Katou: We live together in an apartment...
he's probably there alone right now.
Anzu: Make sure ya don't die, then.
Yer lil' brother'll be all alone.
Anzu: I...have a son, he's three, and we live together...
Same as you.
He's alone in the apartment now, too...
I understand just how you're feelin' right now.
Anzu: I can't be dyin' on him.
No matter what.
Same here. No matter what.
Anzu: So did your dad bein' a fireman inspire ya or somethin'?
Katou: Heh...maybe, I never really thought about it.
Anzu: Seriously, I was pretty shocked.
I ain't ever met a guy like you before ANYWHERE in Japan.
Katou: Maybe I'm just weird like that, eh?
Anzu: I'm COMPLIMENTIN' ya, doofus!
Black guy: This one's tough!
It's too damn big, and fast!
top bubble: GYAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
Other osakans: Smash it from above!
The fuck's up with this thing!
Katou: Those guys...
something's different about them...
Anzu: They're all different races.
They'll definitely survive.
Old lady: What's with them kids?
Old dude: They're just shootin' the breeze,
and totally ignorin' us.
anzu: The black dude over there.
His nickname in the hunt is "George."
His real name's Shimaki or somethin'.
He's gotten 100 points 3 times.
He's probably the lowest one in the bunch...fights like a retard.
anzu: The tall dude with the shaved head
is Muroya Nobuo.
His nickname's "Knob".
Cleared the game 4 times.
Thinks he's invincible, fights like a maniac, and acts like the leader.
Anzu: The scum with his suit half-off
is Kuwabara Kazuo, or just Kuwabara...
He's cleared it 3 times, too.
and a serious perv. Dude rapes women, aliens, anythin' with a wet hole. He's disgustin'.
Anzu: The guys we saved earlier are the Sadist Trio,
Taira Sanpei, Hara Tetsuo,
and Kimura Susumi. All cleared the hunt once.
Next is those two chicks over there:
The blond one's Knob's girl, Yamanaka Miho.
The other one's Yamada Sumiko.
anzu: The one on the bike's
Full name's Hanaki Kyou, gotten 100 points twice.
He shoots up every time there's a battle. He's nuts.
the last one...
Katou: How many of you are there?
Anzu: He's gotten 100 points 7 times... Oka...Hachirou...
He's definitely here somewhere、stayin' invisible and lurkin' in the shadows...
SFX: BOOM BOOM
SFX: BOOM BOOM
Page 15: N/A
what the hell's up with all of 'em?
They don't even understand Japanese.
Vamp: They don't know who we are.
And since we're broadcasting the same "enemy" signal as the hunters, they have no problem with killing us.
V-chick: God damnit...
What're we gonna do about this?
Text: Is this the start of an old-fashioned East vs. West katana death match? Next volume will be a super-sized 25-pager! (In the 7/12 issue!)
I am available for professional manga and text translations and audio/video projects. PM or e-mail me for quotes.
As always, hisshouburaiken, you're Johnny-on-the-spot with your expert translation of our favorite manga.
Great job, and thanks!
Your translation makes much more sense. Thank you!
Why is the black guy the weakest one? Makes no sense... I like his name "George" tho...
He probably thinks he's awesomely cool or something.

yeh and that kuwabara guy from yu yu hakasho.
Don't forget Oka Hachirou!~! Kinda similar to Oku Hiroya
Wow, this new translation majes the Osakan Gantzers alot less "elite", the black guy looked like he was the shit but apparently he´s the weakest.
And Anzo´s conversation with Katou is alot more believable, i wondered why Katou said that his brother was 3 years old younger than him...
I don't think George is the weakest. It just says he can be reckless at times. I got to say though, first time I saw the BFG used by George was really disappointing. He seem to be struggling against that bird alien. I don't even want to imagine what kind of mistakes he would make soloing a boss.
