Crazy plot twist. Is Kei actually Oka?
Crazy plot twist. Please read everything before posting. Critical opinions welcomed.
Granted this one is a stretch, a huge one, with a lot of holes in the theory.
Here goes. What if Oka Hachirou is Kei Kurono.
After the second mission Kei Kurono did not remeber killing the large boss bird.
Granted we all know that this was because Gantz messes up from time to time and forgets to fill in the blanks of the memories of the copies.
But what if, and this is a big "IF".
What if Gantz didn't scan Kurono back into the room. What if Gantz accidentally just created a new copy of Kurono and left the old copy lying on the top of that roof.
Granted Gantz goes through the old sector and blows up the heads but maybe something happened to make Gantz miss the old copy(HUGE hole in my theory)
Therefore. The "new copy" probably returned to his apartment and continued to live his life as if nothing had changed. The "old copy" probably showed up sometime later and saw that Gantz had screwed up and created the new copy of himself. He probably deduced that this was his chance to escape and left Tokyo. Unbeknownst to himself he settled down in Osaka assuming a new name Oka Hachirou. Sometime during this whole incident, Gantz in Osaka, read the implant still inside the "old copies" head and transported him into the room in Osaka. Effectively making him a member of the Osaka team.
One hole in this theory could be that the Oka Hachirou has cleared 100 points 7 times. But, we don't know how many games have gone by since Kei Kurono was freed from the game. Nor do we know how many games have gone by in Osaka compared to Tokyo.
So, there you have it. Any comments welcomed.
