    They probably mean whilst dead. No reason to believe that holding on to a dead body wouldn't work.

    Something tells me that the osaka team (or at least the girl with katou) will join the tokyo team.

    To me Gantz is doing much more than just "lend" his team to the "osaka's black ball" (osaka's gantz?). I believe each one of the "black-balls" in the world has personality. Gantz would charge for this help, that's for sure!

    So... What would be Gantz's money? Gantzers! So... We could see a whole different picture to Katou's leadership now AND add some more characters in a less painful way, because WE ALL MUST consent that, right now, Katou isn't 5% of what Kurono was as a main character. Oku need to work Katou a lot and he spent a good amount of pages (and arguments, and conflict) building the relationship between Katou and that girl (can't remember her name... sorry), wasting this effort would be pointless.

    Even if this crazy idea about the teams melding is wrong, I at least see some MAJOR twist in Katou by the end of this mission, to "gather back" the gantz fans out there (maybe that girl dies in his arms? Maybe his brother now lives in Osaka? xD).

    ^Not 5%? Popo, flame this guy...
    That said, about relationship... bleh, too much conjecture for my taste. Until the osaka arc is completely over, and the next one starts, we definitely won't be getting any answers, so this kind of debate is stale...

    Yeah although I agree we will see more of the Osaka team in some capacity, I don't think it would be that wholesale. Also I believe that would be more subtle and without many or any at all team swapping. Adding too many characters will dilute the story, we'll learn a bit about Oka because he's dropped hints of an eccentric personality ("I learned Karate... online.) and chick with a kid will die. She'll be in the category of girl hero wants to revive but struggles to do so, like with the lara craft girl Kei had sex with.

    As much as Gantz is nice with all the killing - people die, immortal characters suck some times - I think it wouldn't do any good adding to the list of people to ressurect. Anzu might help developing Katou's personality (don't know exactly which direction this would go) but if she just got killed and he vowed to revive her too, that'd be repititive. I think part of Sakata's point in not wanting more ressuctions wasn't only because he wanted to die, it was part of a resolution to help the team - they won't get anywhere if they only revive people. Izumi himself said they'd need new weapons (if I'm not mistaken and if the translation was accurate). By now I think at least some of them have realized going free is not exactly a good choice. The only one I can actually see beng revived is Kurono.
    I wouldn't bet on Izumi, because the one most likely to bring him back would be Kurono himself ("kishimoto or sei? New weapon? No, no, Izumi!") and that would depend on Kurono getting back, so...

    Anyway, who wanna bet we'll be kept in the dark as for Kurono being or not in the memory by the end of this mission?

    I would like see more of the Osaka gantzers. I hope we learn more of Kyou why he cleared 2 times and now wants out. Why he the only one besides Oka that has different equipment. Also a bit about his background I mean compared to the rest of the Osaka Gantzers he at least he seems capable of compassion when he is not high, he did save the Nerd's life.

    About Oka eccentric personality is that really a surprise? I mean who can function normal when you been doing Gantz missions for a very long time.
    Are there any normal long term veterans that has been in Gantz for a year or so?

    ^ Kyou wanted out? Aren't you mistaking him for the nerd?
    After all the bubble was in his pannel, and one would think saying that out loud wouldn't get him in good terms with Kyou for thinking about stealing his prey...

    And since these last comments have been off-topic anyway, I'd like to see how many points Anzu has gathered so far... surely, she must've done something in a hunt or two. It's so boring that the Osakan girls don't share the Osakan guys attitude...

    Amen to that. Personally, the only bit of team swapping I'd like to see happen is Kuwie Buwie for Inaba. I am otherwise content to have Baldy/Sakata permanently dead.

    As always, it's very hard to find anything to say to your posts except "good point". Still It's good to see that my Kurono Rezzing Izumi argument has lingered in memories. Other than that, weapons are the way to go. I personnally think that, unless something major happens to change his outlook, Katou is going to revive a few people -Kurono most likely of all (I strongly doubt we'll be seeing any of Kishimoto), endure a couple of identity/humanity crisis and then bail/die.

    I must humbly disagree on the topic of the osaka gantzers. When you look back at Gantz, almost every Character that does not die within the first few chapters of a mission is "worth developing" The priest, Sniper, Sei, The Rational "employee", Yakuza (okay, okay, zoku)... but none of them are. That would "dilute" the story too muc, to take demo's words.
    Agreed on Oka. Still, now that you mention it, what is a "normal" human being? Based on my experience, you don't meet that kind of person everyday...

    I am assuming that Anzu's H-Gun was hers, so that means 100 points, at least...
