    Say it with me, folks: "we don't know".

    There's no evidence either way. We don't know when people can be revived. We don't know when they can't. We don't know when people get revived and are still on a Gantz team. We don't know when people get revived and released free into the wide world. We don't even know (though we have a strong guess) whether the Vampires have really been "recruited"—since they didn't come in the normal way, they could possibly be home free after this mission (I seriously doubt that, but once again, we don't know). We haven't seen enough revivals of different types to be able to make a guess.

    The only basis for speculation we have is metaknowledge—Oku's storytelling style and typical storytelling techniques. Especially in the case of this series, I'd call that an extremely bad guide.

    Okay this is my first post here on these boards (be gentle)

    Now while everyone is speculating on whether Kurono will be revived by Kato....what if he has already been revived? We have seen in older parts of the book where Gantz will wait until the last possible moment to bring someone to the room. What if Gantz did bring Kurono back to the room, except in another part of the room (Like stalker girl). Then once all the members had left for the mission he transported Kurono to Osaka.

    And speaking of memories, he could bea clean slate, or who is to say that Gantz couldn't program him with a completely different set of memories. But I guess that would be going a bit far.

    But it would make an interesting plot twist to have Kato in trouble and then have Kurono literally jumping into the battle in a confused berserker type state.

    Anyway, just my two thoughts....

    Nope! Same treatment for all, but nice try

    (Seriously, welcome, grab a seat and join the wild speculation )

    It would be possible, but it would involve Oku, in omniscient-narrator-mode, explicitly and directly lying to us at the end of Phase 1, which is such a surefire way to annoy readers that I can't give any real credence to the idea.

    And speaking of memories, he could bea clean slate, or who is to say that Gantz couldn't program him with a completely different set of memories. But I guess that would be going a bit far.
    Eh. Again, even for him to have legitimately died and then been snagged post-death would have to require Oku being openly deceptive while in omniscient-narrator mode. It requires either open contempt for the readers or a level of cluelessness with the art of storytelling that Oku has not demonstrated.

    Basically, I can't imagine these are likely at all.

    Do you remember that gantzers freeze before the mission? Ex. Kurono holding on to Kishi's boobies and being stuck there. If Reika froze that would give that vampire enough time to pull her back and Reika couldn't do anything about it.

    Ahhh, I had totally forgotten about that little detail, thank you kind sir for reminding me.
    Hmm...I agree that it's too early to have Kurono revived so....I'm going to go with Oka or Nishe getting the final kill and using it on a cool new weapon or perhaps reviving somebody other than Kei-chan. We all know Kei's revival is imminent but it's doubtable that it would come after only one mission.
    In other words, nothing profound or constructive to add to the thread.

    It should have been carved unto you're memory(well.. it did for me since that was one of the parts that almost made me piss myself laughing-seriously.)

    And because i'm pretty bored i'll also add a joke(which i translated from hebrew so it might not sound so funny);
    2 rish guys play golf together for almost 30 years.
    1 day they both decide to confess to one another about their real proffesions.
    the first(named joseph) says:
    Ilan, i have a confession to make.
    I helped Bill Gates(you have to forgive me if i spelled it wrong) start out with his windows idea and we became buisiness partners.
    And Ilan replies:
    That's nothing, I'm an assassin and i charge 100 thousand dollars per kill.
    Then Joseph asks:
    And you never miss?
    Ilan:No, I have my rifle right here.*he pulls out a rifle from his golf bag and Joseph thinks:No wonder he doesn't miss, this thing looks like a satellite rather then a rifle.*
    however, Joseph is interested and asks:
    Can you see my house from here with you're rifle?
    Ilan:Yes*he does a few adjustments and lets Joseph look through the scope.*
    Joseph sees his wife in the bedroom with his neighboor and gets pissed off.He then tells Joseph:
    I have 2 targets for you;His penis and her head.
    Ilan then makes a few adjustments to his scopes and says:
    Joe, this is you're lucky day.You'll get 2 hits for the price of one.

    (I'm sorry if it isn't funny and will remove it if no one likes it)

    ^You can post that in the offtopic thread.
    Since you posted it here, I won't read or laugh at your joke, nor anybody else.
