    Firstly, thanks for translating those ability graphs in the manual. Yeah, I think Int and Spd should be swapped, but as Ive said, I cant read them, so yeah, I can check out the rest of the teams stats now

    just be careful
    The unique stat is kind of humorous at times

    e.g. Titz: Bust - 6/5
    e.g. Cherry: Virginity - 5/5 (What the hell did you think Cherry was for, eh?)
    e.g. Dumbass: Nose Bleed - 5/5
    e.g. Homo: Girl Magnet - 0/5 (Either because the normal guy hates chick magnets, or because he attracted the wrong kind of girl... probably both)
    e.g. Hot Chick(I think it reads "Bijin" but that's just Sei to all of us) : Sex - 5/5
    e.g. Kurono's n# 1 f4n : Sex appeal - 4(5?)/5
    e.g. Izumi: Level-Headed - 5/5
    e.g. Nishi: Cheap/Playing Dirty/Low ("Hikyo") - 5/5
    e.g. Inaba: (Hard to translate)Very Insignificant/complete lack of importance: 5/5
    also, not everyone has one... Kaze/Katou, for example...

    On a side note, the global ranking - only Izumi(Straight 5/5)/Sei(0 for luck)/Kurono have an S... Katou/Psychic Bros/Kaze = A...
    Disclaimer: Arggg, Popo, its not me, its the goddammed manual that says that!!!

    I think that's all of it...

    as you can see, it's not always something positive

    this probably should have been under the gantz faq, or something though... soz Tet...

    ^ 5/5 for sex, huh? Kurono must've been quite the lucky guy.

    It's interesting that Sei was ranked S.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but there are no stats for Tougou (the sniper), right? I wonder what rank he'd get.

    ^^Don't get me wrong. Katou is slow in the ways of gantz so naturally he'd get an A. His first mission was mostly him on the ground with his arm almost in two. Plus I've already read the manual... well looked through it...

    ^Tougo should def get an S if Sei got an S, but it doesn't say.

    Heaps of players that showed a minimum of gantz skills don't have a rating, mainly,i guess, because they don't really relate to the Main Characters, and or/they die. The Yakuza guy doesn't, Tougo doesn't, and that Karate Guy from the Buddha Arc doesn't, for example... still Tougo is kind of surprising - I mean, he is featured in the video game, and so is sadako (who gets a C, i think), but he doesn't have a rating in the manual. I guess they didn't factor in how popular the silent sniper was when the Manual was made...
    That said, the main, if not the only reason why Kurono has an S (It could have been just an A, or even a B) is because of his unique stat. Katou sports four 4s and a 3, I think, While Kurono, the additional stat notwithstanding, has a 4, 3 3s, and a 1.
    Still considering Sei has an S despite getting zero for luck, I tend to think that Luck relates more to their fate in gantz (Kurono and Sei are handed out bad lots... No one can really say no to Kurono's 1/5 in luck after Tae, His classroom, and how he died end of phase 1), than being an actual rating factor for the global rank... in that sense, Kurono wouldn't be that far beneath Katou in terms of Normal Stats, but still below.
    Edit:On a sidenote despite his premature death, Izumi's 5/5 for luck probably factors in the fact that he cleared Gantz once (even though some people might say that after Osaka, 100 points isn't that much of a big deal...), and that he is a minor idol wherever he goes (owing to his godly mental/physical stats)

    What am I trying to say? Well, if you are going to use the manual as a Basis for Gantz RPG threads, think twice before handing out global ratings...

    P/S: Argg Duhfreak, don't post something like that here! Look around, or use the off-topic thread!!!
    Great... now I am beginning to sound like a Mod too... o.O

    Mind those grades are for Growth. If the stats are totalled by out of 5, Kurono gets 19 whilst Kato gets 20, but Kurono has an S, whilst Kato gets A.

    Btw, for those wanting the RAW manual (that includes the graphs in the comic section) then I'd say do a search here, then there is a thread that gives a Megaupload link in the first post that says PS, btw its a RAW. That'll be it.

    Thumbs down don't trust me so much people... even I make dumb mistakes when reading tables...

    Actually... I just checked Katou's stat again - seemed like too much - Confirmed - Kurono has 4 for int. Katou has 3 for Int, 4 for Str and End, 2 for luck, and 3 for speed - So Katou adds up to 16, and Kurono to 19, so the A/S makes more sense. Sei Scores 24 (six stats, a 0 a 4 and four 5s)
    However, if Sex is a useless stat, then she still comes down to 19 - same as Kurono, hence the S, i guess...Izumi scores 30/30, and his bonus stat has some battle applicability as well... When you think about it - the manual has a very low pass mark - I mean you get an A for get just a little bit over 50%...
    Man, I said I wasn't sure about Katou... (okay, i'll admit i didn't spell it out...)
    Just to put some more perspective on the debate Kaze has an A (3/5 int/luck, I think, and I am guessing his 6/5s are all in the 3 physical stats), so that's actually 24/25... that much more than either Katou, or Kurono
    Old man has some really shit stats (1,2,1 for the physical stats and 3,5 for int,luck, and 5/5 for his unique "altruism") totals 17, and gets an A
    That optional stat remains a problematic issue though - Reika (I think - READ: I THINK) has a flat 3/5 for every normal stat and a 4 or 5/5 for sex appeal. That adds up to 19 or 20... i.e either equal to or less than Kurono, but she scores a B. If you remove the Sex appeal thing, she drops down to 15... so... arg... sorry... too tired to discuss this anymore... "Yawns" maybe I will edit it tommorrow... assuming I dont feel lazy...

    been reading the comic for a few time now, even search on the net. I still dun get it how is katou the main character of gantz. All my years of comic experience tell me kurono is the main character of gantz, even most of the net information is pointing towards this. Correct me if i am wrong. =]
