    Default Misc. Questions from a forgetful soul...

    Things have been moving kind of slowly for the comic, and I've started to forget things, so I wanted to know if any Gantz experts could remember a few misc. things about the game.
    1. They've never had a problem with clothes, and I think the vampires hitching a ride answers this, but has there been any examples of people taking things back from a mission like large objects, cash register money, alien mementos, etc?
    2. Does anyone know if there's any indication of normal aging while in gantz? If you lived long enough, you'd still grow old and everything right?
    3. Anyone remember if Gantz himself has been attacked, I seem to remember a light gun not working, but not an actual physical attack.
    4. Have we seen other 100 pt weapons besides panda boy's sword?
    5. How much does Gantz' apartment cost? It's a studio, but still, prime tokyo real estate!

    Any answers appreciated. Thanks.

    Further silly questions: Gantz is in tokyo, they have quakes, why hasn't he just rolled away!?

    Don't remember that ever happening. Seems like Gantz beams them back in pretty much in the same condition that he beams them there. They can obviously take stuff with them to the room. Their clothes come with them and any personal items they may have had in their pockets, probably even bags. Even entire people have been transfered with them. But when Homo and stalker chick were transported, the bike they were riding on didn't come with. Maybe it was too big or maybe Oka is just inconsistent. But I don't remember anyone even trying to take anything back.

    I don't think anyones live long enough to find out yet. But I do believe that they will age normally. Their basically clones and theres nothing to stop a clone from getting older.

    He has, but the gun had no effect. It doesn't seem possible to hurt Gantz if you were transported to the room. HS tried to and couldn't do it.

    I don't believe that the sword is a 100 point weapon. It's just that no one ever thought of using it before Izumi. Kind of like how Kei only discovered the room with the bike during the Dino mission even though it was always there.

    I'd say at least $3,500.00 a month. It has lots of closet space and an incredible view.

    1. I'm not 100% sure, but I guess that, with the exception of the things the people have with them when transfering to the area of the hunt and, of course, the weapons provided by Gantz, nothing 'dead' can be transfered. Thinking about the whole 'copying'-thing, it makes sense to me that Gantz makes a copy of everybody before sending them into action and reloads this version of them after that. He surely updates their memories and may consider letting them hold the weapons they have when coming back, but it is plausible. Remember the Tanaka mission? Kurono had simply 'dropped' the memory of fighting and killing the boss. In my interpretation, this seems like a clue for Gantz being a bit sloppy while updating their data. But that's only my oppinion, not something I know absolutely sure.

    2. Well, 50/50. Either they do age or they don't. But if Gantz makes a copy every time he calls them to his room (Which I actually think that he does, if you look at them wearing different clothes all the time), then they would age.

    3. Nishi and Kurono both stuck their fingers into Gantz' ear to see the list of the fallen ones. And you're right: Kurono shot Gantz with an X-Gun after the Buddha arc, so that he would bring everyone back. As we know, Gantz didn't. He may actually have been scared or pissed by that, so that would be a possible explanation for Kurono having to face the Shorty Aliens all by himself and being threatend with death during the Dino mission, if he didn't achieve at least 15 points. Anyway, I don't really think that Gantz could be harmed. It might be that a forcefield, like those on the walls, would kick in if somebody tried to harm him. Or he can be killed and it would lead to a massive selfdestruction of the ball, destroying Tokyo? Don't know, really. I remember a scene where the blonde vampire was about to attack Gantz with his Katana and suddenly stopped. It could be his own decision... or a forcefield. We'll see, cause I think that he might try it again.

    4. Izumi's Sword isn't a 100 points weapon. The only reason why nobody ever used it before is that, that nobody ever knew that the door next to Gantz would open up after the deployment of weapons and suits has started. The only real 100 points guns known are those really big ones from the Osaka team.

    5. Dunno. Ask Oka, or somebody living in Tokyo.

    Silly: Sillier than 5? Well, he hasn't gone rolling cause Gantz is actually a ball and there is kind of a round crater in the apartement's ground, in which the ball is standing, I think. But that image I have on my mind is only from the anime, so it might be different in the manga.

    *Picturing Gantz sending Host Samurai on a mission on his own for trying to attack him*



    Btw, Host Samurai isnt blonde, he has light blue hair as shown on the Gantz PS2 game cover.
