    That's the point, it's only mentioned he's a transfer student, it's not like he just came to live in Tokyo. He already got himself a home there anyway. I think he just changed schools. Besides, the teacher would mention if he was an outsider, or at least one'd think she would.

    Yeah, its very possible that he transfered from one school in Tokyo to another. And I don't necessarily think the teacher would announce where the student is from. They didn't do that in my school unless there may have been a potential language barrier.

    A lot of the time with Gantz you don't get a very detailed profile on people because, well, chances are they'll be dead soon lol. There are obviously points for and against it but I'd still like to keep this possibility open.

    Another thing. In his convo with Nishi I believe he mentioned making Japan #1. He didn't say that he wanted it to be just the Tokyo team. That might mean something in terms of him being considered a leader.

    In Izumi's memories, the major hunt that he recalled was on the same street as he comitted the mass murder on, wasn't it? I thought the reason he picked that major street was because he wanted to relive that hunt. If I'm remembering this correctly, that's conclusive proof that Izumi was from the Tokyo Gantz group.

    I've been thinking about the flashbacks Izumi has before the Dino Mission. The ones that show his old teammates. It still bothers me a little that Nishi isn't in any of the flashbacks. Also, for some reason those guys in the flashbacks look pretty strong to me.
    What chapter showed Izumi's flashback?

    I like your theory Tousen and it could likely be true but I'm still convinced that he was from Tokyo. Also, He might have been from another major city like Hiroshima or Okinawa or somewhere else in Japan. Maybe Nishi got 'transfered' for some reason from one gantz ball to another (What if a gantzer moves or goes on a trip, how far away can Gantz call him back. I mean, Tokyo went to Osaka but wouldn't it make more since that if they were in Osaka at the time of teleportation to the room that they would be moved to Osaka? I don't know but it makes me think).
    Also, I believe that Nishi could've had a Nerdo to Kuwabara relationship where Kuwa/Izumi doesn't give a rats ass about what happens to him.

    I looked up the pages quoting the name of the street, turns out I did remember correctly. Here are the pictures:

    Izumi's memory of a previous hunt:
    Gantz 119 page 16-17 | One Manga

    The place Izumi planned to commit the massacre for Gantz to recruit new Tokyo team members:
    Gantz 120 page 10 | One Manga

    I don't think it was a combined team mission. Nothing of that sort was mentioned at all.

    I hope this won’t seem rude (because I do think your theory is interesting, even though it's incorrect), but know from now on that you should consult the Gantz Manual before posting a theory. Not only does it give confirmation that Izumi was indeed a resident of Tokyo when he first died, but also the name and character file of each of the mysterious hunters shown in his flashback of the room, and I assure you that none of them were Oka (unless one of them changed their name).

    However, if you don’t have the Gantz Manual, or you do but have no interest in reading it, just private message me any questions you might have regarding Phase 1. I’m sure I can tell you pretty much everything you want to know.

    Edit: Sorry, I forgot that the Manual hasn’t been scanlated yet (though you could probably understand most of the good stuff anyway); forgive me of my criticism. I just wanted to shed some light on the situation before things got out of hand. You know newbs. Once they read something like a theory, they spread it across the internet as fact (well, most of them do), and I doubt you want that to happen with yours. There are already enough misinformed people in the Gantz fan base (just to be clear, you're not one of the people I’m talking about).

    Oh, and thanks for making such a great thread (I'm not being sarcastic). The Gantz sub-forum hasn't had one in a while (darkus' Oka thread being the last).

    I think that the main reason why Oku didn't show Nishi in Izumi's flashback is that he had not yet planned Nishi's return, or if he did, it will somewhat spoil his reappearance. And maybe, those guys on the flashback are just like the guys following him in the Tae mission.

    HAHAHAHAHA, if you're not being sarcastic thanks, if you are then you are getting in serious trouble junior...

    I've never seen the manual and I'm kinda surprised that they would have something that gives info a lot of info on characters that weren't even named. Just put it in the manga damn it!!!

    I didn't take it as criticism. I wanted other peoples opinions not for everyone to subscribe to the theory. It is just a theory after all. I'll say that again...It is JUST A THEORY after all. And I don't want people spreading anything unconfirmed as fact. I hate that. Especially when they change what you said.

    Yes, the Oka thread rocks!!!

    If you want to check it out, just run a search for it. You should find it in no time.

    I thought you'd consider me telling you to "know from now on that you should consult the Gantz Manual before posting a theory" a criticism of your research method.
