    Some of you may have forgotten that Nishi can be quite sadistic. He may be letting people die because he enjoys seeing them in pain as they're moments away from death. Recall Nishi's comment about the yakuza guy blowing up?

    I believe teams are only eligible to deal with 100 pointers if a certain amount of players on the team reach 100 points at least once. Plot aside, would make sense that after 6 members of Team Tokyo all reached 100 points, Gantz decided to put them in a real mission.

    nishi said on his website that the end of the world was near and that they're slowly getting invaded, so the trigger to make the mission harder should be time, i guess. It would be the reason why nishi had it easy and why the mission when kurono was alone was still pretty hard.
    as time passes, the mission's simply get harder.

    I get the impression Izumi had hard missions in the past though because you can't become a badass just fighting Onions all day. I think the missions are getting harder on average, but not necessarily more difficult every single time.

    Not just because he says the world is getting invaded.
    It also happens because it wouldn't be fun to read if the enemies wouldn't be getting stronger from mission to mission (or the missons wouldn't get harder). There are exceptions though, but overall they have to get stronger. It's the same with almost every fighting manga.


    But I disagree that Kurono's chibi mission was pretty hard. It was hard because he acted like an idiot.
    Jumping so close to the alien without thinking. Had he used the radar, advanced slowly and watched them from another roof, he could've spotted how many aliens he was facing, without being surrounded. That already helps alot.
    Then just snipe them from a distance while they try to get close (he knew the rifle could do that).
    Or even better, observe them and lock-on to all the aliens you can see (although I don't know if he knew about that feature back then) and snipe the rest.
    If you use the stealth function on top of that the mission get's fairly easy (don't know if he knew about that either).
    But even if he didn't knew about stealth and lock-on, just with sniping it get's easier.
    When they stop jumping from roof to roof because they are easy targets and try to get to you some other way, you just shouldn't stay on the same roof.
    Change position and snipe them when the reach the top.
    That way even if you don't kill them all, at least you can end the mission without having your suits arms ripped off and hiding like a little girl.


    It's just that Oku didn't want it to go down that way. Kurono had to lose that mission (probably also in the way he did) for him to grow.

    gantz is not a fighting manga, though. but the end of the world scenario actually implyes stronger or at least more aliens.
