Different Gantz have different rules? Reasons why things are done this way.
Do all of the Gantz have the same rules that the Tokyo Gantz does? Are there allowed to do things however they wish as long as the job gets done?
I'm curious why Gantz doesn't see all those dying, and decide to bring back everyone who has ever earned a certain number of points before. He would thus make a better team. Of course, they do win most of their missions, there only one failure so far, that when just one got away, so it doesn't really matter.
Perhaps this way he gets to test out more people, and when the time comes when there is an absolute need, bring back all the best hunters.
Could it be the Osaka team members are not afraid of dying, because their Gantz has initiated a policy of automatic free resurrections if any die after earning a certain number of points? That would explain their attitude.
Eliminate the fear of dying, and it could either make people into fearless warriors, no reason for them to not fight to the best of their ability, or it could make them arrogant pricks who don't take things seriously when they should.
If Gantz was really up to select only capable people for the job, he could have re-summoned Kurono in the beginning of the 2nd phase. Or bring back Katou, who showed great value in the Budha arc, since he still had brain activity until just before the transfer start - 1000 arms was already dead by then.
That said, I'm of the opinion that Gantz set the hunts for his own amusement, and for that there must be at least one strong person among the group - Izumi and Kurono are gone, but there's Katou, Kaze and the psychic duo (not anymore, but still). And for those with the potential, the outcome of the hunts will mold them, whether they're really up to the game or not. If they are, they'll continue earning points, and by doing so, might actually get to prefer this game reality and chose to stay, like Izumi or the Osakans. But if they don't manage to live when stronger foes come, then they're lacking strength, and so are discarded. Remember the Budha mission? Sniper and Sakuraoka had strong potential, Sniper just rocked - oh, imagine what he could've become if he had lived, possibly a NKG type. They were good, but they were also extremly unlucky to think the giant budha was the boss, so they were caught off guard by 1000 arms super abilities. It doesn't matter to Gantz, they weren't able to do the job, so off with them, If they can keep up the good work, be it panda or kid, good, if not, that's bye bye, be it Izumi or NKG.
The Osakans cocky attitude most likely derives from clearing the game more than once and that makes perfect sense, although I don't disregard the "extra life" theory which came up some time ago in another thread. Still, I find it highly unlikely, although not impossible. (maybe after clearing 10 times)
And at this time, it'd be really hard theorizing about the rules being different. It's a thought.
For the Tokyo team, they got visible during the Oni hunt, and also the timer was off then.
For the Osakan team, it's likely to have become like that in a previous hunt too, given none of them seemed surprised by the situation. (of course, if this current mission is indeed their first hunt using the new set of rules, they could've talked about it "off-screen" so that Oku wouldn't have to waste pages with the same reaction.

i think all gantz is the same in term of ability (weapons, bring back people) they just different in attitude, the way of speaking that is
And maybe there's different people inside the different balls. I had that impression after seeing chapter 246 and 255 front covers. Like, inside the Osakan "Gantz" (provided that's also its name) there'd be a girl.
I always though the Ball person was just used as a conduit to communicate with Gantzees. So maybe the German Ball had a German person in it etc. It would make since since Gantz is lazy and using the dead is its thing. It has been suggested Tokyos Ball dude is a retard because of the misspellings and mistakes (duplicates). Probably the same loose rules with a localized spin.

^ Since the Osakan ball also uses the same "font" as the Tokyo ball (for instance, the inverted hiragana "no"), I don't think either of them are retards, just eccentric. As for the "screw-ups" they don't necessarily have to be a mistake if we consider his sense of humour.
Can you all speculate in the latest chapter thread please? We have nowhere near enough information on the other rooms for a good discussion.
^Lol, isn't this like the 4th useless thread That's the theory anyway created this week? Goddamn.
