    Just because the character was based in a real life person it doesn't exactly mean the real Oka Hachirou exists in the world of Gantz, making it possible it's not a quotation and hence it'd be a whole new personality, with those mentions being related actual part of the character's life, rather than just a joke.

    ^Ahem, get a hold of yourself man - you are barely making sense towards the end... calm down... breathe in, breathe out...
    That said, it does mirror my feelings - Fark when is that goddamn chapter going to be subbed!!!!!!! (an answer to this would be welcome...)
    oh yeah besides those two somewhat retarded comments, do we have a fix on Oka's gender yet? Cali, my linguist friend, any tips on this issue - from what I know, Ping Pong is popular, even as a woman's sport in Japan (I recall reading an article about a Japanese Ping Pong Champion -Female - who was about as popular as any teen idol) and this taking karate courses by correspondence sounds to me like one of these "self-defence" programs that are so popular among working women these days.

    For the guys who believe Nuri used a form that doesn't have regeneration or has run out of regeneration. I should point out that NONE of his previous forms lost his regeneration or transformation abilities.

    Further more he hasn't shown any loss in ability or slow down to indicate that he's loosing energy.

    ^ Well, he has shown at least one loss in ability; the other attacks directed at him were nullified as he just let they go through him except for the H-gun. We've seen Oka has managed to actually hit him, whether he can still regenerate or not, at least in that aspect he has appearantly lost a deffensive skill. Your sentence could also be put this way: "I should point out that none of his PREVIOUS forms lost his regeneration or transformation abilities."
    It's also kinda safe to assume the continuous attacks even though failed to kill him indeed weakened him in a way, for if he had no limits to his regeneration and multiplication, he'd be invincible and we all know that's not so, because the manga has to go on.

    @Shin: Too bad we can't listen to the characters voice in a manga... Still no conclusive proof, though it'd be nice if "he was a she". I thought someone had mentioned that the name would be certainly male (possibly in the Oka thread), actually I thought the one that had mentioned that was you, but guess I'm mistaken. And considering that suit, although it looks like a male, it could very well hide a girl inside, even if she had medium to big breasts, I think. There's also the metroidish resemblance. But then again, the real Oka Hachirou is a man. Heck.

    Assuming that theory is correct - about the only way to beat Nuri would be to hold him down long enough to send him with the capture gun - power would not make any difference... As for loss of ability, and slowing down, that doesn't mean much, either - the 1000 arm thingie was half disintegrated, but it turned into something else with full strength and abilities. As for the psychic powers not affecting Oka... i think we should be waiting until the end of arc to say that - It would not surprise me at all if Oka is suddenly blown to tiny bits (suit running of power from Nuri's continuous invisible attack, and he wasn't even aware of that) just as he prepares to land the finishing blow.

    Personally im still not convinced those attacks are psychic, like no offense but assumptions in gantz have always proved dangerous

    ^Yes, i believe i posted something to that effect a while back - rather than being a psychic attack, its another "faster than the human eye can see" kind of movements we see so often these days, but everyone ignored it and kept on saying "psychic, psychic" so i stopped bothering anymore... o.o"
    That said, i am offended... lol
    Actually, the reason why we use assumptions so much, is that until the next chapter comes out, that's the only thing we have to work on, so pointing out that assumptions are dangerous in gantz... doesn't do much for any discussion on one hand, and is just a re-statement of what everyone knows - Personally, i take that into consideration every time i read a post...

    ^ I don't think the theory about Nuri's invisible attack being a high-speed attack was completely discarded, as far as I recall there were more people who also thought that.
    Personally, I'm inclined to think it's a psychic attack due to what happens to old man Suzuki.
    If it was only a faster than the eye can see attack, his limbs would be destroyed, not twisted, but that's my reasoning and it's no less conjecture than all the other thoughts on the issue.

    I'm dying for the raw to come out. Why, oh, why, must we wait. It'd be so wonderful if human improvements were already advanced enough for Gantz to be released worldwide within a day, without recurring to the internet...

    You mean if we actually had a Gantz like thingie to teleport stuff around the world instantly?
    That said, i really don't think the twisted/destroyed thing is a point in favor or against either theories. It might be fast enough to twist an arm without us seeing, ya know?
