If he comes back he's gonna be really pissed. Which would make a good plot. So that's why I voted yes.
In order to 'acknowledge' the 'irony' I would have to learn two new words today.
...And I'm not going to do that.
umm this thread was something of a surprise for me - I mean sakata is a minor gantz character - I am somewhat impressed by the number of people rooting for him - this may seem a bit off-topic, but while we are it, what about the other dying guys - Baldy, Nishi, and Inaba? Nishi, i'd like to have back - sneaky, somewhat psychotic, and a bad loser to boot - this guy is the perfect anti-hero... Baldy, well, I have mixed feelings - what does he do besides whinning, rooting for Kurono, and driving him around in the dino arc (no that much of a big loss)... Inaba... umm the general consensus seems to be that Inaba must die, and stay dead.
Sakata won't be back unless there is some incredible, impending disaster coming that causes them to need the best possible Gantzers to save the world.
He's served his purpose in that he has mentored Sakurai and taught him how to use his powers effectively. After the speech he gave, no one will revive him.
But, i'm still for the take that he might be revived and piss off. Like what would happen if he become piss off with cherry ?
i probably would root for sniper to be back. Just so he could add another type of dimension to the offence of the tokyo team.
If we had Kurono/Izumi/Sniper/Sei/Sakata back, that would give a lot of dimension to the Tokyo Team's offence... but too much Dimension I think.
The Osaka Arc was already this long without them being part of it beginning to end - Just imagine waiting three years for an arc end - also, I don't think Oku likes long-ass arcs any more than we do, so in the light of this, if one of the above five had to come back... okay make it two of the above had to come back... would you choose Sakata among the two?
if that is list that we can choose from, i would choose kurono and izumi. Kurono, because he kick major ass. Izumi, because i feel that he is a pretty reliable melee fighter for the tokyo team, and very kick ass as well. But not as kick ass as kurono! lolx..
Out of the Tokyo team, the only ones with points right now are:
Whilst if one of them does get 100 points could be asked by Cherry to revive Sakata, I think as Kato didnt really know him he'd prefer to revive Kurono over the two. Host Samurai would probably go for option 1 (to not be classed as enemy by the aliens) or 2 (ftw).
