    Uh, no. I don't like to be the kinda douchebag that just goes places to advert his shit. You really wanna see it or something you can send me a pm or something.

    Hoi Hoi won't unplug Gantz. Oh no. He'll put his mouth on the actual physical man and next thing you know Hoi Hoi chest-burster Alien-spawn will burst out and be panda-like but able to control the Gantz ball.

    I don't speak any language except English and even that sometimes alludes me.

    I don't see the purpose behind a ball transformation. Next thing you know he'll turn into a giant death laser or the actual, muthafuckin', Death Star! He'll be powered by bullshit, but that's not any different from how he is now.

    The never ending chapter. I wonder if he'll have another form. This kind of reminds me of Inuyasha, they keep cutting up Naruko, but he keeps coming back. After this form he'll probably have another enormous form that'll attack the remaining gantzers who lost their powers. This may end up like the Budda saga.

    The transformation happened pretty much for the same reason oka walked away i think - that was the most random thing "that no one else could anticipate" that oku could think of... I mean, if I had started a thread before 272 on the topic of "nuri's next form" how close could anyone have gotten to this one? Same for oka - i mean go through every post we've made here - did anyone come even close to posting "He just walks away."?

    ^Touché.

    @ Y0ungsir: Fortunately, Oku Hiroya is not Rumiko Takashi. Four volumes of Nurarihyon fight is not equal to 55 of Naraku's fight. He's just died on chapter 552, by the way.

    It doesn't necessarily hold them down, but they weren't exactly moving as soon as they were flattened. That still gives you vital seconds to pump them full exploding nanomachines with either an X-gun or X-shotguns. It turns out that those aliens were more susceptible to the explosive force of the basic Gantz weaponry and more resilient to the compressive force of the H-gun. In other words their bodies couldn't be crushed but they still explode from the inside and can still be sliced and diced. Conversely that Oni Alien that Inaba was banging was more resilient to the X-gun and required repeated shots before he was splattered. So if two guys kept those aliens occupied with their H-guns, another man could have blown their heads off. The H-guns would effectively compensate for the weakness of the X-gun. But those idiots were too retarded to know that.


    But seriously with Nurarihyon, if pieces of him aren't in the general vicinity then (say like if they were sent via Y-gun), would he be able to reform properly? Dammit Kato, remember how you dispatched that big guy!

    It seems like part of the tragedy of these fights is how easily they could have been won. For instance with the Kannon Statue Alien, if someone had just taken that single pendant, then it wouldn't be able to regenerate. They could proceed to disarm it of its laser and its vase of acid. The sniper man could have taken the pendant out from a distance, if only he had some way of knowing. It seems that Kurono is one of the few people who actually learned this from his experience in the Tanaka and the Kappe missions.

    ^You're ignoring the fact that back when he was being held by Nerdo, Nuri for some reason didn't instantaneously regenerate. That was the only time that ever happened. Just remember how it was when George and Kuwabara tried cutting him. He reformed himself right then and there. In these latest chapters, his ability to reform himself is quite faster, therefore it'd be useless even if they cut him to pieces.

    And about bad luck and no brains, well, we all know that. The what ifs are so nice but at the same time so useless.

    Cool

    @Dingo:Good stuff - one of the most articulate posts I have read in a very long time too - Good thinking there - it is surprising why no member of any gantz team has yet to "combine" any weapon - if an enemy is fast, and can snake out of nets, and is generally resistent to both h-gun and y-gun, you basically use a barrage of x-gun/rifle shots to pin it down (two or three people, such that the explosion delay is not an issue), then use the H-gun to "hold" it long enough to bag a net/send with the y-gun.
    That was precisely the kind of epic teamwork I was hoping for, but Katou decided to be a noob, and now we have to pick up marbles all over the place...
    @Cali: My personal opinion was that Nuri was just mucking around then, patiently waiting for the others to clear out the small fry so he could have his fun with the stronger people...
    Off:A post you made on the issue of Kei Kishimoto in the gantz faq thread comes to mind for some reason or the other

    ^ Well, I never said I don't post lots of whatifs and useless stuff myself
    (=

    Anyway... and now what? It seems most of the Tokyo team has their suits down, Nuri right now seems even harder to defeat than before - at least he had what seemed to be a "main body" before. Humankind strongest has just taken a break. And the little kid has blood on his mouth while the panda is nowhere to be seen - possibly playing hide and seek with the vampires.

    I have to hope Oku isn't just sitting there chapter by chapter going "They'll never think of this" because next thing you know Cherry will get a piece of Nuri inside him turn cannibalistic and eat the rest of Nuri. From there he will use Nuri's regenerative abilities to keep himself from becoming like Sakata and begin to murder all the people of Japan and gorge upon the flesh til his now fat ass is the size of Tetsuo at the end of Akira and every Gantz team in the world descends upon him, but he'll just devour them one by one/en mass. The vampires finding this to be hurtful more then helpful will join with the Gantzers and soon so will the aliens until it's like Independence Day only instead of the aliens being the threat it'll just be a giant psychic and then one day Cherry will fart and who comes flying out his ass? Kurono! Of course. The massive gas will destroy and radiate the final remnants of Japan, but Kurono will poke him with a pin and the energy will all expel itself from the single hole and Cherry will be launched into space and with neither him nor Nuri being aliens they will be unable to survive and the series ends with Kurono becoming the hokage.

    Wait, that can't happen now because I just thought it up. Oh well.

    He might not have regenerated because he was testing them. Nuri seems to be big on observing like when he fought Oka. When Nerdo was running around Nuri knew he was in no danger and he simply wanted to see what happened next and see if he was being taken to someone stronger. Maybe?

    Edit: I didn't see Shin's mucking around comment, but I'm of a similar sentiment.
