    I've just suddenly realized what you guys mean by energy balls... the tiny ones near Oka's palm in the first frame, right?
    To this moment, I think those are not coming out of Oka's palm, instead, it'd be coming in; I think the energy gathers there and then it's released creating the initial hole and the successive energy blasts;desintegration. A customized hadouken. ^^

    @ Bellybuttonsex: See? I haven't checked wikipedia yet, but judging only from stuff people already posted here some time or another saying "wikipedia says so", I already hate that article with a burning passion (ha-ha). If you're really into editing things there, you could try and correct possible misconceptions and not adding to the sum of speculation-only things, unless, of course, you clearly state it's speculation and/or popular-nicknamed things and bla. (I like using "bla" every now and then, it has a good sound)

    umm... wait... One thought just occured to me - what if it was just one big sphere? (pretty much like the H-Gun is a pillar). The sparks look cool, but it just might be for visual effect... lol, ok, a more sensible explanation as to how the sparks fit this line of reasoning - when you look at them well, they all seem to be at the "surface" of a sphere. Of course, it may just an optical illusion created by the sparks expanding outwards and the odd angle from which we see the blast happening, but someone (read: me) might claim the exact opposite (an optical illusion created by the sparks being at the surface of a sphere, bla, bla, bla...).

    If we compare that scene with the other one I posted ( Gantz 271 page 05 | One Manga ), we see it's not just an expansion of the initial hole, other holes appear, so combining the two images gets me the impression the energy s administered in a certain point and from there on it spreads throughout the body (now it really seems like the x-gun/rifle...) while at the same time giving off beautiful sparkles to delight the hunter, appeasing his violent impulses ^^
    That said, the double page in which Nuri's remains are shown has some energy rays and some sparkles too, apparently coming out of the place Nuri was suposed to be.
    Gantz 271 page 06-07 | One Manga
    I would circle it using my amazing mspaint skills, but it's so much more pratical to use onemanga images.
    And where exactly does this get us? I tell you, no clue, for it seems quite a contradictory pattern.

    At times like this, you should read my sig and laugh your ass off for a while...

    Perhaps off-screen Oka just shot it a whole bunch of times?

    ^ I've thought about that too.
    I'm pretty certain at least on the second frame of the image Popo posted, Oka's using both of his palms to attack (contrary to the first frame in which as Shin said he appears do be like that due to a possible reckoil), but the second frame of page 05 makes me think the numerous explosions are just an effect of the first explosion/hole/shot/whatever normally and on page 11 it was something huge and showy because it'd be twice the energy-bursting thing.
    Oh, I almost forgot the main point; Oka isn't aiming at the places that are seen being "holed" at the second frame on page 5, which adds to the mutiple explosions being a consequence of that single shot.

    Now that I think about it, that circular pattern could be due to a Nuri forcefield in that one pic I posted.

    So the blast bounces of the shield, creating the pretty light effects instead of going through and blowing Nuri from within?
