    Come on there cannot be a stronger alien then Nuri, it can shapeshift and recover from any damage.

    Is it possible that Nuri is one of those villains that the main characters fight against at the beginning and lose, then at the end they defeat the villain. Since I cannot imagine Nuri being defeated now

    That's why I am asking the question... can you actually think up the kind of attributes an alien that's actually stronger than Nuri would need to have?

    On second thought; Tae was also like 30 points (rite?), so I don't think the amount of points say anything about the strength.

    Yeah points are more related to how much Gantz wants the aliens dead.

    Now that you mention Saiyans that brings up the horrible idea of if Oku goes the DBZ route and makes all the characters we like weak and meaningless and focuses on less interesting but more powerful characters.

    If there are any aliens stronger than Nuri it could probably kill someone like Oka just by acknowledging his presence. I'd rather we see some strong but not super strong aliens in the future until the team gets a lot stronger. I'd like to see Katou, Nishi and HS each fight an alien on par with the Oni from last mission.

    Nuri is truthfully too overpowered in my opinion. I like to see characters struggle to fight an enemy, but this fight with Nuri is almost ridiculously hard, like the arcade machines where the people set them to extreme level so they can never be beat, but people keep on trying so the owner just keeps making money xD

    Well, that's my opinion about it anyway. I'm sure the Gantz team will figure out a way to beat it sooner or later, or they'll all die because he's just too overpowered and we'll get a crappy ending. Who knows?

    I just think he's too overpowered, or at least, too overpowered for the point in the series they put him in. Perhaps a few more missions and then maybe people would have been more prepared for something so powerful.

    Back on track with the points...

    If we think in video-game terms, each next level/mission is harder than the previous one and sometimes have more enemies, and also the enemies tend to give off more points after being defeated (Streets of Rage based analogy).

    recently, someone has come up with the idea of area boss, facing a 100 pointer being the last mission for a certain region, and I got to say that's a hell of a theory (EDIT: due credit for the author of the theory: Black Sheep), because if you think about it, the maximum possible amount of points come from the last boss, and you can't really get more invincible than Nuri (or at least we hope so)

    Would explain why the Tokyo team were sent to Osaka (if the Oni was Tokyo's last boss). A weird theory and Im being light footed around it, but it might happen.

    I'd make a claim that Gantz essentially was DBZ from the start, but I'm not sure I could elaborate properly. What makes it good has always been the characters, the ganterz could be awarded decimal points, thumbs up or thumbs down, monopoly money, or those little stars you got on grade school homework for all I care, it's a plot device.
    I guess that's stating the obvious, we do need something to talk about between chapters, so...

    OMG, the next alien is SINISTAR!?!?!?

    (Actually that's my favorite gantz theory so far, that this is all a game for gantz and that he's kind of like that gaseous cloud in that futurama episode where the nerd cloud collects actors from star trek to play death games with.)
