    For those of you who are slightly confused about the H-gun/X-rifle thing:

    Katou spots the H-gun lying around, but when he picks it up he decides that it is too heavy/cumbersome so he puts it back down. He still has his own X-rifle.

    Pretty good chapter for once. It's a shame that Oku wasted so much time getting here. I'm still Katou's #1 fan!

    Shani Andreas, you earn all my propz once again!

    Man this chapter was epic! Loved it! Oka's death (no spoilers intended) is lame imo because we haven't seen him enough of him, either for his knowledge or for the full extent of his fighting abilities.

    Katou is definitly frozen by fear, Nuri is so tall and fearsome it's nearly giving me the chills. We had a long 25 pages long chapter, I'm happy about it, two pages-spead...

    It's great to see that things will soon enough come to a conclusion and we finally hear the aliens "discussing" with the Gantzers for the "real" first time.

    Death to Nuri! Revive Kurono and Oka ftw! w00t!!! :P

    Guess without the Suit the H-gun is to heavy to handle...

    ^
    Katou's suit should still be working no?
    etufo: HS is most likely going to die sooner or later. Who will kill the cool character killer?

    Popo: well, obviously going by that logic, HS will have to kill himself...

    No it got clearly broken at 272:

    Gantz 272 page 26 | One Manga

    the only Suit still working if I remember clearly is Sakurai's.

    Edit: got powned by Shani_Andras btw thanks for the chapter and the spoiler man!!

    I don't think anyone is confused about that.
    If you meant, however, my message; check page 19, Katou's x-rifle is on the floor.
    And then, at page 25, the rifle's back at his hand.
    In casy there's any doubt that's Katou's x-rifle on the floor, check the double page just before it, there's no rifle to be seen near his feet.

    @ tekko: I highly doubt it. Even Anzu was able to wield the h-gun with only one hand. I'm still not sure why Katou used both hands and why he left it on the floor.

    So, am I the only who think those explosions might've been the work of Oka and the rest of his possible arsenal that we'll never get to see?

    @ etufo: No, Katou's suit was powered down by Nuri's marble attack.

    EDIT: Got speed-posted by Shani and Tekko ¬¬'

    Cali: Anzu was able to hold the gun because her Suit was still working , the translation on page 8 confirms it:

    Page 8:
    Katou: There it is.
    Whoa,
    this's heavy.
    Haah...
    SFX: Thunk


    I think the same, those explosions were the last fight of Oka and probably the rest of the Osaka team .

    ^ Oh, sorry, I had fogotten Katou's suit was down, even though I had said it on the same post ^^' my bad

    EDIT:Now, in for some theories I thought while almost sleeping in a car ride a while ago:

    1. Reviving is really useful: This is hypotethical, of course. Say all the members of the Osaka team die, and only Anzu remains alive and miraculous gets 100 points. And for some reason, Anzu has to remain in the game. Should she choose a marvelous h-gun from option 2? Yeah, that would raise her chances, but number 3 would be a sure power-up. She could bring back Oka, who had "lvl 7" gear. Of course, he died after the supersuit was busted, but say he had died when Nuri sliced him, he would come back with the suit. So yeah, Gantz thinking to relieve the shitty car ride.

    2. Wanting Anzu to remain alive: Anzu should be able to bring about more dimension to Katou's character. Do you guys think he'd fall for the girl this quickly? And back in the days he seemed to have a thing for Kishimoto too (I'm of the opinion their kiss wasn't just a sort of final mercy on Katou's part) Would Katou be able to deceive the girl after they return safely from the mission? He might, however, let her move in, because he promised, even though the promised most likely was just in order to get her away from him before Nuri's return.

    3. I forgot. ¬¬
