    umm... good point. Is HS' sword special then? I seem to remember he had no problem dealing with the sadist trio (i think he got one...) I havent reread gantz in a long time, so i might be off there.

    HS got one of the sadists alright, slashing through his back while the dumb guy was focused on Chigusa.

    Now, for his sword being special, that's something to consider, if we compare the results of that other vampire attacking Izumi (broken sword) and HS against Katou (cold hold the sword with his hand without being cut, but the sword didn't broke or anything). In any case, the youkai's sword, as well as the Ami-kiri's claws were able to cut through fully working suits, so I guess the vampires aren't worth that much point-wise... guess we'l have an estimate after the scoring.

    Plus it was an excuse so Oku could show off the damage from the H-gun.

    Its as simple as some enemy's have the ability to slash through Gantz suits. Others don't. The bird Yokai that Kuwabara eventually killed had the ability to slash through suits. This is confirmed in the last Omake at the end of the last volume of Gantz.

    ^ That's pretty much what I said ¬¬

    Though the wondering about difference in quality of vampire swords - earlier vampire sword breaking while trying to slash through suit versus sword being useless only - is almost interesting and a different case.

    Tet has been very active lately

    Anyway, something that's been on my mind for a while - from flesh transfiguration(can't remember the chapter number) and the chibi mission we know that the gantz suit is actually a reactive muscle mass.
    Conjecture: it reacts to thoughts and feelings, so technically, if you have steeled yourself against receiving a blow in the back, it should have tightened up and afford better protection than if you weren't expecting it...
    Any thoughts on the subject?

    ^ Indeed, we are yet to see someone being hit by a cutting tool while using the suit enhanced enhanced strength/resistance. Aside from Oku's goatee compulsion, that could be a good explanation for the broken katana that time againt the other vampire.
