    Its Oku's perfect plan for mass murder, killing off so many people with suicide by getting rid of the 1st phases main character for good!
    Maybe.

Even being killed outside, his file still existis in the database, as shown in later access by Kurono.
    Now, as for Kurono, that's not the same case because he wasn't just "outside a mission", he was freed. But personally, I take it Katou vowing to revive him, even though he couldn't possibly know if Kurono's on the list, as the author's way of showing that's something feasible.
    And now, isn't this or shouldn't this be on the faq thread? Not that many people will read it anyway (argh!)
    Well, I would question just how "free" Kurono was. Izumi was supposedly free too yet Gantz had no problem finding him and delivering the mini-gantz ball to give him a way back into the game. I agree with you. I highly doubt he can't be revived.

    I've been thinking about the author's reason for giving Kuwabara, Knob, and other Osaka members an outside chance of surviving, why he didn't simply kill them off. I wonder if, the geographical difference, is in fact going to make it impossible for Katou to revive Anzu and that we simply won't know the fate of the Osaka team after this mission. I could see Katou trying to find anzu's kid, or someone from team Osaka... maybe finding Kuwabara or Nerdo. I'm also intrigued by whether or not we'll find out who her kid's father is or if it is even relevant.

    But to be honest, I am beginning to hope HS doesn't get the points, because when I think of him in the Gantz room, with the three choices in front of him, I simply -don't care- which one he picks. Neither of them excite me at all. Unfortunately, I kind of know what Katou would go for too, so I'm curious to see whether or not something will happen to make the scoring session interesting.

    I still think HS is dead though.

    But Izumi's situation was different, even though I do agree Gantz "freedom" isn't really all that.
    Gantz contacted Izumi and offered him a chance to go back, but he still had to die to do so, and it was his choice to accept Gantz offer.
    Now, that's one way to see it, but... did Izumi remember or decided to search for Gantz info, like Nishi's site on his own and that lead to Gantz contacting him, or did Gantz manipulate his memories (just for the heck of it) and just waited until Izumi played into his hands, by being obsessed with a thrilling new life to the point of comitting mass murder?
    In any case, whether by Gantz influence or not, it was up to Izumi to kill or get himself killed to go back to the room.

    Now, as for HS, I'd find interesting if he left, because of the possibilities that'd leave for the female vampire to interact with the team, but I'd rather have him pick number 2, even though he wouldn't need to use the gun himself, just to bring one into the team's arsenal.

    As for Katou, reviving Anzu, if it's possible and getting to live with her and see how that plays, or reviving Kishimoto by mistake (due to her being also Kei). In no case I want Kurono back now, and I am almost as fond of him as Katou. It's just that I find the idea of reaching the goal through some hardships and something more "epic" than just the first mission after he's gone, even though it was a very peculiar 5 volumes mission with an almost invincible boss... I think it'd need more "feeling" to it.

    And now that you mention it, I can see Nerdo coming into contact with the team later on.

    As for HS' death scenario, I guess that could be nice too, even though I also like the mf.

    I don't think Gantz screwed up by not altering the memories completely. I don't think Gantz wants any Gantzer to truly forget what they've done. Probably for more manipulation.

    In Gantz's perspective, wouldn't it be more satisfying to see people like Izumi who once picked freedom only to think of going back 24/7? Almost as if freedom wasn't even a choice to begin with.
    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...

    Katou taking out HS AND Nuri with one shot. If you guys won't admit he's badass when he does that than you never will.

    Katou is a badass. I love how in school he hangs with the geeks, but, even there, he's strong enough to beat down just about anyone.

    I went back and read some of this stuff in Japanese again (I usually read it in English at onemanga since its the most convenient and I only have a fourth of the series in hard copy)... And found more to add to the "HS is going to die" theory bin. For some odd reason, Oku seemed to find it important to foreshadow the time it takes for the H-gun to fire. When George are Knob meet the bird-like alien that kills a bunch of low-level Osaka gantzers and the alien chick Kuwabara was raping, George is challenged to kill the thing within one minute. With 1 second to go, he pulls the trigger and scorches the thing. Knob then tells him that he was a second late. If accurate, that means the delay time on the H-gun is a mere 2 seconds. Considering that in the second to last page, the top frame features the katakana シュツ (didn't notice this before) which directly sounds out the English "shoots".... then we have a frame (1 second) of the gun lighting up... then another frame of Nuri's eyes lighting up in response (1 second)... the next moment should be the blast (though, it could also be guessed that the guns charge-up and Nuri's eye light up occur at the exact same time). HS has 1 second or less to not be nuked and likely doesn't even realize he's been shot at due to the delay and a lack of visible projectile.

    There's a lot of foreshadowing in this arc that validates this outcome... which, knowing Oku, is maybe the one reason it won't happen this way. Normally, though, he tends to hint at what's to come.

    @Popo
    It'll probably be the most ironic death(s) ever in Gantz.

    Am I the only one who thinks Nuri is still alive?

    I doubt blasting it into pieces and slicing in half will do the job. It survived being liquefied and that also was a surprise attack by Nishi.

    So why would this surprise attack be any different?

    because we hope this is his final form.
