I don't think Nerdo killed/will kill Nuri.
I do think that the scene is proving that Tokyo gantzers can't revive Osaka ones. That's it. And that sucks... because, while overpowered, I think Oka was the coolest looking character in the manga (even without the suit). That guy just looked awesome. I miss him more than I'd miss HS, and I don't think he's coming back.
Of course Oka (Chad/Milkshake Man) won't come back... He was an ass to the Osaka Team.
@teiohx: That's what I was thinking... It's definitely a shame. Oka was one of the coolest characters yet...
Although, maybe Nerdo will try to revive Oka if he succeeds in reviving Anzu. However, there's only a slight chance for that - most likely, he'll just leave the game if he manages to clear again. There's also a tiny possibility that Kuwabara had some sense knocked into him with this insanely difficult mission and revives Oka, knowing that he's a dead man if they have to fight another 100-pointer.
But given that this is Gantz... Oka's chances of returning aren't that big.
^^Oka could come back, only in an all-star roster battle that would require the best Gantzers ever known...
As most said, I'm also glad the mission finally ended. Oku seemed lost during this arc because of all the new rules he added, also because he killed Izumi and Kurano which destroyed most part of leadership. I think Reika clearly shown that she can't do it properly enough so everyone can survive, that's how Katou came up to do his thing like he used to and take the lead.
In the end, it doesn't matter who really killed Nuri (R.I.P), weither is it HS or Katou doesn't mean shit... the underrated protagonist found the true way to kill this true son of a *itch.
Aside that, much propz on the spoilers, I guess I was right again when I said Nerdo would try to resurrect Anzu because of Katou's heroism.
Corrected ! Kishimoto shouldn't be brought back. I can't stand her character and don't care about fanservice. "You don't have sex with your pets" Do I have to quote more =(?'Katou-accidentally-reviving-Kishimoto-by-asking-Gantz-to-revive-'Kei-chan'-and-Oku-being a-dick-as-usual-theory?'
^Awesome man - Our new hero is a confirmed alien-rapist. How cool is that?
Beats the shit out of the run of the mill "I'll protect her, and the world!" weaklings out there.
Kuwabara is more like"I'll rape her, and if that saves the world, just be happy i didn't do you, instead."
^He would help the team If he kills aliens with a supersuit or another 100 point weapon no one else is able to do, not? When did I say, that he would turn into some crap wannabe hero, who protects the weak?
Actually, Kuwabara might not be the only one left. Knob-yan or whatever (the four time clearer) was also showing "faint" signs of life. Of the three mid-tier Osaka'ans, George is the only one that is for sure dead. It just blows that Oka died. He was likely incredibly smart and skilled BUT a loner. The thing is this... Nuri was the "teamwork alien". You couldn't kill him by being awesome solo.
Based on his fighting style, Izumi ironically would have probably died in this mission had he not already been killed by HS.
Oka's milkshake scene is still probably my favorite pictures in all of Gantz. Love the facial expression. Bring'em back Nerdo!
