    ^^I would. Just blasting things up with an X-rifle isn't kurono's style. I'm sure he'd have thought up of something extra. For example, retreating into the subway, or doing something else that would give him some kind of strategic advantage. That's the difference between Kurono and Izumi. Izumi has got mad skillz, nobody ever denied that. We are just arguing that there might have been a more efficient way that, Izumi being Izumi, just couldn't be bothered coming up with.

    Gantz Fan - "ZOMFG JoO P4wn3d th3M 4ll with jUs+ joor mAdz Skillz!!!"
    Izumi - "Of course joo stoopid noobs. I R T3h L337 h4XxOrZ!"

    Oh well... you have to love t3h fanboys... Don't worry, being a fanboy myself, I can understand your feelings .

    @Twilit, on phoenix: bleh, Suzaku, Japan. Si'Morg, Persia. Even Russia has a phoenix equivalent (Tsar, or Zar something). People who've played SMT probably remember Garuda and Benu, from India and Egypt, both of which give china a run for its money as far as the title "oldest civilisation" is concerned. Bla Bla Bla. See, i can be a smartass too ;-P.

    him for several seconds, eventho the damage output was nothing an almost invulnerable Nuri should worry about.The surprise attacks from the tokyo team had only little effect, but should be more damaging. He got blasted to pieces and sliced by HS downwards, yet it had no real effect on him, he was still shoting his lazer eyes like nothing happened. CRAZIE MEN!1 Especialy katous h-gun shot was bs. Nuri saw how katou was pointing the gun at him, so he should expect to get hit by a shot sooner or later. He was finished by no surprise attack in the end.

    People asume, that Nuri could sense Nishi, afterall Nuri caused Nishis arm to explode/implode after he turned invinsible again.

    He was liquified to a pool of blood. Realy, if that's no weak condition....

    The only thing I consider remotely tactical from Izumi is his whirlwind attack.
    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...

    Izumy just has skill, that's all.
    Imagine you're such skilled swordsman, you could take on 10 alone not sweating much. Add the amplifying suit. You are CONFIDENT about your win against vamps. so the Q is, why bother with tactics?
    That's what Izumy was thinking like, probably.
    On the other hand, Kei was not strategic more that Izumi, He just got an idea and exercised it, some of which were quite hot-headed.
    Katou was thinkng, planning etc. that's why moar people dislike him - to spectate thinking IS boring. The manga anyways isn't about tactics, and the char developement is not either. This would be another story with premission briefings, maps, location study and SWAT-alike teamwork.
    That's the theory anyway.

    I think Gantz is all about character development so far. Killing aliens after you're dead; how creative. There might be a plot now considering Nishi just revealed the doomsday clock.

    There was alwasy a plot, just no answers xD

    Yeah, the clock gets to the end while the Gantzers keep on killin aliens as usual, the world blows up.

    THE END.

    And the world was then deafened by the enraged howls of Gantz fans worldwide. XD


    Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return.
    To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.

    I ment "char developement is not about tactics" not "manga is not about char dev."

    This is something i though of, too. But in my vision they were killing aliens already out of Gantz, just to survive.
    That's the theory anyway.

    This is quite sad of me, but I totalled the timer to full 9s across the board and totalled how long Gantz would have been counting down.

    Basically, if the timer started with all 9s across and counted down, it would take just over 31 years to count down. If Gantz is currently set in August 2001 based on Nishi's site, the Gantz manual and dialogue, then the countdown would have started in December 1969. Or 196X for Gantz manual purists.

    Just a fun little point Im throwing out there for people to discuss.
