    It's pretty much his breadwinner. It would be surprising NOT to see him go all out. Well, gantz is great BECAUSE he goes all out, but well... to be perfectly honest, at this point I would still read gantz even if the graphical level went down substantially... but that would just be oku abusing his fans... I honestly hope we never get to see happen to gantz.

    That said, Oku doesn't use the graphical softwares per se. His IT assistants do that for him (He has 3 of them, and one drawing assistant, I think). He draws the story boards and the characters, but as far as 3d positioning and modelling is concerned, he gets his assistants to do it for him. The assistants are also responsible for converting real pics into useable background material.

    Considering how much input his assistants have, it's kind of unfair to call it Oku's Manga...

    I think every mangaka today has some massive team behind him. And Oku can sure use it.
    I wouldn't be surprised if about 10-15 people would work for him to bring those brilliant graphics out every second week. The efforts for those fighting scenes, especially the last ones with Nuri, are enormous. There's only Berserk which can be compared in quality, but that manga is mainly hand-drawn. Oku sure is known for making new advances in manga drawing. Remember that his "moving tits style" was known to be copied by lots of other mangakas.

    And of course it's still Oku's story.

    Oh well, nowadays when we say "mangaka" it usually encompasses the "mangaka, and his team". I was just highlighting how big the assistant input is in the case of gantz. That said, I don't think it's 15 assistants - It was four something back when he made an interview, one or two years ago, so it can't have grown THAT much, even in that short time...

    Umm, we really should be taking the discussion to the next chapter thread, or general manga discussion. This has little to nothing to do with 281...

    that link said he was using "shade" -- i never heard or used that program -- the one they were using in the webpage looked like either blender or cinema 4d. i would guess cinema 4d b.c. the character looked like the standard IK character with just scaled arms.

    it could also be 3ds max...

    my bets on c4d. easiest modeler outta the lot.

    shade 3d made by smithmicro they do poser... makes a little bit of sense... know nothing of the program tho. there so many 3d programs tho.

    Half of the article is over a year old, while the other half (step-by-step) was written based on info that was out a month ago or so... i suppose oku probably updated his softwares since then.

    I think it's cinema 4D.
    I remember someone else using that program showing us some pics.

    Gun re-model, opinions?

    Try google sketchup first -- its free and is a good stepping stone into 3d graphics. later if you want more control and be able to do more complex renderings i.e. this was done in c4d along with 3ds max and another program called vue 6 (i did it one day when i was bored)

    I don't know....I just felt that this chapter shows the development of Kurono. At first, he will show off his suit. Remember how he got caught by some of the bullies and they requested that he paid them money? He just used his suit power to crush the boss's hand and walked off smugged with his new found power. In this situation, he didn't even react when the guy started to bad mouth him. He only reacted when the guy verbally attacked Tae, and even then, he did not show off his power by punching out the guy. He took the hit and walked away with Tae. It showed Kurono was no long the brash boy he once was but a more calm and not willing to show off kind of guy.

    Remember, he no longer have to hide the fact he was a gantz guy, since Gantz practically showed the whole world who the Gantzers were. If Kurono wanted to whip out his suit and started to show off or beat the living daylight out of any guys that bullied him, he could. But he didn't.

    Opps...wrong post at the wrong thread. Should have posted on Chapter 682-683
