    The last few chapters showed that this manga is all about Kurono again after his resurrection.
    Katou never was a replacement for him ^^

    Hey, I said that. I'm not one these newfags, I'm following this manga since three years.

    Beside that, it was pretty lame that Gantz didn't gave Katou the points for the three minor aliens he killed before Nuri.

    I still don't get the trigger for the countdown. Alright, you all have your theory with the moonlanding but I'm not 100% behind that, sure. More important what was the trigger behind the countdown and what is the consequence when it's finished.
    Did they activate somekind of weapon or computer when the countdown started or is it some men made countdown? And what will exactly happen when the countdown is finished - will there be a huge gate popping up with thousands of aliens coming out or a nuclear attack suddenly starting? What was the trigger for all this?

    Despite that, the technology by Gantz can't be made up by humans. I don't think that they build but store them in this factory. Imagine if some country would have the technology of Gantz and it's weapons and can build them in mass production.
    So I doubt that they really understand the technology of Gantz but the modality of deployment. Gantz only works if aliens are in it's near and can't be misused by humans (except they take weapons with them, but this option is protected with the head bomb).

    And we should consider that there were already aliens on the planet living in disguise (Onion, Tanaka, Buddha, Oni) and some who just suddenly appeared out of nowhere (Dino, Ring, Nuris).
    As we saw in the dino mission, some aliens did actuallly fight against each other. So maybe this is somekind of conquest by different alien species who are in competition with each other.
    So maybe the earth will be a new battle zone of an alien conflict.

    We will find out sooner or later when the invasion is there.

    Oku always surprised us in the past. There was not one prediction in the past that became true.

    Why not a huge surprise this time?

    We'll see some idiot aliens like this :
    "Hey, this is our territory now!"
    Humans :
    "Fuck off! We nuke you!"

    Probably gantz existence. What other goal could it have, except aiming for the end of the counter. The first hint was, that Gantz told Izumi to go on massacre, because the last teams were so weak. It realy looks like all these missions had only a training purpose.

    Basicaly you're asking the same thing again.

    Now an interesting Question (if it wasn't brought up before):

    Can gantz predict the future or was it made in the future, considering it's only a warehouse, where the balls are stored and not a factory? Nobody would set up a counter randomly. Whoever produced it, is aware of that certain day, the counter ends. Now about gantz predicting the future itself: How high are the chances to recruit Kaze/Sakata/Sakurei/Izumi, the most outstanding members, especialy on one day. I doubt, that he told Izumi to go on rampage just for the sake. It wouldn't profit from it, if Izumi only killed weak people in the end.

    He became predictable currently.

    ^^The "Nuri's still alive" prediction lived on for a looong time.

    ^I often wonder about the Gantz knowing the future issue. I think I had a few other points toward that direction besides Izumi's massacre, one of them being the vampires getting recruited I guess. Since I can't really remember what logic was suposed to back it up, I won't bring it on now.

    While we're at it, I still endorse the Gantz as "alien/superior beings entertainment" theory, because to think it's in favor of humankind to me seems wrong (the massacre also points to that), or it could be an extreme party, "whatever it's killed is not worth living", maybe... but I'm not saying Gantz is "the bad guy", only that whatever it does, it doesn't care either for aliens nor humans, or at least it only cares for them because of the fun they provide.

    We never said the moon landing was the trigger, the numbers just suggests that the Timer was counting down since around that time because that would be when it would be maxed out. That suggests that either Gantz started operating around that time or what made Gantz set the plans in motion sometime around or before then. People might assume the moonlanding has some significance in that it is largely associated with space travel and the entities that the Hunters kill are dubbed "aliens". But even the Hunters aren't sure what is the origin of the so called aliens. It could be that Oku is trying to throw our theories off with a reference to 2001 Space Odyssey.

    Despite that, the technology by Gantz can't be made up by humans.
    It definitely doesn't seem like something that can be made today. But there can be humans who developed the technology despite it's absence from Modern Marvels.

    Gantz could be something like the Maxwell's Demon Thought Experiment. A being who knows the position of any given particle at any given time. Through superior calculations he could accomplish such things as completely resurrecting the dead from saved memory. The human(oid) figure in the Orb could be the operator, perhaps through some process he was turned into an artificial version of an autistic savant like that man in The Cube. Only instead of sacrificing social and expressive processing, his brain can no longer regulate vital functions necessitating life support. In return he becomes...at the very least semi-omniscient.

    While we're at it, I still endorse the Gantz as "alien/superior beings entertainment" theory, because to think it's in favor of humankind to me seems wrong (the massacre also points to that), or it could be an extreme party, "whatever it's killed is not worth living", maybe... but I'm not saying Gantz is "the bad guy", only that whatever it does, it doesn't care either for aliens nor humans, or at least it only cares for them because of the fun they provide.
    As I said before either Gantz is a "mysterious ways" kind of guardian or he's the ultimate example of an apathetic gamer.

    Haven't really kept up with everything that's been said lately, but i think everyone is overlooking something important. The suits, the weapons and the black ball may be man-made, but the guy inside, well i don't think he is, and i think everyone will agree that the guy is by far the most important component. Even though it can't really be told from the picture, i don't think there is anyone inside these balls, so that would make of them useless, no matter how grand the production scale is.
