    The "four issues in a row" thing had already been announced since chapter 285, if I remember correctly.

    So, yup, in theory we're getting another chapter next week, but the other is supposed to come out only in January. (I believe I posted the scheduled dates in one the chapter threads of old)

    EDIT: Yup, just found the original post about it, from Heiji-sama @ Ritual:
    D'après la preview du Young Jump #52, à partir du prochain numero (#01-02), il y aura des chapitres de Gantz dans 4 numeros d'affilés. C'est à dire qu'on retrouvera un chapitre dans le Young Jump #01-02 (04 Décembre), #03 (18 Décembre), #04-05 (25 Décembre) & #06 (08 Janvier).
    So that's pretty much it.

He might however develop more of a sadistic side, and use the x-gun or y-gun to disable the alien oponents and then have a few punches at them, maybe. Just another unlikely guess.
    Exactly. It could change him because it's not his usual style. If it gives him more pleasure to beat someone to death than just shoting something that could lead to a change.
    Like I said I doubt that it would affect his Gantz behavior, but it's possible.
    If it gives him more pleaure to kill bare handed he might try the same with some aliens.
    I'd welcome that. I never liked his stealth method even though it's not a bad tactic. In my opinion he acts more superior than he really is. He's little more than a sadistic brat getting the thrills by killing little cats.
    But if he adopts a direct and physical approach and really becomes a real sadist and sociopath I could come to like him.

    That's true. We all know that kids can be pretty cruel, bullying people over nothing. Might be intersting to see how Nishi became the kid he is today.
    I think he always had this attitude and then got bullied for it which only made him into an even bigger ass.
    Or it might be that he snapped after a girl confessed to him. I mean now we know what kind of girls he attracts *gg* (I'm sorry).

    I consider this training for Nishi's upcoming missions. Can't rely on stealth forever.
    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...

    ^^I'm hoping Oku will show us, at last, the non-good guy: Izumi, even though being the responsible for the Shinjuku massacre, showed a bit of humanity by saving his girlfriend from HS. I think Nishi won't be as merciful towards his fan, mainly because we'd be getting too much of "love means something" in Gantz, and I guess a certain dose of the opposite would be good for a change.

    That'd also make it interesting that Nishi is slightly more sociable towards the team, even though he's way more twisted than Izumi.

    @ etufo: True, but after the Tanaka fiasco I guess Nishi learned the lesson (assuming his memory set goes up to before him getting his eyes f* up). After all, we could say he only got fucked at the Nurarihyion mission because, well, it was the Nurarihyon... (and Katou needed to get the points so we'd get Kurono anyway).
    Plus, Nishi did get at least one other alien beside the Tengu (72 points - Nishi got 75).

    Actually Cali, I think the fat girl will stop Nishi by reasoning with him. That or she'll be the only survivor from Nishi's massacre.

    ^I know, that's why I think Nishi's gonna kill her: Oku's been showing us too much of the "mercy" deal. Even HS saved Chiaki... so I hope Nishi will be the complete bad leaf. But then again, if Oku wants to show us compassion yet again... well, so be it.

    I think that Nishi won't have to worry about Gantz because since the Gantzers can be seen in public the rules are off.
    I don't think that Gantz worrys about being revealed a few days before catastrophe.

    And I hope that the fat girl will sit on the side, like Tae in the Freezer Alien arc, while Nishi kills everyone and then see the fat girl and kill her as well so that the reader can see that he isn't like Kei and that he won't change no matter what.

    ^"the rules are off" you say, but aren't you forgetting there's, for instance, a new area rule, which shrinks as time passes during a mission? We do not know whether the "secrecy policy" still applies or not. The only one confronted with the fact of being recorded was the freed Kurono, which no longer had any attachment to Gantz, so we can't know, not yet, not untill Oku decides to clarify that up.

    But yes, I also agree Gantz shouldn't have to worry about that especially right now.

    As for Nishi killing the girl serving to point he's not Kurono, basically that's what I'm expecting too.

    I don't think their actions are justified, but one classmate did have a point when he said that it's only a matter of time before Nishi starts killing people. Nishi has killed someone already, and this might accelerate his sadistic nature towards human beings rather than getting rid of it completely.
