^ Then you would be killing yourself :p
Anyways, as Ive already posted, you cant retort to me posting now. Its funny so many people hate Inaba when before the Tae hunt he seemed okay, if a bit of a useless poser. Its because he took Izumi's side where the hate stems from.
I missed the comment before but as for what Feanor said about Inaba down with the assaulting, I think he wasnt, as when he was with his little gang and they were talking about Reika, he wasnt down with it. Though he did state that his reason was that it was criminal, his reaction didnt seem like that was the only reason (otherwise he'd say something about getting caught, which would make it the only reason).
But wouldn't you say something like "hell no" or "no because it's wrong" normally. Saying "no it's not legal" tells me that this is his main reason for not doing it.
Or he was too scared that they would be mad at him if he declined the offer in other words.
Either way, it's a good reason for not liking him. As proven right by all his other actions since then.
Kurono was scared too in the beginning and didn't help Kei when she was about to get raped but at least he changed.
I don't see change in Inaba and frankly I wouldn't buy it if Oku started to change his character now because he wants Reika or because she's in danger. Every hunt is dangerous and his interest in her has been there for a long time. It didn't change him in the past, so there is no reason to do it now.
In fact I don't even think he loves her. He wants her because he thinks that as a designer he fits her better than Kurono. And the fact that she wants Kurono is probably also a reason why Inaba wants her. But I can't see hints in the manga that Inaba has real, genuine feelings for her.
^Inaba is just a selfish bastard, just even more so than Kurono at first, maybe.
That doesn't mean he should strive for redemption. If we're talking about morally wrong, Izumi killed about 300 people and people usually like him. Of course, there's the matter of being a good gantzer while Inaba's a pussy, but that can change if he just uses his head and follow Nishi's example, for instance (ok, going invisible when enemies can "see invisible" doesn't help, but it's a bit better than just getting at them with "look at me I'm a target" approach).
I won't debate the "love" thing, though, since I don't think we'd reach an easy agreement and I think we should see how Inaba'll act in this mission to know if he falls into the "guy in love" cathegory according to Oku's paradigms and not ours.
I'll vote for Reika, why? because i feel she's becoming dangerous and also suffers an apparent mental break becuz of that kurono (geez kurono why are u so loyal to ur GF? , Reika is more hot and compatible with u, well we cant blame him he's in love >.<), what a pity girl (>.<) . The only way to break free from kurono is to love someone, if not?... just die in a honorable fight.
ps: Why do i get a feeling she's plotting to kill kurono or do some horrible things (School days?? lol) hmmmm.... maybe its just my imagination. :P lol
^Well, dunno, maybe you've had too much to drink. (=
Surely, if Reika intends to create her own personal Kurono, so that he won't hook up with Tae because there's alread one with her, I don't think she'll kill him. Also, the basic, she loves him...
As for compatibility, Reika and Kurono both belong to the room. Tae and Kurono are both average people. That's a very simple way of seeing it, but one can find compatibility for both cases as long as they look for it.
meh, I don't hate him for having sided with Izumi (like, I like Izumi as a character and wouls like him to come back, less psycho, if possible xD). Problem is, he's trying to act all cool "I AM TEH TEAM LEADER" when he's actually a damn coward. And after the oni mission he seemed like he wanted to improve himself ("I'm nearly as useless as a kid and a panda"), but in the next mission... well, he didn't do much, just like most of the team xD but didn't really look any improved to me

Prediction for Inaba's death: He'll try and redeem himself for his poor acting in every mission so far, manage to get maybe a boss or midboss, get all happy and day "look at me! I did it!" and then he'll be killed by some other thing soon after.
Inaba has been barely escaping death for a while now. He should have died in front of that fire Oni...survived. He should have died while doing the shape shifter Oni...survived. He should have died when Nuri made his limbs explode...survived. He should have died while walking across the street to the grocery store...survived. This is becoming a really bad joke.
Who has survived more "should be dead" moments that Inaba??? Kei & Katou don't count because their awesome, and don't count people who actually have even slight skill like Izumi, Nishi, Reika, Kaze, Suzuki, the psychics, Hoi Hoi, Takeshi, Tae, the black guys the vamps killed, the old lady & kid from the Tanaka alien mission...and anyone else who was better than him. At this point I JUST WANT HIM DEAD!!! Trying to kick game to Reika was the last straw. Soon Kei's eyes will be opened and he'll think to himself "WTF was I thinking!!!" and we can't have a lame bastard like Inaba in the way.
But I believe the first to die in the next mission will be whatever newbs Gantz brings in. Actually, were there any newbs on the last mission? All the Osaka Gantzers had suits on which leads me to believe that they all had been in at least one mission before. Think Gantz may be through with recruiting?
^There were 4 n00bs for the Tokyo Team last mission, not counting Host Samurai and Kill Bill. There were also a ton of new guys for the Osaka Team, including the old people, the kid, Nerdo and his friend and some other people.
HS and KB don't really count as newbs. They just hitched a ride so to speak. Ok, I count 3 n00bs aside from HS & KB. I'm sure their all dead now lol.
