    Why are we assuming HS is old? He could have been a samurai instructor with a military background before becoming a full-fledged vampire. Sounds ridiculous I know, but you should know what I mean. To me, he's like a "genius" vampire that Oku just made because he needed a badass character.
    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...

    Gantz Otaku mentions that the nickname gantz puts forward for hikawa would translate most accurately as a "profession" of the Tokugawa period (if not earlier) japan that involved little boys doing sexual favors to samurai (ok, more than favors, most of the time, it was getting down and dirty). Of course, it could either mean that he was a samurai (case in which the alusion would be exceptionally insulting), or a gigolo (case in which it would be a painful reminder of his past), or it could mean nothing (just making fun of the fact that he looks and acts all samurai-ish).
    Conjecturing on the first two, Hikawa could very well be 200years+. Of course, that's conjecture, but if i have decide between a theory that's sounds completely unlikely, and one that's conjectured on solid facts, i'd choose the latter. But yeah, it keeps things simple to say "he's a genius" and leave it at that butPersonally, i don't really like the "genius" explanation - "some kind of genius" is a four word write off for what potentially could be explained with some further analysis - Of course, that's not really the case here.
    So far, what we know of Hikawa.
    1. He's a top honcho in the vampire community (based on how much people he can call in, and the general treatment he gets from other vampires) .
    2. He doesn't talk much.
    3. He will not hesitate to kill his subordinates, or use them as cannon fodder - Playing fair isn't part of his vocabulary.
    4. He keeps chiaki around him, for some obscure reason or the other, and it is implied he cares for her more than he lets on.
    5. Gantz calls him HS.
    6. He can speak the "common language", whatever that is.
    7. His skills stand far above most other vampires.
    8. He has a never-ending cigarette.
    9. He's not above using gantz weaponry, even though he still says no to the suit.
    10. He doesn't seem to care much about killing aliens anymore than killing gantzers.

    Nothing there that conclusively indicates he's young, or old, i'll admit.Why I fall down on the old and experienced side of the fence is based on a little bit of conjecture, and personal preference.

    Man...why did have to die badass.
    I guess Rambo's law applied especially to inaba.

    No no no no ... No David No! Gantz has more "class" than that! ... Wait after that whole cliché Inaba thing ... O: damn Gantz is becoming "normal"/not the manga that breaks all conventional rules... Dear God Gantz is loosing its uniqueness!

    About the whole issue of HS being not so cool for using Gantz weapons now but still says no to the suit; I believe it is about what Shin said recently about HS having more experience (though come on, Shin - no-one in their prime has regen skills like Akira had).

    My basic point - I expect HS tried his vamp weapons on the statues, saw they didnt work and resorted to the discarded Hgun. It was a way of using what was around for survival over honour.

    When did he actually lose his arm, he still had his arm right after he finished the carnage.

    Default Inaba! :(

    Too damn cool this time for me not to comment. I'd been lazy to create a account but this time SO DAMN COOL!!! I think the author wants someone in the manga to have a realistic behaviour, and decided to create inaba to suit that job. COME OUT 1chapter per week! The suspense is killing me :/
