    In the manga it was mentioned several times (or maybe just once, but I'm pretty sure) that vampires are as strong as normal gantzers in a suit, so no need to make theories.

    @Ikari, and Regen - I didn't mention the hidden weapon/sword storage either. Like the super regen, it kind of goes w/o saying that these are super human, but when you think about it... they don't get all that much from being vamps - Storage+Regen+Heightened/enhanced senses, vs. weak to sunlight, lightbulbs, torches (one hit kill man, scary shit)+ need to feed on blood regularly. That 3 pluses and 2 minuses, and once you factor in that the a human on the good side on the genetic pool can match them w.r.t. enhanced senses, well that's 2+ for 2-. Factor in the suit, and native gantz weaponry on the human side, and they've got two minuses, period. I'm kinda guessing that's why they prioritized killing gantzers so much - strictly speaking, a gantzer is like a vampire with superior weaponry, damage resistance the ability to cloak (i'm not even mentioning the bike from return hell, or the H- "smile you're a pancake" Gun, or the gOKA suit/gundam). Even if there was no such thing as a vampire hunt before, killing the gantzers before they turn on vampires makes perfect sense - Imagine the pre-nuri Osaka Team being loosed on the vampires - a thousand of them, wouldn't have been enough. Oka could probably kill a few dozen HS with his gOKA suit, without breaking a sweat.
    That being said, has anyone given a thought to this boss not being worth a 100 points? Something like 70-80 points... no trick to beating him, just pound him till his dead, except that well... he can take tremendous amounts of punishment.

    damn, inaba killed that big fucking thing by himself, that was really bad to die this way... oku should let at least two or three more chapters being badass or regular gantz fighting before his death =/

    You can describe the entire Gantz series with that line.

    I almost felt sorry for Inaba until I remembered how much of a douche he had been and also remembered that I wanted him dead when he tried to hit on Reika a few chapters back.

    Unfortunately, his death wasn't satisfying for an Inaba hater like me. Maybe it was because it was too heroic for a spineless douche like him and too out of character. He died a manly death so geh i don't know what I think now.

    Now that he showed a little bit of his fighting will, I'm actually pissed that Inaba died like this... He had a lot of deadly wounds, so I guess he wouldn't have survived either...
    But, he made a lot of points...

    Salvador Dali: Premonition of Civil War, is a spanish artwork, and it's a picture not a statute... So, can pictures become alive here too? We saw alot of classic and modern art mixed together here...

    Ever since vol 14 it had been hinted David would appear as an alien, so stop bickering.

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).
    About the whole "host samurai" thing, I believe the explanation is simpler: a host is also the term used for a guy who does. We've seen how the "pretty looking" vampires get girls. I've always assumed that was their main job in order to acquire their preys easily. It doesn't really have anything to do with homossexuality. As for the samurai bit, that should be obvious, with the sword and all, as you pointed.
    A host is the male equivalent to a hostess http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hostess_(disambiguation) (see "bargirl").

    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.
    That's what I said earlier; normal guns wouldn't really work, much less their swords, the h-gun is the main weapon for this hunt, since there are several giant statues, including the boss, and the x weapons most likely only work well on the smaller statues. Katou's ygun seemed to work fine too... so much for the statues braking free of them...

    Izumi could take on 3/4 of the vampire "big four" with a powered down suit. He would have slashed through HS too. I expect Kurono to do nothing less. AND using the locking system of the guns... the vampires really only get to kill gantzers either on luck, strategy (using baits) or stupidity of the gantzers.
    But Shin had already mention it anyway.

In other words, oku's vampires don't acquire any extra super powers through age, which is a far cry from is normally the western opinion of how vampires evolve with age. In other words, HS isn't substantially all that much better than a human being with excellent physique, reflexes, and a lot of experience (e.g. Izumi). Experience, HS acquired along the way, so in other words, just being a vampire doesn't make you a good gantzer, or a good killer for that matter. It makes you better than the average human being who would do those things, but it doesn't put you among the best de facto.
    Yup, yup.

    Inaba's final chapter was actually better than I first thought. Contrary to what I imagined, he tried to kill those statues to save Suzuki. Good enough for me.

    that would mean there'll be a kurono alien as well (the tae painting) :P, which I higly doubt.

    EDIT: I mean again, coz a kurona alien kinda happened before in the oni mission :L.

    Inaba killed so many... makes you think what the hell the other gantzers have been doing. Doesn't look like he died though. His legs got squished, but everything else looks intact. If that's the last boss and they kill right away, he can still make it. Too bad that won't happen since it'll make the mission too short, and we all know that each mission needs to take a year or two to finish.

    They finally showed HS, but all he does is running away. And is it me or does Kaze's feet disappear or just lazy drawing?

    I'm still leaning towards the fake/training mission theory. Countdown to katastrophe would be pointless if they just killed off 90% of the world's gantzers hours before it happens.
