    Why's that? Why doesn't Gantz use living people then? If you look at it like that Gantz doesn't have any reason to use dead people aswell. They just do it, and the aliens could too.
    Gantz....

    You've not got the point. There is no reasons to take dead people, ressurect them and put them in a game when you've simply the superior technology for doing what you want, like simply take living people and put them in the game with the same exact rules. And there are only theories on the nature of aliens, nothing as been shown. I don't know if you understand what I mean, if it's a game settled by a superior alien race, why should them have the pain to take gantzers from just dead people ? Simply take them alive. So this is why I said that the theory can't stand, it's only my opinion BTW.

    i dunno why dead people.it was just one suggestion of me, could be a rule or a low of the alien race not to take living people or just 4 sadism to get people who died to suffer more could give varios reasons.

    Or they are much more eager and motivated because they know the sensation of dying once and this can get them a second life.

    That's probably a better motivation than taking living people and telling them they have to do it or they will be killed by Gantz.

    I mean telling someone you'll kill him is hard on that person. But most people have no idea how bad it'll be. Dying is just the end of there life. But having been through it once you know exactly how it is.

    Something I don't get; where did this whole "aliens playing with humans" idea come from?

    I mean, if it were actually humans who made gantz, then the "choosing dead people" problem who sort of make sense: ethically, they're already dead, so giving them a second chance at life, even horrible though it may be, isn't all that bad no?

    if gantz really is a manmade weapon designed to fight aliens then i dont think ethics matters much as to whether its "ammo" is alive or dead. however, based off the fact that people are taken at the moment of death versus say after they are buried (or cremated) would make me think its done on purpose or perhaps out of necessity.

    the point of gantz, or at the very least the point of them being dead, is to show to them and to the reader the value of life, as well as to show earth as a place worth protecting

    no, no, no.

    Your guys premise is off. Gantz's purpose since the beginning has changed. It doesn't matter that they're dead anymore because things got f'ed along the way. Gantz chooses dead people because it wanted to handle the alien problem inconspicuously. Now things are simply out of control, and Gantz doesn't have the functions to handle whatever alien overload is happening.

    So to make a theory:
    The government or whoever (we don't know yet) controls Gantz to fight off aliens. The aliens arn't evil and humans arn't evil. Oku's point is that it's all fucked up. His medium is the gantz game, which shows our errors, yet gives us a chance for hope.
