    ^You really don't have to go outside of gantz for an Inaba comparison - It's fairly similar to how Sei died. She kicked a fair bit of ass, then once it looked she had the edge, she turned to look at kurono, "not bad, eh kurono?", let her guard down, and was brutally pawned.
    That being said, I seriously doubt Inaba will be back - This is about as great as he could get, he coming back to his old whiny self would cheapen his death (not that this isn't a brutally cheap way to go - I mean, last chapter, oku announces the appearance of a boss, and this chapter it appears... on top of inaba) , and Oku's final line has an air of finality about it. That being said, Kurono AND Katou looking back at him indicates that the present gantz team has two leaders now (both of which were shocked wordless by inaba's achievements... except maybe Katou - he was probably like... so this is how I look with one less limb."
    @Blue: It hasn't been happening all that much lately, Cali and me discussing - he's been far more active than me. Did you know that once upon a time, i had more posts than him?

    ^off-topic: That's just because I was internetless in the jungle for three months, Shin-san. (=

    Katou must've thought, for a brief moment "A disciple!", and the it ended.

    I'm interested in knowing Inaba's thoughts on the old man's death.

    I've started to grow on Reika by the way. Though I still would prefer if she were to suceed in getting her own Kurono rather than interrupting my beautiful Tae-Kurono lovey-dovey.

    Again on old man: He was the de-facto partner of Kurono when Katou was offline and he was cool, very cool.
    Then, without Kurono he had not really a part in the manga, and now that Katou is back there was no place for a threesome with Kurono... Again, I'm sad that Oku wasted Baldy but Baldy had already planned to die, for example when he used his 100 points to resurrect someone (I think Katou... Gotta watch that chapter again). Not that he wanted to die but he was already prepared while Inaba acted like an opportunist till the very end when he went berserk...

    And about something else...

    Kurono, Katou, Cherry and Nishi died twice
    The rest of the team died once
    The Vampires NEVER died (Vampirez rulez)

    Actually HS is probably the strongest Gantzer IMHO, not because he never died but because he owned strong aliens without the suit and only with the sword.

    ^Yes, Suzuki ressurected Katou.

    Also, Izumi died thrice, and Sakata died twice too, although since they're still dead...

    As for HS being the strongest gantzer, I don't know. He wasn't the strongest character to begin with (hadn't Izumi girlfriend interefered, HS would be cut in two too). Also, hadn't HS used Akira's head as bait, Kurono might have gotten both him and KB WITHOUT a suit, so I don't agree with that. Certainly, he kicks ass, and with a suit, he maybe would be the strongest (Kaze aside), but for now...

    I honestly don't see any Gantzer in the hunt with the stones or intelligence to defeat this boss. Maybe HS will confuse him with an extensive knowledge of art history then Nishi will pwn him with the H-gun. I can't help shake the feeling Oku is pwning us.

    He owned them because he was faster than them.

    They didn't had any other special ability than their suit piercing swords...and speed is a very important factor in a sword fight.

    Due to being a vampire he has more stamina, more skills and is faster than any Gantz player.

    I'm 100% sure that Kurono with a suit and a Gun or a sword could take him...

    ^
    Nah, shooting HS is like trying to shoot Superman; pointless because he's too fast. Izumi's swordsmanship > Kurono's swordsmanship, so I think Izumi is the only one that can take HS 1v1.
    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 not so sure about the vampire's omnipotence. What i mean by this is what do they extra just for "being" a vampire. Akira listed accelarated regeneration, good looks, solid physique and a good athletic sense, but all of that meant jack shit to kurono and izumi - Izumi was still kicking ass with half his suit gone (don't forget the vampire he killed with his suit gone bad), and Kurono without his suit. In other words, i'd say that being a vampire is like being the best a human being can be, at his prime. Which leads me to believe HS's skillz are largely a result of his vast experience and cool-headed thinking. I don't think oku has provided for vampires acquiring any extra super powers as they age - HS would almost definitely have used his if he had any vs Nuri, and the fact that he is now using an H-Gun indicates he does need to really on gantz weaponry when that kind of stopping power is called for (in other words, none of his powers grant him that kind of destructive ability). So yeah, HS has experience, and that's about it.

    So HS has top skills and experience. Remind my again what he's missing as a humanoid being? He grabbed the H-gun... that shows his weakness? How is he any weaker than Oka other than not having yet earned power house items?

    I'd say he's good to go as the best of the best. Oku will kill him though. Even if you have everything your still gonna die. The only variable that he can't control is perfect luck, which Inaba just ran out of.

    ^He grabbed the H-gun shows that the vampires, however old and experienced they are, vampires cannot flatten an area through sheer force of will. 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.
