    It would be interesting if they walked out of the room and the katastrophe already started. Something tells me this arc isn't over.

    Why bother going to Phase II if they were to just do 2-3 additional missions? Seems kind of silly.

    hmm yes you have a good point
    but considering the downhill developments of gantz lately, the producers might have told oku to end it quickly.

    those producers have quite the saying what happens to the story of a manga.

    death note got crappy just because the producers wanted it to end the way they wanted.

    maybe the selling numbers of gantz got worse within the last months, and then miracously Nishi tells them about a counter no one has ever heard of and the manga ends.

    When Izumi mentions Nishi website to Kurono, he says how it talks about the end of the world, etc. This was all planned years ago. I forget the details, but someone posted a link to that page before hand I think, to show it was planned out and foretold.

    And after the scene with Nishi shooting up his school, he really kept the story fresh and interesting. That was awesome!

    I don't know where Ferozban got the idea about Death Note. Now I'm not a huge fan of Death Note but I do have #13 and in it the author discusses at length planning story arcs and its made very clear that Death Note ended the way the author wanted it to. From the start of the Higuchi arc he said he was nervous because he KNEW that L would be dead and he KNEW that Light was always going to lose because "Light was the bad guy". Death Note actually dragged on LONGER then it should have. Like the completely pointless rivalry of Misa and Light's new sex toy uh Tak-I don't care.

    Same with Gantz in Japan they will just CANCEL a manga not give them the Oscar "Wrap it up" music. There are plenty of manga HERE like Zombie Powder and Gun Blaze West as proof of that. Gantz is coming to an end because Oku wants it to and its gonna end HOW he wants it to because Gantz isn't so popular that the fanbase is going to affect it like DBZ was. Now as for why would it be "Phase 2 and end so quick" it's not ending quickly. Pase 1 was 20 manga exactly(I have the Japanese print of 1 and 20 so I could have both of Kurono's deaths) and we're already at 27 I think with enough chapters gathered to make another manga or maybe even two so really we're almost half way to the length of Phase 1 with plenty more to wrap up. So really 20+ manga in general is a good length. I don't think it's gone downhill as I still wait for every chapter anxiously and when I go back and read it all te way through and every chapter is immediate with no wait then it all meshes very well and I enjoy it every time. C'mon it's not like Bleach in which in ONE chapter ALL that happened was two people drew their swords.

    ^ Fair points. I got Death Note #13 too so I agree about what you said there. Agreed also that Misa and Takada(I think thats it...) was forgettable as was the clumsy handling of Mello (also mentioned briefly in DN 13), who was one of my fave characters in the Near arc.

    Some manga are actually allowed to close up when cancelled. I dont know the details but there are many manga that have what could be called "abrupt apocalyptic endings". I know that Gantz's Katastrophe was foreshadowed and planned way back to when Kurono researched Nishi's site for hunting tips, but admittedly after the debacle of the Nuri arc, things are going fast and rather forgettable in my eyes. Gantz may finish soon because of cancellation but is allowed to get to at least the start of the Katastrophe. Yes, we're now 7 volumes into this main arc, but seeing how fast this last Italy arc went by compared to even the Onion hunt and I really think something's up.

    Final point; correct its not like Bleach and Dragon Ball,where I remember Goku fighting Jackie Chun/Master Roshi went on for nearly 2 volumes and he wasnt even a main baddy.

    After the long Nuri arc, why not doing a short arc?

    Everyone thought: how to top nuri?
    How to top nuri arcs difficulty in general?

    The warlike scenario was predicted, and oku ended it before we began to get used to it.

    Something is up, but it's something in the manga story.

    Why would Oku now begin with gantz Malfunctions?
    Why would he even bring in Reika's Kurono clone story?

    The only thing which could be happened because oku getting pressure was Inaba's death, because he wasted much potential.

    But was Inaba the only one Dying without dong much in Gantz?

    Stalker girl died when she finally began to be useful and to dare fighting.
    K, she was not arround as long as Inaba, but still.

    As i said, i certainly doubt Gantz is going to end anytime soon.

    There are too many things which open up plot possibilities which happened between nuri and david hunts.

    Reika's kurono clone,
    Kishimoto meeting Katou
    The gantz factory

    Why would Oku even bother with sidestories like old man offering kaze and takeshi a home?

    If oku knew gantz ended soon, he would let those things down and concentrate on a last giant arc, and not let us see those things and waste the last hunt.

    Why have that, you ask.

    Because its interesting.

    And I don't think he killed Inaba because of fan pressure. If he listened to his fans, he'd bring back Sei, since having a sexy girl kicking the crap out of aliens with martial arts, and sexing up anyone who asks, is something most would probably like to see.

    Inaba served his purpose in various bits. He wasn't just there, saying and doing absolutely nothing. He was a total jerk, many people hated him, but they were probably meant to.

    The hero looks better if you have a coward around to compare him too.

    I rather think, Inaba's purpose was to show not everyone can just come arround and kick ass because he has a 'strong will', like in shounen.

    Inaba fought, and Inaba died, like Kurono and Katou also did.

    mb Oku wanted to show being a coward can lead to success in Gantz, or possibly Inaba just served to have a fitting death for old man.

    But hey, maybe Inaba's story isn't over yet.

    And, Who, in their right mind would care to revive him?
    He turned Soopah Saiyajin off screen for everyone, killed a small army of super aliens(at least 15), a Sub Boss and got shredded in the process...
    He then turns up looking like shit and gets squished like a coackroach - for all others involved he probaly got raped and torn apart by the aliens, all while barfing and begging for mercy...

    Everyone probaly thought:
    ""YEAH Biatch! serves you right for being such a self-centered pussy!!
    GO BIGASSALIEN GO GO GO!!"
