    I don't think the name 'Gantz' matters at all. Someone that used to belong to a previous Tokyo Team just gave it it's nickname and Nishi continued to use it. That's all. The Osakans never called it Gantz.

    But I think this is a pretty fascinating development. I also think that the numbers the fat woman speaks are some sort of alien signal and that everything the guy and his organisation have done is just a game to them. They have no real clue what's going on either.

    Gantz is a german surname. I don't think it's a nickname. I think the hunters just never bother..asking nicely what it's name is. Nishi and Kurono have asked to be sent out first, Kurono has asked to see the thumbnails of humans in Gantz's memory, Nishi asked to see the timer to Katastophe, so it's not like they can't ask for a name. Nobody has really taken the time to get to know Gantz. No wonder he's an sarcastic asshole, he's fucking lonely.

    Gantz is the nickname of the ball only in the Tokio team.

    This. I think the german guy doesn't really have a clue about the reason those numbers were said by his daughter and simply thinks it was good luck or some random thing, so he and friends make bets with the missions.

    But it'd be pretty lame if that was all, it's only the german dude doesn't know any more than that

    Its strange for this to happen in any country at random, especially ones that are taking place in this company's racket. Maybe they just draw out of a hat?

    I love how the company owner mysteriously figures out that his daughter is secretly a super genius by translating her out-of-the-blue numbers. Its not random at all.
    Maybe.

    My guess: The old man is lying. If there was no reason to hide, then what was the point of making everything invisible? Heck, the vamps would've killed him already if it were all true and supposedly out in the open.

    Oh he can't be lying! Hes the trustworthy old man who profits money from killing dead people (redundant...)! Now if only he had candy...

    You're right though. Maybe its because he knows the end of the world is coming soon so it doesn't matter anymore to him?

    More new questions than answers.

    The first: where the hell they found the tecnology/godlike power to made gantz? (meant the blackball and all the show too)
    And who is the humanoid inside the ball?
    And another 30/40 questions.

    Whatever, Contact, Minority Report and especially Battlestar Galactica didn't inspired Oku imo.
    The themes expressed are classics of the sci-fi.
    Only the Italian novel could been a source of inspiration and only for the "trasfert" aspect.

    Ps: Is Sebastian an alien?
