    I'm a little sad at this revelation, though if the old man has no idea about the bigger picture, why is there a Katastrophe counter on the Gantz? Is Katastrophe really the end of the world? I'm guessing the counter has finished now (surely its been over one week now in the timeline since Nishi showed it off) and the real Catastrophe is the old man's company cannot bet on the hunts now, dunno why to be fair, but it would be catastrophic to him at least, and we can see the Gantz ball probably was invented like 31 years ago like discussed before.

    The Seijin, possibly created by the scholars also for the purposes of the hunts (which suggests they release the Seijin on purpose to be slaughtered...).

    The real plot-hole is the vampire race that had been around for 200 years then attacked recently by a Gantz team (quite possibly in Izumi's first run). This seems to go with Nishi's statement on his web page of aliens arriving and then the teams sent out to get them (which would rely on a sensor of sorts in the Gantz ball in a certain area effect - a diagram of such a radius over Tokyo can be seen in the Gantz manual which supports this).
    It then seems that a drip-fed real-alien invasion was known of by the old man and company and the vampire race are a group of humans that fell victim to an alien virus 200 years ago, from a UFO crash like in that once Dr Who episode. Thus the old man realised there would be a fair supply of Seijin "targets" arriving on Earth. The only thing is, what kind of jerk translates his daughters code of a way to defend the planet from invasion then thinks, screw it, lets make it a reality show we can bet on, thus saving my ailing company first and then the planet if these people dont screw up...

    Well, Gantz Chapter 9 was named Eichmann Test.

    Anyway, I'll be disappointed if this turns out to be true - that Gantz is a TV show for the rich & powerful after all. Team Battle Royale with aliens and vampires? I was hoping for something else.

    Maybe Katastrophe means that there's a new cast, because when teams get too strong, ppl lose interest?

    Although....if that means the alliens were manmade...i cannot really believe then the aliens would destroy rome or tokyo or osaka, because i guess the goverment should know bout those bets, if that many famous people are involved.

    If every mission was invisible, then, no problem at all, i would believe it was for entertaining and end, but why should there be those aliens with a charakter, and why should there be vampires?

    I also thought about players who control the aliens, possibly, but i think it's unprobable.

    I would not think this as final purpose of gantz, entertaining, is unprobable, because that's what we could exspect of oku.

    Or would oku let us just have a final badass humans vs aliens battle like in any other manga?

    Though, i doubt that is the last thing we'll see, because the fat girl won't spill out those numbers just by accident.

    There has to be someone behind all that

    the fact that someone is watching all the hunts is reason enough to say that it is why the missions at the begining were so lame, in terms of alien's number and lethality, compared with more recent hunts

    if nowadays mission had thousands of onion aliens it would be a big mission... packed with crap =D

    what I found interesting about this little explanation of the plot is that Kurono had to be one of the world's best (at least) becuase they gave him a solo mission, just to see what he was made of, not even Izumi was sent alone (or it doesn't look like at least), and Oka... well, to be honest, I'm guessing that their team had some more info on what Gantz is, and they were able join Gantz and fight just 'cause they were bored just watching

    the guy in the ball? I don't know, but he seems to be not quite human, maybe he is a clone meant to spend its lifetime in the ball being used as some sort of battery/computer/backup system... sort of the human breeding fields shown in the Matrix

    my imagination is flying around this way :P

    I should fly as well (lits a fine joint )

    I'm surprised no one mentioned that fat chick that's blurting out random numbers possesses the LARGEST BREASTS ever seen in the entire Gantz manga. And she was topless to boot.


    WTF?

    ^
    I believe my mind went into self-defence mode and denied such a thing to protect myself from trauma.
    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...

    Your concept of "3 weeks of consecutive chapters" is pretty strange, I'd say
