Why did Izumi first leave? Plot hole or Theories
Random Question: Why did Izumi first leave?
(Spoilers I guess)
I got in a debate with my friend the other day trying to brain storm logical reasons why Izumi would ever leave the Gantz game in the first place given his personality.
Izumi's been long dead so unless that far fetched 'everyone comes back' theory is true his significance to the plot is probably done, but somethings still bugging me.
Izumi used to be in the game pre-Kurono's time, but got 100 points one day and decided to leave.
Does anyone else find this extremely out of character for him?
Izumi seems to love killing. Before being slaughter by the vampires he picked to have a better weapon next round. He's extremely aggressive and Gantz seems like a 'wonderful' outlet for him to express his true nature.
My friend came up with two explanations and I only manged to revoke one.
Its yet another character motivation plot hole from Oku!
(I'd like to give him more credit then that.*sweatdrop*)
Idea #B (That I revoked but if you think you can put it back into play with evidence feel free)
Izumi had a different personality before setting himself free.
My argument against this uses two factors.
1. His personality before getting into Gantz the second time was brutal and had the capacity to kill even without his memories of the game. He wanted back in and seeked it out.
2. Nishi seems to like Izumi. He's got a happy/surprised look on his face upon noticing him in the room and before the vampire fight on the train had a smile on his face that vanished the moment Izumi said he couldn't remember anything about him.
(I doubt he'd take orders but,)
He also suggests to the group Izumi be the group leader and that he was a leader to the group pre-Kurono time.
(another wait then why'd he quit u.u moment)
All this persuades me to believe that Izumi before leaving was a friend or at least someone he liked or respected by Nishi.
Nishi defiantly doesn't care for bleeding kind heart's like Kato or appreciate people who do not see the world like him.
This inclines me to believe Izumi must have behaved in a similar way he did in the manga even before Kurono's time.
So why would he ever decided to leave it?
I'd love theories from you guys!
It wouldn't be as fun if it was just a character motivation hole. >.<
