    Default Character Discussion: Izumi

    Izumi was very good at the game of Gantz so I wonder why he had to die outside of the game, and no one thought to revive him back...

    Anyway I made this thread so us who frequent the Gantz forums can discuss this complex character and most likly his reaction to the current events going on in the Gantz world.

    YOu should think about the time line. Izumi died, and Kurono got attacked that same day. The team tried to help him, but he got killed and the vamps got in the room. Then there was the Nuri mission and immediately after it was the rome mission.
    A few days after before they could do another mission and score points to revive someone, katastrophe hit and the aliens arrived.
    There was simply no chance to get him back, unless Katou would've revived him instead of Kurono.
    And I'm not sure anyone would've brought him back. Kurono wouldn't have asked someone to do it, like he did with Nishi. He didn't like Nishi, but believed he could give them information. But he pretty much hates Izumi. He killed Tae after all.
    From the rest of the team, nobody really knew Izumi. They knew he was strong, but in no way a team player. And if Cherry told the others that it was Izumi that killed them all, or the others already knew, they wouldn't bring him back.

    Enough reasons?

    He's actually one of my favorite characters, I never liked how they finished him off.
    The whole vampire storyline seems virtually pointless now, it never went anywhere, the incredibly powerful host character was never really explained or explored in depth, and now they've seem to have been written out of the story entirely.

    Yeah all that may inhibit his chances of being revived but I mean if the tokyo team really thought about it, he is argubaly the strongest gantzer in their team and him and Kurono partnered up is completely invincible, I mean I don't understand why the storyline thought to kill him off but give him such a significant role... Mass murdering to get the key characters in the storyline, being a most wanted target by a secret society, Gantz contacted him personally after he left the game... Also this guy primarily uses a sword whats more badass than that... He died because of trying to protect his girlfriend who's most likly dead now... I mean I believe he should be written back in the story along with the vampires..

    Who knows, perhaps the Vamps will play a bigger role in the future...

    I sure hope so. You can't just throw out such characters.

    Izumi was badass. The sweet way he cut that train car.
    I would not say he was evil or bad, he just could not care less about people around him, untill his death moment.

    Anyway, now that those people have hacked Gantz balls, i think someone could revive strong char.
    This could be a possibility to go to former Tokyo team. Like: Kurono notes something about Izumi. Some random strong comrade says "Izumi got back into the game?" "yeah" "Well we better bring that skilled player back!" ... or something along these lines.
    That's the theory anyway.

    As a bit of a writer myself, what I'd do with the ending is have that amount of Gantz balls together in one place react with one another and sort of glitch, bringing back every player who's ever played at once
