    Actually, it does.

    Remember the Oni aliens? or the yokai of the Osaka mission? They look nothing like aliens.

    What it doesn't fit is this whole alien invasion scenario, the hollywood movies the invaders culture is never shown for example...

    Those were demons doing the hiding in plain sight thing.Its easier to believe those beings who live amongts humans looking and acting human but these are aliens from another star or whatever. They are an alien civilization thats basically the same as human except they're bigger and have better tech. Look at their clothes man, thats the kinda thing you'd see on a kiddy cartoon or something.
    With these eyes my vengeance..SHALL BE COMPLETE!!!!

    now, are you saying that just because they are alien they shoudn't have any form of civilization?, thats a bit racist, you know? ^^

    I'm loving the parallel civilization premise so far, it has an undertone that makes you think about our own civilization and how similar we are to the aliens. There are things that humanity does that isn't too far from that human food assembly line. Except this time, it is us who are being caged and slaughtered like animals.

    I would expect nothing less from this series.

    Well that was quite obvious.
    That is why i think the conquerors are so similar to human. But it does not really make me 'think' about how we hunt and stuff, shit is way different, and besides - survival of the fittest, nothing else...
    That's the theory anyway.

    ^ Because these aliens are sentient, intelligent, and use science and technology. It would make sense that an alien race that was in desperate need of a food supply and had the capabilities to attack and completely overwhelm an entire planet, and then harvest the population as livestock. If you were to ask me this is how I would see they're plan going.

    First: Display overwhelming force, let those being invaded know that they have no hope of standing against their new oppressors. Destroy armies and massacre largely populated areas like cities.

    Second: Begin harvesting the amount of the population needed as a food source.

    Third: Don't kill everyone on Earth, keep them destabilized with no form of government or order, limit them to camp like areas where they can survive and reproduce but have no hope or means to retaliate.

    That seems to be what the aliens are doing, they might find the Gantzers to be too great a threat and end up killing everyone on earth after they've harvested enough humans...

    But yeah, anyways my point is that their not simply aliens thrown onto Earth, they're an intelligent society who made the choice to attack Earth because it was a good source of food, it makes sense that if they have the ablility to attack and destroy an entire planet than they would be similar to a modern Earth society in a lot of regards.

    I don't know. It has to be easier to simply grow food, instead of travelling across the galaxy to get to it. If you're right these aliens are not very economical. Talk about wasting resources.

    Gotta love these Soylent Green stories. Surely it'll be something more complex than just 'They invade earth to steal people for food.' Hell, that was the plot of 'Bad Taste.'

    And Tae is STILL running around naked!
