Nishi is BadAss!
He can Win This Game 4 Sure!
Smart, Stealth and More Badass. xD
Nishi killing spree at school was my personal most enjoyable moment in Gantz.
Citing Spiderman: "With great power comes great responsibility" that in normal life would have little sense: if a great power goes randomly to a sociopat like Nishi the result is hell, he is the perfect antihero, he is a guy that is not phisically strong, probably bullied since the childhood that at a certain point of his life (of his death) took a great power.
In a certain sense Oku with Nishi is exploring some very dark aspects of the school system and the teen age: you know that in the last years there were a lot of massacres in schools and worldwide perpetrated by students that were in some way marginalized people, in Gantz we have seen a story about it, and not only with Nishi but also with Cherry and know why it could happen. If you think about it, the Nishi massacre is garnished with the Gantz suit and gun, but he could have done the same breaking in the schoolroom with an Uzi.
What is also very interesting is that we can see the aftermath with the killer still alive, and in Nishi's case, now he has two H-Guns.
Not that I think that Nishi is good, but sure I found him the more interesting Gantzer (apart Reika's boobs...) , without any moral sense and so very unpredictable while the others can be named stereotypes.
2 face person in Gantz, and always like to be chicken
Like a chicken? Well he never backs down and stays true to what he says. Hardly a chicken if you take on a Japanese SWAT team or try and take down a hundred pointer.

Kurono has survived without his suit, took down many bosses, and got 100 points.
I refer him more as an interesting character who is capable of killing anything or anyone, making him merciless and effective.
He makes effective use of stealth, range, and situation. Making up for the lack of battle powers.
I agree in pure physical prowess Kurono is king but Nishi is more of a "weapons specialist"/"covert operations" kind of guy with his proficiency with the suit and weapons. Plus he's just about the only one of the team who remains calm headed and able to make reasonable deductions while under extreme pressure and in a short amount of time.
