    ^ Sorry. I thought you were under the impression that it was a one-time thing.

    Someone probably mentioned this before in some forum or the other, but one of the reasons why the Tae mission did not end with the destruction of the film (chap. 183) is because in (chap. 177) Kurono tells Tae everything about Gantz. If gantz is willing to kill her for taking a picture (which she might not really know what it is about) then he surely will have her killed for having been told that by a gantzer she trusts.

    Oh yeah, sorry about not PMing you first Hadou, but with this, my post count is only 9 so i can't PM anyone yet (sucks to be a newb)...

    A friend of mine was reading Gantz for the first time and asked me a newb question.
    How come Nishi's suit goes bad after one hit, while Katou gets banged point blank by four Tanakas and only then his suit goes bad?
    Answer is Nishi was shot by one of the Yakuza before the mission started, so it's probably that.

    Again, this has probably been posted in one forum or the other, but considering there is nothing under the Tanaka alien arc, i thought it would be good to add.

    And again sorry Hadou, but my post count only becomes 10 with this, so I can't PM you before making this post. (Yar 10 posts, less newb now)

    He seemed to be hit more than once, his frequency change worked to begin with, but later messed up. His controller also seemed to get destroyed before his suit went bad.

    Reread the chapter, and I agree with you. He does seem to be hit more than once, even though the charging time of the mouth beam makes it possible for him to have dodged a lot of them.
    Anyway, it is definitely less damage than being continuously nuked at point blank range by four Tanakas simultaneously.
    About the Cloaking system, this does not happen in any other chapter, so I really can't confirm it, but as a general rule, getting into water has this habit of making cloaking systems malfunction in anime and movies.
    Which reminds me, I think a Gantz PS2 video game came out (there are ads in the subbed manga). Has anyone played it/know when whether an english version is coming out?
    That said the ad (don't remember the chapter no. even though i am confident it's post chibi-alien) explained some things, and the game probably explains a lot more about the mechanics of Gantz accessories/weapons. For example, I recall reading in the ad that the power of the sword drops with the power level of the suit, which is a cool thing to know, especially when Izumi kills a vampire even though his suit has gone bad - this means his winning is more due to his skill with the sword.

    For the ppl that care, I am still trying to read every single gantz thread out there, and not getting anywhere (sucks to be newb)

    Yeah those are some good points, I don't think I added them at the time mainly because at the time of making it Nishi wasn't exactly any type of focal point for anyone, until the oni arc when a wall of fury was raised at Kourouno reviving him(dont ask me why the hell that ahppened it just did) along with the denial of "IT'S NOT NISHI!!!" post a few made back then hence why that appeared here in the faqs and not the getting shot thing.


    Also note that water decreases mobility no matter what so if he could have easily avoided those hits easily while on land, its doubtful when in water. Even with the suit at full force there is still going to be enough resistance to decrease its effectiveness by half if you're submerged halfway. He was just caught with his pants down, when he accidentally stepped on that bird.

    Woa L337 H4XX0RZ Hadou. I didn't put that much thought into the water thing. By the way, a messenger friend asked me why i was using the L337 talk so often lately, so for all the people that don't understand the private joke, read Chap. 161Se on the Gantz dll list. You can't be getting your Gantz from stoptazmo and not read this.
    As for the people that go "wth, two 161?" when they look at the dll list, SE is basically a joke version of 161. Read both for best effect.

    You probably already know this (i am still in the process of finding out) but it's better to post every little thing up here than to see a post asking the same damn thing for the 100th time

    YES, I am STILL trying to read everything single Gantz thread out there

    As for being pathetic, I suppose it comes from not having any new Gantz to talk about... I feel like a Junkie... o.O

    I just came across this post while browsing, thought it deserved a place here.

    In this context it refers to a coherent part of the whole, a story arc would thus refer to a continuous number of chapters that resolves a number of plot points and can be seen as rather self contained.
    A less articulate/insulting way of saying this would be to say than an Arc, in the gantz context, refers to the chapters consisting one Hunt/Mission, starting with when the Gantz players are warped into the room, and when they are warped back for point counting. Exception: The Chibi Alien Arc which extends a few chapters past the counting chapter.
    Everything else (i.e. the chapters between arcs) don't really have a name, and are just called inter-arcs. Exceptions the Shinjuku Massacre (between Chibi and Dino arcs) and the chapters leading up to the end of Phase 1 (after the oni-arc) , which are generally viewed as Arcs in their own right, even though they don't really have a name.
