I recently finished the manga of Gantz until the chapter 225, and even if this group of Gantzers (izumi, Daizaemon, Sakata, Inaba, Sakurai, Suzuki and Reika) are the ones that are surviving the most, they are not my favorite group.... I expect that to change with the arrival of Nishi and Katou.
The new Gantzers are all good people (less Izumi and sometimes Inaba), but they can't stop Izumi or any of the 'bad' people that comes to the room wanting to do whatever they please, even to hurt or to kill people. Now with Katou there, I hope that he will be capable to stop him when the time arrives (Jajaja, like Izumi could be stopped by anyone when he wants to do something). Kei Chan was not able to do it, even when Izumi killed his girlfriend.
In conclusion, I don't like this group as much as I liked the team of the 'Buddha arc'(Hojo, Sadako, Kishimoto, Sei and Katou). Hojo was brave and quiet, he had a good soul; Katou was a great leader, he may be not so good at fighting but he would do anything to save a life; Kishimoto was just like Reika, but loved with the same intensity of Tae; Sadaku... well... she
proved herself like a valuable person at the end of the arc and I really liked her style (Even if she was a stalker); and Sei was a very strong girl (She looked a lot like Angelina Jolie). I was very sorry when they all died.
That's for me, but... I would like to know. What group do you prefer??
