    i think you ve read too many da vinci codes and conspiracy theories
    i doubt Gantz, or Hiroya Oku has an underlying religious message, if he did, i think he would have revealed it by now. Take Evangelion for example, they were fighting "angels" from day one, they werent giving any room for subliminality, not even in the ending, blunt, cold-served drilled-into-your-brain psychology.
    the fact that there is a cult behind Gantz in Germany doesnt precisely give it any heavenly status. If everything thats created a cult could be called heavently then we may begin ending our prayers at church by "in the name of the Gatts, the Griffith, and the Holy Pakk, BERSERK"
    the Deutsch Ball may just be an alien artifact, and like anything that causes fear, creates commotion and fanatics.
    and by the way, i believe Deus ex Machina is usually referred to when an author recurs to gods or another omnipotent entity to fix an otherwise un-fixable conflict in his story

    It still brings up an interesting point though.

    ps.
    one more thing I'd like to add in your is that
    there's a vampire in Christianity as well.
    Most, if not all, civilisations have some kind of Vampires, but they tend to differ greatly.

    I can't help but wonder what would happen if the German Gantz opened up.
    Note that Gantz itself seems to be a Germanic word.
    Perhaps the reason there are so many people in the room with it is because it's so damned big.
    Perhaps the members of this cult died and were saved in a similar way to those we know?

    The niggers dudes in dinos mission where torurist Stillatin...In my translation (I'm form barcelona, spain)they've sayed thinks like...fuckin' holidays..japan sucks...etc
    I think it's a interesting point of view coller(nice nick), but i dont see gantz like a weapon to protect the earth (sorry about my english, I'm spanish)
    I think tath there are a lot of gantz apartments arround the world too, but the aliens've manifested in some missions rols that i think, d'ont means an hostil conduct...the thousand-arms ask to katou why are they attaking him...and at this least mission the demons have mobile phones having the location of gantz fighters...resuming I think that are another beings like gantz in other worlds, in alien worlds, and looks like they seend died people/aliens betwen them like a game...finding violent fights for their own diversion.

    Good stuff. Still needs more evidence to support it, but as an early theory, this could work out.

    i have a theory about those who are selected by gantz for a while now.

    hear me out and tell me what you think. it seems at least to me that those who are selected by gantz all lead mundayne and boring/trivial lives. kurono simply fantasized about girls. others only exist for controversy and cold hearted ness like the little kid the kurono brought back and the guy who did the massacre. these lives are unfullfilled and taken for granted by those who have them. this fits in to coolers theory. its a sin (in most religions) to take for granted what god has given you. so gantz alters their life in a way where they value their lives and those of others. one could say that this is the greatest downfall of humanity...we simply dont appreciate what we have. gantz is giving them the value of their life and correcting their sin. i dont really have the words to put it any better but if i was in person i could explain it alot better.

    edit: as for the man inside of gantz. look at him. he looks frail does he not? hes in the fetal position. almost in fear of something. to me he resembles a christ like figure. but thats just me no real foundation for the statement.

    To open remaining two links, just open the main domain of the specific one, and then copy the whole url to the picture. It seems that two of these have referer checking.

    I can't imagine Little Kid, Muscle Rider, the Dog and Hoi Hoi the Panda being qualified for Gantz, using that logic.

    i dont have one for the dog or the panda.

    think about the kid though he hated his life being treated the way he was. hard to believe that youd appreciate your life when going through something like that.

    muscle rider never found any fullfillment in his life. cared about no one (love thy fellow man anyone?) was selfish in his quest for strength and didnt appreciate the strength that he alread had or "was given".

    now look at those two while in gantz. the kid has something positive in his life and values the fact that hes around someone who can be a role model. muscle rider now cares about the kid and has a reason to use the strength he has in order to protect the kid as well as the others.
