Here's my list and a very brief explanation on why they're there

1.Kurono- leader
2.Katou- moral compass
3.Cherry- mindfreak
4.Old balding guy- good setup guy and can take more than a few hits
5.Sniper- put a suit on that guy and he's hitting 1000 points fast
6.Kaze- good old fashioned brawler
6 1/2.Takeshi- comes with the Kaze package and has potential
7.Oka- 700 points. So far could be the best Gantzer.
8.Hoi Hoi- If it gets pissed while it's got it's suit, someone's going to get hurt.

2ndKurono
July 25, 2007, 04:36 PM
man why ur overrating the sniper dude that much,he just shot from somewhere and all,anyone can do it,Nishi is way a better sniper then him.

Captain Marmoset
July 25, 2007, 11:31 PM
Nah, Nishi always got too close and was overconfident. Maybe now he'll be more careful, but I think that if that sniper had the knowledge and experience with Gantz that Nishi has, then he would still be around. He had a good technique and figured out the flaws and advantages of the guns quickly. His only problems were Thousand Arms regeneration and he didn't have a suit.

Plus, the guy was a military sniper. Nishi isn't. I think training might count for something.

Sheard
July 26, 2007, 01:38 AM
My liking for the sniper guy comes from playing strategy video games. The sniper guy really is the only real long range person. Sure everyone can technically use guns, not everyone chooses to use them... and those that do, don't use them at such an extreme range as him.

Kurono and Izumi are pretty much close-range melee, with the two psychics being close-medium and most of the others being somewhere around the same. The sniper really is one of the few that probably wouldn't stand around scratching his butt if dealing with an enemy that is flying nor would he make a suicide run on an enemy that you really cannot safely get close to (unless you're Kurono.)


I only included Nishi because even though the rules changed, he still pretty much knows way more than anyone else on the Tokyo team as to what is going on... but a lot of this depends on if he decides he's going to act more like a team member instead of his usual tactics of hiding while using the others as fodder to shield him. I think this is why Kurono picked Nishi for being resurected towards the end of Phase 1 over some of the other people that would be more willing to get along.

2ndKurono
July 26, 2007, 05:44 AM
^well judging from the this misssion hes the same asshole as before,but i dont know the Tokyo team aint in trouble right now but he may show up like a hero,its possible,but knowing a jerk like that he wont change at all.

Captain Marmoset
July 26, 2007, 12:04 PM
The only way he's changed is that he'll be a lot more careful this time, if he even does anything. He's already died once, he won't want to do that again.

Hollow Kurono
August 01, 2007, 07:12 AM
he died twice.but it seems he doesnt do anything,im curious if hes alive right now,but he is,i wonder how hes doin.he will def have a big role in the next 5-10 chapters,believe it!

Kurono + Old man is definetely my favorite combination. Add Sniper and we have an undefeatable three man team, and if you want, throw in Katou as the moral compass and Kaze and Takeshi.

Hollow Kurono
August 10, 2007, 02:27 AM
Kurono + Old man is definetely my favorite combination.

yeah i think also that they are the best combination,Kurono and Katou newer acted as one,Kurono and Izumi:notrust forget it,killin the Oni boss was just something he needed himself to do.

popothepenguin
August 10, 2007, 03:22 AM
Yeah, but if kurono was still alive, he'd probably do better with the newly revived Katou. The only reason I think it was unlikely that kurono would asked to be freed is because of his relationship with old man... I was kinda hoping that Katou and Old man would pair up afterwards.

yeah and i think this will be possible,they both will join forces and bOOOYA!!!!But i think he would do better with the Old man then Katou,we newer saw them fighting someone like they did,but they could make a good trio :p and Katou already has a partner and thats Anzu.

Well the problem with Kurono and Kato was that when we did see them together, they had to deal with Kishimoto constantly undermining things and making sure that they would never be able to act as one while she was around. If the two of them actually teamed up without her there, they'd probably be a strong combination.


I do think that Kurono, Old Man, Kato and Anzu all going at a group of enemies together at once would probably make for a strong team even without anyone else helping them out.

well yeah she was,but Kurono newer was in situation to work with Katou,remeber first mission,that was ridicilous everyone did anything,Katou was acting stupid,then Kurono found his old self and defeated him,NIshi probably wouldnt do it,if it wasnt for Kurono and Katou was lucky back then cause he almost survived.Second mission Kurono was without the suit so to make him safier,Katou went with those who were with the suits and left Kurono with those punks and Kurono defeated them all again.And then the third budah mission,Kurono wasnt no team player at all,went all out himself,and everyone just watched him,then they did two groups of people,Masanabu group and Kurono group,Masanobu died group,then when they entered the room Kishimoto ruined everything and Kurono went crazy and atacked carelessly and almost died.And everyone died and Katou died to.Thats it.But i dont think they would make such good group as Kurono and the Baltie were.

October 05, 2007, 01:15 PM
I've fire guns, and firing them accurately is not easy Hollow Kurono. Especially when you're hundreds of yards away and using a weapon that has a delayed effect. The sniper was obviously trained in the military. He'd be a valuable asset to the team now, especially with all of these many yokai.

Hollow Kurono
October 05, 2007, 02:32 PM
^^Yeah it did have a time delay but it was way better then an ordinary gun,the delay is its only bad spot,and i think its way easy to zoom with it,remeber the Kurono and Izumi duel,when Izumi got killed by Kurono and went back to the room.

October 05, 2007, 11:08 PM
Well forget about Kyou, cryed enough for him, let's move on!

Togo is on my list! But Togo...hum....reminds me of the hero in Golgo 13, Duke Togo who is actually a fire weapon fanatic.

HK : A long range shooter means you can move more freely in a danger area. You have back up if you can't manage all your enemies. It's war basics. He was actually very helpful during his only mission, he supressed and slowed many buddhas.

TheGenius
October 06, 2007, 02:19 AM
Wow, your list is very similar to mine! I'll paste yours and give reasons, if you allow me.

My Ultimate Aggressive Team :

1) Kei Kurono ;Simply the best, rock star, Devil May Cry like, horny bastard(gets all the chicks), and the best Gantzer could've had a bright future! I think he's the one that gotten the most points suitless!(Plus if you add the vamp attack!)Prone to come back by at least 4 Gantzers, he will make his return like Jesus! Only survivor of the buddha mission, only Gantzer in the Chibi mission, defeated along number 2 the Boss Oni. I think a united voice chants like mega soccer fiels,
Kei come backkkk!!!!

2) Shion Izumi ; What more can we say about this 6'5" psychotic über-athletic teen. powerful to a fault, he was the only survivor(along with Tae but don't ge me started on her!) of the Chibi alien attack! Suiteless with no knowledge of Chibi's powers! He showed higher than normal intellect in the anime and overwhelming physical capacities. He cleared at least 3/4 of the vampire population.

3) Daizaemon Kaze; If I was to pick a bodyguard, 7' Daizaemon would be a pristine choice! Cream of the crop, travels Japan like Ryu to find a good fight.Defeated 100 thugs in a park, a pro boxer, gay bullies and picked a fight with suited Kei in ONE day! Also proud step-father of Takeshi who I believe is the future of Gantz!

4) Higawa . (Host Samurai) Higawa, Higawa, if you weren't so good, I'd hate you for the fact that you got rid of number 1 and 2!! Vampire, suitless, deadly efficient , can extract weapon from his palm. At least 150 year old, since Hosts in Japan disapeared during that time. Also defeated two Yokais in less than 2 minutes, he unfortunately lost a finger during the fight. Development has yet to be made.

5) Kenzo Sakata . Renown for his telekenetic power, he gave a part of his knowledge to Cherry. A very disputed character here in MH, as he brought the team's spirit down.

6) Juzo Togo (the Sniper) One of my personal favorites, in a flash, mastered the long range Gantz gun which help defeat a lot of statues during the buddha mission. Also a decent martial artist, he could've survived if he wore the suit. Killed with honor in the Buddha mission.

7) Yoshikazu Suzuki (Old Man) A very cheerful and courageous 40-50 year old man, in his first mission, assisted Kurono defeat many dinosaurs in the Jurrasic Park mission. Also proved his courage when the first vampire attack was made on Gantzers. Found very useful in the Oni mission. Notable fact: He sees Kei as the hope for mankind.

8) Hiroto Sakurai (Cherry) A yound telekenetic prodigy, earned his power from Sakata, which he calls master. Learns extremely fast, as seen in the Oni mission where he learned how to counter fire at the second attack and when he first started discovering his powers.

oufffff....

Hollow Kurono
October 06, 2007, 08:13 AM
^^ So now we have to make reason,ok.Snap u have a good list dog.


1.Kurono Kei-By far the most kick ass Gantz charachter ive seen so far,hes da best leader,has a purpose and has some super strenght inside him,aint afreaid of no T-rex when he doesnt have a suit on,chooses a simple girl over a supermodel,survives with no arm and leg...flies into a budahs head,not kwoning the suits power,releases it and kicks the shit out of the Leek boss,knows how to use those weapons in a tuff situation,has da confidence to beat anyone,fought one par with the Oni alien which Kaze couldnt or Izumi.Fucked Angelina Jolie.And actualy trained the entire team.Killed lots of vampires without his suit on or havin any Gantz gun or havin all of his memory back.My idol,the guy i like to look up to.He looks jsut like me from da face and some other things,hes my all time fav anime charachter.

2.Katou Masaru-Has a big heart,fights not for one reason but for a couple,cares about the people around him,wont sacrifice anyone for da succes of a mission.Aint da best leader,realy confident,has da confidence to beat anyone,takes care for his lil brother.Aint scared to talk big when his in da tuff situation.

3.Shion Izumi-An addict for adrenaline,doesnt have a true reason,but hes a good warrior cause he only thinks about the mission and only for da mission,brought the katana to the game for da first time,made friends with a panda,brought lots of great members to the team.Showed were u can get bikes,and killed many vampires by himself.

4.Nishi-Probably the best Gantzer in tactics,realy knows when to atack and when to fall back,has the most knowledge about Gantz then anyone,proabably a guy that stayed the longest in da Gantz room out off all chrachters that we know.Has a very cocky altitude but that doesnt bug me,says the truth about people.And could be very valuable if he worked as a team player.

5.Host Samurai-Without the suit he can fight with the strongest Gantzers.Can kill strongest aliens.Has a cool altitude and in my opinion will change into a good guy and will help the team to succed in mission,wants to get back his finger.Showed some moves of Kurono.Cant wait to see what hes capable with the suit.

6.Sakata-His talents are very usefull to the team.Actualy newer used the power of the suit,but if he used the cloack mode and added his powers to it,he would be by far one of the strongest Gantzers,the power he has is realy usefull to the team.And he can give some influance to the team,good and bad.

7.Baldie-The best side-kick Kurono has ever had,brought some sense into Kurono in da "Jurasic Park" mission.The first person he cared in da room since Katou.Knows how to drive a bike in his old age,from da first time he activated the powers of the suit.Helped Kurono kill the "Jurasic Park" boss.By far Kuronos best side-kick.

8.Well this has to be a hard one.

Kaze,strenght wise hes at the top,probably the strongest human in da world,if he teached Kurono some of his moves,Kurono would be unstopable,and if he knew how to use the suit more,he would be unstopable,a very big piece to the team.Im happy hes here.Will teach a boy how to be a warrior at age 5.

This should be my list.I didnt put Mis.7 or George in it,cause i have no clue about theyre fightin styles and other info.Comin with other lists soon.MHD u did a good one.

^^Well theres still some chances that hes still alive and if he is revived in da room then he will remeber even more then the time he got killed.Now it bugs me what if Kurono wont comeback if hes actualy dead,cause he didnt go to the room and that means he aint in da data bank,well and that what makes me believe that hes a life,i hope.

He just had the Strong Weapon at that moment, it would had been easier to kill with an X Shotgun(there isn't a minute before shooting), but there wasnt one..

Still, Kuwabara is better..he is too badaas..and it seems that until now that his suit is without any damage...e even fighted Jakotsu baba with the half os his suit..

Here's my list and a very brief explanation on why they're there

1.Kurono- leader
2.Katou- moral compass
3.Cherry- mindfreak
4.Old balding guy- good setup guy and can take more than a few hits
5.Sniper- put a suit on that guy and he's hitting 1000 points fast
6.Kaze- good old fashioned brawler
6 1/2.Takeshi- comes with the Kaze package and has potential
7.Oka- 700 points. So far could be the best Gantzer.
8.Hoi Hoi- If it gets pissed while it's got it's suit, someone's going to get hurt.

Take out the old guy and add George, and you have my new team.

Hm... first post...

Fan-girling Eye candy team:
Izumi Shion (he needs longer hair)
Kurouno Kei (nearly didn't make it on, but after so many chapters, I suppose I'm fond of him)
Katou Masaru (the pacifist, bleh, not attractive, but he's tall and manly)
Sakuraoka Hijiri (hot, hot, hot!)
Hojo Masanobu (what? he's cute, no matter how pathetic)
Suzumura Sadayo "Sadako" (she was cute, and I always liked the Ring)
Mr. Host Samurai Vampire Higawa? (don't know his real name, but I want my blood sucked)
Kazuo Kuwabara (he walks around with no shirt, why not?)


Ahem, on a more serious note. I do think a team has to be able to grow together, so as much as I like Kuwabara's chest, I don't think the Osaka members we've seen will be able to do this. They're rather disturbed and isolated. Unfortunately, their style of combat is solo, and I'm not sure how they would function as a group. Sure they're powerful fighters in their own right, but does that make them good team members? Perhaps not.

1. Kurouno Kei - duh, this guy has Hitler's charisma, the skills, the determination, and the ability to make the people around him stronger just by being in his presence. He is, in my mind, a rather perfect leader. I don't think he's as strong as Oka, but a leader doesn't have to be the strongest, he just has to lead.

2. Katou Masaru - a little iffy, but I don't think this guy has truly shone yet. His morality and indecisiveness may get him into trouble, but where Kei has charisma, he touches people with his kindness. This is useful and even necessary, as the greater people become, the greater their tendency to forget what they were fighting for in the first place, and I don't think Kato-cha would do that. His strength hasn't peaked yet, so I'll reserve judgement in that aspect.

3. Izumi Shion - I wouldn't have included him if he hadn't paired off with Kei in that last bit, or if Nishi didn't seem so respectful of him. He is psychotic and fights alone, but there are aspects of him that are admirable and heroic. If he was in the group, he would still be isolated, but it's always good to have a trump card. And I believe after a little growth, he WOULD be inclined to be part of the team.

4. Sakurai Hiroto - not as powerful as Sakata, but his mental powers and health hasn't been deteriorating. He also learns extremely fast and adapts to situations. While I don't think he is quite at Sakata's level yet, I believe he can surpass his master after a little bit. And he has shown the ability to cooperate and change tactics.

5. Daizaemon Kaze - no arguments there, flexible, yet stubborn. He enjoys the fights and grows from them in a way I haven't seen in any of them except Kei. His humanity also gives him points. I'm not sure how much he can grow... somehow, it feels like he has reached a pinnacle, but I'll see. He's here for now.

6. Mr. Host Samurai Vampire Higawa (still don't know his name) - He's not as malicious as I originally thought. Heartless, it seems, but not outrightly violent or sadistic. The way he treated his monster comrades impressed me, he doesn't hurt anyone who doesn't hurt him first. I think he can be persuaded to staying for the team, and I think he can be the 'evil' to Katou's 'good' so-to-speak. A necessary evil for proper team dynamics.

7. Oka - is it just me? Or does this guy seem like a robot? I'm worried that no matter how powerful, he is not capable of growth, simply fighting and fighting with no motivation or purpose. However, his strength is definitely an asset. If we see him in the future chapters, he may stay or go. But right now, he's here.

8. Nerdo - wildcard! He's impressive, neh? And I've always liked geeks. He has an intelligent that shines through even when he's terrified, and with some polish, I think he'll be good.


-Reika has not been very useful, and I haven't seen her do anything Kei or Katou can't do, so she's not on.
-Sakuraoka - I love this woman. I think if she had another chance, she could shine, but at the moment, I don't know.
-I think there will always be people who have less potential on the team, but that's what gives the series a little reality. I wouldn't include the old man or Sakaba in my final eight becuase teamwork can be cultivated in the right environment, health and physical strength is harder to obtain.

well i think kurono might be the best in the gantz team
but all the osaka people are just trash and that they complete 100points menu so many time might be becuz they were just fighting rookie monsters and i am not sure about the Stealth guy in the osaka team which they haven reveal yet

GAT-X252
December 12, 2007, 12:46 PM
If there is a trash team, that is Tokyo team.

George is pure quality for example, he killed a weaked 68 pointer in a very creative way.

Kuwabara is always fightning half naked, that means that he had dodged all the attacks from the aliens, if not he would be death.

In a hard fight with a high points Alien, you need skills. I mean...you saw what happened to Reika, Suzuki & Inaba when they fought the Oni Boss?

Suzuki just jumped to attack, and his suit went usseles..XD..Reika was even worst, she did nothing, but at least she moved...not like Inaba.

Sakurai & Sakata aren't very good without their special powers, they should need to learn how to use the Gantz equipment better, because not always they would be able to "see" inside the aliens...invisibility would be the perfect match for their powers.

More than teamwork, you need to watch yourself, because not always your partners would be there to help.

Oh well...and get some BMFG, cuz if they dont get better weapons, they would die(Izumi's words)

Max 8 members eh? Since we've seen more than that in the room, I'll cap it at 12. I'm gonna go ahead and require that all of these people wear their suits even though some of them refused. Host-Samurai has been left out because he really can't be trusted (we don't know yet if those sadist kills were a one time thing and he'd kinda screw up the group dynamic with kurono and izumi on the team).

1. Sniper from buddha mission- See my post in who'd you revive. The mere fact that he has military training would make him more valuable than almost anyone else that will be on my team. Naturally, he'd have to be the new team leader (Sorry to Kurono, but I've always thought snipers should be team leaders since they have the lay of the land). He'd be able to offer more training than Kurono did plus come up with good tactical approaches to the missions. Throw in his army connections and he can grab some useful stuff when going into the room (I'd start off with some communication devices to coordinate attacks then move on to the explosives for setting traps and moments when the guns just aren't a good option).

2. Karate guy from buddha mission

3. Kurono

4. Katou

5. Cherry

6. Kick boxing lady

7. Kaze

8. Nishi

9. Izumi

10. George

11. Kyou

12. Kuwabara



Team subdivisions:
Alpha (kings of the hill): Sniper, Kaze, Cherry. This team will be responsible for defending the base of operations and clearing out aliens in the immediate area. Cherry and Kaze have been put on this team for the worst case scenario in defending the base. If necessary, this team will change locations depending on progress of the mission.

Bravo (best mini tokyo team we've seen): Kurono, Katou, Kick boxing lady. As long as they can keep the love triangle from screwing up the kurono/katou dynamic, this would make a good team. We've seen a great deal of camaraderie from the members of this team. If any of the other teams get into sticky situations, they'll be happy to lend a hand. Plus, they'll probably be very good at keeping each other alive.

Charlie (the osakan prime): George and Kuwabara. Even though everyone seems to think there's no teamwork displayed by the Osakans, I'd say that they know one another (personality and capabilities) a lot more than the Tokyo team members, which seems to be a hell of a lot more useful than the "teamwork" from Tokyo.

Delta (the lonesome crowd): Izumi and karate guy. Charlie and Delta will be responsible for front line assaults. These two teams take out higher level enemies more effectively than the others. They will also be the only teams equipped with the bfgs (waste of points for those who don't know how to use them).

Echo (druggy and douche)- Kyou and Nishi. These guys will primarily serve as a scouting and blitz party. Both can weave in and out of hostile territory very effectively. Kyou will make hit and run attacks on the bike and Nishi will go in cloaked, lock on, and take out groups quickly.

Under ideal conditions, the sub-groups won't try to take on more than they can chew and will rely on the communication network to keep each other alive. If any 100 pointers show up, they become the last priority so that the teams can join up against it. Beyond the points used to give Charlie and Delta bfgs, all points will be reserved or used to revive fallen members. I reserve the right to exchange karate guy for oka once we get a look at the latter.

Hmm...If we're allowed to add anybody, here's some interesting teams:

ULTIMATE OVERPOWERED: This team would just trash anything they came up against, if they didn't kill each other first. Ranked by power and potential. The "bomb in the brain" wouldn't work against Nuri, though. Gantz would have to figure out some other "self destruct" for him.
1. Nurarihyon
2. Nishi
3. Kei
4. Oka
5. Host Samurai
6. Izumi
7. Katou
8. Sakata

Most fun to watch:
1. Kei Kurono
2. Reika
3. Sei
4. Tae
5. Kei Kishimoto
6. Nishi
7. Izumi
8. Host Samurai

Ecchi/hentai: Somebody posted this combo earlier: Kuwabara, the biker guy, the rapists, the big Yakuza guy and Kishimoto. We all know how that one would turn out.

Honorable mentions: Kaze is the most memorable but least powerful of the fighters. He's only good in a fist fight. Reika is a great character, but she isn't much of a fighter yet. But she has potential. Brains, looks, character and fighting spirit are all there. Cherry is just not that great, either as a character or a fighter. Sakata is better as both. The military sniper guy isn't that great; he was a pretty good sniper but not much of a tactician; he tried close-quarters combat with an inferior weapon, against an unknown enemy. That kind of tactics will generally earn you a quick death, just as it did for him. Kuwabara is too reckless to last long. George was too reckless, too. The Osakan team in general wasn't as good as they thought they were; they had a few successes and let them go to their heads. They went into the battle thinking they were invincible. Not a good way to think when you're going up against an unknown enemy. And they paid the price.

Best Death Scenes: Kishimoto, the male model and his stalker, Nishi, Katou, Sei, Izumi, Tae, Grandma & grandson, Osakan drug addict, George. I would have said Sakata would be somewhere in the middle of the top ten, but we don't know for certain that Nura-zilla did kill him. Kei Kurono's death wasn't in the top ten. An epic one-on-one battle against HS or Izumi would have been better. As it was, it was a real let-down.

Why the Ossan?? He killed a Dino, scored 100 points, he was a tremendous help to the team and especially to a suitless Kurono!

why is everyone saying having a moral compass like katou is good? i personally feel he just slows down the team more than anything. he could be a good meat shield though as he proves in chapter 275.

1- Kurono (fast, can take hits easily, good wit sword)
2- Izumi (same as kurono)
3- Kaze (can annihilate anything that doesnt have blades, and do pretty well wit against blades)
4- Oka (big robot and lots of experience)
5- Sakata (versatility)
6- Host Samurai (same as kurono)
7- Kuwabara (if he controls his dick. honestly he took on some zerg thing that killed several other osaka team members who most likely hit 100 pts before also in the middle of raping an alien with no gun or suit)
8- The Sniper (i dont know about u but his support in the long run would allow the team to take anything on)

July 08, 2008, 04:33 PM
Out of 8?

Alright.

1. Izumi Shion - Clearly one of the best.

2. Oka Hachiorou - He's cleared 7 times. Can't doubt that logic.

3. Kaze [Muscle Rider] - Spent his life training. A true martial Artist.

4. Shimaki George - Kicked Snoopy's Ass.

5. Kuwabara - Clearly has skill, when driven by lust.

6. Kurono Kei - He has very strong adaptation abilities.

7. Nishi Joichiro - Stealth.

8. Juugo [Sniper Guy] - Sniping skills FTW. Plus, he's good at one on one.

Upon further consideration, this is the cast that would make the manga the most interesting:
Main cast:
1. Kei
2. Katou
3. Kaze
4. Nishi
Revive one great character from the past: Sei.
HS is a great character, but he is more interesting as an enemy than as an ally. Once he gets his 100 points, he's back on the other side of the fence.

Supporting characters:
The girlfriends: Tae, Anzu, Reika.

Put Anzu into the Tokyo team.

Either let kill bill, Inaba, Hoi Hoi, Cherry, Takeshi and Old Man get their 100 points and fade away or kill 'em all off.

There are too many major characters right now. New characters have always been the lifeblood of this series. If about half of the current cast either dies or goes home, some new characters can be introduced; right now, there are already so many that you need a scorecard.

One Pointer
September 08, 2008, 05:46 PM
Tokyo Dream Team assuming they all work together:

1.) Commander - Kurono
2.) All-Rounder - Old Man
3.) Commander - Izumi
4.) All-Rounder - Kaze
5.) General Support - Katou
6.) Fire Support - Juugo (1000 arms sniper)
7.) Mop Up/Intel - Nishi
8.) Novelty Member(s) - The street fighters from 1000 Arms or Sei to break up the sausage party.

Kurono and Izumi the glory hounds each operate separately but have teammates who accomodate their styles. Old man uses mixed tactics like Kurono, and Kaze can offer strong close support for izumi's sword preference. Katou goes where needed as directed by Juugo from afar. Nishi stays back in stealth and cleans up weakened/unsuspecting aliens to benefit his style while being useful to the team.

Quetz
September 09, 2008, 12:57 PM
If it has to be 8, I'd probably break it down like this:

1/2 - Nishi/izumi - General stealthing experience, the ability to hold their own in almost any situation (or the foresight to avoid a potentially hazardous situation), and overall badass-ery makes them essential.

2-4 = Kei, Katou, Sakata - Sakata being a broken character makes him an easy choice. Kei and katou have basically already proven their worth throughout the manga. At the least, Katou would be exceptional cannon fodder.

5-8 = Any random ass people that are unlucky enough to get dragged into it. Fill them in on only what they need to know, and then pull a nishi on them. It would probably be best to babysit them until a boss showed up, though.


Host samurai, Kill Bill, Kaze, etc - Too similar as far as skill sets go. Only host samurai might replace katou. In fact, let's go with that.

Cherry is inferior to sakata in almost every way.

Take that team, and give them some way to actually COMMUNICATE with each other during the mission, and we'd be set.

-Oka -Must have skills, and knowledge
-Izumi -same as kurono
-Cherry (or not so cherry lol) or one of the guys from Izumi's team cuz they seem talented and knowledgeful...http://mangavolume.com/index.php?serie=gantz&chapter=gantz-135&page_nr=4

Guys, you have to remember that it's a team, which is the reason people like Niishi (assuming there's no level of respect or force) would fail when they're highly independent in strategy. Perhaps a soloist would be beneficial when they are brilliant, contributing naturally in their individual actions, but an excellent team member may be superior to a fantastic soloist on average.

Kurono wouldnt bail, before the dino mission yes he prob would. I just think its totally stupid to flee. Kill or be killed, the enemy isn't going to let you live. Chibi alien came after kei outside of a mission too, it never stoped till it was dead. The osaka team did say to all at start to put suits on well anzu did. Kuwa and george teamed up, but that was it. Oka seem anti social to the whole team by hiding, like nishi.

Also I do think that cosmetic surgery is fairly common in japan, especially amongst idols, pop stars and the like, but I doubt Reika has been augmented.

It's not off-topic. The nature of the female cast is vital to the decision making process!

Here's the annoying shit Kishimoto did:
- allowed the dog to rape her
- general 'damsel in distress'. Annoying as fuck. She's useless. And she's always getting raped.
- Pretends to be Kurono's pet....
- Allows Kurono to stroke her because that's what 'pets' do....
- Jumps in front of acid to save some guy she hardly knew....
- Hides behind Kei/Katou and demands all the men to help her. (Although I suppose she does make a slight effort to help the team as the story progressed).
- I couldn't give a fuck who she liked (Kei/Katou). She 'fell in love' with a stranger and died for him... I don't care who it is, she's just so retarded.
- Also I didn't like her hair (minor complaint).

Anzu's just as stupid... she has a kid and she throws herself in front of a complete stranger in order to save his worthless life. Irresponsible.

'Big Titz'. They were way too big. A lot of people don't like that... whether she's ugly or not is up to the viewer to decide for themselves, really. She wasn't that brave. She made a fairly pathetic attempt to help the team and then she sacrificed herself for no reason.

I think it said somewhere that Reika was all 'natural'.* She's still a crazy bitch though. So obsessive...

I wouldn't want any of the female cast on the 'ultimate' team to be honest. None of them have proven to be all that talented and most of them appear to have some sort of brain dysfunction.

Because she didn't do anything benificial for the team, running screaming around, yelling Katou's name all the time, using Kurono to stay and eat at his place just to tell how great Katou is(she could have stayed at her friend's place), she rather was poison for the team, even the Panda, Inaba and little Takeshi did more than her!
The real reason she was in the Manga was because of the Fanservice.:p

But I wouldn't say that Kishimoto is ugly, I wonder who and why they say that? She looks pretty cute and sexy.:amuse

- Jumps in front of acid to save some guy she hardly knew....
- Hides behind Kei/Katou and demands all the men to help her. (Although I suppose she does make a slight effort to help the team as the story progressed).
- I couldn't give a fuck who she liked (Kei/Katou). She 'fell in love' with a stranger and died for him... I don't care who it is, she's just so retarded.
- Also I didn't like her hair (minor complaint).

Anzu's just as stupid... she has a kid and she throws herself in front of a complete stranger in order to save his worthless life. Irresponsible.
<hr noshade size="1">


'Big Titz'. They were way too big. A lot of people don't like that... whether she's ugly or not is up to the viewer to decide for themselves, really. She wasn't that brave. She made a fairly pathetic attempt to help the team and then she sacrificed herself for no reason.

I think it said somewhere that Reika was all 'natural'.* She's still a crazy bitch though. So obsessive...

I wouldn't want any of the female cast on the 'ultimate' team to be honest. None of them have proven to be all that talented and most of them appear to have some sort of brain dysfunction.


*I vaguely remember this being mentioned with a bunch of people looking at Reika in a magazine. Anyone remember if that's the case or not?

she wasn't the brightest female there but reika has done a bunch of stupid acts too(points at the clone) and im sure if she would had the chance to throw her life away for kei she would had done it ,and her life is in even more danger now thats theirs to of them (never know when she might jump for it) But over all those other things were just their to show us how helpless and weak she was.

also she current stay at her friends's house since the original kishimoto was still alive.

The only thing that I thought was off about her character was the way she treated Kurono. Very manipulative in my opinion, she used the fact that he found her attractive to take advantage of him. Now I don't think that there's much wrong with that, considering he wasn't much better in his outlook (all he wanted from her was sex). My issue with it was that she seemed to come so easy to her.

Well yeah, if we're going by usefulness then I agree with Damura that all the female gantzers being worthless. Strictly speaking about looks though I think Anzu wins.

That's to be expected though, not to many women would make good warriors.

Reika hasn't done anything too stupid. She plays it smart compared to a lot of the other Gantzers. She's just not that talented. I don't think making the clone was a stupid decision. It's just a crazy one. She probably wouldn't have thrown her life away for Kei. She didn't do much to stop him from being killed when he was surrounded by the giant aliens. At best she'd use her points to bring him back.

What do you mean 'she current stay at her friends house'. Kei clearly only let her in because he wanted to abuse her sexually. Of all the choices she had, she chose to stay with Kei the rapist. As a 'pet' no less.

That's to be expected though, not to many women would make good warriors.

I wouldn't say that. It just happens to be a trend with Oku to create retarded female characters. In my mind the only two decent female gantzers have been Sei and that Sadako person. Sadako was a little crazy, but at least Oku never tried to pass her off as normal. She had her merits.

Oku's got another shot at female characters with Natsu. Hope he doesn't completely ruin her the way he did with Kishimoto/Reika/Anzu.

The funny thing about it is that mostly everyone wants him because of his personality beside that the dude is useless in a team.

Damura

Nishi has the right mindset to be a successful Gantzer, whereas most of the other characters have got by on a combination of dumb luck and skill. The number of times Kei/Katou/Kaze/Inaba etc. have tried to solo an alien way out of their league is astounding.

That said, Nishi is useless in a team environment and disadvantaged outside of a team environment. Plus he hasn't seemed to grasp yet that aliens can regenerate and see through his invisibility. Fuck him. He doesn't belong on the 'ultimate' gantz team.

RDN-567
January 22, 2011, 02:14 PM
He has failed, every time i've seen him 'fighting' :) (tanaka alien, nurahyon). He also just has luck, while just hiding all the time..

Magnus
January 22, 2011, 04:21 PM
While I agree that "Nishi being in the ultimate team" is an arguable thing, at the same time he's not that bad of a gantzer. While he couldn't do much against Nurarihyon, he killed enough oni aliens to earn about 70 points. The thing is, he's a really good Gantzer even though his skills remain off-screen.

Tomb Raider girl and the Sniper at the buddha mission were wasted, if they survived they'd be awe-inspiring Gantzers.

warbandit66
January 22, 2011, 09:22 PM
Well the thing with Nishi is that he doesn't seem to be able to adapt to situations. Notice how when he uncloaks or is forced to uncloak he just wont dodge. It's as if his feet are stuck in cement. When he was up against the Tanaka alien he was practically helpless. The invisibility provided by Gantz isn't all that reliable, something that he should now by now yet he fails to make concessions for this.

Damura
January 23, 2011, 10:40 AM

Only time he didn't move was against the police. When Nuri regenerated Nishi quickly cloaked and moved his position, but obviously that was useless. The Tanaka mission fucked him over. He was actually pretty quick to react but he accidentally jumped into a river or whatever that was. He lost his gun in the river and his suit died due to being previously weakened by one of the bikers.

Still, he's definitely not the best at direct fighting. He doesn't have to be.

January 23, 2011, 10:46 AM
we have never seen nishi in a situation where he didn't get really unlucky. Also knowing about how nishis mom died in minus makes his crying for his mother much less pathetic. The fact that in the osaka mission nishi got 70 points shows that he has skill.

You say "accidentally" I say stupidly. He obviously does have to be good at fighting directly since we've seen him mortally wounded twice and killed once as a result of his inability to cope in combat situations.

Damura
January 24, 2011, 01:58 AM

He's been hurt badly twice during missions. One was during the Tanaka mission, and the other was against Nuri... no one can fight Nuri solo, and it wasn't a 'direct' fight anyway. Nishi was cloaked and Nuri used his psychic powers to tear the flesh off of his arms... The Tanaka mission was a whole lot of unlucky circumstances after the other. We haven't really seen a situation where Nishi has to directly fight something. It's not his style, and it doesn't have to be.

Kei's been mortally wounded more times that Nishi has. Same for Katou. Luck is what keeps most of the main characters alive. (Except for Reika. Don't think she's even been wounded yet. She may be a psychotic bitch, but she knows how to survive)

warbandit66
January 24, 2011, 09:45 AM
Once is unlucky twice is reckless in this scenario. I find it hard to believe that in all his time as a Gantzer he hadn't come up against an alien that was able to see past his cloaking technology.

Nishi has displayed absolutely no athletic ability at all and despite what people think isn't all that smart yet he maintains his survival of the fittest mindset. His tactic may have worked in the early days but the Gantzers are up against a totally different set of enemies now.

El Samurai Guapo
January 24, 2011, 10:22 AM
In all fairness, I don't think anyone would have predicted Nuri would have come back from being turned into soup by the H-gun. So that second time wasn't really reckless IMO. In fact it was a pretty opportune moment that he chose to attack. I'm also not unconvinced that he wasn't trying to save Katou either.

As far as not having athletic ability, it's not exactly a requirement to survive in gantz. Remaining hidden and attacking with a powerful weapon when the enemy has it's guard down is probably much safer than running around and jumping all over the place. That being said, he is wearing a suit, so if he needs to he can still do what the other gantzers do.

warbandit66
January 24, 2011, 10:29 AM
I always thought that the suit enhanced one's innate physical prowess. So what Nishi would be able to achieve whilst wearing a suit would be less than what somebody like Katou could achieve whilst wearing the suit.

And although Nuri's psychic attack was unexpected especially considering how utterly he was defeated the fact still remains that Nishi was careless. If he had been observing he should have considered the possibility that his attack would not be the be decisive blow.

I personally don't think that's the way the suit works, but even if that was the case, we've seen characters like Reika jump super high, and the old man tossing a dinosaur in the air (i.e. with the suit on Nishi should also be capable of super human strength and acrobatic feats).

And I still don't see how Nishi was careless; I don't know how he anyone could have foreseen Nuri regenerating from an attack that turned him into a big pool of blood.

Damura

I think to some degree it is. Kaze is surely stronger with the suit on than the rest of the players. Nevertheless everyone is still massively enhanced by the suit. Nishi will at least be approximately equal with Kei, Reika and Cherry.

Can't really use Nishi's loss against Nuri as an example of carelessness. No one can go up against Nuri singehandedly. Even Kaze would have been fucked if he tried to fight the form Nishi lost to.

Nishi has done pretty well outside of those 2 instances. He managed to earn 70 points in Osaka and excelled in Italy where Inaba, the Old man and Kei failed. He's not that bad.

RDN-567
January 25, 2011, 03:08 AM
Don't forget, that the newbie Osaka nerd also managed to get 80 points in Osaka. Its not a big task to whack a lot of monster with H-gun in invisible mode. And also we didnt see how he fought in italy. Kei fought in the first rows. Nishi probably preffered a safe distance position and hiding.

But I hope I'll be convinced in the upcoming fights against the giants that he's indeed a badass.

Lol nerdy can't be used as an example, he didn't get kills using an H-gun he got them using nuri's head and pretty much killing a huge amount of aliens in one go. Imagine the amount of avoided deaths if nerdy killed nuri right when he was stunned for the first time.

wow this thread has been active since 2007...

anyways i just marathoned reading Gantz yesterday (ch 043 - 303) and from reading all your team set ups, it seems as though everyone has the same understanding of who is good in Gantz and who is just a waste of time.

But thats not important. Whats important is what I think and what I can learn from others.

So MY Ultimate Team (based on who doesnt suck in worst case senario - suit dies/ doesnt have a suit/ has to kill everything by themselves for some reason)

- Juzo Togo (sniper dude)
- Oka Hachiro
- Izumi Shion
- Kurono Kei
- Hikawa (The Host Samurai)
- Daizaemon Kaze
- Kuwabara Kazuo
- Muryoa Nobuo (Knob) Osaka Leader

Now There are some benchwarmers that could form a pretty good team

- Joichiro Nishi
- Kato Masaru
- Sakuraoka Sei
- Suzuki Yoshikazu
- Sakurai Hiroto
- Sakata Kenzo
- Shimohira Reika
- Hoi Hoi
- JJ (Karate Gaijin)
- Chiaki (Kill Bill)
- Shimaki George
- Yamanaka Miho
- Yamada Sumiko
- Yamasaki Anzu
- The Guy from Hiroshima
- Hanaki Kyou (just come off the drugs first)

And finally the other characters with potential of becoming useful if theyre not dead already

- Kurono Akira - Defeated 8(+) Vampires in hand to hand combat (although he's a vamipre as well). I dont know exactly how he died but apparently he was more outstanding than Kei so he might be better
- Nerdy Virgin Dude (i havent read the part where he becomes Nerdo yet)
- Rice The Dog - could have been used for tracking and alerting others
- Kishimoto Kei (She was getting better, you have to admit that jumping in (from about 2 meters away) to protect someone from a thrown substance takes m4d 5ki11z)
- Yoshioka Kiyoshi - yakuza guy who died shooting the bigger onion alien, (what would have happened if he wore the suit?
- Hojo Masanobu (Homo): poor leader skills got him killed, proved useful at times though (its hard to tell who was better between him and inaba)
- Susumura Sadayo (Sadako): Needed better training and was unlucky, but proved useful at times
- Tetsuo (Anime Ver.): was a biker and has experience fighting to survive. had his death not happened, his actions at the budda temple would prove his usefullness
- Tomao: killed buddhist statues without use of the suit, Ignorance of 1000 arms power got him killed; i doubt any beginner could have survived that. In fact, none did
- Konta: killed buddhist statues without use of the suit, Ignorance of 1000 arms power got him killed; i doubt any beginner could have survived that. In fact, none did
- Inaba Koki - Dude should have trained, gained confidence right before he died
- American G #1-4 (these guys were just completely overwhelmed in that situation. Since they didnt have the suit on or have any weapons they couldnt hope to fight raptors. When they were leaving, they were shot and killed by the Vampires; Gantz was just too slow. Had they survived, they could have been very useful.)
- I was going to put down Uranaka Ayaka but the only way she could have had potential cancels out the way she died. If she wasnt raped she could have been somewhat useful
- Takeshi - he is on the potential list as he is still a baby and cant use a gun (what happens when his suit breaks?)
