Did the Gantz team forget about him, because he never did appear in any of the future mangas? Did he finally get run over after escaping the zoo?

Hoi Hoi is behind this whole gantz thing remember the dog ending in silent hill, I mean how could a panda gain 30 points in one mission.

@digitaldude - correction: 40 points...

@102jayday - we don't know whether Hoi Hoi is a male or a female panda.... we can't be sure of either. Personally I think it's a male.

In some threads people said it was a girl, some points in the manga they say she, but when hoi hoi gets scored 40 points they say He.

Hoi Hoi currently resides in panda heaven and is the envy of all the Tokyo hunters.

Even if it was to be expected (since those assholes didn't put his suit on), I'm still kind of upset that the panda just died off-panel somewhere. I mean, Hoi Hoi survived through more missions than 90% of the human gantzers we've seen, and they all at least had a few panels dedicated to their demise. Then again, I don't know if I would have wanted to see that poor panda get killed.

In all actuality, I wish Hoi Hoi would have survived and gotten 100 points to revive Izumi (like many of us were hoping he would do). I can just imagine the panda running up and hugging Izumi the moment he sees him. How cute would that have been.

The dog also died off-screen. If I'm not mistaken there's a law in Japan stating that you can't show animal cruelty in stuff like this. Or something like that.

My question is how Hoi-Hoi would have chosen one of the three options should he/she have earned 100 pts.

@BrazilianGantzer: They showed the remains of the cat that Nishi butchered. And Nishi's erection. Are you sure they've got a law against it? It's a very unusual law...

@Damura - I know it's an unusual law...I thought the same thing. I mentioned that because in the discussion of the chapter after the Italy Mission, I think we discussed Hoi-Hoi for a while and somebody mentioned something like that.

I think I may have heard of a law about not being allowed to show men's genitals...I may just be confusing that law with the animal cruelty thing. Then again Oku did show a penis on Nuri more than once... :darn

Can anybody that knows more about Japanese laws than me help me out? :oh

I think that the sexaholics penis was visible once. It just seems stupid to me for there to be a law against showing animals being killed whilst you can quite freely show humans being killed. Aren't many of the aliens also technically animals? I think its great that Hoi Hoi's actions were never shown. Adds a bit of mystery, doesn't it? Would be great, now that it's over, to get some sort of side-story manga sometime depicting Hoi Hoi's exploits.

Gantz may look like he's a sadistic entity, but he has a soft spot for animals.

Just wait until the epilogue
