Cherry sees Sakata, so he must be at the limit of dying if he uses more. So Sakata will prob convince him to live on. It kinda reminds me of narutos father appearing during the pain arc lol. Whats Nishi doing? Joining the gantz robots?

Might be far fetched but maybe the Ziabatsu brought back every single Gantzer. They might have full access to the balls since they did just randomly spawn like 100 ultra mechs, which was confirmed is the strongest weapon in the arsenal. If they can spawn 100 point weapons than they should be able to spawn dead Gantzers from the memory bank.

Cherry doesn't have anything to live for now, he's pretty much the sacrifical lamb waiting for slaughter. What Sakata might encourage him to do is hang around long enough to make that final heroic sacrifice. I can't see him returning from this mission.

I'm more concerned that Nishi is getting teleported to the battle. Is he taking the place of some goon who's dead or is he just going to pop up there with his standard suit? Poor Takeshi who'll be alone for a while without a functioning suit.

Also to above poster. If they really are reviving everyone, doesn't it mean that Reika will also be revived? Lol at the mood whiplash when they just buried her and she pops up saying: "Hey guys! 'Sup?" (then Kei will immediately wrestle to the ground and make sweet sweet lovin' to her).

I don't think it was that many mechs...Plus, they said "largest" weapon, not "strongest". That's a big difference (Oka's mech x Oka's Suit).
But I don't think it would be impossible that they would resurrect every Gantzer. It would be awesome to see some old characters again. Although if they brought Reika back it would be a kick in the nuts for us after the last two chapters! hahahhaa

Edit - I should have read Ruhina's post beforehand! :derp

Well its either they revive everyone or Cherry is just hallucinating. If its the real Sakata than it will be funny if Kei's team is running around and see Reika and all the dead Gantzers in a group. Reika will only remember up to the last transfer point so she would not even know she died so when Kei2 sees the new revived Reika he will love her even more. I can actually see that play out.

Cherry fuckin lost his mind.

Sorry, sakata more than likely is not alive.

But i was curious if the advanced suits and mech could be used to channel Cherry's power.

Evidently that happened. That makes me very happy ^__^

I can't believe how Cherry ditches the machines use and uses his esp to destroy two robots lol.
Yeah well these powers were sakata and sakata awoke Cherrys so it would be like his brain will power went into there too as a defense to stop cherry from overusing and die.

Sakata only gave Cherry powers because he wanted him to live and not kill himself so he prob thought if he wasn't around anymore THIS could happen.

Anyway, Cherry has long been overusing his psychic powers; it's no wonder if he dies sometime soon. However, Sakata's appearance in most-likely-Cherry's hallucination can be the single chance for Cherry to consider survival.

If Cherry is going to die anytime soon I hope this is what happens.

The Gantzers for some reason can't reach the compression tower and Cherry just "Hara Kiri's" and makes himself explode destroying the entire ship. That would be the most satisfying and bad ass death in the manga and would make Cherry look like an absolute boss. If he just gets killed by a fodder alien it will be very lame.

Is that how you would describe reika's death? getting killed by a Fodder alien?

I'd be all for Cherri doing something incredible.

He is by far one of my favorite characters outside of izumi.

And as much as I love kei, its usually the side characters that are more interesting than the main. Kei is only my fave when he's saving tai.

Ruhina
March 07, 2012, 12:55 PM
Holy schmack!

1) Why did Cherry forcibly eject himself from the G-suit? I would have died to be in one.

2) He's obviously hallucinating about Sakata, so he could still be in the suit, although rather insane.

3) Nishi got his own war mech it seems. He must either be the most ignorant/axe-crazy kid in Japan or the most entusiastic suicider ever.

Edit: I just contradicted myself in point 1 and 3, lol, shoot me if you ever meet me in the Gantz game folks... :P

i dont really like mechas, but this chapter was awesome! mostly for cherry's rage again.
thats how a fight should be like, in gantz at the end. progresive.

could it be that cherry has lost his consciousness, thats why he's portrayed as he falls out of the hard suit like a ghost through a wall..?

March 08, 2012, 12:07 AM
I got to be honest, when Sakata was shown at the end I thought "...HOLY SHIT!" Thinking that him and some others got revived somehow. Then I remembered how someone has been speaking to Cherry multiple chapters ago. It may just be a vision, but I really hope this gives Cherry a fantastic finale. I do wish he would be one of the few survivors in the end, but sadly that might not be the case. I liked this unique twist for Gantz, it's been forever since I've seen from Nishi and Cherry.

Speaking of Nishi, I can see he found a way to teleport, but I hope that him and Takeshi get some action very soon.

Somehow,I doubt Cherry will die killing himself for the greater good. From what I`ve seen of him, he's more likely to be determined to stay alive as long as possible to kill as many aliens as he can. I don't think he will kill himself, no matter how many aliens he can take with him. I think he will be the type to always believe he can kill more alive than he could be killing himself.

This is what I love about gantz. The crazy equality regardless of the sizes differences.

The gantz technologies puts the humans on equal ground with these aliens, and I'm pretty sure they did not see this coming.

At first I had wished that cherri had fought that alien instead of reika, cause it would have been cool to see a pshycic battle.

But this was a thousand times more satisfying.

The second I saw Cherri in that mech suit, I was fucking praying that it would amplify his powers.

And it did ^_^

And yeah......sakata's dead. Dont be silly people.

March 08, 2012, 10:38 AM
Cherry is the man. He even seems more powerful than Testuo esp with the mech and suit. Him going on a rampage with his powers a few chapters back has been the best part of this arc. Very satisfying to have him dish out brutal deaths to these giants. LOL I wouldn't mind a 20 page chapter of nothing but Cherry tearing through there entire race.

We have no idea what the hell sakata is gonna say.

If anything, remember, he gave cherri his powers for the sole purpose of killing people that bullied him. Thats nothing like itachi and sasule.

And why would Sakata be acting so calm, cool and collected? Seems strange. I'm guessing Cherry's hallucinating, after all

March 08, 2012, 07:52 PM
If Sakurai isn't hallucinating and Sakata really was revived, then that doesn't necessarily mean Reika would be as well since she died so recently.

Cherry falling out of the suit was weird. I sort of took it as Sakata's doing, but if he isn't really there then is he controlling Cherry still somehow?

I'm thinking that when Sakata parted or awoke Cherry's powers, he imparted something of himself in Cherry's mind.
Sort of like a fail-safe to help Cherry out. I don't think he's really been revived.

Well, if Nishi is able to control the teleportation process and maybe the healing thing too... Reviving others might be possible too. And what's the point of keeping all those people in Gantz memory unless they were recruited for something like what's happening now.

Even if Sakata is just a hallucination, I think that Gantz Database of dead Gantzers will have to serve a purpose. I mean, if Gantz was created to defeat Aliens, then why keep all those experienced people dead, knowing that they can be revived by the system and fight for humanity? Especially in this kind of hopeless and messed up situation?

well thats assuming none of this costs any resources.

Bringing people back always seemed to me like a motivational option.

Keep fighting hard for us, and you can have your friends back.

Your thinking to rationally. And anyone thats read gantz should be well aware of the fact that whomever is in charge, doesn't give a shit about using logic or reason to fight there battles.

I'm more curious why everyone keeps ignoring the fact that Cherri was just listening to his dead girlfriend speak to him.

Yeah, lets keep ignoring that fact and just assume sakata was revived because NOW the leaders decided to be rational.

we will see in two weeks.

Since the alien invasion or maybe a little bit later (after the first fight of the gantzers against the giant aliens?) it's so going downhill in my opinion. :-_-
It's a little sad and I really don't know where the story is going with this kind of pace.

I don't want to offend anyone, who is enjoying the manga at the moment, it's just what I feel for myself. To that extent, that I really don't know if I keep on reading. :-/

And Sakata? :zomg
Wasn't expecting that, but gonna have to agree with those saying it's either a near death hallucination, or Sakata left a part of himself in Cherry's head when he gave him his power.



Im gonna guess that gantz transported him into something that will have a twist to it, and not be what nishi wanted.

I love dumbass, he's probably my favorite character.

He didn't want to be rezzed. However, I wouldn't discount the possibility that he's alive again from the hackers -- especially if Nishi could hack himself into battle, and the familiar Gantz could be hacked to send those monsters -- It doesn't seem like too far of a stretch to imagine someone reviving the dead. Maybe even with some filter like every dead player that's ever gotten to 100 points. :allthe

Something about the way Cherry fell out of the suit though... It reminds me of Ichigo using the badge to pop out of his body. Cherry may be using some kind of astral projection.

he's most likely an hallucination, but I'm glad sakata is back for a moment. That being said, I think that his appearance means sakurai is going to die pretty soon (which isn't surprising considering he has become an avatar of death without any other purpose and the fact that he would most likely sacrifice himself to destroy the aliens).

And well, they already killed Reika off in a pretty lame fashion (offscreen fight, yay), so the window for main characters to go out of the picture seems to be open

He used his mind powers way too much... It's normal for him to leave the suit if he's having a massive headache... that's a normal human reaction. I bet everyone removes earphones and stuff when their head hurts because they think it's the reason behind the pain.

I thought it was somekind of Out-of-body experience (Unless Oku forgot to draw Sakurai opening his hard suit and leaving it). It's not really that weird considering how powerful Sakurai is right now.

To be honest i don't think this is an hallucination, i think Sakata survived thanks to his powers and now he is somekind of Ghost like Obi Wan Kenobi, either that or he is living inside Sakurai's mind. He probably used his abilities to take Sakurai out of the Hard Suit...i wouldn't be surprised if time has freezed.

If Sakurai survived, how could he avoid coming back to the Gantz room after the Nuri mission and completely avoid the Italy Mission? Before that, they still had the bombs in their heads. Also seems weird that he would just abandon Cherry for all the time since the Nuri mission...

He is dead, but his soul/mind remains in the land of the living...that's my theory anyway. Why appear now and not before? Sakurai is about to collapse in any moment, dead girlfriend + excesive use of his powers might be too much for the teenager.

The manga's not about to end any time soon. I would be extremely surprised if it ended in December...

Supposing that it will end in December... then this mech attack on the tower must be the beginning of the end of things. There just isn't enough time to adequately end the story at this point. Unless everyone dies very quickly, very soon.

Should the story end with the defeat of the giants I would expect at least the rest of this year and 2013 to wrap things up. I hope it continues a bit beyond the giants. There's so many things that have barely been touched upon so far.

I think this battle is going to end with the destruction of the mothership. Kurono1 is probably going to die fighting with the giant hero (then kurono2 kills the giant), Nishi brings down the tower, the ship is evacuated and then it blows up.

The giants are left defenseless against the gantz teams so they are a problem no more, and then the final arc about the german group/religion starts.

I think the Giant Arc is the last Arc.
Oku said that Gantz end this Year.
And I think too Gantz end this Year.

Now that Reika is dead :sad characters are probably going to start dying one by one, more alien forces will show up (obviously blondie alien). The fight is about to intensify with a lot of casualties on both sides. But i hope were in for more than 20 chapters.

I guess destroying the motherships is a nice little way of finishing most of the giants off. Most will die. Or ought to. And all their equipment will be crushed with it.

Right now that leaves everybody in danger. Unless they get a transfer I don't see how all of them will get away. And what about Tae? Likely to be left behind unless Fra or whatever the fuck her name was takes her straight to the exit, right now!

I'd like more of that as well. What will happen to Gantz after its purpose is achieved? The German group/Sebastian can even be a bigger enemy, considering how they created and controlled Gantz, supposing that the aliens get defeated; this can also be applied to Gantz team hackers.

I wonder if the same type of attack is being held in all the other world-ships around the world. The Zaibatsu guys are obviously crazy and wants to take over the world, but they could also be coordinating a globe-wise counter attack.

Let's just hope the NYC-team didn't miss something, that causing those reactors to blow up doesn't cause something like a giant nuclear explosion or something.

Each country seems to be responsible for their own defense. We know for certain that regular Gantzers are leading the fight in the US. Izumi/Nishi also alluded to the fact that other countries were ready to step up as well. Tokyo has to be the most clumsy rescue mission ever.

I had the bad feeling that this manga we'll end open without explaining anything and without showing a good ending for each character
however i hope in some conclusion that has some sense.
if this manga is going to end this year: 2 charapter in a mounth we are in march right: 2*9=18, 18*20= less than 400 pg, i dont think it we''l be enought, reika killed off screen , he is running out of time and pages
I want reika and the old man revived!!!!

Unfortunately his vision of gantz failed miserably.

He wanted to make a manga that could made into an blockbuster style Hollywood movie.

instead, what we got was 2 pieces of shit movies.

He failed so fucking hard with his dream, i wouldn't be suprised if gantz finished in an extremely unsatisfying way.

This series I think had the potential to be one of the best manga's ever made with amazing opportunities for anime spin-offs that don't have to suck, and movies that should have been the best made action alien movies ever.

But it didnt. got a shitty anime spin off that ended with a shitty filler ending, and two worthless movies. I'm pretty sure the second gantz movie ended the same way the anime ended, with kurono getting hit by that fuckin train for some reason.

Oh oku, how you've let us down.

Dont fuck the ending up please ^_^

why bash on the movies when you haven't seen them? i may not have liked the ending of the 2nd movie but i still wouldn't bash it. Oku didn't even get to direct it. and the anime wasn't shitty in my opinion, the only thing that was shitty about it was the filler ending and that was it.
but i agree, Oku better not give us a shitty ending to the manga.

Can't really say he hasn't seen the movie, since he never said he did. The anime was decent, I wish madhouse did the animation, and the direction. Also, knowing Oku, gantz will end on a bad note seeing how there's so much we don't really know.

I saw them, the first was fine, but didn't live up to the standards I set for it, nor was I happy with how things were changed. The tanaka fight was a massive let down, and so was the buddah temple fight.

The second one I literally couldn't finish, and just skipped around it and saw that the ending was taken from the animeish.

You can like them but I just expected wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy more. Just like I expected wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy more from the anime.

The manga hasn't let me down at all, and I do enjoy this final arc, I just pray he doesn't ruin it by adhering to this dead line.

They really dropped the ball on those movies somehow. It was so remarkably bad given the source material. How hard can it be to write a decent script? They were free to copy/paste huge chunks of the manga, and still they fuck it up.

Alright, i was re-reading the latest issue of gantz, and I noticed something that i just passed over.

http://www.mangareader.net/gantz/359/13

What exactly is happening on this page and the next?

At first I had assumed that Cherry was looking at the growing flash of the cannon being fired at him, but when I re-checked, its clear that some form of light is taking shape before cherry's eyes and exploding taking up his entire field of vision.

And then the following page shows the buildings around him exploding.

Really, I have no idea what that means, but I get the feeling that instead of Cherry getting weaker and closer to death, it almost seems like the opposite.

That maybe his powers fully matured and that might have been what that white light was.

Those lights are shots from the cannons on that robot. You can see it firing a second in the background.

I have two interpretations of what happened next. Either the robot just plain missed and the shots hit the buildings behind him, or Cherry deflected them with his power, as he's done a few times before.

ahhh I see.

that would explain why his nose was bleeding then.

He most likely used his powers to deflect both shots.
