    For me it's not like the last moments of a person being revived are replayed intentionally by Gantz.

    I think Oku just did show us what it was like for a person being revived, and more specifically...

    Of course, this isn't a random redesign decision. Oku designated Nishi to be a bit like the evil twin of Kei. There always was a morale competition between the two, since the very first mission.
