My bad… I was thinking about what's his name… the guy that went to the Gantz room w/ Kurono in the first few chapters. I forgot who Izumi was… one of the psychics, right?
This bi-monthly chapter thing makes it hard for me to remember… I should probably stay out of the discussions.
The childhood friend of Kurono's is Katou. He was revived after the Oni mission with the points the Old Man earned I believed. Kaze then revived Nishi with his points, and Reika used her points to free Kurono.
Izumi is the bishounen looking guy who dressed up as a black man and started the massacre in Shinjuku all so he could return to the Gantz room when Kurono killed him. You know, the psychotic guy who killed Tae?
I completely understand why you would forget these things due to the frequent breaks and bi-weekly releases.
amh Reika did not bring Kurono back to life,she brought Tae,but yeah looks like Gantz only takes the strong ones cause if he took all da people then they should have like 20+ rooms there,cause there were killed more then 100+people and there was only like 8 i think....
