    Let's go step by step...

    Jedinight said if Reika, without knowing Kurono, met him outside of gantz, she wouldn't be interested.

    If Tae was also popular (ie had all sort of guys at her feet), and then met Kurono, she wouldn't be interested either.


    When the popular guy Izumi asked Tae out, she had already met and fallen in love with Kurono. That's a completely different scenario, and most any girl in that situation would turn the popular guy down.

    I can't be sure but isn't Hojo talking to Reika here? If so she definately wouldn't have noticed someone like Kurono before Gantz. She moves in the same circles as other models so would probably never even consider a regular schoolboy.

    Woah, wait! Not everybody. Are you forgetting about Katou??

    He killed aliens, and since he wants to survive he will kill again.

    Killing aliens promoted the enmity between them and humans, and that's probably why they attack without provocation now, causing innocent humans to die.


    Ah, he also lured the Tengu and doggie towards all those helpless soldiers.


    I'm not saying that Katou or the others are bad persons. They may save some people now and then as long as it doesn't put extra danger on the team. But the fact is for them to survive in gantz, humans and aliens will die, they're not bad persons for that. I think there are very few people (or probably none) who wouldn't make that exchange.

    facepalm, step by step lol, what i was talking about is the facts, not IFS , ifs are dreams, and nice to talk about but they are not true and i only say whats happening when i compare tae to reika. tae would never be popular, also when kurono asked her out she said lets start as friends, izumi could of gotten the same thing and tae would prob say but u have a gf.


    @warbandit
    yes i noticed that! i just bought the 3rd vol in aust and yeah but it seem like a slut he was talking to because he say look i dont like girls with big tits.
    but that could explain why she loves kurono, because kurono looks like hojo.
    that would mean reika will live after this mission because she explain to kurono the guy she wanted was hojo. but i dont think so....i believe also she was dating some celeb before gantz and she broke up with him. hojo wasnt much of a celeb anymore because he was un noticed. those ad's in the movies were old.

    Re: Kurono x (Insert Name Here)

    That last speech Kurono gave before they left for Italy, was inspired by
    Tae the night before. You think Reika could inspire Kurono like that.

    The fact is you used a false analogy. As shown:

    That argument doesn't make any sense.

    By that logic, Tae is a "better person" than every gantz team member Kurono met, just because she was the only one who he happened to talk about god's non-existence with. Also by that logic, Katou is a thousand times "better" than Tae: not only he inspired Kurono A LOT more than her, but the inspiration he gave came from his actual actions, not circumstantial discussions about the value of human life.

    Re: Kurono x (Insert Name Here)

    That argument does make sense, that is credit to Tae's character. And why are you bringing up Katou? This is about the females Tae vs Reika last time
    I checked. Whats a matter not able to defend your girl Reika anymore. Reika is just pretty and has no substance plan and simple. Tae is not the prettiest
    but she has substance. Tae makes Kurono a better person, Tae is the right
    one for Kurono.

    Not exactly. The means and the end don't add up to me.

    But plain and simple, my opinion. Kishimoto is the best girl out of the three. Tae and Reika have equal substance, they just come from different angles in life. Tae is more homely, and Reika is more like a pornstar. Kei chose Tae and Reika lost lol.

    You're not making any sense at all.
    (And it seems you haven't noticed I keep quoting the word 'better'. That's because you haven't even defined what "better" is. Is she a better artist? Smarter? More athletic? Prettier? What is it?)

    Tae was the only person Kurono talked with about his doubts on the value of human life. How could anyone else inspire him with that if he didn't talk about it?


    Kurono expressed his doubts to Tae and she reassured him.
    Therefore Tae is "better" than Reika or any other girl.


    What's logic in that? None.

    And you're twisting my argument too, since I'm not boosting Reika or saying Kurono should discard Tae. I'm clearing the naive misconception that Tae has some inner superiority, which is completely false.

    All we know of Tae is that she's innocent, naive and suffers from PTSD. Yet you and many more keep implying she's superior somehow, all because of some strange anti-beauty bias.

    "She has less outer beauty, therefore she must have more inner beauty", bullshit.
