Well yeah, if we're going by usefulness then I agree with Damura that all the female gantzers being worthless. Strictly speaking about looks though I think Anzu wins.
That's to be expected though, not to many women would make good warriors.
What do you mean 'she current stay at her friends house'. Kei clearly only let her in because he wanted to abuse her sexually. Of all the choices she had, she chose to stay with Kei the rapist. As a 'pet' no less.
Oku's got another shot at female characters with Natsu. Hope he doesn't completely ruin her the way he did with Kishimoto/Reika/Anzu.

well... heres my team
- tomb raider girl (did you see the way she kicked the bottle of acid out of the Buddha statues hand? This on her first gantz mission no less)
- sniper (almost killed the buddha statue and ould have for sure if he had a suit)
- nishi (knows his way around)
- reika (fan service)
didn't put katou because we dont need him hindering us with his morality bs
edit: shoot almost forgot Cherry for number 8
My team Sakata(the better psychic),Izumi(sociopathic badass),Togo(distance shooting),Nerdo(unlikely hero in missions),Nishi(stealth),Katou-Kurono(main characters) and Kaze(hand to hand)
No teamwork but all strong version:
teamwork version, not all strong but will work as team:
Kaze (close range)
SaKata (unexpectable attack, close,mid-range)
Togo (long range)
reika (long range)
Nishi (work as individual, unexpectable attack)
Katou, Nishi, the Horny Osaka Gantzer and Kei 2.
Imo that makes a killer Gantz Team!
nishi is overrated.
The funny thing about it is that mostly everyone wants him because of his personality beside that the dude is useless in a team.
Nishi has the right mindset to be a successful Gantzer, whereas most of the other characters have got by on a combination of dumb luck and skill. The number of times Kei/Katou/Kaze/Inaba etc. have tried to solo an alien way out of their league is astounding.
That said, Nishi is useless in a team environment and disadvantaged outside of a team environment. Plus he hasn't seemed to grasp yet that aliens can regenerate and see through his invisibility. Fuck him. He doesn't belong on the 'ultimate' gantz team.
He has failed, every time i've seen him 'fighting' (tanaka alien, nurahyon). He also just has luck, while just hiding all the time..
While I agree that "Nishi being in the ultimate team" is an arguable thing, at the same time he's not that bad of a gantzer. While he couldn't do much against Nurarihyon, he killed enough oni aliens to earn about 70 points. The thing is, he's a really good Gantzer even though his skills remain off-screen.
Tomb Raider girl and the Sniper at the buddha mission were wasted, if they survived they'd be awe-inspiring Gantzers.
Well the thing with Nishi is that he doesn't seem to be able to adapt to situations. Notice how when he uncloaks or is forced to uncloak he just wont dodge. It's as if his feet are stuck in cement. When he was up against the Tanaka alien he was practically helpless. The invisibility provided by Gantz isn't all that reliable, something that he should now by now yet he fails to make concessions for this.
Only time he didn't move was against the police. When Nuri regenerated Nishi quickly cloaked and moved his position, but obviously that was useless. The Tanaka mission fucked him over. He was actually pretty quick to react but he accidentally jumped into a river or whatever that was. He lost his gun in the river and his suit died due to being previously weakened by one of the bikers.
Still, he's definitely not the best at direct fighting. He doesn't have to be.
we have never seen nishi in a situation where he didn't get really unlucky. Also knowing about how nishis mom died in minus makes his crying for his mother much less pathetic. The fact that in the osaka mission nishi got 70 points shows that he has skill.
