I dug Izumi when he first showed up, everyone had just died on the Buddha Mission and from out of nowhere this really tall motherfucker shows up at Kei's school. And then the new volume starts, you see him sporting the suit with Kei next to him on the cover and you get real anxious.
Shit gets even tighter with him looking up Nishi's site and asking Kei about it and the next thing you know, massive chaos. The guy gives us a more broad example than Nishi of just how insane the elite in GANTZ can be. And it was just shocking how the anxiety was answered when you find out just HOW he makes it into the room.
Adding to all this is the blade, which became his signature weapon and just made this series go from really great to incredibly awesome for how he
I think he died too prematurely. I think him and Nishi would've added more to the Osaka mix since almost everyone in Tokyo is acting like such a goody 2 shoes, even Sakata which I find quite annoying from his character ( even though he's not really into the whole elite thing, he cleared it once but he plays all too safe ).

I really think that Izumi is coming back soon. He's so far, the best Gantzer from Tokyo (I think that he's better than Kei, he's not a leader, but he believes that the mission comes first).
I think that after this mission, The Tokyo team members will get alot of points. Katou will revive Kei and Kei will ask them to revive Izumi just like he did with Nishi. Izumi will add a big value to the Tokyo team. If he didn't die before this mission, he would've kicked ass and showed the Osakan team who's better (Oka isn't included of course).
Izumi is my favorite character and I really want to see him back again. He and Nishi are my top favs!!
I saw that on an interview or some....If I have a link, I'll edit my post.
He said that Izumi was too perfect and he hated such characters. His only flaw is that he had very little morale sense. If you didn't notice, most characters in Gantz have major life issues, except for Zumi, who is near perfection. Talented all-around, crazy ass Gantzer, it was simply too much. He would have weighed too much in the mission and would threw the balance off against Nura. It would not have been a real struggle, even though he would have most probably died or badly injured. But as smart as he is, he would be too good. Kurono did the same.
