    The strong weapon

    I have a question after seeing what we can only assume is the strong weapon what exactly do you think it does. I for one think that it is just like an accelerated version of the x-gun where instead of it taking a couple seconds it happens almost immediately. The only problem with my theory is that if nano machines are how the guns work then how are these ones suddenly traveling faster than the others.

    There really is no question I would just like some feedback to see what everyone else thinks. I believe that discussion is the only way we can learn anything beyond what is shown to us in this particular manga

    Are you talking about Izumi b/c even though I assume everyone gets the same strong weapon I don't see Izumi using the gun b/c he has always used his sword. Maybe gantz would give him some I don't know like throwing knives or something?

    Re: The strong weapon

    I don't think the katana has any limits b/c all it seems to do is extend, the suit seems like it is what does the real work b/c whenever he does his dramatic bisection of an alien the suit always flexes.

    Re: The strong weapon

    Judging by the crater the weapon seems to leave, I think that the weapon may just be a targeting device for some sort of satellite. We know that the Y-Gun transports the aliens to some unknown place, maybe this place is some sort of satellite or ship in orbit around earth that is also equipped with a weapon. I'm only saying this because of how it seems that the blurred image above the alien on page two of chapter 247 indicates that the blast comes from above.

    About it being instantaneous, I disagree. There very much seems to still be a delay after it is fired.

    Re: The strong weapon

    I think the blur is just like the force from the weapon firing upwards. Though it may be true about not being instant b/c looking back now, the one guy gave the black one minute to beat that monster, and if it were to happen in an instant he cold have just pointed and fired.

    I do like the satellite idea though b/c looking at chapter 247 it does seem plausible, it can be the reason for one minute, why the guy jumps back before the explosion, and why there is a blur above the monsters head

    Re: The strong weapon

    Yeah, especially since there is no blur below the alien, only above it. It leads me to believe that the blast isn't coming from the weapon.

    Re: The strong weapon

    umh he shot into his head so thats why its blury,and he jumped back because this team care about how they look and all that, so i think he just jumped not to get all bloody,i dont realy think that theres something like the satelaite....

    but maybe it is cause do u rember in da anime when dat politic who walked away and steped out of the zone he should have been the signal came from above,i think your theory might be truth but i think mine might be to

    Re: The strong weapon

    The reason I like Xio's satellite idea is when you think about it there was like a perfectly symmetrical indent below where that alien was, and also not all of the alien was destroyed only the parts that were inside that circle were. So when you think about it the satellite is perfectly plausible and indeed more defendable then the accelerated x-gun

    Re: The strong weapon

    maybe it might be not only a bigger and stronger x-gun version but it might be like that transport gun,the satelaite comes in and takes the amount which is in that circle,man its going deeper and deeper.

    Re: The strong weapon

    I don't quite understand what you are trying to say but it sounds kind of redundant in that killing the alien and then transporting it is kind of useless unless you run into something like the 1000 armed buddha again in that case it would be great b/c after you fire and blow part of it up it would be transported before it could heal.

    Question: Does anyone know if you get the same amount of points for sending the alien as killing them, and does it make a difference if you go hand to hand or weaponless?
