    ^
    I can't its total NTR 0_0 Need to convince myself that those god aliens are full of it.
    If it does continue I hope those god aliens get killed.
    Maybe it will do a timeskip into 46 years where this american boy 16 years old is put in gantz with his mother. Then what happens at the end is they fight those god aliens and win. Not to mention the mother is a Milf and they have it off for each other and during that final mission they learn they were lovers in a former life lol.

    The GOD aliens were just a complete boner kill, even worse than your typical dues ex machina. I remember when I first picked up Gantz 7 years ago and thought it was by far the best now it's just wasted but honestly I feel that way about a lot of Mangas that keep going for the fans. gantz would make a much better novel or book IMO

    Almost the entirety of Catastrophe has been awful. It had quite a fair bit of potential, but it's been really bad and drawn out.

    I am still not pleased with the whole Reika will be reborn and give birth to Kei. It would be better if he said now the both of them are dead they can be together in your supposed heaven (then laugh or say hypocrites).
    Like Damura said, it's best off just to ignore it. That entire part was nothing more than a Deus Ex Machina to tie up the Reika/Kei-2 plot. It has no function besides that. More so when the whole soul thing is diluted by the fact that both Kei-2 and Kishimoto Kei are clones with living counterparts. Saying souls don't exist, and then admitting that they do about 2 pages later is basically a testament to the quality of Oku's writing.

    Don't even get me started on the generic nihilist lines like "life has no worth" or "there is no hope for the living" that Oku constantly throws out. It's boring and tired.

    Re: Gantz 378 Spoiler Discussion Thread

    Highlights of Katastrophe for me include:

    - Kei1's initial search for Tae before the deus ex machina brain scan tracking device bullshit happened
    - Nishi up until he lost his marbles and declared himself emperor of the universe
    - dickass swordfights with the giants (will be awesome if that shit ever gets animated lol)
    - CHERRY!
    -bubble chicken (could have been awesome)
    - and Gonde! (and why not? he's too good!)

    What ruined it:
    - poor characterisation
    - excellent side characters introduced and then more or less killed off instantly (basically everyone Tae ever met plus zaibatsu, americans and those guys that Kei2's team found before the bubble monsters)
    - god aliens
    - Nishi's anticlimactic death scene
    - Tae in space
    - nonsense plot
    - Mary
    - Kei2/Reikas death, wtf
    - and the hundreds of panels of the same characters expression as they talk with a white background behind them. Pretty lazy lol, but I can't remember at all whether it's only recent or what?

    ^Liked the entire Cherry part too, and the scene with Sekine's mutation and the moment where Reika, Kishimoto, Sei and Baldy got revived and then destroyed again.
    Really liked Fra too, but too bad that she died in such a lame way.:/

    The whole Tae and Kurono situation is probably the worst!

    yeah, their deaths while it was a bummer to see those two die, it wasn't that that killed it for me. it was being given the knowledge of what is to become of those two afterwards is what truly bugged me. if Oku wanted a deux ex machina to kill Kurono2 off then alright, but it didn't need to give out the fact that Kei2 gave his life away just so he can have a mother/son relationship (non-incest relationship) with Reika.
    it doesn't help the fact that Kei2's death is so forgettable that whenever you try to think of Kei2's death, all that comes up now is Reika being his mother in his next life.

    i've also don't like how Oku has been putting bad-ass fights off-screen lately. the flashback of a previous team fighting those giant bone aliens with several hard-suits with them, the last two Osakans fighting the spores, Reika's final fight, the American team fighting the aliens and defeating Gonde and his group, Gonde's latest fight with one of the American team.

    and an explanation as to how that certain American team is the only one with a working sphere? is that the "prize" that Nishi spoke of? of the ones who defeat the giants will rule the world, that their sphere will be the only working sphere as their prize thus having the potential to rule the world?

    Another chapter that can be summed up in two sentences... Oh well, at least we're one step closer to resolution.

    Hey, the Giant might put on a suit and reveal that HE was the Host Samurai all along!

    Gonde: "Kei... I am the host samurai!"
    Kei: "TAAAAAAAAAEEEEEEEEEE!!!"
    *jumps off the mothership*

    Awesome chapter! He doesn't even need weapons! Such a bad ass!

    And such intense build up for a fight!

    He will make couple of Rasengans and smack Madara to the ground whilst everyone is watching! Naruto will surely win!

    EDIT:

    Crap.. wrong forum...

    Re: Gantz 378 Spoiler Discussion Thread

    Hey, guys! I new here, and this is my first reply. Sorry for the bad english.

    Gantz does not end this year. Nor the next. There remain many points without explanation, as the Vampires, Sebastian (I know it is implied that he is, but I still think it would play an important role in the story) Kei2 (I still am, really? I mean, seriously?). Now is the proof.

    The authors of manga, including Oku, do not give point unknotted. So why the return of original Kishimoto? If it really was the end, it would be unnecessary to focus on it. Frankly, no frame would be worthwhile to spend with her if that's all. So I can only think that there is still left to gantz story come to an end.

    Another thing are the God Aliens. They are not allies actually seems true enemies. Judging from the conversation Nurarihyon, they seem to have caused the destruction of the aliens in the solar system, but possessed so much power that they could do nothing to stop, so they fled to Earth. But God provided this equipment Aliens Gantz to ensure the survival of non-human, but to ensure that the aliens not to settle on the planet, how to maintain his empire.

    My bet. No chance of a peaceful solution, even with the duel between the Gond and Eeve Kurono. What will happen to the aliens and their ship? After chapters with Fra, one realizes that there is no big difference between humans and the alien invaders. No matter who is up or not, the two have the same kind of emotion, "human" as love, anger, hatred and revenge.

    I do not know what the outcome of the duel, but I see the prospect of an alliance between the two sides against God Aliens. How did they win? No idea, but noted that Gantz loved by their creativity and also his criticism of the nature of people.

    Gantz is magnus opus of Hiroya as in Oku Berserk is Kentariu Miura. Both possuiem the slow pace, a hateful character (in the beginning), but a fascinating character development. And none of them seem nearly over. But I embarked on this journey for many years, and I hope Oku an end worthy of his talent, which is huge.

    I like the Chapter.
    Its better than the last one.
    I think the fight between Gonde and kei can be verry interessiting.
    But i also tthink thats Gantz is end in the next few Chapters.

    Maybe Oku will make a new Gantz Manga?

    Re: Gantz 378 Spoiler Discussion Thread

    Gah the first 8 pages were wasted on Tae Kei Cry crap again could of lowered that to 3 pages....I swear he prob copys and paste that now considering he has done like 200 pages of them doing that....
    I like how they had the original Kei Kishimoto say Kei Kurono. How did that set of jugs survive the attack??? She has Tae cells? lol
    But we should have at least 3/4 of the next chapter as the fight, I am sure Oku will show Tae alot saying Kei again but will have people watching the tv say please win.

    He will prob show mercy and let them leave. The other gantzers were not, they were toying with them. So if Kei wins this he is the human that runs things against these aliens so it's his decision.
