    IMO Kaze can kick his ass, Kato can do it also...if Sakurai uses his powers correctly then he would be able too.

    He can't dodge them forever.

    I'm with GAT. I actually think a suitless Kurono, who had all his memories back, and wasn't staring at his brother's head would have owned HS.
    Although I loved how he dodged Nuri's lasers

    A simple long range shot of the X-Gun would suffice. Can't really dodge it, since it's outside his consciousness range, and he has no regenerative, laser beams, super height....man it sounds like Marvel!

    So...what is an Alien in the Gantz Universe? Is it a joke? Are they truly aliens or just nicknames? is Kurono really a Loser?
    Ahh, I see. I can't exactly read JP, although I wish I could, so yeah, I missed that.

    Re: host-samurai: mad skills or can't pay the bills

    This is a tougher question than you think.

    Does said Host Samurai, in fact, have skills that could be considered mad? That may depend on a persons point of view. While one person may calll said skills mad, another may call them sick, awesome, narsty, effin' sweet, or vermillion.

    Then the other quetion is posed. Can Mr. Host Samurai pay his bills? I don't think this can be answered without more information. Does he own a house or an apartment? Does he have cable? Does his job offer him enough cash to pay the bills in question full and on time, or does he have to also pay a late fee?

    Judging from the suit he wears, we can safely assume that he does, in fact, pay the bills, which rules out the second part of the question. The first part pertaining to his skill level, on the other hand, is up for debate.

    WHOOOOOOOOO Y'ALLS JUST GOT LEARNED!

    While I wounldn't personally call the vamp's skills "mad," I do think they're sick as shit.

    So he got a skills vote from me.

    I doubt a suitless kurono could take him out, kaze and izumi maybe. But kurono no then agian I guess you could consider me anti-kurono in some ways.

    Re: host-samurai: mad skills or can't pay the bills

    i think host samurai can pay the bills his got enough money to buy a good suit and get heaps of ties and cigs so well not. hey could earn some money from the vamp fight club or he could own that place too. he got money to go get his hair n make up down to so sure he would be able to pay his bills.
    but captain marmoset is right need more information on how much his bills cost.
    well host samurai would ownage heaps with a suit on so ya

    And he should be more worth than 30 points (or maybe not, Tae was worth 30 points and i don't know if he would be stronger than her)
    Give him a suit and he is >> Nuri

    No. Even with a suit, Nuri can kill him easily if he really wants it.

    Well he has a super downwards cut that he uses alot to finish opponents like izumi, nuri and other gantzers, and conceivably he could create a sniper rifle from his hand.

    That is going to far, next is what? A rocket-launcher from his ass? Nah, he can only produce low-caliber weapons, such as uzi's and glocks.

    Actually, I was more or less basing my comments on the facts from the manga itself. HS killed a tired Izumi and a suitless Kei. He had no hesitation about challenging Izumi shortly after he was introduced. He made fools of both Katou and Kaze in the room after he had killed Kei. One on one, Katou is too slow, and HS's sword will cut through suits, so Kaze would probably go down like the two swordsmen yokai he fought. Since those Yokai were impressed by the sword, it is evidently something special, maybe designed especially for the purpose of cutting through whatever force field that the suits generate.

    In a fight, speed generally beats power, and I remember that Izumi said that HS has as much power without a suit as Izumi did while wearing one, and he also has superhuman speed. Kaze probably beats HS slightly in power, as his original strength is almost superhuman, but he loses badly in the speed department. Also, intelligence is important, and HS has a clear advantage there.

    A suitless HS would beat Katou for the same reasons, just not as badly.

    Cherry could beat HS by rupturing a blood vessel or crushing his heart, but the question is whether he would do it before he got the cuisinart treatment. Speed kills.

    HS would have been no match for Sakata, who wouldn't hesitate about blowing his heart or brain out, but he isn't part of the current team.

    Nishi may be able to take HS, but he would have to have a good reason to fight. Unless he's getting points for it or in danger, he would be more likely to get his kicks from watching the others fight. And Nishi wouldn't exactly do it one on one; he would use HS's girlfriend as bait. Hit her with the capture gun and turn invisible, tell HS to drop the contacts or the girlfriend dies. Or substitute HS's sunscreen with something else and watch him burn. Or any of several other ways to lay a deadly trap.

    I would like to see a match between a suited Kei with his memories and HS; Kei has more survival skills than anybody else on the team.
