    Re: The Katou Thread

    Katou is the best developed character in the manga. And overall tough
    Gantzer. He's a better leader than Kurono, and Katou just makes you
    want to like his character and root for him.

    Re: The Katou Thread

    But that's te whole point. Katou didn't need to change for the better
    like evryone else. He was all ready a character and developed from the beginning. Katou is like a great white shark, never having to evolve,
    he perfect how he is.

    Re: The Katou Thread

    Katou does need to change. There's no way you can go through such an experience and not change. He died for fuck sake. I think Katou does need to change. He's still living with this delusion that he can save everybody. You guys are right, Katou probably can't become a better person, he's already such a moral character. Developing is not always about becoming a 'better person.'

    Re: The Katou Thread

    That is his character development. He is a cross between SuperMan
    and Captain America. He is the moral conscious of the group.
    You want him be edgier like SpiderMan or Kurono. Or Lawless like
    Nishi or BatMan. He can't that's not him. Just like Captain America.
    Katou is good the way he is.

    Exactly! Look at Reika for instance. During the Oni alien mission she was completely saddened when those 4 businessmen were slaughtered by the Oni's. By the time the Nuri mission was reaching it's climax we could tell that she no longer cared about saving everybody. Kei was the same, although he never really cared about other innocent people.

    American 'superheroes' are fuckin' retarded.


    Reika's come to learn that keeping yourself alive is hard enough. Looking out for others is suicidal. Especially when the two guys you trust to take care of the bosses have both been cut down by a Vampire with a regenerating tie. Katou is a very brave character to have continued to put himself at risk for others. He's already died once.

    Re: The Katou Thread

    If you think this, Izumi is probably one of your favorite characters. Don't?
    Lol i fcked, I responded to an old reply on page 1. never mind

    Quote Quote:
    Katou CHA! was a good character and helped built Gantz to being a 100/10 series anime or manga. When I first read the manga and Katou got rez'd I was thrilled BUT he's definately not my favourite. The reason why he isn't one of my favourite characters to watch/read is because he needs to grow a pair and harden the fuck up.

    Harsh but true, this is gantz not girl scouts.
    I still like him though.

    Re: The Katou Thread

    Katou was already a strong character. He didn't need to change for
    the better like Kurono or Reika. Gantz did the opposite to Katou,
    it made Katou want to save more people. Katou is #1. Sakata even
    admit that Katou should've been leader not Reika.

    @ Damura

    American SuperHeroes don't suck. They are the gold standard.

    Re: The Katou Thread

    @JediKnight: Gold standard? Lol. Half of them wear their underwear inside out, and the rest of them have semi-retarded costumes. Japanese heroes are way better overall in my opinion.

    Katou's better than most American superheroes in my opinion.

    Re: The Katou Thread

    As you said @ georgemarvin - he's Honest, loyal, trustworthy, heroic. He's the guy who Kei looks up to, a real superman...But what I hate in him is when he starts to feel sorrow for aliens...

    @black lagoon - You're right. By now he should have realized that if he doesn't kill the aliens, he's gonna end up turning into minced meat.

    Re: The Katou Thread

    did anyone else notice that Katou's only words in Chapter 293/294 were "Kei-chan!" ?
    man, Oku must have been lazy to find something more to say for him
    Life is but a Dream ...

    Kaze, Nishi, Izumi and even Host Samurai beat him in the popularity poll. The star of the show barely beat Hoi-Hoi the panda.

    It would be great if both Anzu and Kishimoto get rezzed and Oku gives him some tough moral dilemmas to sort out.
    I like Katou a lot. I think the reason he isn't all that popular is because he is kind of generic among the main manga characters category. I wouldn't call him the star of the manga, and I wouldn't say he is better than Kei. Kei is my favorite character of all time, so I can't really agree with that. I think Katou and Kei are just about even though when it comes to combat. Neither use many contemporary strategies. Kei more so in that department than Katou. xD
