Oka is definitely dead. There is no doubt about it. Zoom in on the picture (http://www.onemanga.com/Gantz/276/14/) and you can clearly see that the two outstretched fingers are ATTACHED TO HIS LEFT HAND along with the bent pinky and the thumb.
In Nurari's right hand is Oka's lifeless torso and a half-broken spine. All the more proof that the "strongest man on earth" is in fact, dead.
For all those who stubbornly argue that for some blue-hell bizarre reason Nurari is trying to *FAKE* out Katou into thinking Oka is dead, just re-read the chapter again; or save the picture and zoom in enough to see it. I mean the whole theory of "faking" out Katou is already dumb enough as it is, so please try not to misguide anyone else who's having doubts.
If you are such a fan of Okas, pray that the mangaka will bring him back via the 100-point resurrection, because there ain't no damn way Oka's coming back home like Jesus rising from the graves.

This "fingers" issue has been frustrating me to no end, so I decided to post this pic.
And, umm, the posts are a bit too long to, umm... go through, what's da fuzz?
Here, here's my simple explanation - at least of what my limitation allows me to explain, I even number the fingers in sequence for the sake of our comfort:
in this frame, I can only see 4 fingers, all belong to the "left" hand.
Left marked in red, right in blue.
"NO 4 - index"
No right hand fingers.
Thanks for providing the clarifying picture.
Lastly, for those people who says that the body would be seen: notice how nurari lands with an angle, or he is being propelled forward. Basic physics would prove that the body that is held in the right hand would swing back from the force of the propulsion, aptly being covered enTIRELY by the 2 arms, which completely covers the background (in the sense that you can't see the background in between the forearms). For those who thinks that the body is too thick to be covered, notice the way he lands: SIDEWAYS. Which would imply that Oka's torso would also be swung back SIDEWAYS, which is indubitably hecka lot thinner than the frontside view.
POINT AND CASE PEOPLE. Nothing to see here. Story's over. Go home.

does it matter wether hes doa? either way his role in the manga is finished the only thing that would happen if he was alive is that people would realize nurari wasnt as strong as he was believed 2 be.
i think oka bought a resurection of gantz himself from the 100 points menu in case he died during a mission he's cleard a bucket load of times an it could of been one of the more bowerful wepons he could of purchased.

Re: Oka is DEAD.
hmm reikas plan on bringing a new kurono...
maybe oka once out of his 7 clears decided to revive someone(after getting 100 points and no one else on the team was alive kinda like the budda wipe) and he revived himself so he had a extra life....sounds wild
so maybe there was 2 oka;s and one hid the whole time or the one that bailed hid and nuri found the 2nd oka lol
