A brief summary of any ch would be nice.
Does anyone know if Dark horse are going to publish Minus in English, or anyone else. How Currently does Gantz volumes get released?
Well guys, there is a new chapter here, from Gantz Otaku.
ha ha i thought, exa whats this? Oh muff. Nice.
New chapter is up guys, the comedian alien mission is over.
Well, i'll try to make a very small summary:
The main character is named Nagatomo, he is an astronaut and a scientist in charge of a secret operation about experimenting cryogenics on human subjects such a assasins or political prisoners, all inside a spaceship called "RETRO". Suddenly he wakes up inside the ship only to see outside a huge amount of black spheres floating in space, he first believes they could the debris of something, then he realizes there is life activity inside them and leaves the ship to bring one of those spheres inside, then he proceeds to open it and founds a girl inside it, Kishimoto.
Suddenly, Kishimoto is transfered along Nagatomo to a GANTZ room that looks like it's the Tokyo one, the black sphere inside the room starts playing the radio song and reveals the target, the "comedian alien", then sends both to the battle area. Kishimoto is wearing her GANTZ suit now but Nagatomo is only wearing his space suit, they fight the aliens (Kishimoto proves to be useful, because she knew about the missions) and are sent back to the room.
The "Astronaut" gets 6 points and "Big tits" gets 0, Kishimoto decides to stay in the GANTZ room because there is no place she can go back, Nagatomo leaves but not before saying he will be back.
That's it, i'll try to translate more information later...BTW we don't know when this happens, obviously it happens after Kishimoto went to the GANTZ room but that's it....also, we don't know yet if is canon or not.

She proves useful, yet gets zero points (with a suitless noob who scores points). also interesting they are in outerspace. could this be going on before katastrophe, or could the comedian mission be occurring during the invasion? Have no idea how this fits canon.
I hope so much Katou, Kishimoto, and Kurono team up again during Katastrophe.
This doesn't sound cannon. Is it some alternate universe or something?
GAT-X252: You sure this is implied it happens after Kishimoto has been to the room? Did she reminisce about Katou or something? When I first heard the idea I thought she'd been to the Gantz room BEFORE she tried to kill herself in the beginning of the manga.
Yes it looks like it.
Didn't expect that..
I guess there could very well be multiple Tokyo Gantz teams then, operating on different days or potentially even at different times on the same night. I wonder if the guys that saved Kei/Reika before they were all transferred are actually from Tokyo.
I presume if it is canon that the alien ships took care of all the space Gantz balls...
I'm mildly interested in this story now, but unfortunately I don't read Japanese. Maybe if I'm lucky this thing might get an official english translation sometime in the next decade or so, along with MINUS.
wait what, kishimoto inside a gantz sphere that doesn't make much sense.are you sure thats how she appears?

GAT can be trusted (or at least I like to think so..). It sounds weird to everyone at the moment. It might explain where the Y-gun sends to. I mean why not? Just send it to more Gantz balls, in space!
