    Just about everyone jumped ship apparently.

    This arc isn't quite over yet but the only events of any real significance so far have been Reika and Cherry's deaths, and Reika's kind of came out of nowhere.

    Oh and the Gantzman I guess, though he was kind of obsolete once this whole thing started anyway.

    If Oku knows something, is how to make you lose interest in something.

    The Gantz man was one of the most interesting and mysterious concepts in the manga, but when he died i didn't care one bit...in fact, i knew that the concept of the gantz man would go nowhere that one chapter that came after the creation of Kurono 2 and the gantz man went walking to the streets (gods know where...and yeah, that wasn't explained either).

    But there is still hope for the revelations in the next chapter. I liked the entire Gantz factory thing, the fat girl and Sebastian...something bizarre needs to happen in the next chapter.The mistery behind the aliens and the black sphere are the most interesting parts of this manga for me.

    Is 'character bashing' not allowed? Why?

    What if they're really shit?

    I liked the gantzman's death... the scene was good, but the timing was bad. The perfect timing for his death would have been AFTER revealing who the hell he is. The stuff you mentioned in your last paragraph ought to be very interesting but it's fairly likely at this point that they'll be dropped without any further mention.

    It's right after the aliens start sending suicide ants into the apartment. Nishi makes an epic escape together with Takeshi, and Gantz man comes flying after them... so to speak.

    Chapter 342.

    About who the Gantzman is... I think we can safely assume that the Gantzman is a transmitter like the fat German girl. And the reason for why he can't revive people is that the people who control Gantz aren't sending the codes to bring back the dead to him, only instead giving him the codes to transfer people.

    Do so in a more constructive manner, no outward bashing and not too much non-contributing posts where it is just out in the open bashing and nothing else.

    Now no more off-topic posts guys, discuss the current events and chapter in this thread only.

    If you didn't see that coming for his character, then thats not Oku's fault.

    I always figured Nishi would want to do something like this.

    He knew that the person that wins controls the world. It was to far a stretch of the imagination to assume he'd like that.

    The thing is, we all knew Nishi was a weirdo, but he kept it to himself. His main goal from the start was to get 100 points and leave gantz(hinted from his death scene). We saw that Nishi doesn't attack people only when provoked, and doesn't really help people unless it humors him. It seemed very out of place to have a person like Nishi who only killed for pts and killed cats for sexual pleasure and wanted to survive for his mother to a guy who saved a kid suppose to his 100pter weapons, and wanting to come ruler of world. It just seems like a huge jump, or lazy writing if you view it like that.

    You thought he wanted to "rule the world"?

    The idea that anyone could single-handedly control the world is already a stretch.

    I think his comments at the death scene were simply regrets that came to the surface because of his injuries.. in the end he never left. I don't think he ever would have. He was in it for the long haul...

    Like I said, it wasn't that far a stretch of the imagination for me.

    Its not oku's fault you didn't see it coming.

    Or didn't expect it

    The kid said "who ever wins, controls the world". So I just assumed he may be interested too.

    Nishi's character progression has been all over the place.

    I don't blame oku for not having planned for Katastrophe during the second arc of the story.

    So who nishi used to be and what he becmae later on when the manga had a clear destination was understandable.

    I didn't say I thought he was going to. I said, I wasn't shocked to see that he would want too. I don't think it came out of no where, and I think it makes sense based on Nishi's character.

    Nishi's motives seem to change through out the story. He's not a suicidal maniac. He always had a plan.

    And he doesn't do frivolous things. He's a little pussy for gods sake, he wouldn't have teleported on the Mech without having some type of plan.

    Sure saving takeshi was out of character, but at least he made up for it with how confused he was by his actions. So its not like they just left it dead in the water.

    Amazing how you guys complain about character development, then nishi's character expands, and you hold it against Oku.

    Jesus, Gantz can't win with you guys.

    Non, this was a sudden change imo. Plus his actions weren't even remotely rational. He's a lot of thing but he's not insane.

    I don't agree. Is his statement that whoever 'wins' Katastrophe gets to rule the world an indication that a) thinks he can do it by himself or b) even wants to? I don't think so.

    Except this time apparently.

    That's exactly what he did.

    I actually thought this was well within his character.

    I don't think it expanded. It threw every existing personality trait out the fucking window in a convenient attempt to have Kei and Nishi face off for once. And Kei and Tae won of course, surprise surprise. Fuck any rational outcome of Nishi's considerable attempts to take both of them out.
