    Well, I'm not sure why people are complaining.
    Those last few chapters with the alian with many faces is 100% better than the last part of the last arc, IMO.

    This is actually making me want to continue with Gantz, whereas I wanted to quit not so long ago.

    I've very curious to see what will happen now that someone is actually attacking it.


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    Bad philosophical pondering is a pet peeve of mine (I can't think of any manga that does it well.), and what the aliens are saying is just so shallow that I cannot help but be disgusted when the characters take it seriously.

    Sure, but when you have what felt like 20 chapters of Kurono trying to save Tae and running around like an idiot, that isn't much of an accomplishment.

    ^ Yeah the Taeksphere ruined Gantz XD, So its great to have chapters now that don't include Tae chan. But I think there is 3 of these Aliens and one is TAE chan. She will rick roll Kei1.

    I wouldn't say it's necessarily filler, but when you hype up these impossible situations and then end them abruptly with "they just walked out of there" or "Fra has a magic GPS that can track Tae's DNA based on info in your memory" it's hard to take anything too seriously any more.

    I don't think any of this is filler.

    so far I'm enjoying every chapter.

    The fact that everyone is getting mad and genuinely hating the god-aliens shows that Oku IS getting an emotional response out of the reader.

    Everyone IS mad at seeing at least one of those people resurrected and discarded like trash, be it Old Man or Titz or Reika.

    So everyone feels just like Kurono does right now: Doesn't matter if you ARE God, we're taking you down.

    Some people might say being able to make the reader feel like the character is good writing.

    I liked Reika like I (forgive me on bringing up a shounen series..) Hinata. Both hot and had a cute crush on Kurono. I like the idea of Kurono a no body loser at school dating a celeb. But thats just a side skit from the plot I enjoy it but gantz is awesome cause of the fights with aliens. I love the the confusion they all had in the first 5 missions.

    Getting an emotional response by trolling the readers with bad writing is not to be confused with poignant writing. (Bleach is another example of this)

    Why is it bad writing ? Only because the aliens are talking about science and calling humans trash ? Or because they produced clones and killed them ? Whats the problem ?

    Alien: God does not exist.
    Humans: (Completely abandoning their faith) WAAAAAAH!!!!

    I don't believe in God, but I find it offensive that Oku writes everyone's faith as being that shallow.

    Alien: Life is meaningless. You are nothing but matter.
    Humans: (Ignoring the fact that the question of the meaning of life is the most fundamental question of humanity) WAAAAAAH!!!!

    Alien: Human beings are things.
    Humans: (Ignoring the fact that the ability to bring dead people back to life has already been shown and a better test would be to create an entirely new human from scratch with memories and personality) WAAAAAAH!!!!

    Well , I guess , most of the gantzers are just stupid . Just look at the persons who are usualy sent to the room . Pornostars , "gangster" , rapists , junkies , etc.

    Pretty sure Kei is going to live after he attacks the alien than come to reason. The aliens will send everyone on a final mission and if they can complete it than they will do anything that Kurono and co ask for.

    Welp, Kurono 2 had a good run.

    I wonder if the aliens know he's just a clone, and that's why they're taunting only him.

    I don't see any particular reason for the aliens to taunt kurono or anyone else for that matter. Even if they know kurono is a clone it wouldn't really make a difference to them based on what they have said so far. Its not like anything which kurono is wound change from the point of view of the aliens. In either scenario kurono would be just a thing to them. From their perspective it would be like discriminating between individual instances of mass produced appliances or two things that are exactly the same but in different factories.

    It would be interesting if these guys are convinced that humans have lives worth something and they react to it by annihilating humans who were revived or clones as they would be an affront to life.

    I read all of this manga in short span of time so maybe I'm more forgiving then some of you.

    Anyways, while the statements from the new aliens appear relatively banal and not entirely new it's understandable that it draws forth reactions so strong since it in some ways pretty much negates everything all the gantzers been through.

    I mean, they've been constantly struggling and suffering desperately trying to keep themselves alive (how many times have we not seen Kuruno, Kato or Kazo repeating to themselves that they must survive?) but my guess is that what they finally hear now is something that they've been trying to ignore for a long time (except, as others have mentioned above, in the case of Sakata) but it finally sinks in now when they hear it from a seemingly omnipotient alien and a time of fleeting respite.

    Or something like that.
