People are just things guys.
Life is empty and meaningless & we are meaning making machines.
What's more to be said?
I wonder if those gantz aliens are even mortals at all...

I dont thing the purpose of the revived characters were based soley on who was a fan. and it was aimed strictly at Kei. each revived person represented parts of kei's maturity, if i may, over the course of the series. tits was revived, she was his firsts pair of breasts he ever saw for real. the tomb raider girl was the first person he had sex with. the old man was the first i believe to call kei a hero/leader. and began his maturity as the leader to practice so they could do survive and help people survive. so considering the end of the chapter with this in mind how else was he going to make kei act?
I think it fits Gantz's nihilistic theme pretty well. Kei, katou & everyone's reaction is kind of weak and anti-climatic. in fact gantz has been kind of boring for awhile now. This'll be a strange lead in for a huge fight/finale. It begs the question, what's the point anymore.
I got the impression that kei was more of a shot to kato. He also saw her naked as soon as kurono and saved her from being raped. To boot he did have feelings for her and were going to live together.
I don't see why everyone is complaining or overall so surprised about the gantzter's reactions. Don't the reactions make complete sense with what they have seen and have been told? A big deal of the issue is that perhaps they see the aliens as more than what they are (simply different lifeforms from humans) and think of them as actual divine beings. Still, even in the most optimistic scenarios they are an objectively more advanced race with far more intellect and perhaps comprehension of the universe itself. In either scenario it makes perfect sense that people would react the way they have as they have been told they are but soulless atoms with nothing to make them actual individuals. Not even extreme atheism suggests we are not actual individuals (from what I gather a big point of the whole thing is asserting your individuality, something which would be plain impossible and utterly pointless if the points the aliens are bringing are taken seriously) for that matter. So we have the gantzters in a very emotional moment at the climax of the way right after being on the verge of extinction and then aliens, whose mere presence invokes emotions so powerful in humans it causes them to cry with tears of blood, tell them there is no meaning to anything ever under no plausible idea or philosophy (mostly the point I brought up in an earlier post which can be summed up with the scenario of someone who rapes babies being objectively the same as the guy who saves the world from poverty, hunger and AIDS) and right then proceeds to revive people in front of anyone with random matter only to kill them to make a point. I don't see how the responses the humans there have given are anything but perfectly coherent with the extremity of the scenario they have been presented with. If anything what would have made more sense is that they react exactly like they did but sooner and also have attacked the aliens sooner.
Their reactions are coherent with the situation and I found it to be boring and anti-climactic. The gantzers look negative & pathetic.
I am wondering where it will go next though, after taking it this low.
that'd be cool if the gantzers lost and it became a new manga like planet of the apes.
