Anyone else wondering what the hell happened to Kato, Kaze, or Takeshi?
I'm disappointed that 60+ chapters later, we haven't seen Sebastian or the vampires (I just have to know what happened to...
The ball is inert. :XD :XD :XD
Otherwise, great chapter.
Hopefully there will be more plot development concerning the other characters and not just more Kei and Tae.
Kind of depressing to come back after a month and a half and only be a single chapter behind. :(
That said, while the progression feels extremely slow, I started reading Gantz while the Nuri arc...
Should we be expecting 321 in the next few days?
I have no idea what the release schedule is now. :s
Seems more like a way to conveniently relinquish plot armor for a bit, shocking readers, then to throw it right back on.
I think Gantz would have been far more shocking if the protagonists stayed...
Saying she was lucky was both an ironic and true statement. By that, I mean she won't have to suffer anymore, unlike everyone else.
Really? We all die anyway.
And with violent aliens to...
I think her mom is the lucky one..
While she may be dead, she's also not terrified and psychologically damaged from all she's witnessed.
IF the humans survive this, the effects of surviving the...
Physically, none of these people stand out or have similar features.
If they are looking for other genes, say one that promotes a certain behavior, then they must be looking for very whiny humans.
Has it been two weeks already?
Haha, my summer is flying by.
Reminiscent of the holocaust films that the History channel shows from time to time and the ending scene of...
Izumi coming back would be kind of pointless..
The guy has been out of the game for quite some time, and look how much has changed since then.
While strong, Izumi doesn't appear to be as...
Izumi chapter? This is the first I've heard of this.
Also, Gat, this has been bugging me for a while: what is your avatar from? D:
Why is there a naked man behind Kurono in the top panel on page 10?
Nice to see some variety in the aliens, although, maybe I missed it, but where did those ant-like aliens go after Tae ran...
I think Kurono had a lot to do with that.
I mean, the guy had Nishi revived to increase the group's chances of survival.
Plus he's just one of those characters that influence others highly; I'll...
Lol if the alien's head explodes the minute he starts talking about the invasion.
That would be fitting, knowing Oku and all.
As long as we don't have another Kuwabara (Osaka) on our hands, I'm fine with this. :p
Interesting that they were able to take a prisoner.
Obviously this means that the aliens care about...
The more I think about it, the more I feel like the Gantz-man serves as a catalyst to provoke Oku's nihilistic themes in Gantz.
You died in a mission?
Great, you can be brought back should...
Have you guys ever read any of Oku's other works?
His endings, if you can even call them that, are awful.
Gantz is his, and I believe he has acknowledged this, one-hit-wonder.
Don't get me...
To be honest, I only read the quick translation and skimmed over the raw.
When things slow down, I'll re-read Katastrophe and it won't seem to disjointed.
But that could be true: it could be...
Doesn't he specifically ask for just the arms to be sent?
Something along the lines of, "That will be all I need" or something similar..
Sounds like the Oku was just trying to convey what an...
It's fairly obvious Katou is Oku's favorite.
Don't expect him to go anywhere soon: massive plot armor incoming.
I must have missed it.. what's the date for the next chapter's release?
I'm just going to be blunt: Katastrophe isn't anything like what I expected.
And I mean that in a negative way.
Anyone else feel this way or is it that my expectations are just too high?...
Looks like the infiltration mission turned into a suicidal bum-rush.
Still no Nishi yet.
Oku is setting Tae up for something; probably death, but that seems too predictable.
I love the...
Kei2 has shown more character development then Kei1 has in the past 150 chapters.
He's also the more mature of the two.
I don't know how or why, but you notice it in his actions, body-language,...
In the anime, Nishi said his father worked for the Japanese government.
Then the old politician says he recognizes the name Nishi, and I believe he mentions a certain department of bureaucracy that...
I appreciate that Oku doesn't spend an entire chapter explaining why there are two Kurono's to the rest of the group.
A few frames of body language were all that was needed.
No need for a huge...
I really hope you're not expecting a happy ending.
The series probably won't end with a cliffhanger, but you can count on something completely ambiguous.
Oku has a penchant for ending chapters...
Post-traumatic stress disorder?
Those kids are only 14-15 and they just witnessed the destruction of their city, school, and the death of thousands of people.
The mind is mysterious in the ways...
It looks like Oku is going to actually get somewhere with this arc.
Anyone else notice a slight change in the art style recently?
I'm not entirely sure that the whole scenario with Sebastian/the autistic girl wasn't Oku saying "Hey fuckers, why can't you just enjoy art at face value?"
Sebastian seems too much like a...
Yes, the Oni was more autonomous than any other alien we've seen.
The Oni alien(s) did not have any sort of omnipotent powers or any sort of intellectual abilities beyond that of any of...
These chapters are frightening as fuck.
I'm not one who is easily moved by imagery or words, but the hopelessness of the situation is violent upsetting.
I can't name one other manga I've heard...
I would laugh my ass off if Gantz was simply what Kurono saw in his mind during those last few seconds as his head flew through the air after he died.
Of course, this Gantz|Minus, and Kurono's...
Obviously, Gantz couldn't teleport a potential 350,000 Gantzers into outer-space.
For one, I doubt Gantz has any power left to do that.
And secondly, there is no oxygen in space. They would die.
You and me both, haha.
I can't help but wonder why Katastrophe is taking place.
What did humans ever do to warrant such a devastating attack?
The technology we are seeing is far to similar to...
I really hope the next chapter advances the plot a little.
The last two chapters, while necessary, seem a little lacking in substance.
Honestly, I don't know what Tokyo team can do.
As long as Oku doesn't pull an Evangelion on us, I don't really have a preference to how it ends.
For stylistic continuity, Oku will probably drop an emotional bombshell on us.
Hmm.. I didn't notice this the first time around but..
On this page, http://www.mangatoshokan.com/read/gantz/25/305/8, notice before the hammer-mech shoots the beam, he lets out some sort of...
These past two chapters have blown me away.
Oku's art direction is honestly frightening.
I'm not the kind of person who is easily perturbed, but the design on the mechs scares the shit out...
Well that was NOT the ending I expected..
I thought for sure everyone but Nishi and Izumi died.
The part about the aliens prophesying Kurono seems a little far-fetched, but it is a decent...
He's not that ballsy.
Kurono didn't kill Katou because Kishimoto loved him, did he?
In a way, that sort of makes sense as to why the Vampires knew Izumi.
Both the Yakuza and the Vampires are elitist thug/criminal groups who have no trouble killing innocent people nor the guilty. ...
Glad to see the artist is at least trying to keep the characters consistent.
Kudos to him/her.
I honestly wouldn't mind editing/proofing the chapters.
If you can't find anyone up for the job, I'll take it on.
Gantz|Minus is only slightly interesting to me as I/we have no idea if it is considered canon or not, but I would like to read a summary of whats going on at the very least.
I can't follow this whole idea of aliens being forced into the same situation as the Gantzers.
In every situation we've seen, the aliens have either been dormant (Buddha), or attempting to adapt...
That's because Katou had been dead for well over 100 chapters at the time, and Izumi had/has a very strong following as a character (see: character poll).
Plus, it builds tons of anticipation the...
I disagree with the street light response.
Look at the height of the shadow.
The way it is drawn, it appears to be BEHIND the skyscraper.
The skyscraper has to be at LEAST 100 stories...
This is the image GreatestGantzer85 is referring to:
Very, very nice find here.
Hopefully this will spark some conversation in this dead...
@gkrewz: yeah, but does Oku consider this canon, or a fun little side-story to keep Gantz fans hooked?
We haven't seen or heard from Izumi OR Nishi as of yet.
That's pretty much it, I guess.
