@Zehaha: Kurono survived on blind luck lol. Grabbing onto the alien as it flew away? Yeah nice one.
Next mission, dead. Next mission, broke both his arms and ran away in defeat. Next mission, killed a couple of nothing aliens and nearly died multiple times against the boss. Oni mission, failed again even after the Psychics blinded the guy. Italy, dead.
Not the best track record to be honest. Katastrophe? One died and one is suddenly the God of War.
Too bad we never saw Host Samurai in a GANTZ suit. We all wanted that to happen as well. Would have been awesome if he used it after the Italy Mission, that is if GANTZ was still doing missions, which is what the entire manga was about before this Alien Invasion.
Is it really gonna end in 3 more chapters?
Like I said before, the ideal ending for GANTZ, IMO is for Kurono and team confront the God Aliens to request the world to be rebuilt with everyone's memory erased/people revived and GANTZ/Alien tech gone to never be in the hands of humans again. Last panel is of Kurono and Kato in the subway the bum falls on the tracks and they vaguely get their memory back and ends.
@Otaku400: The Italy aliens weren't any weaker than Gonde. They have very high speed and some very special attacks that ripped Gantz tech apart. Gonde is perhaps even faster and has the added benefit that he can quickly alter his position at any time (e.g. during the zaibatsu raid he was coming straight at the Kei's, but when he noticed the H-gun go off above his head he completely changed momentum in an instant and launched himself backwards). On the other hand his attacks can't beat the sword (though it can easily squish a suit).

@Shion Izumi: 3 chapters doesn't sound right, but I could see it ending soon.
And ew at that ending lol. Almost as bad as 'it was all a dream'.
The Italy Alien mission really seemed tougher than these Giants. That mission was utter chaos with little statues ripping everyone apart. I still don't think we've even seen the final boss of that mission, as everyone was getting transferred before the David statue battle with Kurono took place. Something tells me that the boss of the mission got killed before the transfer. Even the small fodder aliens were tearing up Oka level players left and right.

As for izumi, I would think he would had had a pretty good chance during the temple mission. He was a keen fighter who didn't hesitate to go for a kill. The only alien in the mission which would have posed a risk for him would be the last one and at large the only real threat that alien posed was the laser. It would be difficult but even a first timer gantzter managed to melt away half his body... And izumi does not give enough shits to care about it sounding like someone he knows. Not to mention that plenty of people did manage to sneak up on it so I doubt it would be an alien which nishi would have been unable to land a hit on at least.
Following that, volume 37 will cover from chapter 376 until 383. If it's true what Oku's wife says and it ends with that volume...maybe there could be an extra chapter, but it's most likely that the final chapter will be longer than normal one. Who knows?
Next mission, dead yeah, that's before meeting Tae, and he was still being a little bitch back then thinking just about having sex with that chick. Next mission, killed the aliens before the annoying one following him afterwards, and still killed him anyway with the help of the police, that was annoying Kurono back then. Oni mission, he was the only one to never give up, NEVER. All of them nearly shat in their pants if it wasn't for Kurono attacking him non stop, why ? Because he didn't want to leave Tae alone
Don't talk about Kurono 2, that guy was a pathetic copy anyway, completely lost between Tae and Reika... Italy mission, nearly everyone was fucked there, they survived by luck honestly, the aliens were insanely strong, stronger than Gonde's race, just one touch and you're done for, I haven't seen any alien tougher than those honestly, with the exception of Osaka boss, he was way too nasty with his regeneration
Also, how can we be sure Gonde is stronger than the previous alien ? Are we sure he's stronger than Oni alliens boss ? Osaka boss ? Italy aliens ?
I'm not hating on Nishi and characters like him, I actually liked him a bit, especially during the school stuff which was quite hilarious honestly, but again, a guy like him being the strongest wouldn't make sense at all... He's selfish, he's a teen trying to make himself look tough... Humans get stronger by facing dangers, not by acting tough and sneaky, exactly what Kurono has been doing during all this time

Well, i think the statues of Rome had the special ability of nullifying gantz defensive tech, not that they were so strong (they were, but chibi alien level strong) that they could just bypass the suit defensive abilities, i think the same about the bone aliens.
What i mean is that Gonde could probably beat that Oceanus statue in terms of strenght...maybe...
How can you doubt the awesomeness of kurono? This guy survived dinosaurs shooting meteors out of their mouths without his suit. He killed a pack of vampires without any real weaponry and without full memory of how to fight. This guy is well rounded and very good at adapting to his opponent. That's the reason he usually beats them if he's not stopped early. He uses his head instead of just rushing in like an idiot.
@Zehahaha: I can't believe that without Tae Kei 2 was completely useless.
Can't deny Kei was critical to the success of many missions but it wasn't at all because of his exceptional skill or talent. On his own he'd be extremely dead by now (which is why it's so hard to believe he's winning against Gonde). Yes he's pretty good, but can he handle anything on his own? Not really. Most of the time it is his ability to inspire the others to help him out that allows him to survive.
About Gonde... well he's obviously stronger than the Oni boss considering he can grab and squish a regular guy in an instant. Oni is perhaps faster but he can only go one direction lol. Straight! So I'd say Gonde is more dangerous in his agility.
Compared to the Italy aliens... well Gonde is extremely difficult to hit, even though the statues were often much smaller than humans. That's saying something I think. I would say he's more dangerous HOWEVER he needs to work around the Gantz sword whereas the statues could just break the damn thing.

@9tails: Well it wasn't that special. Dinosaurs would have killed him if it wasn't for the Old man and Izumi coming to the rescue. And while not usually a weapon that torch thing he put together was in effect more powerful than any Gantz tech against the vamps, so there's that.
TBH he has only used his head once (against the vamps). Everything else has been derp I AM THE GREATEST I CANT DIE

It was a team effort to take the Brontosaurus and if the old man didn't show up with the bike Kurono would have died, but yeah he was pretty good. Suit doesn't really matter unless you get hit. Not too big a deal tbh.
