Katou is the best developed character in the manga. And overall tough
Gantzer. He's a better leader than Kurono, and Katou just makes you
want to like his character and root for him.
But that's te whole point. Katou didn't need to change for the better
like evryone else. He was all ready a character and developed from the beginning. Katou is like a great white shark, never having to evolve,
he perfect how he is.
Katou does need to change. There's no way you can go through such an experience and not change. He died for fuck sake. I think Katou does need to change. He's still living with this delusion that he can save everybody. You guys are right, Katou probably can't become a better person, he's already such a moral character. Developing is not always about becoming a 'better person.'
That is his character development. He is a cross between SuperMan
and Captain America. He is the moral conscious of the group.
You want him be edgier like SpiderMan or Kurono. Or Lawless like
Nishi or BatMan. He can't that's not him. Just like Captain America.
Katou is good the way he is.
Reika's come to learn that keeping yourself alive is hard enough. Looking out for others is suicidal. Especially when the two guys you trust to take care of the bosses have both been cut down by a Vampire with a regenerating tie. Katou is a very brave character to have continued to put himself at risk for others. He's already died once.

Katou was already a strong character. He didn't need to change for
the better like Kurono or Reika. Gantz did the opposite to Katou,
it made Katou want to save more people. Katou is #1. Sakata even
admit that Katou should've been leader not Reika.
American SuperHeroes don't suck. They are the gold standard.
@JediKnight: Gold standard? Lol. Half of them wear their underwear inside out, and the rest of them have semi-retarded costumes. Japanese heroes are way better overall in my opinion.
Katou's better than most American superheroes in my opinion.
As you said @ georgemarvin - he's Honest, loyal, trustworthy, heroic. He's the guy who Kei looks up to, a real superman...But what I hate in him is when he starts to feel sorrow for aliens...
@black lagoon - You're right. By now he should have realized that if he doesn't kill the aliens, he's gonna end up turning into minced meat.
@BrazilianGantzer - man , he is pathetic instead to kill the alien he try to capture him and that way go have a drink and have some kind of conversation...
did anyone else notice that Katou's only words in Chapter 293/294 were "Kei-chan!" ?
man, Oku must have been lazy to find something more to say for him
