Lets use this thread to discuss all the vampires past and present, and discuss what we think their motives are, seeing as we know so very little about where they come from and why they side with the aliens.
A few facts (Please add to the list)
1) they first appeared after the Dino mission.
2) They hate the Gantz team and side with the aliens.
3) Their hang out is a club were they conduct fights, lure in humans to suck their blood, and discuss business.
4) they were successful in killing Kei and Izumi.
5) at this point in the story 2 vamps. "Host samurai" and "Killbill" are members of the gantz team.
6) Akira Korono was also a vampire, although it is still unknown how he became one.
7) Vampires have tiny nano machines in their blood. If a human gets these into his blood by accident in the case of Akira, or on purpose in like likely case of Killbill they become vamps also.
Equipment: Coming soon

You should also probably add that Akira was a Vampire, and that Oku considers the vampires to be aliens.
think it was mentioned in an interview but I could be wrong. Also I think the reason for hating gantz is that some time ago there was a hunt on em, and they befriended the aliens cuz the enemy of their enemy is their ally
The clearly think that the hunters are also known as Vampire Hunters.
"Also I think the reason for hating gantz is that some time ago there was a hunt on em"
Were do people here this stuff? Its interesting is true. I read this manga over and over many times. How do i miss this stuff? If its all from the infamous gantz manul it really needs to be translated. Oh god please. LOL
Read chapter 163 again. It begins the vampire story and shows that Izumi has fought them before.Quote:
I see. Thanks for that george.
The vampires also have some pretty sharp suits, they might even grant some sort of power like the Gantz suits, we already know that they are able to repair themselves since Hikawa managed to regenerate his tie after it was cut by one of those crazy samurai dudes.
You should include in the list information
(i)about their weapons (swords and guns)which can grow from their body,
(ii) about the sunglasses and contact lenses that enable them to see the gantz team even when they change their wavelength.
(iii)that they are vulnerable to light and that they need to take some drugs to be able to walk under the sun.
(iv)about the nanorobots in their bodies that gave them their powers
Also Killbill was once human(compare this page with this one ) This means that the vampires have the ability to turn normal humans into vampires(probably by injecting the nanorobots in their blood). Akira probably got the nanorobots in his body by accident. Hopes it help.

The vampires are supposed to be vulnerable to light but I'm pretty sure Akira took a walk during the day, he shouldn't have been able to unless blood has to be consumed in order for the transition from human to vampire to take place.
He was still becoming a vampire at that point. He found the eczema on his back and was drawn to the seminar, but didn't know what was happening. The guy at the podium said it takes several weeks for the nanites to take over.
I wonder how much the vamps(at least the higher ups) know about the katastrophe thing, i doubt that most of em kno it even exists, but there should be a few that are the leaders and in direct contact with some high up aliens. Come to tihnk of it some rookie vamps and hunters are in the same position, the only difference is you have to die to get gantz powazz
