I was thinking more like most of the aliens are refugees from an interstellar war. The shape shifting oni boss and Nuri would be a dominant race, maybe the winning or losing side of the war, but the onion, tanaka, shorty, kappa, maybe even 1000 arms are just refugees, third-rate species who were caught in the middle of a battle between two super powers. Like the Vietnamese caught in the middle of the cold war between the U.S. and Russia.
Not all members of a species are exactly the same; an accountant and a pro wrestler are both human, but the wrestler could tie the accountant into a pretzel. Likewise, the shapeshifting Oni boss had all of the same powers and abilities as Nuri, except it never used the laser eyes, but it just didn't have as much endurance. There were dozens of similarities, too many to overlook. And Nuri was sacrificing thousands of his own minions at the beginning of the mission. I would guess that the reason would have been to gain power from the sacrifices. For a shapeshifter, all of those raw materials would be like a huge power boost.
Their could have been like a mass migration of aliens to earth due to a war in space or something.
It could be that Gantz was actually some millitary project that was experimenting with Nanomachines, and something bad happened, releasing the experiments, forcing them to use the orbs to bring people back to life to kill them off.
The Onion and Tanaka would be early versions of the nanomachines, while Nurai and the Oni would be the newer, more powerful versions. The 1000 arms could be an experiment to copy the Nurai's powers without the actual use of Nanomachines.
surely if the military did release such a thing, they would have trained personel to take them out, why rely on random people being transportated to some room.
Maybe they didn't expect them to get out? Or they don't want to waste their own men when they can just get others to do it for them.
well if the military can copy people via gantz why not just make 1000 copies of one person to take em out? also why risk civilians finding out that your using civilians. And the government isnt stupid enough to not think about this theyre pretty close but not this much.
I don't ever recall being told anything about the government in Gantz. For all we know, the government could be butterdog. The real life Japanese government probably has nothing to do with the government in Gantz, so there is no way you could call them any degree of stupid.
They might not make 1,000 copies due to the fact that they don't want 1,000 copies of one person running around after each mission was finished. If the people found out that the government was using them, which wouldn't change much, they are being used anyways, the government could just erase their memories or blow their heads up.
no I wasnt insulting the real life japanese goverment just stating that a steretypical goverment in a tv show/manga isnt as bright as they should be, then again I could be wrong. Secondly we dont know how gantz works exactly we know he makes copies but what happens to the originals? if gantz could dispose of them why not dispose of kishimoto but leave her there? If he can blow up anyone's heads why not just attack the aliens straight why involve civilians in this? he does know where the aliens are (radars). So many questions so little answers, i like the idea of them being "aliens" though a human conspiracy would just add 1000 more questions while we can believe what we hear about aliens since we have nothing to compare them too.
