First off, interesting thread. I never considered one for him.
Well, I dunno...he suffered a lot during the Nuri arc. I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't make it through Katastrophe.
IMO, his only role in the story was to show the "gentle side" to the tough-as-steel Kaze. He barely smiles, yet Takeshi made him cry. I can imagine Takeshi dying and Kaze going bezerk. I mean, how do you expect a little guy like that to get 100 pts? He's never even held a Gantz weapon before!
I expect Takeshi to survive the Catastrophe somehow.
I always hoped that Gantz would continue after it, with Takeshi being the only survivor of the Tokio Team.
And after a time skip he would become the main character (yes! no more *Karuno).
Well, that's my hope...right now the catastrophe seems to be Reika living with Kurono.
True..very true. But maybe there could be a bigger point to the kid then just showing Kazes soft side? Also, Takeshis story was pretty sad. It shows how real GANTZ can be at times by showing what happens in everyday life.
lolz. I thought about that also..a time skip where Takeshi's the main character...hmmm...
@GAT-X252 - Karuno?? WTF?
