So I was looking through Gantz for about the 898247923th time, and I was paying more close attention to the expressions on the characters faces.
Now I could try and track down my favorites but I have too many, so I'll just use an example from the most recent chapter:
The panel in the bottom right
I don't know why. I just love the expression on his face.
My favorite panel hasn't happened yet, and probably never will. Here it is. Remember, this one is a FAKE.
That would be so awesome.
And I could tell that it was fake. xD;;
Nice topic. =)
I think this panel is, in one word, epic.
The one at the bottom:
My respect for him after this mission increased a lot. It's a shame that he doesn't want to be revived, he was one of the most interesting gantzers out there.
@George: nice skills you've got there. xD
Just for the sake of awessomeness. He really looks like some evil sarcastic little bitch. Not to mention the importance of this panel to the overall plot! (one word... guess which?)

I love kei's expression here: http://www.mangavolume.com/index.php...z-1&page_nr=12 lol, it's just perfect the way he's trying not to notice kato. facial expressions are probably Oku's strongest point.
The bottom one
It always makes me smile(i mean evil smile) when i read these few chapter. nishi is simple awesome and damn.. i miss these old days
I liked this one, too.
The panel of ryou.
The crosshatching makes it look cool.
@Distant Thunder: Thx. It took me a couple of hours to do it. It wasn't perfect, but it was pretty good if I do say so myself.
@Amnesiac: That panel of Reika vs. Nura-zilla is awesome!
Here's another Reika classic I like. Check out the bottom panel.
Here's a real fave from the early issues. It's Nishi at his best. From his viewpoint, it looked like the onion alien was about to slice and dice Kei. It was the one and only instance where we actually saw the little homicidal maniac actually do something to help another person.
Here are my favorite covers. I've noticed that Oku loves to use them to show something he has planned for the distant future. This one was before Oku even introduced Reika into the series.
It was great foreshadowing. But Oku's version of foreshadowing is to show something that's going to happen, but make it in such a way that we are really surprised when it actually happens; when we saw Reika in that condition during the Oni mission, it was a shapeshifting alien that had taken her form.
And this one is the only time we've seen Nishi's Gantz suit. He really looks creepy here.
Notice that it looks a little different from anybody else's, even the suits that Kei, Katou and Kishimoto were seen wearing in their covers just before and after it. The very fact that it is different may just be creative license, or it may be foreshadowing something that we'll discover about Nishi in the future.
I wish we could see more action from Nishi, lately he has been offscreen for most of the time.
Nishi's look in the first one is awesome, he really had no idea the suit protected from x-gun shots.
Heh, Kurono was freaking out completely like Inaba before the last mission. x) (last panel)
You're a beautiful girl and your pants are on so tight that when you stand just right I can see it all
Your cameltoe, it looks so right so baby let it show.
