Think about this situation if it happen to you in real life. You just died in some way and the next thing you know, you're inside a strange room with a strange black ball and possibly some other random people you don't know. Everyone's freaking out, not knowing what's going on. Now in this case, what would you do?
Realistically, I think I would be completely flabbergasted. Knowing that I read this manga, I may just be in complete shock because I know what's going to happen. I'd then try to get myself together and warn the others so there's at least a chance that some of us can survive the battle. It may seem very typical, but chances are in this case, I'm the only person with the slightest amount of information on what may happen.
So, how do you think you guys would deal with this situation?
In my world I would be the leader of the team gaining more weapons and points than anyone, but in reality I'd be in complete shock, knowing the consequences of being a complete sadist. But I would do anything to survive, with my knowledge on the manga I'd last maybe... 7 games. And maybe 2/3rd's of the catastrophe. I would love to be in the Gantz team forever, but mental and physical pain would be over the top and thus me coming to a point of leaving or dying.
i would most likely rape the first woman I saw while I was invisible.
I'm assuming of course that I'm now in the gantz universe and can go invisible with the suits and stuff.
I always thought it was funny how rape was used so damned much in this story.
First thing that happened to kishimoto was that the dude tried to rape her
What the hell is with japanese people. Can't stop raping everyone XD
^Kliff: I really hope you are joking!
Well, I was implying as if this was in the real universe, not quite in Gantz's weird ass version of japan(isn't Japan's community much nicer than that?)
Since if it's the real universe, I'd assuming there's thousands of gantz teams out there too. Like how each Japanese region got its own team, I'd assume in this case maybe each state in the US or whatever got its own team in example.
So...I think secretly rapping someone is really out of the question lol.
It would make things easier... as long as you don't do it in front of your team you'll probably get away with it. Unless you're a massive fuck up or something.
Hard to go wrong with invisibility, super strength and the lock on feature of the X-gun :/
(or even the Y-gun if you like cocooning your victims)

That's the thing over there in Japan, rape is a big sell in the Japanese porn industry also that's what a lot of guys like over there. Girls in School uniforms raped, it's sick and upsetting but over there in Japan the women come 2nd. That's the thing I hate about Japan.
oooo. Then I would fake rape my girlfriend.
Oh yeah, in this univerise I also have a girlfriend XDDDDDDDD
THen I would pull a nishi and start killing mad innocent point. Just gotta keep my gun in a bag and IM coo.
I'd love the chance to just be a god among ants for a little.
There is no god anyway. So I have no need to fear anything of the sort.
I'll assume this world has no god just like in gantz.
May as well kill some innocent people on purpose, cause at some point we'd all aim for an alien, miss, and hit an innocent by stander.
I laughed my ass of so hard in the Oni mission when the gantzers were trying to shoot one of the aliens, and were just killing mad innocent people.
Or how one of the Oni aliens threw a car at Kaze, and instead of saving all the innocent people, he just dodged the car, and let it kill them all XD
Try not to be TOO self richeous guys. This is gantz we are talking about.

Kliff: Even though Gantz is fiction, there are barely any moments that I find funny. The violence that is shown there is there as a part of the story and rather shown as something negative. Gantz shows the dark side that is inside us.
Comments like that are exactly one of the reasons why Manga like that get a bad call. You seem not getting the message, you seem to read it just for the violence and porn.
On topic: If I wake up in the Gantz room with all the knowledge I had about Gantz...I seriously wouldn't know what do do.
The things I would like: The suit, bike and Katana(I like Katana)
What I would not like much: The missions, since it is always a fight for your life. And the deaths of my comrades.
The character I would like to be: Katou
The character I would most likely be: The Nerd
I would try to gain my 100Points and get my butt out!
Assuming it's Gantz as we know it, I'd probably bring a whole bunch of suits. New players always get fucked when they refuse to put it on. So at least they're available if they change their mind. Then I'll find a quiet corner and change into it. Won't do it in the apartment because I don't want people seeing me naked.
Once I'm ready to go I'll just follow the group and lock onto things with the X-gun. Try and keep my distance. I would probably act like Reika without the first aid stuff.
Same, if I woke up in Gantz I would prob keep quiet but freaking out in my head thinking of whats going on. I would look for the most not shady and calm person in the room and ask whats happen here and why the hell is there a black ball in the middle. If I wasn't given any information I would just try to speak to others about what happen to them. When the ball plays music I would focus onto it and then look it all over once it says a message and opens up. Doing so I would see a box with my name on it, I would then feel like I have been forced to do something considering their is some box with my name on it and there are these weird guns and a message saying kill this alien. I would take it all serious but prob think if its just a dream and if its real or not. I would tell the others to grab their box because it could be important to keep on us.
Then in the mission I would think how weird it is how we are transferred then start to think I better brace myself. I would follow the others but keep my distance and watch my back then when they all encounter aliens I would look from afar in shock and fear. I would get abit closer if anything happens and try to shoot the gun but make sure I'm not too close if it didn't work I would keep trying on a wall or something near me.
But if their was a person whos been in this before I would watch him and keep close to him/her.
If making it out I would take the gun and suit home with me after thinking what was with the 0-5 points 95 to go till done. I would be shocked again when I get put their the second time and think shit this is going to happen again and again. I would tell everyone what would happen and plead with them to listen, if they didn't listen I would say well this is whats going to happen in 5 minutes once it does grab your suits that I am holding onto. After that I would say okay I know your life has turn around tonight but tomorrow lets all meet up and talk about it and prepare for the next mission.
Once I got 100 points and saw that there is more than freedom I would pick to get a powerful weapon to make things easier for me, I wouldn't pick to go free after getting use to the missions and knowing that there is a war between us and aliens. I would fear being free and then attack by a alien with no weapons or teammates to help.
I would use the invisible cloak to my advantage outside of the missions, I would want to steal to make lots of money but my pride would prob make me not do that because I don't believe in stealing. But....I would prob use it to perv on hot girls getting dressed or having showers XD my downside lol.
I would prob do what Cherry and his GF did and look for bad people to beat up well to get them put in jail or something, being invisible or having my gantz suit under my clothes would help.
off topic, the only thing I have thought funny in gantz was kurono's immaturity outside of missions and the "HOLY CRAP ITS REIKA, HER BOOBS ARE HUGE!" Plus the budda preexist and Kuwabura raping Nurai mouth lol.
gantz's violence is hilarious.
its a new generations Riki-oh or Ichi-the killer.
Well, those are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more violent than Gantz. But still, its the closest thing.
violent manga's get a bad rap because the media tries to place blame on them for the increased amount of violence in our society.
Not because some people laugh at it.
The main message from gantz is that theres no god, and theres no reason to be good, other than your own personal will.
Nishi is a dick cause he can be, Kei is a hero cause he can be.
Gantz isn't that deep of a manga buddy >__>
If we were all in the gantz universe we would acquire PTSD immediately, and no longer be able to function in regular society.
Like ACTUAL soliders in REAL life.
I wonder how I would have died though in order to get to the room?
I'd like to think it was something cool, like getting a car thrown at me by a monster because a gantz person didn't care enough to save my life.

The characters are often funny. I don't think the violence is though. I could kind of see how some of it could be seen to be funny, but I think the tone is very different from something like Ichii the Killer. Gantz is a lot more serious and the characters are more meaningful (at least to me). I don't find it funny when they get hurt. That's not to say I'm against the violence or anything. It's Gantz ffs! I just don't treat it as the joke that you do.
