*** If these things were true, though, then the original Kei Kishimoto would have been teleported away or erased. The fact that she still existed proves that Gantz doesn't really follow through or erase the bodies.

** What's ''worse'' is the fact that the entire justification for the Shinjuku Massacre is phrased as if Gantz is out of people to choose from!

** Gantz does manage to get a ''couple'' of people who seem like they should be reasonably competent (most notably Tojo the sniper guy and JJ the karate master). It's just bad luck that their first mission (the Buddhist Temple) was the most deadly one in the series as far as the Tokyo team was concerned (Italy would have been worse if it had operated by the normal rules of "stay until all the aliens are dealt with," and Osaka ''probably'' would have been worse if they hadn't had the Osaka team as well).

* Episode 17 might be the biggest case of WhyDontYouJustShootHim I've ever seen. The two giant alien statues are standing still while a homeless man is getting beaten up by some thugs. The Gantz team are standing at a safe distance, all armed with guns. Why don't they all just open fire at the statues? It's infuriating to watch.

** GantZ makes the copy just before it thinks you will die, then teleports the dead body to god-knows-where (what should bother you is how it managed to delete Kurono's and Katou's body parts from the cellphone pics in the first chapter, since everyone notices that the bodies dissapear shortly after the accident).

** Rule 1: Gantz lies.

** Rule 1: Gantz lies.lies.
* The death rate in Japan is a bit over 9/1000 annually. The population of the Tokyo metropolitan area is over 13 million. Very conservatively, that means over 300 people per day die in Tokyo and environs. So okay, some of them are pretty old; let's say for the sake of argument that 90% of them are too old or otherwise unfit to be very effective if revived - not that that seems to bother Gantz much; he takes several people who are fairly old, a couple who are too young to be much more than a burden to the rest of the team, a ''dog'' and a '''panda''' (who, to be fair, did manage to earn 40 points offscreen somehow). That's still an average of 30 people a day for Gantz to choose from, and the best he can come up with out of that pool are the misfits we see?

* In the anime, why does the Gantz say that the Suzuki alien thing's catchphrase is "ha ha ha", when it should be "Yuzo-kun?"

**Gantz is, according to improvising from what the god/alien said in germany, effectively pulling from/manipulating the Akashic Record, the Universe's file storage system. this handily explains the cloning ability and where the bodies go (they're simply erased from history)

* What really annoyed me was the thoroughfare shooting scene. First, he guns down 387 people. '''''387'''''. What, did he activate the infinite ammo cheat before starting? More importantly, '''where the hell were the police?!''' You can't shoot 387 people in a public street with absolutely no interference from the police. It would have been a simple matter for a (Japanese equivalent of) SWAT van to pull into the road and unload a group of armored cops to kill him. Or even get a few snipers in position as he moves along. The special forces guys responded in a heartbeat to Nishi's school massacre, where were they when 20 times the number of people were being killed?
