北条 政信

放課後、銀座をブラブラしていたが、ストーカーのサダコから逃げるため友人のバイクを借りる。
しかしサダコを後部座席に乗せたまま発車してしまい、首都高で居眠り運転に巻き込まれ死亡。GANTZ部屋に二人そろって転送される。

最初は事態が飲み込めず、戦闘にも協力的ではなかったが、加藤の言葉にうごかされ田中星人と戦闘。

2匹を仕留める活躍を見せ初回のミッションながら10点を獲得。しかしGANTZの採点により「ホモ」というあだ名が表示され、性的指向が明らかになってしまう。

2度目のミッションは羅鼎院でのあばれんぼう星人・おこりんぼう星人との戦い。はじめから協力的に戦闘に参加するも、最後は千手観音の前に、サダコとふたりで無惨に戦死。

「おまえそんな顔だったのか」
死ぬ間際になってサダコとはじめて向き合った北条。

サダコとの最後のキスは、女性とする初めてのキスでもあった。

奥先生:談

ぱつきんの稲森とか、稲葉もそうなんですけど、ただ単に男前を入れた方がいいかなと考えました。
男前なのにホモって面白いかなと。

MASANOBU HOJO

Hojo was wandering calmly around the Ginza after school, when he was suddenly pursued by his stalker named Sadayo, and he borrowed his friend’s motorcycle to escape.
Unfortunately, he started to drive off, and Sadayo was holding onto him, and he wound up getting in a wreck — and dying — while not paying attention to his driving.
They were both transported to the GANTZ room.

Initially, both of them had no idea what was going on, and hence, weren’t very cooperative in the beginning.
However, spurred by the words of Kato, they changed their mind and helped in the fight against the Tanaka aliens.

Hojo successfully hunted down two aliens in the first mission and got 10 points.
And, his name was shown by GANTZ not as Hojo, but Homo, which also wound up letting everyone know his sexual orientation, as well as his score from the mission.

The second mission was a fight against the Violent Alien and the Tempered Alien at the Ratei Temple.
Though Hojo and Sadayo fought cooperatively from the start, they ended up killed by the Thousand-armed Kannon Alien.
“So, that’s what you look like,: uttered Hojo, finally seeing Sadayo's face for the first time, right before his death.

His last kiss with Sadayo was his first kiss, ever, with a woman.

I just thought it’d be cool to put in some cool-looking dudes, in addition to Inaba and the blonde-haired Inamori.
