Gantz is basically about a couple of kids (high school) die (dont worry, thats not a spoiler) and after they die they wake up in a room with many more people. In the middle of the room is a big black ball called Gantz, and basically Gantz puts them all in a game. Usually the game consists of something to terminate or something. Anyway, if they win in the game they get to go back to their normal life, but if they lose they die (for real die).


Well not too long ago I read this series , and after reading it I can saftly say it is in my personal top 5 favorite mangas. Have any of you guys read it? what do you think about the series? And did anyone see the anime? I didnt, but was the anime any good?

The reason i make this thread in the first place is because the sequal to Gantz (Gantz: 2nd Phase) came out in Japan about a month ago, but I havnt had a chance to read it yet. If anyone else has maybe they could tell me a little about it (without spoilers is possible). And I think all of you should check out the series, it is awsome.

I've only seen the first two DVD's of the anime, which only amounts to four episodes and the plot hasn't really developed, yet, but it's extremely gory, quite possibly one of the goriest animes I can recall seeing in some time. I plan to continue watching the series eventually after I finish some other series first

The anime is a hidious betrayal to the manga, the anime has no story in it, it actually cuts off right before the story can start developeing(the Tiny alien arc), and i do belive that Gantz is evil, the black ball that is, firstly its Black, the bad color, you know, secondly the thing it did to Kuronos girlfriend, pure evil, ohh and heres a preview for ya, i dont think its much of a spoiler, it does seem that the gantz team is visible to normal humans again...Anyway i really dislike that the manga suffers from such a lack of pace, it takes them forever to cough up some kind of plot twist, and its mostly action, but still the manga was something special and i cant wait till all of the 2nd phase is scanlated.

I believe it, the anime was probably the goriest I've ever seen so I would expect the manga to be about on the same level

Fellow Gantz lovers.

YAY!

I try to upload the anime, but I had to remove it because it was licensed and rated M.

Gantz is on my top ten. It's only weakness is the pacing. It gets really hard to watch them secondguess their plans for 3 eps, but when they move it's always intense. I hope the show can live up to the manga(doubt it though).
