GANTZ

Recommended Posts

violence, horror, science-fic.
has anyone read it? i haven't finished it yet, but i think it's really good... in a twisted way. gantz27an01.jpgBasically, this is bout a 16-year-old high school student named Kurono Kei. He lives by himself in an apartment, has no friends, and is very selfish. Oh yes... he's also very perverted and wishes to have sex with every girl with gigantic breasts... o_O One day, Kurono meets his old classmate, Kato Masaru, on the subway platform. When Kurono and Kato try to help a man who has fallen on the subway tracks, they get decapitated. All of a sudden, their body parts begin to disappear, and both Kurono and Kato find themselves in a small room with a black sphere. It's as if the accident never happened. They also find many other people there, who supposedly had died too. Gantz, the black sphere, gives them these really cool high-tech weapons and suits. Their mission is to kill the aliens that the sphere shows them a picture of. Those who try to go home end up dying by the explosives that are planted in their brains, and therefore they are forced to carry out the missions within a time limit. Many die in each mission, and those who survive are allowed to go home--- well, until the next mission. This keeps going on and on, and points are given to those who manage to kill the aliens. No one knows who made this black sphere and who sent it. The only thing that the "chosen" people know is that it chooses who lives and dies. Some of the questions that keep recurring are: Is this a TV game show or is it reality? What is the true nature of the aliens and where did they come from? What is this world? Why can't people see them? Where did these weapons of superior technology come from? Who and what is Gantz? Who programmed or created this black sphere?

i like it a lot...i think it's pretty exciting. i guess my only gripes with it are that after awhile, i sometimes can't tell who is who and they don't explain much about what's going on. i wanna buy the dvds someday since they're uncut. watching the edited version of season 1 was the most painful thing ever.

^nah, i think everyone from that mission lived...which is kinda amazing. and one of those guys got 100 points...the guy with sunglasses(don't remember who he is...psychic guy maybe?). he chose to bring some other guy back but i don't know who it was. anyway, sorry if that's too much info lol.

i dont think the author has an ending volume for it yet. so far, they did not explain the origin of Gantz and the man in it. All we see so far are pretty much missions after missions.

i don't really like gantz.

it's like:

-are you over 40?

-are you a hot girl whose name is not reika?

-are you a male that has had any sort of emotional interaction with the protagonist?

-are you shy?

oh, well then you're dead.

not to mention they introduce all this stuff with hardcore samurai vampires and such, only to completely throw them away at some point. it's like you could start in the last 30 chapters, and you wouldn't be missing much.
