Gantz ended...your thoughts
(34 posts, 7830 views) Posted: 857d 17h, 43m ago by Aadieu in Gantz

Reread the last chapter _carefully_. Who lives, who dies is entirely UNKNOWN. That's the subtle genius of it.

Quote from aagcnet
I wonder what the guy that started this thinks about berserk after it went J.R.R Tolkien mode.

Sheeeeeet.... ANYTHING is better than that boooring, bland, snail-paced, shounen+gore BL-sprinkled-with-yaoi of the Golden Age arc.

Is Ubel Blatt Harem?..
(33 posts, 14137 views) Posted: 859d 3h, 54m ago by Aadieu in Übel Blatt
No... not that much for Koinzell. Though it DID look to be heading that way ages ago, back when he was getting crowded by three chicks in bikini bottoms. Seems like that was just done to show his magnetic personality or heroic auro or something.

Now, It HAS harem ...

Live-Action Gantz Films

No. No. And no.

The anime was pretty faithful to the manga and kept the mood, just the ending was different... and even taht because it was made 10 years ago - when the manga wasn't anywhere near done.

The movies changed EVERYTHING - age ...

Why is manwha so much better than manga?

OP: ...seriously?!

Hmm. Honestly? I don't know jack about manwha (compared to my manga experience at least).

It certainly suffers from "confusing name syndrome" as someone previously mentioned, in the eyes of a European manga junkie. J ...

Quote from Gradonil_Ral
but the authors clearly stated that the invasion arc was the 'last stage/phase'. If they already reached an end of the invasion, then yes, there will be no more Gantz.

Yep, that arc's pretty much done.

Anyone know if it's the Tokyo Team storyline only, the end of all Gantz mangas entirely, or a total franchise retirement confused

If there's more to come, hopefully it's manga or anime, and not that live action crap --- all those attempts by the writers to sh ...

Let's be a little original (although these answers are true):

2. USOTSUKI PARADOX - indeed, a Bord ...
