Description
Somewhere in Tokyo, there is a room. In that room is a black sphere. Periodically, people who should otherwise have died are transferred to the room. There, the sphere gives them special suits and weapons, and sends them out on a mission to kill aliens here on Earth. While these missions take place, the rest of the world is largely oblivious to them. These missions are lethal--few participants survive them. The sphere calls the shots, and it's not the slightest bit nice. Its name... Gantz.

Gantz starts immidiately within the first chapter with the plot. The artwork is great at all times. The only thing I have to nag about is the characters' height - place Kurono in front of his other friend (forgot his name ... ) and you'll think Kurono is just standing 'far behind' his friend. Other than that, it's all action - no room for character development (only MUCH later in the series does it start delving into Kurono's character).

If you like gore and aliens, then this is a must read.

The artwork and story are both top notch. The main character Kurono, is a bit of wuss in the begining but he turns into a real bada$$ later. Definitely on my top 10.

Excellent art, great action, out of sight alien monster designs, some fan service. Not much character development, but with action scenes that beautiful who needs it?

Well, Gantz manga is just superbly drawn. Dark, horificly misterious, intriguing and quite addictive. It features a lot of action, a bit of characterisation and an awsome mystery. Who is Gantz? Or what is it? The plot is straight forward, it's about an afterlife, presented thorugh a confusion that protagonists go through like throgh a nightmare of undefined anticipation.

It's really addictive. I read the first 16 volumes in 2 days. It has everything -character development, awsome fights, nice nudity. I highly recomend it.

This is one of the most addictive mangas out there. The battle of Kei Kurono's survival, is just so great that I read from ch 1 to ch 208 in one day, tho the chapters are quite short which is a small minus. You never know when one of your favourite characters in the room may die. :D

Quite addictive, with twisted and unexpected plot that left you wondering, and asking for more. The alien design were kinda odd in the early chapters (except the copied one) but its getting better. If you don't mind girls with oversized jugs, read GantZ.

I read up through whats currently out... I have to say it definitely is interesting. The whole concept is kinda absurd; but that's what motivates me to read it; oh, and because Kurono is a bad ass. Anyway, I don't like how the chapters are so short. I think this series does have a lot of potential though.
