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 and few participants survive them. The sphere calls the shots and it's not the slightest bit nice. Its name: Gantz.

The way this manga is set up is like a fricken rollar coaster, right from the beginning it throws you down at full speed. of course at the beginning you cant throw much light on character development since there is very little interaction between the characters verbally, but as the manga moves on and after you've all faced the carnage of the chapter dealing with the buddist temple. well it starts to get really good, and if you wanted to know more about kurono, this is where you start to really get a feel for his mind. heck im only on chapter 217 right now havent had time to get uptodate with the new chapters, but i'll start reading again after another 15chapters come out. only problem i got with this is that the chapters are really short, but i guess it works really well with this action type of manga, gives you little jolts of adrenaline so that your heart will keep racing from beginning to end.

Did you even bother reading past the first couple of chapters? The manga is hardly over! If you had bothered reading up to the most recent chapters, you'd see things become a lot different.

It's actually an excellent manga where the characters grow and develop into more 3-dimensional human beings. The only thing I would recommend is to read by volumes, or save up chapters, because the chapters, especially the past 5-10 drag out scenes. While I enjoyed them and the artwork very much, most people who read manga do not have that patience.

I started reading it when Omanga was still alive and doing it. I was in shock about how good the manga was. I recommended it to all my friends the next day. But it's annoying to wait for the chapters to come out once in a while and in low quality too :(

not that huge of a fan, but I enjoyed it for what it was, mindless violence
and who doesnt enjoy a bit of that from time to time
gantz is also very easy to read if you have a stomache, finished all of it in a couple of reads... this is no death note LOL
very little text, lots of action and gore
do wonder about all the open plot-holes tho, whats up with Kurono's bro for example
really curious about the next couple of chapters (post 217)
but I dont care much for the CG backgrounds... tho I have to say it fits the series

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.
