What started as an incredible story some where along the line turned to utter rubbish. I'm not sure what happened but maybe about half way through it took a 90 degree turn and never looked back. Characters that only recently were introducted were quickly forgotten and even an entire race (species/evolution) of people that were poised to play a significant role just stopped being written about. 

Maybe I'm the one that is missing something but this whole manga just feels like it fell apart.

You will not find another manga that can capture the full range of humanity from glory to depravedness as this one.  The mangaka has an amazing insight into the psyche of people in the modern day, the facades that fall apart under stress and the strengths that come from the strangest of places.  

There are a few fight scenes that go on for a chapter or two too many, but this is well balanced out by the storyline.

This manga has a great start and i loved it very much.... for the first half or so.  The author jumps around ideas about half way into the series and the manga lost it effectiveness for me.

well today i finished reading this manga .... now i have so many things to say ....

after reading the first chapter of this manga i became addicted to it ... i can't describe my feelings that i had back then ... it was so cool ... it was exactly what i was looking for ... a mature themed story with so many kills in it but thats not everything this story has so many philosophy behind of itself ... it was so cool ... i can say that i have so many awesome memories with this manga ... i laughed ,cried ,got excited and depressed and so many other feelings on this ....

but after reading 100 chapters it turned so bulshit .... i can say that they just made it for money ... they just ruined everything after that ... gantz turned to a crappy story with no reason behind its events ... and today after reading the final chpater i told myself "why the heck i wasted my life on reading this " ...

the first 100 chapters were so awesome but the rest 200 chapters were something completly diffrent ...tho there are two live actions based on this manga and i enjoyed them so much ...

if you like mature themed and full of gore and kill yet philosophical and addictive stories this one is for you ... but don't except a good ending or a reason for the events in the story ....

Gantz es un manga Seinen que empezó a ser publicado por ahí del 2000, bajo la pluma y mente de Hiroya Oku.

A todo esto, de que va Gantz? Oku nos cuenta una historia en donde varias personas al morir, son transportadas a una habitación sin saber porque, luego una gran esfera negra les brindara armas y trajes especiales para combatir contra extraterrestres en asignadas misiones, misiones de asesinar o ser asesinado, al final de cada misión los sobrevivientes serán premiados con un puntaje como si todo eso se tratase de un juego. Al llegar a los 100 puntos (Puntaje casi imposible de alcanzar) el sobreviviente tendrá la opción de 


1. Revivir un compañero asesinado
2. Obtener un arma especial
3. Ser liberado del juego y volver a su vida normal.

Básicamente así se despliega esta historia, la cual claramente se volverá más profunda, y empezaremos a saber del porqué de este tipo de cosas, Oku decidió dividir el manga en tres arcos la denominada 1st Stage es la que albergara todo el inicio de la historia y de que va Gantz, 2nd Stage también conocida como “Katastrophe” que albergaría 237 capítulos, en este arco el manga se profundiza y nos damos cuenta que eso de matar aliens no es algo tan sencillo y tiene un porque, introducirá un cantidad desmesurada de nuevos personajes, como el equipo de Osoka, además de equipos de otros países, esto ya no va solo de Japón, Gantz está en todo el mundo. Por último la 3rd Stage o la Fase Final, que es la que se encargara de cerrar el manga contándonos la inminente destrucción del mundo con una última guerra extraterrestre.

Gantz es un mundo increíble, Oku ha creado una historia esplendida con un sin número de detalles, personajes únicos, solidos e interesantes (Por no mencionar el excelente desarrollo que estos sufren), su dibujo es fenomenal, un cuido de detalles único, desde trajes, armas, robots, vehículos, espadas, todo en este universo es auténtico. Después de 13 años en Junio Oku decidió terminar Gantz con 383 capítulos, cerrando toda duda existente sobre este universo. Como punto negativo seria mencionar la cantidad absurda de capítulos de un mini arco de amor entre Kurono y Tae, el manga aburría y yo pensé que Oku no sabía que hacer, gracias a Dios Oku pudo encarrilar ese tren y poner todo en orden para darle su justo final.
