Kei, a cynical and arrogant high school student, has minimal regard for others; so it's much to his surprise that when he's asked by his elementary school friend Kato to save a drunken bum laying on the subway tracks, he actually complies. However, no good deed goes unpunished, and they are swiftly decapitated by the oncoming train. Kei and Kato awaken in a nondescript room occupied by a black sphere and a variety of other people, and thus begins Gantz's game. In it, the players must face off against aliens in battles where death is inevitable and rewards are minimal. Unfortunately for them, this is just the beginning of their nightmare - at least, for those who manage to survive...

Warning: There are some spoilers in this review! Do you like manga that has blackface? CONSTANT mention of rape? unnecessary killing? intense over sexualizing of the female characters, that are only introduced to quickly fall in love with one of the male characters? Then this manga is for you!! When i first started reading Gantz it was pretty good at first, i started noticing the female characters were really oversexualized, (every chapter has a page at the end with one of the female characters either wearing a bikini or nothing at all) so i thought of dropping it, wish i did lmao. I really thought it was going to get less problamatic, but it never did. Over the course of the manga, the story gets more and more confusing. Nothing is really explained. I can't believe how much rape is mentioned in here like it's nothing? I can't count on my fingers how many times i read "i'm gonna rape her" or something disgusting along the lines of that. Like even around the end of the manga, they forced two of the giants to have sex, while they were crying and both clearly didn't want it. Then there was another part where one of the random characters starting raping one of the giants, and when she tried to pull away, they shot her head off. Then we get to the blackface. I was so disgusted. One of the main characters "Izumi" put on blackface to go gun down a ton of people for such a stupid reason as getting Kurono's attention. Literally the whole chapter was Izumi just killing people. Great character. If you REALLY don't see anything wrong with that, then PLEASE reflect on your beliefs and opinions. The character development is poor, the only character who actually changed was Kurono. The ending left a ton of questions unanswered as well.
