Rei Yokoyamada, a high schooler whose father works for a film production company, is inspired to create his own short film with his friends. One day, while out to find actors, he spots tabloid-like notices that the adult film star Papico lives in his area. When he takes them down to protect her, he runs into the woman herself. Little does he know that Papico is about to get dragged into a strange, supernatural happening…where she grows to the size of a giant!

There are spoilers in this review!!!....I really am a sucker for romance in my mangas! Don't get me wrong, I love all kinds of manga and I read Manga without romance as well. Manga like jujutsu kaisen or demon Slayer but manga with romance is definitely my favorite! I just love when two characters love for each other flourishes!This manga started out really good and kept me burning through pages from start to finish! The only time I had an issue with this manga was when Papico and Rei broke up but they quickly got back together after a few chapters. The ending broke my heart when Papico died but the way that the mangaka brought her back and got them back together was so freaking beautiful and masterful that it's unbelievable! I teared up!!!Tokyo ghoul used to be my favorite romance manga and toradora used to be my favorite romance anime but Gigant tops them both! Papito and Rei's love is something that makes you fan girl really hard and leaves you wanting more of the both of them! There's some time travel thrown in there and some really cool fights but I think the ending is what makes this series so amazing even though the entire series is ridiculously amazing! I am so glad that I read this!
There is certainly some entertainment value to be found in this series, but the awkward relationship between Rei and Papico and the overall directionless story makes this a difficult series to recommend. However, the final volumes do bring certain elements together so if the opening volumes are titillating, it is worth finishing.Read my full review here: Hiroya Oku's GIGANT Full Series Review (Vol. 1-10) - Manga Obsessive <div id="popupMenu" style="display: none;"> </div>
