In my opinion, this manga is the most under appreciated gem in the medium. If you do not like this series, try reading it online free first to at least chapter 100, then I promise you will want to buy the books. It is possible for this manga to come off as homophobic, but the entire message of the series is how we need equality. And it may come off as sexist and mysoginistic, but hat is a device to show that when the women were kept from fighting, it was a disaster, but as the female characters became more prevalent, the team did better. The series will come off as crass and tasteless, but this could not be further from the case. It has true beauty in each person in the series, the character development is great. The only problem is that it is a very quick read for such a long series, I finished all 37 books online in a week, then started buying the English editions. If you try this series it will be impossible when you really get the direction of the series at about 100 chapters in.

Product Overview

How long will you stay in the game?

The last thing Kei and Masaru remember was being struck dead by a subway train while saving the life of a drunken bum. What a waste! And yet somehow they?re still...alive? Or semi-alive? Maybe it?s reanimated... by some kind of alien orb with a nasty message... "Your lives are over. What you do with your new lives is up to me!" And what this orb called ?Gantz? intends to do with their lives is make them play games of death, hunting all kinds of odd aliens, along with a bunch of other ordinary citizens who?ve recently met a tragic semi-end. The missions they embark upon are often dangerous. Many die ? and die again!

This dark and action-packed manga deals with the moral conflicts of violence, coupled with teenage sexual confusion and angst, and with our fascination with death. Hang onto your gear and keep playing the game, whatever you do; Gantz is unrelenting!
