Gantz Releases & Discussion
Whats it like? Please tell! Oh and whats it about too?
Havent read it yet, but you can read what its about here:
Wrong section btw
i've seen the anime. animation was great but i didn't like some of the stuff and lacked interest.
I've read it.. : It's cool.. Got the biggest selection of maincharacter deaths I've ever seen..
I've only watched the anime..
wrong section. moved.
i've read the manga. im pretty far into it too. i enjoy reading it but its definatly not my favorite.
Heh. I just commented about this one...GANTZ is one of my favorite mangas ever, and I relish reading every chapter even more than Naruto (don't look at me like that! ).
Also, if you wish to read it--since it's unlicensed--you can download it at two places (one has the first part, the second has the...well, second heh).
this LJ entry
seen it. the plot is one of the greatest.
those who like the anime must read the manga
Tried reading the manga, but I just couldn't handle it. Well, not the gore/killing part.. I just can't... go past volume 3. XD;;;
Killing of the entire cast of characters is in itself a reason enough to read this manga. Gantz is terrific, you have to read it!
Yeah, Killing off characters is like the main theme of this manga. Actually the 2 main characters got killed right off chapter 1. But the story is very addictive. It is also a very well drawn manga. There is still tons of unsolved mysteries.
Don't watch the anime tho, coz they censored everything, and censoring is lame.
then ive got good news for you:-
get the dvd version, its uncensored! iand boy does it look good!, you can find them in suprnova.org
For real? Like really truly uncensored? Elfen-lied like uncensored? Nice dude. Thx for the tip.
yep, you see everything, i already dowanlaod the first 4 episdoes, they show how the main charcters die with their heads and blood flying in the air when they were hit by the train, cool stuff
Defintly NOT a series for those with weak stomachs =)
But I loved it, and the series is getting really good about right now in the manga.
guys if you want a manag that is even powerful than Gantz, check Koroshiya Ichi
i love this genre of manga, but this one was probabily the most brutal one ever, I actually felt like throwing up after reading it. check the encyclopida of manga under my sig for a review of it.
Yeah, i read that manga too. Actually, I first heard about the movie. I watched it found it quite cool and went for the manga. Boy was I surprised to find out that the manga is even more violent than the movie! It's not only the gore scenes and all, it's also the themes treated that are disturbing. Some examples are Extreme masochism, rape, necrophilia.... The story is awesome tho.
*still drooling over avy* yeah ichi was brutal, the sex ,(espically when ichi ummm.. relieves himself using blood to ejaculate) was extremly disturbing, and those twins, my god, wehn they cut of the woman's nipple, yuck. Yet strangly i couldnt stop reading it!!
anyhow alos check out this scanlating group,
check MPD Pshyco, its a great mnaga too
hehehe. I can't even stop drooling over my own avy.
Yeah i used to get my Gantz volumes from omanga.net too. But then they suddenly stopped translating Gantz so i had to switch to Geno on Mediaminer.org.
Those twins....they used to be triplets (lmfao) were really messed up. But not as messed up as the main bad guy. Remember when he cut a guy's penis in 2? I was Shocked with a huge S.
Wow, read a synopsis of MPD Pshyco. Sounds great. *starting download*
What do u think about gantz
I?ve only read the first two volumes so far. No great feeling either way yet. The art is very professional... it's so clean and realistic it almost lacks character. They showed how it's produced, using 3D rendered figures for the postures and backgrounds. The premise is interesting spin on existing themes (sci fi reality TV) so I'm reserving judgement until I've seen more. It raises some interesting questions but we've yet to see what it does with them. There's no over-arching plot to speak of yet... just questions.
For those who dont know it yet;
You can currently only read volume 1 as a normal user, however if you register you can view volume 2 and if you participate in the community you can view volume 3.
Ganzt is one of my fav. mangas at the moment, as Ghandi has already mentioned the artwork is simply superb, the story might sound weird and unconventional at first, but give it time and youll become intangled in it
How much have you read, moe? Is it available anywhere else? I'm gonna start getting myself some points in that community so I can read more stuff over christmas
Ive read till volume 17, chapter 183 you can find it here
butr honestly, if you want a manga that will make your mind spin and believe mangas should win a nobel prize of literature, check 20th Century boys
its by the same mangka of Monster (which you can also find in anime-source)
20th CB is a splendid read, personally its the greatest manga Ive read in my entire life, and i have read tons of manga in my days.
Oooooooooh, sweet. Thanks for the linkage. I read most of Monster, but I skipped to the end... damn, that was epically long.
Looks like I've got some reading to do there though.
