I love Gantz. I've read all of it so far, and it just gets more and more intense and gruesome as it goes. Stay away from the anime though.
They're also making a live action adaptation about this.

And the guy who plays L in the death note films is going to be Masaru katou in the Gantz films.

Gantz rules. The only fault is that the author clearly makes up a lot as he goes along. Sometimes he'll get bored and be like "Hey look, vampires!" and then forget about them for several chapters. A great read though.

This book is badass. And it only gets better the further you go.

You made this sound so bad ass that I had to look it up and read it for myself. Thanks!

I know that there is a pretty ok abridged series on youtube for this series, a lot of the jokes fall flat, but its alright.

I've seen the anime many times, but I've yet to read the Manga. It sounds different enough from the anime that I may go read it. I'm glad you gave it a good review, the anime is one of my favorites.

(Sorry for the Double Post)
(Also SPOILERS)
In responce to what boogie says about Kei... He's defidently alittle annoying during the first few missions. I can't vouch for the manga as I haven't read it, but in the anime Kei becomes cool over time (I assume they're similar in this aspect). There are four missions- during the first he's a jackass. During the end of the second and the third, he does some awesome things, driven purely by the will to survive. By the end he's driven by the will to save others (though to a lesser extent than Kato). He's actually pretty well developed, like Kato describe Kei during his teenage years as brave and heroic, and Kei slowly (emphasis on slowly here) become that again. It shows that he was corrupted as he grew up, which makes him alittle more interesting.

I loved it in the beginning but it really starts to be silly after the first 10 books or so. Maybe because it is way too over the top then in the bad japanese way and/or it is getting tedious (Dragon Ball syndrome).

I considered this my favourite manga until the vampires showed up at which point I lost interest pretty quickly. It still makes me sad.

Oh, hey, where's Tadao? I'm sure he would be in here making fun of all the people who read this and then go to jerk off to pictures of bunnies.

I enjoyed the whole series. It definitely starts to fall flat towards the end, though.

I agree with the vampires. I think it pretty much started to go downhill from there.
