    Default A theory

    Please dont flame me for this. That is the last thing I need. I know nothing of Japanese law or contracts its just a theory.

    I was watching the movie "Stuck on You" on HBO and got me thinking because Cher (is her name even english? can you spell that?) in that movie has a contract that she wants to get rid of so she makes use of what little power she has to get the show cancelled.

    Back to business, what if Oku wants to do the same with gantz? Its possable he doesn't want to write and draw it anymore so he is popin em out slower and slower and putting less story and less pages in it until we all stop reading. not that hes getting any money from us anyway.

    Rule #16 - If you fail in epic proportions, it might just become a winning failure.

    Can't be right, though.

    The number of pages per chapter remains constant, and these breaks are relatively normal.

    it was just an idea. Realy? the page numbers are the same? seems like its getting shorter...

    I believe it's still the same.

    Much better than what I was expecting.

    And no probably not. In Japan mangaka is a serious career and the crazy otaku fans would probably blackmail or coerce him into starting again.

    There's one chapter I've found out of the last 25 with 17 pages, but other than that every chapter I've checked has the standard eighteen pages. I'm pretty certain that if he really wanted to end Gantz, he wouldn't have taken a break after Kurono's death—it would have immediately moved into a mission/showdown and been "resolved", probably by the deaths of everyone concerned.

    Anyway, I think he's putting in too much effort for that to be likely. The fact that he isn't punctual is just one factor.

    Yea, I do´t think Oku does put less effort in Gantz, I guess the chapter realises take longer, because he puts more effort in the manga. He has improved his art style and I guess it´s more work. + he has to be very careful how he lets the plot develope if he doesnt want to loose any fans. Otherwise he would have started Gantz: Phase 2.

    quite true, Oku wouldn't just get bored of gantz at this point of the game. He still remains constant with pages, art quality, story interest, gory fetishism, boobies size, drug abuse, alien raping.......eeeerrr......anyway....

    So yeah, he could just be a lazy bum, but for what I know, editorials are pretty serious about releasing dates, so there must be a good reason for him to delay gantz (more tabu issues I presume). Let's calmly wait for the new gantz issue to gaze what's new

    Plus, the storyline is going the same speed as it always does--slow enough to put in the little details.

    I don't think this theory is right. The chapters progress at the same slow pace and have about the same number of pages.
