    Adding to this, there's also Oku Hiroya's Short Stories, a 2 volumes compilation ("black" and "red")of his earlier works, I believe? Though I haven't really read those, since I'm not skilled enough with Japanese. Also, the "Hen" series 2 (about the girls) has an OVA titled "Strange Love" which if I'm not mistaken is classified as hentai.

    @ Daniel: I thought FMA was only 30 pages or so. Anyway, having two 25 pages chapters a month is the same. The 25 pages pace works fine for me. Of course, lately Oku's been taking longer to finish the chapters, but that's good, it means he's taking some time to decide what's going to happen next (or at least I'd like to think so), and to draw something as detailed as Gantz, as already remarked, certainly shouldn't be an easy task.

    Is it just me or a repetition ghost dwells around here?
    none of those are hentai or at least none of those is any more explicit than gantz.

    compare that list to the authors of tende freeze, hellsing, azumanga and tenjou tenge (amongst several others).

    Actually, I believe out of Hiroya's works, Gantz would be the most explicit.
    At least taking into account the Osakan arc...

    Some of these works have a certain degree of sexual content and some boobs, but that's it. However, there are some who think any sort of sexual content already counts as hentai (those who think so, often don't know what "ecchi" stands for).
    There's also the label "adult".

    Anyway, Shin's post on the faq thread, which I quoted in that post pretty much answered your question, no?
    Why not check for yourself, then?
    Baka-Updates Manga - OKU Hiroya

    There's also a chapter in which Oku talks about the first hen (the oneshot).

    All in all, Oku hasn't published any known sex-only orientated work like "Slut Girl" or so, if that fits best as answer.

    That is exactly why I asked, I got some scanslations of HEN (the transexual one), obviously Hen as it is being scanslated, Zero One, already completed and meteru no kimochi already completed. Hence why I asked if he had made something else, since all the previous works don't qualify as hentai and thus, saying he had made hentai made me think I was losing on some of his works.

    Only the first one (Trans) is classified as Hentai (Oku actually calls it one. I actually made the post to clarify that common mistake - Hen 1 is a hentai, while the other two only feature somewhat explicit content, without really being hentai.

    Hen (homo) came out after that, and Hen (lesB) after. Gantz came out somewhere in the middle, while Zero One and Meteru were started and completed during Gantz - considering how shit they are, I would have preferred he made an extra six volumes of Gantz instead... Hen x Hen x Hen I don't like, but there is a market for that out there, so I can't really say anything about that. Zero One and Meteru are sub-par when compared to industry standards (Zero One v Gantz for the action manga market is a no brainer, while Meteru does not hold the candle to other cult "romantic" types like say, Onegai Teacher {the ridiculous amount of fan fic and hentai skits this series has generated borders on the absurd...})
    Which brings us to the other reason why I made the hentai post - If you are into the kind of stuff Hen digs (all 3 of them) then by all means look it up. However, Meteru and Zero One are definitely not worth your time, unless you collect Oku Hiroya...

    I thought Zero One was pretty good. It ended too abruptly and some characters were good. I never knew he drew it during Gantz...

    This thread has gotten so off topic...

    KATOUCHERRYCOMBO!!!

    ^I said it was shit, but that's only compared to Gantz. I actually went looking for it during a bout of Gantzlessness, expecting something to relieve my addiction, and was let down. That said, Zero1 was actually published BEFORE Gantz, but Oku was already working on Gantz before that. He decided to go with Zero1 first because he thought the CG would be more appealing to youths than Gantz's "bleak" atmosphere. If he had been luckier with Zero1 (it did not sell), Gantz would probably have been released much later. Worst case, we might still have been talking about the awesomeness of the Osaka Gantzers... lol.
    That said, I second you - "Bartender, a Katou-Cherry for me too."
    How many days to 272 again?

    If you want to read something to fix up your gantz needs I would rather recomend mpd psycho, battel royale or even berserk... also the original dogs somehow has a similar feeling.
