    If you like the series, buy the manga. It doesn't directly support the author, but since the rights to series are purchased in allotments, then the producers (jump weekly?) can charge more money for future rights if they see the series is running successful in the US. When the producers get the message that the American market likes gantz, The Mangaka gets more money, to make more product to sell to both markets.

    Even if its only indirectly, its important to support the artist. If we don't then they start going RIAA on our asses. This is why Scanlations are permitted to exist. Surely the owners to the Japanese rights to Gantz know that its being distributed for free online, however they know from past series, that they'll still turn a profit if they sell the American rights to a company that acknowledges a pre-existing fan-base.

    I wouldn't panic if Viz gets a hold of it b/c there's no chance they would try selling this to children at Borders like Jojo, so they'd package it as an Editor's Choice like Short Cuts and that would be okay.

    Now if CMX gets a hold of it, then I would panic. And I would suggest that you all do the same if that happens.

    I remember reading some news story about big layoffs at ADV and how they where going to focus on bringing only manga for anime they got. Nothing came of it, but that bears mentioning.

    Is there english edition of manga available for purchase? Cause I contacted local dealer about this, and he said definite no, that there is no GantZ english manga distro available (only german and french), which made me a saaaad panda.

    Urukukude?

    I have missed a lot in this forum, so I dunno, if this was already mentioned...

    Dark Horse will release (after a lot of effort getting the license) the 1st volume of Gantz on Jun 25 2008. Here is the proof. I think on that day, we will have to celebrate much...

    I hope that will have any effect on Germany, otherwise, I´ll simply import it!! Amazon will surely have it.

    ^ Yes, it was already mentioned, though on a different thread.
    And since this has been revived, although it must be common knowledge by now, to the Brazilian folks around, Gantz manga has also been licensed in Brazil, but I guess it's already been a while since then. If the manual gets a Brazilian Portuguese version I'm buying it, though I don't see that happening. (damn you, Shin and all you manga-lucky French &#172;&#172; )

    Fark sif buy the farking french version...
    IT'S IN FRENCH FOR CRYING OUT LOUD...
    I AM NOT BUYING THE MANGA JUST TO GET THE PRIVILEGE OF SEEING KURONO SAY "MERDE", REIKA "KURONO, J'E T'AIME", TAE "J'AI TOUT AVALE", etc, etc
    so it's dark horse for me too...

    ^ But the advantage is mainly the manual, at least in my point of view.
    It's kinda flustrating having the raw and being unable to understand most of it.
    The Brazilian Portuguese version doesn't gimme the hots either.

    Regardless, I think scanlators put much more effort in having a decent product...
