    Yes it has been going some whre, haven't you been reading ?

    Ok the replays of the scenario where they go and hunt down some aliens, this is where you might misinterpret that the story isn't going anywhere.

    Your missing out the other parts of the story.

    So, their stuck in that game and they don't know the rules. The next game they do a bit better. From the first time, they were told to score 100 points to be free, so that my dear friend is what the story is about.

    Then later on they keep meeting new groups of people who mostly all horribly fail to survive because their a. unskilled, b. inexperienced c. too stupid c. too careless or unlucky

    So then Katou and Kishimoto die, then Tae died.

    Now Kei discovered that 3 things happen when you get 100 points, and 1 of them is ressurecting a person.

    It may be a replay of the game, but the context is always different as their always fighting different alien targets, and lately things have turned even more bizzare with the appearance of nanobot vampires hunting the gantz participants down in turn. Not to mention Izumi who is apparently the only known person to have managed to beaten the game, and the other new interesting characters such as the country side general, the super star, and 2 psychics.

    Where exactly is it not moving forward ? the whole game is what it is all about.

    Look at Naruto, that revolves around ninjas, and one piece revolves around pirates, and etc.


    Ok look at this from a Naruto analogy.

    Remember that bit where it took 3-4 episodes for the Hokage to die ? Now that was straining it a wee bit too much.

    But now lets look at Gantz. It is all about character development. It's about learning new things. Just look at their world and reality.

    It's not like everything would be known to them so easily in the room with the black ball would it now.

    It's a mysterious room where the rules are not all to apparent or a guide as to how to play it.

    Most of the people that went to the room the first time were all pole axed by what the fuck was happening.

    They didn't immediately perceive what was going on and so died. This was mostly due to very stupid people that couldn't adapt to the present situation at hand and all were to embeded in their previous lives to know wtf was going on now.


    I think that what we know so far seems about right. Not too much knowledge and not too little and at the pace it's going i don't see what is wrong.

    That just means more Gantz goodness for all don't you agree

    That's not called writing. That's called pulling shit out of your ass.

    I mean, vampires? What the hell? He must have been sick when he thought that up. Face it, he's just making things up as he goes.

    *waves hands up in the air

    No point debating any further since we are of strongly opposing opinions.

    Thats your subjective opinion, but many people do like Gantz

    Well the anime wasn't bad, but to be honest, I think only an existing Gantz fan would really enjoy it,
    1) there are too much cheesy scenes in the anime that aren't in the manga, like scenes of Katou with his brother - which are NOT in the manga. those were so painfully bad to watch.
    2) the anime director seemed to think there were problems in the manga and it was up to him to fix them/reinterpret them. As a result, they made the one bozoku who lived a more interesting character for some reason.
    But what pissed me off the most,
    3) they TRIED to explain Gantz, giving a role to that old woman, making the last mission about Kurono and the participants being people who had seen him die in the subway. That entire mission just ruined the anime.

    IMHO, Gantz isn't about the plot, it's about the characters. I sort of have to agree with AKofC's comment about "pulling shit out of your ass" but, quite frankly, it doesn't bother me one bit. I'm still reading Gantz because i want to see how the the characters are going to react to the newest screwed up plot twist.

    That's not to say I don't want to see an explanation for the plot, but I'm not going to stop liking Gantz just because the plot seems kinda half-assed. Hell, I've thought the plot was kinda screwed up ever since I met the aliens. (Green Onion Alien?? Buddha statues? WTF?) The addition of Vampires didn't bother me at all.

    As long as the characters stay interesting and continue to grow, I'll keep on reading Gantz. No matter how messed up the plot gets.

    Back on topic though, the anime is what got me hooked on the manga so I don't think it's true that only an existing fan would enjoy it. I started showing it to a friend of mine and he also is enjoying the anime even though he hasn't yet seen the manga. (I'm gonna show him most of the anime first so that when he reads the manga he'll be like, "Woah, I didn't think Gantz could get any better! )

    If there were no manga, the anime wouldn't be bad. It's only when there's a much better version of it out there that the anime starts looking bad.

    I agree with your third point Diedrupo, that whole "Old woman being important" thing pissed me off too. Nishi was just making stuff up when he said "Did someone talk to you before you died?" They were trying to make that significant when really it was just a load of crap.

    hm the old women was suppose to be a recruiting agent sent by Gantz supposedly.

    Like wtf ?

    That kid in the first session said weren't you contacted by somebody or some such.

    Well simply put, if people don't like it don't watch/read it

    I didn't like the part where Kishimoto or Katou died, but that didn't make me stop watching the anime cause i believe they are gonna ressurected

    hmm.....i thought someone had provided you with a source by now......but go here, it should have em all in english

    www.torrentspy.com

    just search for gantz....it'll pull up manga listings as well, Shoc has a batch of 1-13 (Plus an extra) and W-Dreamers has a batch of 14-26, if you don't get good seeders than you could be downloading them for a few days.....and as the site is named...you use bittorrent to download
