Since this is mainly about what intrested me most at first, it'd have to be Kurono's cynicism. I felt a sort of bond between the character and myself because of that.
Afterwards, of course, the plot and such is awesome.
the vacations the author takes.
Gantz is cool cuz you really dont know what will happen next.. people die.
So much better then shit ass bleach where no one dies.. its too predictable and doesnt have any suspense in the fights.. Gantz is a constant life or death struggle
when i read it i become more curious what will happen next but i first know it by watching the anime!!!!!!but the idea is original and the complexity is really something!!!!11
Besides the violence, sex, story arcs, and great characters, I like the angst, the desperation, the hopelessness of the nature of GantZ.
It is apocalytical and I can't help but get sucked into hoping and rooting that for the characters to survive against all odds.
I especially like the utter "confusion" and "shock" of the new arrivals and their action and reaction when they are faced with having to survive with very little knowledge of their situation and almost no time to adapt.
I love the way the characters change over time in the crazy hunts. The action is cool too, but the storys and the way characters interact is what makes Gantz different than the routine bloody action manga.
But what kept me so hooked to read all 228 chapters was the non-ending suspense. What the hell would Gantz introduce next. What new people were gonna die. And many thoughts such as 'katou couldn't really be dead' or 'what the hell's going on here?' just hook you.
tha reason i watch gantz is becuz of tha character akira , hes a great character wif tons of development ~ also tha plot + story is very original and interesting! wen i started i couldnt stop reading tha manga~
does this answer ur question?
Geez. Such bland responses, aside from a few.
Hmm, since this is about what interests me the most and because the original post wants responses to be specific... My answers would be:
- how the author display the realism by his/her fantastical scrutiny of life (damn, this sounds too much like a thesis for a paper). Examples: the chick that slit her wrist and ended up in Gantz b/c she have nothing to live for then to die for the dude she lives for (lol,what irony), the chick that was gang .... er sexually molested by 3 dudes and ended up in Gantz... (forgot how she dies), the death of the grandma and the little kid both before and after Gantz, the dude that lives his life just for the thrill, after all life is a game.
-the significant displays of the characters internal conflicts. Got to love how the Little dude crys for "mummy" before dying. Internal conflicts, just gives more of a punch to stories.
- the beautiful miniscule details. People sweating, panting, crying. That shows how much thought the author puts into his mangas.
-which reminds me, the humiliation invlolved with the story. Kurono clenching his legs, sweat streaming down his face; just trying to finish his dump before teleporting to the room.
-Most importantly, the might shown from the absolute will to conquer death. Obviously this is a sell off for many famed mangas, as of late.
I, also, love Kurono's cynicism and I too have a certain bond that I can relate.

What i don't like about it is the Aliens, they're pretty odd at times and act a bit odd without much explanation for their behavior or being invisible to people. The vampire's are pretty cool though, don't care for the odd abilities without explanation though. The main thing i don't like is how he's falling in love with some girl and is feeling all these emotions it's pretty annoying how it's taking over the story.
