    Well that's really a matter of opinion. IF you want a synopsis of gantz that's one thing. But to convince you to read it? I dunno. I'd rather you read what kind of a manga it is and decide whether you like it or not from there.
    Dear cousin choppitychop89, you were a good relative, though I hardly knew ye.

    Sorry but Ill just give you my opinion about it! Gantz is Oku Hiroya's best comic ! When you read it , you recognize some kindda people. The drawing are beautiful and you can recognize some places in Tokyo that really exists like the big shop center in ikebukuro or Tokyo tower and many things like that! You HAVE TO read it just to make an opinion abouut it! If you like sexy pictures, you'll like it! If you like action mangas, you'll like it!

    For me personally i found Gnatz a little to weird and disturbing, but i know a lot of people who really enjoy it.

    It's pointless asking for opinions though, since ive found its best to make your own judgements. Its good to get reccomendations, but for deciding whether or not to actually pick up a manga and follow it you need to decide for yourself. Best way ive found of doing this is read the first 20 or so chapters, in that time you can normally get a feel for the manga. If there's an anime version watch that aswell. Some of my fave manga's i only picked up after watching the anime. Though thats not always true, Ah My Goddes is awsome, but the anime sucks beyond belief :P

    well, first off, warnings

    GANTZ is very graphic, both in sex and violence.
    You also have to be able to take violence as it is, and not find it 'lol' funny. Some people handle exessive violence as humor (for example... laughing in Kill Bill with the Crazy 88's). That will take away from the Gantz experience.

    Why it's good...

    it is hard to predict, without being random, it is captivating. The characters are likable (all the sadder when they die). It just seems so fresh and original, yet not too different. It is also very well drawn. The layout is great, the action, it plays out very nicely.

    It's just good. Thrilling. Dramatic when it is, action packed when it is.

    As long as you can tolerate the violence and sex.



    A synopsis is available at the Gantz official website (for the anime, which begins the same) or in the stoptazmo download section.
    I hope my post provides the information you sought, and I hope you enjoy Gantz.

    oook... if sex scenes are the only thing get you going, you should try hentai ^^

    anyhow, gantz is good because it is sort of different to all the other things we read, unique in a way, and the plot/story is quite entertaining. also it is pretty realistic, not just the bad guys that whine and cry, the main characters does that all the time here =D

    p.s BR is pretty good, but i still like the movie better... the major reason is prolly i can see it all at once =/
