    I am absaloutely hooked on this manga at the moment. Most of what I heard from others wasn't very good. I think they compared Kei to Shinji in most cases - in terms of how much viewers hate them, but I was prepared for an a$$ and I'm really enjoying it!

    Has anyone else read this?

    Psh, there's more than enough gore to ignore the plot ;)

    Not suprising though; I can't seem to find anybody who does like it. Perhaps I'm twisted?

    Of course, Aphelion, that means you're twisted too :D

    That thing with the room and the people.. kinda reminds me of the movie Cube. You see a number of people sitting in a room, wondering what happened and where they are.. The alien hunting thing, it's pretty the same thing in any anime these days.. however, the anime is indeed bloody and contains much gore which makes it's rating rise in my eyes.. i hate when there is no or almost no blood when a guy gets punched so hard that he gets thrown on some building which thereafter crumbles on him :D Another thing I loved in Gantz was that characters actually die there, some of which you supposed will live till the end but suddenly get killed. I dont say that Gantz is the only anime that has it.. I just give it the credit it deserves.

    Aph...if a guy get's punched into a building which collapses on him and he survives...I'm sure it's acceptable to say he might not bleed from something like that lol

    Plus...they may not die permanently in gantz...they can be rezzed

    Yes, they can only if you spend all your points on it.. if i remember correctly.. about the building, ok perhaps I have exaggerated a bit :D I meant that when someone got cut then you see blood and when you see them getting their limbs ripped off.. well, it has the appropriate effects xD

    From what I've seen of the anime, it's pretty messed up.

    The anime is awesome. They've made full motion pictures from it now.
