I didn't see this coming.

I got the impression Oku was tired of this series and his fans, but I don't know, what is his motivation? Does he want to punish us further? I haven't read it, but I'm not sure I want to.
>>
More Gantz is always welcome as long as it doesn't get as convoluted as the Invasion arc.

I had to drop it when the vamps showed up and I just couldn't figure out what the fuck was happening since they were apparently real vamps and not aliens. Then the aliens DID show up and it was a complete clusterfuck. I was really enjoying it too especially when that one alien showed up to his school and scared the fuck out of him.

Ok, anon. You wake up inside the gantz room, with the big black shiny ball in there, the countdown has started. How fucked are you? Will you be able to survive the aliens?
>>
>>133869585
I remember I started this late. I caught up and then it took that big hiatus (I think around the time the live action movie was coming out?) I then realized it took Oku a full year unhindered to get through the Oni Alien arc and dropped it. From what I hear, that wasn't a bad decision.

Reika was best girl, but to me what killed the character wasn't killing her off, but allowing her to get a personal Kurono.
Point of the character was she could have everything in life, except the thing she wanted most.

I had read a shit ton of manga before Gantz but it was one of the first manga to ever make me feel urgency in what was happening. The fact that they were trying so hard to live then they got that little rest after the game was over, only to realize it's fucking reality and the aliens will fuck their shit up if they find them plus the mystery of what gantz was and what it was doing. Then the author just threw it all away and made everything feel so convoluted and pointless.

Worst thing about this project is it's actual written by Oku, and drawn by someone else.
Should have the other way around, at this point I think it's obvious Oku should be kept away from storytelling.

Why can't they make a single fucking death game manga without fucking up the motherfucking ending? It's like the "go deeper" meme, they need to fucking stop.

True.
At the time I saw that as a jab from Oku to the fanbase since they kept asking him to bring back these two.

Quite a dick move.

Was nice to finally get to see Reika fully nude, though.

did anyone ever bother to ask the author what the deal with the vampires was?
>>
I was recently looking through some old Gantz chapters trying to remember some events that occurred. I started around the part the short alien wrecks kei's school.

I ended up reading like a hundred chapters or so over the next few hours straight. I seriously forgot how amazing early Gantz was. It was so much more exciting when everything was mysterious and you didn't know what the fuck was going to happen next.

If only Oku had decided on a plot sometime, Gantz could have been incredible.
>>
>>133871801
I think it was implied it was some kind of disease, not actual vampires

But the real answer is he obviously drop that subplot as he went on to write even more convulted shit
>>
>>133869585
i will never truly understand Gantz are i'm going to be bother to understand what the fuck is going on in later chapters
>>
>>133871933
This.

Story was very good up to the Oni arc, in my opinion, and arguably Osaka's to some.
Once he started to explain shit he obvious never planned is when the downfall began.

Should have stuck to being a story about fucked up characters trying to survive fighting mysterious aliens.
>>
>>133872039
Osaka is a pretty notable arc. I don't know if the bits leading up to it were any good though.

Troll god aliens was still the only good part of the last arc. It was the only time that it felt like Gantz. But of course the last arc was terrible.
>>
>>133871278
>>133871441
I've read manga with death games before gantz but none of them made me feel anything like the first part of gantz did, maybe it was because gantz was the only sc fi based one (I love sc fi and fantasy crap) that I read or maybe it was the combination of sc fi and the little bit of school drama, power tripping that the MC was involved in that got me.

wtf does that shitty ass visual novel have to do with gantz

gantz was good with a very kinda there plot that went to shit because of a convoluted final arc
>>
>>133872141
Yeah I guess we could probably agree the worst part was everything after Osaka up to the troll aliens.
Basically the moment he introduced the human eating giants

Oh and also the fact he somehow decided to focus on the least interesting characters instead of building on the best ones

>The psychics
>Muscle Rider
>The Osaka Team

Instead he apparently thought more Kurono and Tae shenanigans was the best way to go.

I actually think Tae was an interesting addition, if only to show how much Kurono had matured as a character (true love isn't about looks, etc), but that shit should have ended once he rescued her when she got targetted by Gantz. Everything after that was so unecessary and cringe worthy
>>
>>133872275
Because I do none of that?
>>
>>133872338
The base concept was interesting, but I wish Oku had teamed up with an actual writer instead of thinking he was going to get away with making shit as he went

Seems like the new one is going down the same way, shame really.

By a large margin.

Better art
Better plot

Anime went original end at a point the manga was only getting started.
Be aware the manga does become shit eventually, just much later than the anime.

>>133871278
>>133872164

Something I liked about Gantz was the attempted balance between their real lives and the death game and how their development was reflected in both.

No character was safe, and their terrible home-situations was the only breath of fresh air the survivors had in-between hunts. But as things got worse that peace started to break down. So people either learned to work together or hoped that they were crazy enough to make it as a loner.

It wasn't a complex set-up, but it was an interesting way to explore the cast. Shame that things had to get convoluted for the ending.
>>
>>133872689
The anime had more issues with pacing and ended right when the protagonist starts getting some development. The manga has its issues but it was still the better version.

>>133876318
I don't really understand what makes it shit, it's a death-game series that doesn't take itself too seriously and that's what makes it so entertaining. What don't you like about it?

Every game has different rules, so it never really feels stale. I prefer it to Gantz easily.
>>
>>133869585

so what did gantz turn out to be? whats the blacks ball and where does it come from?
>>
>>133876467
The first series was alright, it sort of reminded of early Gantz. After reading all these death games though, that's what I think the problem is, it's just the same thing over and over again, despite the rules slightly changing. Like Real Account, the premise was sort of neat, but then, it just couldn't stop being the same old death game shit but with twitter.

The second season just got even more stupid and ridiculous. The characters are really uninteresting and could probably be described with one sentence descriptions. All my interest just died.
>>
>>133876485

Man inside a ball made by aliens so the humans could protect the earth.
Thinking back that whole Room of Truth made no sense, the ultimate beings cared about ants yet said they didn't care about humans dying
>>
>>133876654
>rules slightly changing
>slightly

Gantz fits what you describe way more. It's just kill this thing, rinse and repeat.

In kamisama no iutoori each game is an entirely different puzzle, it even turned into a battle manga temporarily with the god powers. I can understand if you found it boring, but to say it's repetitive isn't really giving the series it's credit.

You're right about the 2nd series protagonists though, they aren't interesting at all. And I often find myself getting the girls confused. But the games are still as interesting as ever.
>>
>>133876887
Not within a series, but across series. Kamisama no Iutoori are rehashes of lots of games.

some are, but the way KnI handles strategies with games that rely on probability and luck are pretty good.
>>
>>133876865
The idea was that the invaders were upsetting the natural balance of things so the Room of Truth Aliens were taking steps to rectify it by creating Gantz. They used humans, but didn't prioritize their lives above anything else on Earth.

I'm not a big fan of it either, considering the effort they made to save humanity while bothering to reach out to the reporter in Germany about the truth, but I guess it is an attempt at an explanation.
>>
>>133869585
How about no,

No joke i think Gantz became the worst written manga i read as it went on, everything from vampires to those retarded aliens and those gods or what ever was so fucking stupid it retroactively made the whole series shit.

Low hope for now, but I'll stay optimistic. Like >>133869744 said, though, this probably won't amount to much.
>>
I actualy love gantz more because of how meaningless the ending was.

In a series where the main point was just fucked up enemies, it's very fitting for the end to be "lol we just helped you for fun."
>>
>>133869585
The anime had me feeling confused with life, depressed, exhilarated, and craving more for weeks after I finished it. So great. I'm almost through the manga now, the spoilers on this post have me worried the ending couldn't possibly live up to expectations. Then I will feel the supreme despair, just like a character from Gantz! :)

Inuyashiki?

It is a bit weird right now, a lot of drama, but It doesnt seem like the plot is advancing at all ...
I won't drop it,because Gantz had also a slow beginning
