Me gustó mucho cómo se resuelve la primera misión. Crueldad y miseria humana expuestas sin mucho disimulo y con un despliegue visual hiperviolento y grotesco que se disfruta con algo de culpa. En la edición original se pasaron un par de errores pero estaba bastante bien igual.

Disgusting psychological mindfuckery. Me likey.

When the very first page starts off like this, how can you resist it?
(view spoiler)

Flesh and guts torn asunder! The chaos and WTF-is-going-on theme set by the first volume continues on in Gantz, Vol. 2. I have no bloody idea what the hell is going on, but that's what I love. The story isn't predictable and it keeps me constantly guessing.

I didn't like Kei Kurono at all in the first volume, but he sort o...more

This is turning into an interesting series. I think folks who like works like Battle Royale, maybe The Hunger Games and the series Lost, might like this as well. I think it may be more suited if you like Battle Royale because it means you probably can handle and/or like gore and sex with your manga, which I do. However, there is that element of dysfunction or mystery--people being pulled into some circumstance where they are forced to fight to survive-- that I think folks will find appealing. An...more
Avec ce deuxième tome vient le fameux retour à la normale, qui permet aux héros de voir que leur première aventure les a changé eux, même si le monde n'a pas changé autour d'eux ... Oui enfin, tout ça arrive après une méchante salade de phalange pour l'un des monstres ...
Et ce retour est assez improbable : le personnage qui est sur la couverture, Keï, se fait racketter, et se découvre une passion libidineuse pour sa compagne d'aventure. Elle, en revanche, subit des trucs un chouïa plus traumatis...more
Very different from my usual read. I think its seems very interesting and keeps me wanting to read more to find out whats going on. I'm really not crazy about the art work especially the character art work none of the characters are appealing and the boobie girl & Kei look like they're siblings possibly twins its weird. The back grounds are kinda boring, but the violent scenes are done very well and I also like the suits, gunz, and Gantz.

It's been a while since I read any manga, and I suspect that ongoing series like this are now in my past. While the second volume (or second half of the story started in the first) is okay, I'd forgotten just how many pages manga can waste on running and guttural noises.

I couldn't help but feel sorry for people who read this over the months this must have originally taken to appear in its original form when, by comparison, this much setup would have been covered in six issues of something like...more
Super, super a ještě jednou super. Rozhodně lepší než jednička. Nabité akcí od začátku až do konce. Hmmm... to byla slast!
Too sparse....and detached.
Aight. Peaked way too early. Mostly just communicating details of how the universe works which I already knew because its my second read. Possibly an unfair score on that count.
Un tome 1 minable, un deuxième bien meilleur, du fan service un peu poussif et pourtant un excellent manga. L'individualisme et l'égoïsme humain à son paroxysme...
A continuation of the bloody gore of the previous volume. Gets an extra star for its expanding of the rules of Gantz as well as some necessary character development.

At this point in the series, it seems to be a mix of the manga 'Battle Royale' & the television series 'Lost'. I'm really eager to read what happens next...

Mildly interesting, but a fl?ight seen taking up nearly the entire book? More substance, please.
Interesting, but I'm getting sick of the useless naked girl running around.
Nomad nimrod
Bit better than the first volume.
The fight with the big onion is a drag.
