Sometimes big things come in small packages. And our Gantz hero, Kei, might want to consider that in this volume of the frantic and weird, angsty and sexy manga by Hiroya Oku.

Gantz's cross between the real world of teenage complications and the totally sci-fi concept of aliens occupying an unwitting Earth is a hit with a cross section of comics and manga readers. Each volu

After what happened in Volume 8 of this series, you'd think maybe things would calm down. But no, things just get worse. Which should be the tagline for the end of every volume of Gantz: Things Get So Much Bloody Worse.

I'm always conflicted with this series, partly because the lead character is such a dick and because of the horrific violence in each volume. It's just unrelenting. And yet, the need to see just how all of this will turn out keeps me coming back. Which is the sign of a great story

Good lord, and here I thought the Gantz manga could not possibly get any more violent, any more bloody, or any more terrifying. WRONG.

Ya llegó el psicópata entre psicópatas por excelencia, y el cuarto de la bola negra nunca volverá a ser el mismo...
Who's that guy, actually? O.o

How could he fought like that, as if he has seen some crazy alien before?

And how come that alien come to this world. He supposed to live in Gantz world!!

Dan adegan pembantaian teman-teman sekelas Kurono (bener-bener temen sekelasnya semua) sih langsung diskip-skip aja... #puke

A lot of blood and violence, one of the most unpredictable comics ever made, my weekly dose of Japanese madness.
