Gantz is a interesting series throughout. Volume 3 is probably one of the weaker volumes yet it still contains some awesome moments. Kei and crew made it and they're trying to adjust to normal life again. It's not easy and nothing seems right but they try their best. That's when Kei's crush wants to live with him as! You guessed. Welcome to Japan. Also a new game is about to begin at the end that starts to really get this series going again.

What I liked: Kei is a dumbass. He is rude, he

Three days and as many volumes. This one is mostly a bunch of lame teenage angst, and embarrassingly sexist behavior from the male characters. It doesn't get good until the last couple chapters when Gantz is back in the picture.
I have been dodging the problematic treatment of women in this series, which numerous other reviewers have written about in spades. And I'm going to continue to do so, because this review was about to get way too confessional. Let's just say that as a feminist, this

This was almost a DNF volume for me. Without the excitement of Gantz and the game, we are left with the horny, hapless adolescent life of Kei. Needless to say his teenage drama did not an engaging read make. The story of the bullies and the pseudo love triangle of Kei, Kato, and Naked Suicide Girl where just not interesting. Also, the disgusting fan service got kicked up to 11 when the only female in the series decided to become the pet.of the perpetually, disgustingly horny Kei. Although I want ...more

this manga is so cool it deals with the protagonists normal life and ofc the incredible action and utterly and absolutely sexy and i have take a few peeks at some advanced volumes and the action is going to only get better and i am actually waiting for the turning point in the action to give it the whole five stars.

> This is a review of the entire series.

I almost gave up on Gantz several times, but now that I've read it all the way to the end, I'm glad I stuck with it. The beginning is dragged down by repulsive and unlikable characters, a messily paced story, unnecessary sexualization and gratuitous violence without much substance. As it progresses, however, the character development becomes pretty incredible and the growing threat of the enemies feels truly well done. Once the real enemies are

While I'm liking the mystery surrounding Kei and Kato's deaths and the overall idea of Gantz, there was just way too much nudity in this volume. I'm all for mature ratings, but there is literally the same nude girl practically every chapter or chapter page, which took away from everything. Right now, to me, she's useless besides being a damsel and the meaning of her duplicate. I hope the next volume is more action related. I like giving any genre of mangas a chance if it has a good story, but ...more

These read so fast that they are almost over as soon as you begin. The main characters live in a world of youth violence. They were also transported to a world of alien violence. The art and story is pretty good but is hard to explain without giving away the story.

Okay... this was a bit weird. The story is unique but I can't say I enjoyed it. It was just... weird :( I can't think of any other way to put it. All the same however, it does pull you in. I kept reading for three volumes because I had a urge to see what happened. But I'm not really enjoying it at the same time. That doesn't make sense I know, and it's confusing me too so I decided I'd stop at volume three and move on to something else. :)

DNF- I came here for the aliens and tripped out sci-fi and all I got was this crappy pile of sexist gibberish and male angst.

Annnnnd this is where I jump off the Gantz train and throw myself under the wheels of the NOPE train instead. And with any luck I'll wake up tomorrow morning as if the last thirty minutes of boob and angst infested trash never happened. Being a fan of the live action films (which you SHOULD totally watch - five stars), and having never seen the anime (I think there is an

Boobs. Boobs. And wait for it... more boobs. Gantz, Vol. 3 is a pre-pubescent boy's wet dream. There isn't a heck of a lot going on in this volume, so perhaps Hiroya Oku is trying to distract the reader from zoning out by slapping ginormous boobs on every page. The gratuitous shower scene is redonkulous.

I take back what I said in my last review about Kei Kurono seeming to not be so bad. This guy is so sukebe! He's pretty much a walking hard-on. On the other hand, I am liking Kato
Alexander Engel-Hodgkinson
The first half of this volume is more-or-less a hit-or-miss. Not much happens in Vol. 3. The two Keis reunite, with Suicide Kei proposing to become Train Kei's pet, for some strange reason. I get that she needs a place to stay, since she's now just a copy of herself while the real thing lives at her house, but I don't see why going the whole nine yards to 'pet' status for a hopelessly horny fifteen-year-old is necessary when all she could have asked is, "Can I crash at your place for the night?" ...more

Kei, Kishimoto, and Kato have all went back to living their lives in the real world. Kei uses the suit from Gantz to stop a bully, which was actually pretty cool. I still feel like the author relies waaayyyy too much on Kishimoto and sex appeal in this series. By the end of the volume, Kei, Kishimoto, and Kato are all back in the Gantz world, along with the other survivor, Nishi (who I still find very creepy) along with many new players, among them being a grandmother and her grandson. I'm kind ...more

Kishimoto is beyond annoying, but so is Kato. Kishimoto is so lucky to have a second chance at life since her old one sucked so bad she killed her self (am i right)? ? ? She must be pretty desperate to run to Kurono's house for living arrangements, and expect to be treated as a pet. Hello?? She should know that he is a giant perv (as are most teenage boys.

I can't imagine dying and having someone tell me I'm going to on an alien hunt I would laugh until it hurt and then just cry when I found out
I continue enjoying this series. This volume does explain a few things, so if you were a bit lost from the first two, this volume may help settle things down. It will also get you hooked into looking for the next volume. There is a new group pulled in by the mysterious Gantz to hunt the onion aliens. However, some of the previous participants, who thought they were now off the hook, have been pulled back in as well. Is no one safe?

this volume really explained more and helped move the plot line along nicely. The last volume left me wondering WHAT!?!??!? This explained much and now has me hooked for the next couple volumes. glad i did not give you on it. This is adult fair--nudity and violent. I read it for the unique story line. Shojo gets boring when you are 47--This is Sci-fi meets shojo. A wild ride. Looks like new figures join up, for some do not make it .........
This volume really confused me. It could just be that it's been so long since I read volume 2, but I felt like this part of the story was disjointed. It was also quite boring, in my opinion. There just wasn't much action. I can see where it's progressing though and I'm still completely interested. The sexuality is overt but it doesn't seem to detract from the story. I'm hoping I enjoy the next few volumes a lot more than this one, though.

i can see why i liked this when i was 15. The sexuality is... japanese, and the in-between-battles bits are slightly dull. However those segments get better as I recall, and its totally worth seeing the "aliens" in combat anyways.

Honestly this is disgustingly brutal. Detailed art, and an intense storyline to go along with it. Think GTA meeting Aliens; then having a illegitimate lovechild calling it Gantz! Read with care. My ratings for my kid's is that they can read it when they're oh never...

Many readers call this chapter simply a low point, but it was too much for me with the two dumb Keis. Constant sexual objectification of women throughout the manga is not as much offensive as stupid. Too stupid for me.
