Gantz Ends

June 26, 2013

Manga

13 years gone by and the larger then life adventure named Gantz ends, after three arcs and numerous adversaries defeated as well as a countless number of friends and regular people killed , there are still important unanswered questions left .It is revealed that it was a highly advanced alien species who provided mankind with the means to defend itself against the invaders, for reasons they insist to not reveal. So who build Gantz on Earth, who was the man inside the sphere ,and more importantly if this was just a test for the humans who will have to fight against the alien invasion , why all this powerful people who proved they can fight but died against the overwhelming odds , like Kurono Kei did, did not get resurrected back for the final fight, what was the point. if not for training ?

The end is bitter sweet , it feels rushed , it’s done in one chapter , our heroes defeat the aliens and manage to get back and collapse in the hands of their loved ones . All the other people that died aren’t brought back .

Well it appears that the author Hiroya Oku will release another story called “The origin of Gantz” which hopefully will solve some of the mysteries .

It was a good read , in spite of some of it’s flaws and I remember eagerly awaiting for each of it’s releases . It will be missed.

    It feels so rushed. Why are there vampires? Who was the vampire hunting group? Was it Gantz members? Where did the spaceship go? How could they have survived travelling through space without air and how did they enter atmosphere without immense heating? And last but not least where did this shitty alian arc come from, that made no frigging sense at all?

    What were your favorite mini arcs? Mine are when Kurono fought the white Alien all alone in his school and the dinosaur arc. The worst arc probably was the Catastrophe arc with the giant alien. I mean the author wasted so much time showing how Kuronos useless gf got captured by that alien. That alone wasted 5 chapters but the ending got wrapped up in just 3 paged.

    I agree with silv that the ending was incredibly rushed. This series had so much potential. I absolutely loved Phase 1, where Kurono kept growing and developing. The Dino Arc and the next battle where his team had to take out the 4 separate groups of Aliens were kickass. And then the series went downhill afterwards. I disliked how many of the characters were one-dimensional, and there were many plot holes.

    - There was one unexplained battle where the world’s Gantz teams were being massacred by flying Roman/Greek sculptures. What was that about? How does the rest of the world not notice these events?
    - During the invasion of Earth, why didn’t the Gantz teams release the giant mechs earlier? Those giant mechs could easily take out the enemy mechs.
    - How did Kurono get so powerful at the end? I can’t imagine him being anywhere close to the strongest fighters from the other countries. His forte was always luck.
    - There was that incredibly strong 1-shapeshifting monster that nearly took out both Kurono’s team and the Kansai team. It seems a bit lacking that he had a final form. I would’ve assumed that he had an infinite number of forms or god-like powers similar to those of the alien race that created the Gantz suits.
    - Why do the characters get emotional over discovering that there is no classical God? You’d think they’d have an open mind after dealing with all that Alien crap.

    Have to agree with you guys, I was also left wondering about the immediate danger of the crashing mothership just disappearing. Guess the God-level aliens intervened again or something.

    I’m disappointed and a bit angry , i mean how can he, an author, who put all this effort into his work that made him famous. He writes for 13 years month after month then just throws a crappy ending and bam it’s over bye bye baby . I feel sorry for him he destroyed his own work.
