This review is for the entire series, it contains no major spoilers and is for the anime only. Gantz presents all of the best elements that a series in the mindless gore genre should provide. It's positively chalked full of blood, sex, violence, dark comedy, unpredictably, and absurdity. If you enjoy Robert Rodriquez and the likes of Dusk Till Dawn, Machete, and Planet Terror you WILL enjoy many of things that Gantz has to offer. The most promising trait Gantz has is that it is willing to kill off any character, main or minor, at any time. This creates a very intense suspenseful environment that read more

Gantz is gritty. Gantz is gruesome. Gantz is a show where a bunch of people who have died essentially become the Japanese MIB, only with a Battle Royale twist.

Now that may sound like an intriguing premise, but let me continue. I'm a pretty easy going guy and I can tolerate more nonsense than most people. For instance, I've actually watched (and in some cases enjoyed) Ikkitousen, Elfen Lied, Mezzo Forte and even some hentai, so I know tasteless when I see it. Gantz is many things, but someone would have a hard time trying to defend it as tasteful. Everyone, including old folks, kids, read more

Recommendations

Elfen Lied and Gantz revolve around shock value and how it can be turned into a narrative devise. Both push the envelope in terms of graphic violence and excessive gore with plenty of nudity to boot. EL has peaceful interludes that keep it from becoming utterly without hope while Gantz hardly ever slackens its pace of bloody action. These series manage to horrify and move the viewer, in EL the cute character design makes the massacres all the more poignant while Gantz's mostly realistic design adds an air of verisimilitude to the insanity.

A psychological thriller that focuses on human nature and violence. It puts people into a situation that tests their morality in order to survive. The main characters are very similar and they are both action-packed and mildly disturbing.
