Drumrug explained it perfectly imo. I started reading Gantz as one of my first manga and I thought it was pretty good at the time because of the boobs and violence. Kei even becomes likable somewhere in the middle. Things seemed to get better. But then someone told the mangaka to finish it so he wrote that terrible ending.

Drumrug | 4 hours ago
Gantz is simple. You have a very expandable cast of random strangers fight against variety of different targets, from onion people to mythological creatures. It's not a sophisticated story with deep characters, just humans and aliens fucking each other up over and over.
If it was less serious and dialed back the shitty drama between characters nobody cares about it could've been pretty good. Also if a lot of the art didn't go to shit in latter half, Oku started applying some weird filters/screen tones on monsters and it all looked like a mess.

Hey, so, on the Anime Nomination list, there's entries for "Future Boy Conan" as well as "Mirai Shounen Conan"
They're both the same anime so it shouldn't be split up.

I even enjoyed the anime of gantz(2nd season) which is supposed to be shitty adaptation of manga according to fans.

Watching all the annoying characters getting butchered by Buddha was a blast, I can only imagine how enjoyable it would be for manga readers, also sex scenes a.k.a "mature show for mature people".

JW since I've seen it in the resurrect a manga category rated fairly highly, what do people tend to enjoy about Gantz?
