Zetman is about Justice.

But what is impressive about Zetman is the way it chooses two characters, completely different from each other, puts them side by side and lets us see how their ideas of justice are similar and different.

goals are very different.

Zetman is a Seinen, Sci-fi, Action, Drama that traces the lives of two rival heroes; developing and enacting their own form of judgment in a DC Comics fashion. Still it is a major problem, since you’re mostly unaware of what Zetman is about until much later on.

The too are very similar killing monsters because you have to, blood, gore, death, ect. The only main difference is in Zetman the main character is a "Player" or monster that is designed to kill the other monsters. In Gantz it is regular humans that have died and are now sent to kill random alien/monsters. The art work on both are amazing and the thought that goes into both are amazing.
