6th arc actually since the anime covered around 150 chapters of the manga that translated to 4 arcs. the manga also as the aftermath of the temple arc and as i stated in my previous reply the assasination of tae kojima and the disappearance of kurono kei. which are 2 shorts arcs where they introduce vampires


1st -> Onion Alien Mission
2nd -> Tanaka Alien Mission
3rd -> Buddhist Temple Alien Mission
4th -> Kill Kei Kurono Mission
5th -> Shorty Alien Mission
6th -> Dinosaur Alien Mission
7th -> Ring Alien Mission
8th -> Kill Tae Kojima Mission
9th -> Oni Alien Mission
10th -> Nurarihyon Alien Mission

you are right man, thought the oni, dinossaur and ring alien were after the osaka (nurarihyon) arc. sorry

This is a movie of the Osaka arc, this is like the 10th Gantz arc and starts in volume 21, chapter 239(but has an initial part that starts in 228)

This actually looks a lot better than I had expected. Also hoping for another season or remake TV series in the future..

No need for it unless they cut the fillers in the last six episodes and picked up where the anime finished the manga adaptation , starting with the attack on tae and the disappearance of kurono

Ah what a shame, I thought they would start with a remake of the whole bunch.

Really excited about this now, the realistic/game type CG is much smoother and looks pretty awesome, so action scenes should look awesome.

This looks damn awesome, Gantz is always lit so I'm really looking forward to this.

This looks nice. I am sure people will complain about "this not being 2D" anyway because its one of ongoing memes alongside hating on dubs.

Apr 27, 2016 7:07 PM by silversaint

im not worried about the quality of the visuals considering this will have a movie budget and seeing Digital Frontier also have done the Tekken Blood Vengeance movie im sure this will be action packed as well
