I liked it. Everybody cheering as the heroes return home is a nice ending.
>>
>>162210044
It was a good ending which could have been better executed

Showing some aftermath would help.

Uh, nice to hear, i just marathoned the manga and liked it too. I started reading it in the first place because in a /tv/ thread about the new movie a bunch of anons said the ending was crap and called the author a hack, before that i didn't even know it ended

But then again it's fucking /tv/

Speaking of the movies, are the live action ones worth checking out? I think the second is original material or something

Don't bother. Just watch O and listen to super shooter.

it kinda just trailed on at the end.

>>162210422

>>
>>162210044

I liked it.
The entire final arc was pretty bad imo though.

Same with Inu Yashiki, I liked the ending but the arc it was involved in was awful.
>>
>>162210544
What didn't you like? I thought it dragged on for too long and that the last giant was kinda boring but i liked the general idea
>>
>>162210341
I disagree. I think Gantz has always been about big, heroic moments, and very little else. That's why there are vampires and psychics and a muscleman delinquent out of nowhere; the author thought they were cool, and they were used for cool moments. An epilogue would be superfluous.
>The company behind Gantz gets in legal trouble
>Something with the remaining aliens on Earth
>These characters get married, these characters have a kid
>>
Pretty much what everyone said before, the ending by itself wasn't that bad.

However it could be greatly improved but I felt it was rushed, also the last arc and final chapters had a super slow pacing and I was very salty about it because I was current since '06 and the final chapters were very deus-ex machina
>>
>>162210044
The pacing went straight down the shitter with the Osaka arc, and everything else afterwards, just got worse.
Many questions were not answered like the Vampires, while others were pretty boring, like the Gantz ball origin and what the aliens were.
Also, the God aliens scene was easily the worse moment in the manga by far.

It's a good ending, but there are so many loose ends: 1) The vampires 2) Kurono's brother 3) Kurono 2 (which had a very anti-climatic ending) 4) The annoying plot-armor of Tae
In the end, Gantz has a great premise, but Oku did not know how to develop the story in a good way, as if throwing what he thought was cool, but without thinking about how he works it. Good to see that in Inuyashiki he learned from the mistakes.
>>
>>162211354
Akira was killed by the vampires for his betrayal
>>
>>162211354
I hated when he put vampires in Gantz. It was like "What the hell?"
And then I hated when he forgot the vampires in the final arc.
>>
>The real MC and friends died and only copies of them survived.
Always spooped me somehow.
>>
>>162211501
Yeah, but even after Kurono revives, he does not even touch the subject once. Honestly, I expected more from this plot, but it disappears like the vampires after the Osaka mission
>>
>>162211537
They were in the crowd watching Kei fighting the last giants. I think he wanted to imply they turned good or at least uninterested in hunting humans/gantzers, but then again don't they still need humans to feed? In that seminary thingie the guy was explaining to newcomers they could eat normal food but it would make them feel sick
>>
>>162211659
n that seminar, they say they are enemies of the hunters, and for some reason need to kill them. Why? In the end no answer is given and the plot is cast aside, to the point that I wonder why it first crushed the vampires in the story.
>>
>True villains of the series show up, gloat a bit, ressurect and then kill some characters and then blow up Clone Kurono and fuck off.
I'm still mad.
>>
>>162211818
Pretty sure they're the bad good guys. If it weren't' for them humanity would've been driven instinct or in slavery.

>villains
They were kinda dicks, but I wouldn't call them villains. They did give humanity a fighting chance, after all.
>>
>>162211818
>True villains
explain. I thought they were literal on the side of humanity just to fuck the bigger aliens.
Like Allies to us and bad to them.
>>
>>162211858
>censored
I would love to fap to some kind of human with Hilter in "her" chest.
>>
>>162211758
Well, supposedly that doesn't need a specific answer because the last arc reveals every alien race they fought were space refugees, so if they were to know a group of super soldiers were hunting them down then they'd retaliate

But that begs the question of wether the vampires were actually aliens or not, because if they were how was Kei's brother among them. Were they humans corrupted by the oni alien or something and used as cannon fodder against Gantz?

>>162211818
I liked it, I'm happy they sticked to a theme and made them too big to care about humanity instead of involving them in another sword fight
>>
>>162211867
The other aliens tried to fuck with them first so they decided to fuck with them by providing us with the shit to make Gantz happen. They could have easily destroyed the other aliens but decided to be cosmic dicks about it and create another huge war between two races for fun.
They basically just show up to be assholes about everything and reveal they were the mastermind behind everything
>>
>>162211934
The only character who might have stood even a remote chance was an even more developed Cherry, he was quickly becoming some sort of god Esper but died before he became even more powerful.
>>
>>162211951
They weren't really the mastermind, as they explain they gave us the tech but it was the corrupt politicians of earth that decided to implement it like they did

These super-aliens were asshole but they didn't really have control of anything, they didn't care to
>>
>>162212004
nah, his body couldn't handle it like the glorious god race
>>
So was the first Koruno also a copy of the one who died in the subway?
>>
>>162211934
But vampires were not aliens. Kurono's brother was human by the way. So why were they in conflict with Ganzt?
>>
>>162211934
The vampires were just there to give a outside threat to the Gantzers, when the game wasn't being played.
Kurono's brother, the disease, the blood parties, all of that was just wasted pages for a group that could have easily been replaced by an alien enemy.
>>
>>162212107
Yeah, they were all copies. Did you forget, Kishimoto was copied by Gantz too early and when she went home she found out her original self survived the suicide attempt and went on with her normal life

>>162212111
Reread my post, I'm suggesting the vampires were humans corrupted into monsters by the Oni alien which seemed to be their boss
>>
>>162212198
>Did you forget, Kishimoto
I literally did. Wasn't she only relevant in the first few chapters?

>>
>>162212241
Well yeah, she died relatively early. But she was resurrected for about two seconds by the alien gods, and Kato meets her original self sometimes before the final arc. It's funny, back when the series started it was all about her and her huge knockers but eventually Reika overshadowed her in all material. Can't even find decent porn

I didn't hate it, but I was glad it was finally over. I used to love it but it dragged on too long. The last arc was too ridiculous to me and most of my favorite characters had been killed off except for Muscle Rider. I really hated Kurono and Tae at the end of it. Would have been a great ending if they both drowned.

i forgot, what happened to the alien civilization?
did the humans captured them or destroyed them?

I hated most of it.
>>
>>162217418
destroyed them and captured them
>>
>>162217418
>>162217481
Didn't the morhership get away because Kei refused to blow it up leaving only a military one to be captured?
>>
>>162217481
>>162217664
i think the mothership got destroyed because of that last soldier's suicide, exterminating the whole civilization
>>
I really enjoyed when the final invasion ocurred and Kurono goes ham on the aliens and reveals that he's a goddamn beast to a bunch of kids that thought nothing good of him and the entire school ends up following.
>>
>>162210927
>Many questions were not answered like the Vampires
they were fucking explained, why the fuck do people keep asking this question? It was fucking explained how they came to be, and the reason why Oku wrote them out cause he's a bad writer and didn't know how to write them in.

I didn't like the beginning so I dropped it after few volumes. I don't really get its appeal.

Wacky aliens, violence, mystery, boobs
>>
>>162224648
How could you not love how much of an asshole the protagonist is?
>>
What's a good chapter to just start reading Gantz? I don't have the patience to read from the beginning.
>>
>>162226130
If you really must, start at the end of the second trial and get into it with the third. That's when it starts to get really good.
>>
>>162226130
Watch the anime's first season or the new CG movie, if you like it then go on with the whole manga. I don't think there's really a good starting point in the middle, things always change gradually (in fact when i first saw the CG movie i got confused because the rules of the game changed, and i didn't know if it was the movie getting into OC territory or what)
>>
>>162210044
>alien invaders massacre literally millions and millions of people
>"government" and aliens sign peace treaty
>everyone suddenly forgets about it, is interested in them and their culture and hate on the ones that keep fighting them
That was completely idiotic.
>>
>>162210044
Not a bad ending, just rushed. The giant Hitler-Dog thing was basically the author saying "here's all the exposition that I don't have time to give in a more organic manner" and the whole arc with journalist in Germany was dropped midway so he could just appear in the ending and say "lol I discovered everything!".
>>
>>162210044
I didn't mind it. But the entire giant alien invasion thing seemed like a completely different series from what came before it.
>>
>>162224648
Interesting, people usually love the beginning and begin disliking it as it goes.
>>
>>162226130
Then don't fucking read it, what kind of retarded idea is that? Forcing yourself to read it just for the sake of saying that you read it to /a/?
>>
>>162226414
Well not really, if you see a super advanced civilization destroying your planet you'd be pretty relieved that a peace treaty was being signed. After all as far as the common people goes there's no way in hell humanity could possibly win the war. Being interested in them and their culture is definitely retarded in such a small amount of time but hating on the ones that kept fighting is somewhat understandable since they'd basically be terrorists and you wouldn't want the peace treaty to break and for the aliens to start killing humans again would you?
>>
>>162226662
I still want to read it.
>>
>>162226662
I want to be loved by /a/
>>
>>162226939
Go ahead, vol.1, ch.1.
>>
>>162210044
The end is just the final spit, the disaster started way before in the vampires introduction.
