The source material for GANTZ is pretty intense and various entities have attempted to adapt the manga in various forms including an anime series and a series of live action feature films. None have been quite as successful in their attempt. So, it’s no surprise that this new adaptation has us ever so cautiously optimistic.
The original manga was infamous for its ultra violence and often x-rated situations, but the real draw was the total unpredictability of the narrative. There’s a great opportunity in there, but so far no one has quite had the guts to bring it to life.
