I have read the Gantz manga, but have not seen the anime. I can tell you that the anime is pretty non-canonical when it comes to the ending, because spoiler[Kurono is still with everybody fighting to escape from Gantz.]

No. There are no English manga. There isn't even any word as to who has licensed it yet.

spoiler[No, Kurono is dead. HS slashed him up, remember?]

OP: The Gantz manga is incredible, far better than the subpar anime series.

HUH?! I didn't read up to that point. I was actually referring to the difference between the time frame of the anime ending and the part of the manga where the anime ends.

That's really recent, like only 5 chapters back from the latest.

I used to read it but it's so slow and it takes forever for new chapters to come out.

[EDIT: Ooooh look at me, I think I have power. -TK]

Believe me, at least it's better being slow than no chapter at all Wink , Although i think i read somewhere and probably was some biassed fan speculation that the mangakan was rather interested in working on another manga. I do love Gantz but at the same time i don't really, not excessively to a point that i'm madly enjoying it. But it's likely that i'm more interested in the mangakan particular approach of creating his manga, though Gantz has many flaws but i still think that he can do better if he continue on another work. therefore i'd prefer if Gantz was dropped.

Somewhere along the line I thought this got licensed, but I guess I should have known better to think that a series as graphic and violent as this would have been licensed here already. I loved what I read of Gantz when I was in Japan. The collection I saw, which was actually in the lobby of this ryokan we were all staying at, had I think the first 20 or so chapters. I was surprised to see nearly nude girls between the volumes. Embarassed

Still I hope it comes over here at some point. I'd certainly put some money into it.

Yeah, those pinups are one of the main reasons why I read the manga back in the Japan, sure there was some interesting stuff in the story itself spoiler[(such as Kurono literally asking a girl to have sex with him, which she did)], but the author was also able to create the character of Kurono spoiler[(who I have no idea of whether he is the main character anymore or not)] to be really hateable with that poor whiny attitude of his.

One of the best things about this manga (besides violence and gore) is the character development. Kurono was a spoiled immature brat at the beginning of the series, but later on becomes more mature especially after spoiler[Everyone else on his team dies, and he dates Tae.] I think alot of the lasting appeal in this manga is in the characters and how they grow through their experiences.
