I discovered this masterpiece through adult swim on cartoon network when they aired this show around 1am in early morning. I remember hearing the intro song to this anime and immediately being intrigued since it was hip-hop influenced which wasn't something that anime had really done before, but the composers for the songs were done by a japanese producer named Nujabes and American producer Fat Jon along with a Japanese rapper named Shing02. This was truly a dream come true for me because I was heavily influenced by underground hip-hop that had soul to it and this anime had the best hip-hop I had ever heard, I literally looked up the producers as soon as the episode ended to go and listen to more of his work. But aside from the best part of it which is easily the music, the animation was beautifully done and had such a variety of plots for each episode that it always kept me interested, I can truly rate this anime series 10/10 Stars, something you will probably never see me be able to do again. ” - milpz

Partial Nudity, Rape, Sex, Extreme Gore, Profanity, Suicide, Violence

Gantz is not made children as it has a complex story of love relationships, suicide, gore, partial nudity, sex, rape, and profanity. I think that that is a good thing because it allows the story to be understood and analyzed by more serious anime fans.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!WARNING, SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
..........(The following review contains spoilers about Gantz)..........


Ongoing scenes: The characters in this movie hardly used there guns and it made me lose the realistic sense that this anime had been trying to build up, and it makes characters have no common sense.

This anime series adapted pretty well from the manga, although only focuses the first few manga books rather than cramming everything into one anime series. The first thing I realized about this show is the somewhat realistic personalities in the main characters.

Lead Character, Kei Kurono: A perverted teen who thinks about nothing but girls, and doesn't want to help anybody, and has a huge level of arrogance and in the first episode is hit by a train along with his friend after they try to help a homelessman whom has fallen on the tracks.

Second Lead Character, Masuro Kato: Always wants to help people, always thinks he is doing the right thing, and in the end gets whats coming to him also hit by a train.

3rd Lead Character, Kei Kishimoto: The female of the story commits suicide in the bathtub, does nothing but whines and does nothing important until end of anime.

4th Lead Character, Joichiro Nishi: killed himself by jumping off his school rooftop, but has a badass personality.

In the end of this anime, each of the main characters (well the ones who are still left) have learned how to be good human beings.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Likes:~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1. Animation: This blended CGI 3D animation with 2D animation nicely, had a Ghost In The Shell type of style to it which is always a beauty to view.

2. Gore: The gore in Gantz is reason enough to watch this anime. There are some of the most dramatic gore scenes in Gantz that I have ever witnessed out of any anime. The guns that they use are like microwaves that pump radiation into their enemies which cause things to blow up like a balloon.

3. Deaths: Usually the main characters in anime live, but with Gantz you can expect no one to be safe from dying and people die often.

------------------------------------------------------------------
*******************(DISLIKES:)************************

1. Slowness: Throughout the entire anime, I was wondering, "WHY DON'T THEY JUST SHOOT THE DAMN ALIENS?" The characters just often sit back and watch close friends and new friends die like they were robots.

2. Common Sense: The fact that almost every character did not have common sense really annoyed me and made me angry. An example:
When in the beginning of series, when the drunken homeless man falls into train tracks, no one even worries and no one tries to help him up.
This makes the people in this movie feel like robots with no personality.

3. Ending: The ending is one of the dumbest endings in anime ever.

4. Chemistry: The characters hardly had any chemistry with each other and didn't care enough about their lives to want to try to work together and help others understand what was going on.

5. Repetition: The amount of repetition in this series was enough to drive you insane. Every mission followed this premise:

-Someone doesn't put on suit before or during mission and immediately gets killed.

-People sit around and take turns to do things rather than all work together to accomplish mission and return safely.

-People show no emotions and instead stand around and are not shown until after next episode.

-People wait about 3-5 minutes to actually fire guns.

6. Death: Too many people die in this anime to often after being introduced and it doesn't allow character build up.

7. Explainations: There are hardly any explainations of what is happening and what the purpose of killing the Aliens is.

8. Perversion: The creator of this anime obviously must be a pervert himself because there is so many sexual perversions and it makes watching this series awkward and ruins the mood of the story.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

***********UNANSWERED QUESTIONS I HAVE:**************

1. What is Gantz?
2. Where did Gantz come from?
3. Why is everyone teleported to a apartment in Tokyo by Gantz?
4. Why does Gantz like to play games with peoples' lives?
5. Why does Gantz send people back and forth from death to life?
6. What happens if the timer on Gantz for a mission runs out if the Alien is not killed?
7. Why does Gantz not explain what to do in each mission before sending the chosen few that are dead?
8. Why don't the characters work together and have no emotions for eachother?
9. Why is there a point system and why are there only two options if you get 100 points?
10. Why is Gantz in human form inside a metal sphere that has guns and suitcases filled with a power suit?
11. Why are the aliens so human looking and why are they human made statues, robots, ect?
12. Why do the aliens hesitate so long to attack people?
-----------------------------------------------------------------



Overall:
It was a satisfying series even though it is annoying at times.

Likes:

1. Animation: Very cartoony, but very orginal look.

2. Worlds: The worlds in this are like a Halloween Town, very cool.

3. Characters: The characters are funny. have very alive personalities, unique looks, and gorgeous realistic yet cartoony animation.

4. Weirdness: This show is full of weird looking characters and alive worlds just like how in video game "Mario", the hills have eyes.

5. Music: There are a few good songs in this anime, although not enough to fill my expectations.

Dislikes:

1. Predictability: Characterrs are too predictable and so are the fights.

2. Dialogue: Very bad dialogue, does not make characters feel real.
Also it is unneeded in most parts and takes away from action. It is like when people hesitate to kill someone in movies and end up talking so long that they end up getting killed.

3. Partial Nudity: There is too much partial nudity, it trys to be funny but just makes viewer feel like a pervert when they were not intending to.

4. Cute Characters: For a anime that has so much mature content, it is really annoying to have cute characters that are really obnoxious and annoying, truly ruins show for me.

Brief Story:

Shigurui focuses on two disabled swordsmen (one blind, the other one missing an arm) who are about to fight in a competition. Before they fight, the story goes back in time to tell their origin leading up to the final fight.

My Review:

The story comes out very confusing as you have to pay close attention to everything. Often times I was lost, because I didn't know who died or what character was still alive. I'm sorry, but when you have Death Frenzy in the title, I kinda need to know who gets killed. Thats pretty much it story wise, it lacks far too much to keep you interested, but I will give it credit for its' realistic setting, but its still not enough to make up for the slow plot.

This is not your average Samurai-Anime, if you're looking for something action-packed like Ninja Scroll, you won't find it here. If you like the more artsy touch and trippiness of Ghost in the Shell and thrive on atmosphere and just enjoying the animated art, then you're in the right place. There aren't huge battles or war-scenes, the Samurai are mostly dueling, building up tension with dialog and the great score before bursting into short but intense fights. There is some pretty graphic violence, so only recommendable to adults, especially with the slower, more atmospheric style of the series, which can be interpreted as "boring" by viewers with a short attention span.

This anime is just not for kids, nor for women. It's for people who admire Japanese culture and the Samurai. In Shigurui you wont see stupid pop culture junk, like women Samurais that don't exist, or fast hitting katana to katana, as if that is the way of sword fighting. Katana is a one-strike blade and that's how it is done here in Shigurui. The story is extremely slow which can make your bored but very deep overall. It's about concentration and will power. It's about overcoming obstacles and defending honor. Truly one of the best Manga and Anime's I have seen, and if you don't "understand it" , that would be sad and you are really missing out. I just can't stand people writing bad reviews about this masterpiece just because they don't get it, because they enjoy watching stupid childish pointless animes suitable only for children.

But anyhow, when I saw the first episode of Shigurui, I was hooked. If you aren't, then don't bother to watch whole thing, it's not for everyone. This anime is really hard to follow, the story is jumping to past and present and in between... So you really have to concentrate on what is going on or even read the internet for parts you don't get, but in the end it's totally worth it. This is one of best experience that anime can give you, and after watching the anime and not knowing how it will end is a real suspense. I've also read the manga and it's even better. And now I can't wait for the next chapter or the season 2 of Shigurui.
