Storyline

High school student Kei Kurono meets up with childhood friend Kato Masaru one day by chance encounter. As the two are in the subway chatting, Kato notices a homeless man on the subway train tracks. Kato goes down on to the tracks to move the man off the tracks and persuades Kei to help. But soon after helping the man, they are hit by a subway train and killed... or maybe not. Immediately after being hit by the train, the two are suddenly in an apartment from which they can't leave, along with some other people who were also in some near death experience. In this apartment there is also a black sphere called Gantz. Kei and the others have to obey Gantz's rules if they want to live. They have to participate in missions in which the objective is to eliminate aliens. But who or what are these aliens? are Kei, Kato and the others alive or dead? Written by Neuman

My favourite anime of all time.
19 August 2018 | by animefankaSee all my reviews

I've never seen anything like this. The subtle but strong colors, the simple character styles, the AMAZING music, the exciting storyline, everything is great about this tiny little adaptation of a longer (and even better) manga. I even liked the different version of ending that the writers thought of. A definite game changer for me, and it set the bar quite high for me, as far as animes and films go. 10/10 would recommend.
