Stunning!
26 September 2017 | by skecysSee all my reviews

As with other reviewers here I came across this little gem browsing Netflix.

I guess Gantz is pretty big in Japan for them to be able to make something this amazing. The animation and overall design quality is simply incredible.

Any mature anime fan will love this regardless of knowing the backstory.

The main reason I'm "reviewing" this title is because I see many people complaining about the laughable dialogue. To circumvent this, watch it in it's original Japanese language with subtitles!
