Library Journal Review

Repeatedly thrown into combat against aliens by the mysterious entity known only as Gantz, young Kei Kurono and an ever-changing roster of friends, rivals, and nameless cannon fodder struggle to survive and make sense of their situation. In addition to the blood-soaked battle scenes readers have come to expect, these volumes reveal several surprising new twists. Chief among these are the death of Kei's girlfriend, Tae, and the possibility of her resurrection if Kei can rack up 100 points in Gantz's murderous game. To do so, he and the team will have to overcome the deadliest, most bizarre group of aliens yet! Despite some welcome scenes of character development, plot details are still in short supply. Readers hoping for any clues about Gantz's origins, plans, or ultimate goal will again be frustrated. Verdict This long-running hit series provides a full day's supply of blood, guts, guns, swords, sex, death, and monsters. Recommended for mature readers who crave intense action.-Neil Derksen, Gwinnett Cty. P.L., Lawrenceville, GA (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
