Library Journal Review

Things look bleak for our heroes as the Osaka mission reaches its climax. With the Osaka Gantz squad decimated and little Takeshi mortally wounded, Kaze steps up to face the Nurarihyon alien in hand-to-hand combat. Despite Kaze's strength, the alien's regenerative powers prove to be too much to handle, and leadership falls to the character Kato who leads the survivors in a desperate last-ditch attack. Help from an unlikely ally finally brings the carnage to an end but not without painful, personal cost to Kato. After the scores are tallied, a very familiar face is brought back into the game, and Nishi reveals that the clock is ticking not only for the Gantz teams but possibly for all humanity! Verdict Another big serving of the gory, over-the-top action that fans of the series have come to expect. Definitely not for the squeamish. Recommended for adrenaline junkies and lovers of the grotesque.-Neil Derksen, Pierce Cty. Lib. Syst., Tacoma (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
