  1. Sticky: Poll: [Chapter] Re: Gantz 383 [Final Chapter] Spoiler Discussion Thread

    It's not just them. It's the rich and powerful from around the world, not just Japan. You could just asspull that they were all killed in similar situations.

    Read it recently; I enjoyed it. It's just another case of 'Everyone Dies: The Manga', like Gantz, SnK, etc. where anyone who has an iota of development will almost certainly be killed off or has...

    [Chapter] Re: Gantz 378 Spoiler Discussion Thread

    Almost the entirety of Catastrophe has been awful. It had quite a fair bit of potential, but it's been really bad and drawn out.
