    Post GANTZ via Dark Horse.

    ( They also scored Vulgar Ghost Daydream. )

    So what do you people here think?

    Yay? Dismay?

    To be honest, I'm quite shocked. I thought for the longest time VIZ was going to do this, since it's Shueisha and everything.

    Inarguably the most highly demanded manga in the last half-decade, the enormously popular seinen manga series, GANTZ, has taken the bright path to Dark Horse. Hiroya Oku, creator of GANTZ, has put together a cast of characters that are both sympathetic and strong to which anyone can relate. The wildly renowned anime, also entitled GANTZ from ADV, primarily follows the same story and has been translated in several different languages captivating audiences all over the world.

    Gantz tells the story of a team of dead people who are forced to take part in a "game" that has them hunting aliens and other creatures who live among the populace of Japan. The story focuses on Kei Kurono, a teenage boy who died saving a homeless man from a train. He, along with a band of others who are recently deceased, is forced to complete a series of dangerous and complicated missions by a strange device called Gantz. On these missions characters can even die again, only to be quickly replaced by others like them. As the plot progresses, so does the intricacy of relationships between characters.

    "Throughout the years, there has been one title that fans approach us about again and again, and that is GANTZ. Dark Horse President/Publisher/Founder Mike Richardson has been pursuing the book since it was released, and we're finally happy to bring GANTZ to English readers. Considered along the same lines as Ghost in the Shell and AKIRA, it is one of the greatest seinen manga ever created. GANTZ has found itself a very fitting home at the world's greatest English-language seinen publisher," explains Michael Gombos, Director of Asian Licensing at Dark Horse Comics.

    Dark Horse is proud to deliver one of the most requested manga ever to be released. GANTZ has obtained a cult-like following that crosses mediums from print to DVD and back again. The devotion of the fans and excitement of the critics push this manga into a category all its own, surpassing any other in its genre.

    GANTZ is tentatively scheduled for a summer 2008 release.

    Well this is something of an american matter, publishing company Dark Horse has licensed the GANTZ manga, and Vulgar Ghost Daydream ( another seinen manga ). Dark Horse publishes Berserk, Hellsing, Trigun Max, among other things here in America.

    Re: GANTZ via Dark Horse.

    Yeah I heard about this. It sounds good to me. I wouldn't want any other company to handle the series since Dark Horse tends to stay true to the original work.

    I'm not sure Viz has an imprint that could have handled Gantz IMHO. Maybe Viz Signature, since they publish the seinen titles, but Gantz is pretty Adult in my opinion.

    I doubt that they'll edit anything out. That's the thing about Dark Horse, they work things that won't work if censored. The most they've done is censor Casca's nude and unconcious body on one of the covers of Berserk and some penis and pussy shots on Crying Freeman.

    Yeah Dark Horse doesn't tamper with their stuff's content much. Thats why their products are in shrink wrap, and have Parental Advisory stickers on them.

    Re: GANTZ via Dark Horse.

    Yah I agree that DH is a good company to pick. They've published a lot of raw, uncensored comics since the days of their Predator and Aliens series. As far as I know, they only edited one chapter out of Berserk because they thought it was boring, but not for "moral" reasons. If they take the series, it will be really good I'm certain

    As per contract, we'll be presenting Gantz as English versions of the Japanese tankoubon editions, 13cm x 18cm, approximately 200 pages per volume.


    We have yet to solidify the schedule and approve it with Shueisha, but we hope to publish the first volume in June. Possibly a month or so earlier, but not likely. I've already begun work on Gantz, and have the first volume translated ahead of time. I'm excited about the series myself.
