Well, GANTZ no Moto is a serialization written by Hiroya Oku in the Miracle Jump magazine and it's about the movies that inspired GANTZ.
As far as i know there are only RAWs of 2 chapters, the first being a manga style chapter and the other being just text with some pictures and i think this is the pattern that follows the serialization, some pictures and text of Oku talking about the films.
The chapter of GANTZ no Moto the manga speaks of might be about the finale but i doubt it's gonna be an epilogue since they don't say anything about it and something big like the epilogue of GANTZ would be definitely announced first to increase the profits of the magazine.
I'm not trying to confirm anything though, i'm just writing what i know.

I guess that's it. Party is over, kids. I can't say I had fun in the past year and half with Oku's writing of katastrophe, but god that chapter was lame.
I find this ending funnier than I thought I would. Because I feel we all kinda knew in the back of our minds this is how it would end.
I've never been too much into Gantz, I always just read it on a superficial level.
I know however that a lot people here were quite invested in this manga and I'm sorry for you. Because when your dad gives you an awesome playstation in the morning, let's you play with it all day but in the evening all of a sudden saws it half and takes a crap all over it right before your eyes, it kind of sucks.
gay......what a crap chapter....looks like they revived the dead guys from the new team too considering they were transferring dead bodies...with that they could of revive kei2 and reika then I would of been happy lol.
Even his artwork dropped off for this chapter, Oku heart flipped so sad.
Well guys I enjoyed it but the final arc will be my least favourite. I hope there will be any news of gantz and oku here in the future because now I will be lost even if he does a new series or extras for gantz.
Gantz was my first manga I Ever read now I read lots, so thank you gantz anime and that games /hentai forum page that had gantz as a thread and it linked me to places like here and to find the manga. Ahhhh Stoptomatos and onemanga /bow ....
Thanks to all those on these threads to especially the mods who have sticked with it for years.
I think I started reading the manga when the current chapter was when Kei died by the vampires end of phrase 1 and it was so enjoyable to read from the start all the way to chapter 237.
When I met you, I felt attracted to you. I tried to imagine how it would end, it would have a great story. So the day finally came. I do not know what to say. My heart sank and I wanted to scream, to God and the world:
"What the fuck is this?"
That was when I watched LOST. And now I feel the same way about Gantz. The end came, and I do not know what to say. Honestly, Oku hope someone clap for this chapter? I'm tempted to burn all the volumes I have, knowing how it will be the end. I do not know what to think. I followed Gantz for six years, telling my friends to be one of the best stories I've ever read. How will I face them and say I was wrong?
Pity the fool who read this chapter and say it was a worthy end of the story.
There was a rumor that Gantz might start up again after a lengthy hiatus, so perhaps Oku wants an opportunity to use these characters again at some point?

Hmmm not as spectacular as I expected. But it feels like a feelgood ending, one of those last pages with Kei and Katou in the arms of Tae and Katou's bro, felt really human, I think Oku was going for a more human ending as opposed to the gore and brutal out of this world developments recently.
Well, that's it, we got kind of trolled with a sloppy "I don't care about this series anymore, it's over now" kind of ending. I always liked this one a lot, it was my favorite for quite a long time, but I guess that's that.
It seems like lately mangaka have been really really good at hyping things up, but then can't fulfill their own lofty expectations, leading to us waiting a long time for an OK sort of product.
Hello everyone. I once came on this forum under the name Mr.Aaron. (I had a cupcake with an angry face for a username).
I haven't posted in maybe a couple of years, but I have been lurking every week since I stopped posting. I figured since Gantz was a series I followed for almost 7 years, I should post something.
Even though the story turned out to be very disappointing in the last few arcs, I'd be lying if I said that this story didn't have an impact on me in a huge way when I was in high school.
I haven't read the spanish version, but I did take a look at the raw. I'm curious to see what the dialogue between Katou and Kurono was. Was Kaze even in this chapter? And I assume Nishi is pretty much dead.
Anyways, it was always cool to see you guys discussing the chapters (even if I wasn't as much of a fan of the story as I'd like to be in the later chapters), and thanks to MH for helping me get access to this story.
I am referring to the comments on Amazon, sure, you can rant about anything on the internet but is it too mean to ask mangaka to end his/her manga right now? 51 out of 64 recommends this review. hahaha..
