    @Revilenigma: If she's Tae, I'll read all the Tae parts again and probably fell for her. She would make a great Tae-chan.

    @Pantsutastic: I'm crossing my fingers for Naka Riisa as Reika. One more superb casting if the manga gods grant me my wish. She's gorgeous. Quirky Yuriko-chan can pull off Sadako too but I doubt Sadako will be in the movie.

    This was taken in 2009 and the kid is 26. You can kind of imagine him greeting Reika with this picture.

    More news rumors on the cast. Yoshitaka Yuriko is in but I don't know who she's playing.
    Here some pictures of her:

    I hope they get some busty chicks like Hitomi Tanaka to play the role of Rieka, Kishimoto, and Sei Sakura Oka.



    Mostly I was hoping that the Gantz movie would have:

    -Good actors
    -Huge boobed porn stars to play their respectful roles (and duties LOL)
    -Great Effects like in "The Matrix" and "Transformers"
    -Gore
    -Some of the most badass parts from the manga.

    But I figured it'd be a little too good to be true.
    They'd probably tone it down...a lot.

    As long as they successfully deliver a whole anime I'll be satisfied.

    Is it bad that I know who that is?

    I don't want gravure models in the gantz film or even overblown idols. Gantz would gain a larger audience yes, but it would be just like Twilight. Is that what everybody wants?

    i don't figure how it would necessarily be just like Twilight,
    but they might be able to make the model thing work without softening the story.
    I mostly just see the budget and general audience stopping that.

    I find it hard to take films that cast models who are very low on talent seriously at all. It just seems whorish.

    I see.
    Well hopefully they'll be able to get both looks and talent.

    I really hope so... but casting directors do hold beauty in higher regard than talent in most cases.

    Gantz core story is way too heavy to become as fluffy as Twilight but I do think it'll be too campy if the females were acted by gravure models. They need to balance out the acting talents of both leading men with legit actresses. So far the casts (and the rumored Tae-chan) are strong actors.

    We just have to cross our fingers they will have amazing effects and GORE.
    I just don't have a clue how they are going to fit all my favorite fighting scenes in only 2 movies. It seems like there'll be the Osaka arc from the filming schedule leaked. I hated the Osaka arc : The olden Japanese ghosts were cool though.

    LOL It's funny,
    Oku Hiroya seems to adore women with large breasts;
    I'd expect him to be happy as hell to see some busty porn chicks successfully acting out his manga!
    You think he'd try to make it happen more than any of us.

    Man...I'd sure love to meet him,
    we'd have some interesting conversations.

    I think Oku would want people who can act and give the movie a good rep to have person get interested in reading the manga who have not.
    The thing is they need talent more that looks because gantz the manga, they all act realistic so why too in the movie.

    Re: Gantz Live Action Films Confirmed for 2011

    The 20th century boys movie turned out to boost sales for the manga, even after the serialization had finished. I can imagine that it would do at least that for Oku. It might even make it more mainstream.

    Oh my god. Please tell me that picture is shopped... The busty girl one.
    I'd rather see a realistic looking girl, but I realize that this is Gantz.

    Yeah I think so too,
    but on the other hand I bet he'd try to see what those busty girls can do lol.
    I'd love to see them successfully deliver everything they could from the manga into live action. (more into anime than anything although)
