the first few anime episodes do follow the manga pretty closely. i heard that the rest of them are crap. as of 03/09/06, there are 227 chapters out. for the last few chapters, the mangaka has had a nasty little habit of taking a week off. so recently there's only been 2 chapters each month, as opposed to his old, weekly release schedule.

i have read mang up to 224, if i remember right..this manga is surely full of blood, and sometimes some erotic parts in it..i also know some translators who are translating unwillingly because of blood-secenes but as general i like that manga, although there are better mangas from gantz, i believe it worths to take a look
I've read the first volume of Gantz, it's pretty different from what I'm used to - pretty sci fi. It's got nice art and I'm curious enough to move on, though I must say I'm glad Kato is there, Kei's a jerk so far. ( I know he'll probably get better as the story goes on but he's a major jerk at this point. )
The nudity is a bit too much in some parts though - I don't have a problem with nudity if it fits in with the story, but here it's pretty obvious it's just for eye candy.
Sorry to say it but the anime made their own ending and do not follow the manga. The first season is pretty accurate but the second season is total nonsens and the ending in the anime is pitiful compared to the work made by the mangaka. There is also a huge diffrence between the dvd and the first tv sent version. I think in the first season alone they added enough material to the dvds to constitute 2 whole episodes so make sure you catch the dvd version.
However my suggestion would be to reread the whole manga to get accurate information if you find the anime intresting.
Rumours has it that the reason he has been so slow in releasing lately is because his assistant quit and he his currently looking for a new one... later on he will pick up his pace to weekly releases again.
Wow I was never expecting this in the begining but I finished all the chapters in a dash(cause I dont like sci fi stories very much).character development of kei kurano is very deep and impressive.I cant stop from wondering what will happen next.first time a book or a manga or anything effected my daily life this much.I feel that I wont be the same person I used to be after reading this.
if you can see through the real story , from all that nudity,gore,blood etc. I beileve that everybody can like this as much as I liked.
Things not going you way?You pick up your toys and go home.That is it?
Gantz started out great, but I have to agree with the crew at Omanga: the serie turned out in a shitty way. I'm surprised I read to chapter 200 before I quit. Besides, Gantz is more shounen than Seinen, if anything.
Yea the series is great, I just think they do a bit much with the sex scenes(especially Kei's girlfriend she looks so young). I really was surprised, at first it was just a moderatly entertaining but I got hooked.
