    Re: The Origin of Gantz

    I think he also mentioned Time Murderer by Robert Sheckley as a key inspiration as well.

    That book was about where do people go when they die.

    I seriously doubt Tomb Raider inspired him to create Gantz.

    Sure, there was a character who looked like Lara Croft played by Angelina Jolie, but that's just one character who really wasn't around a lot of time.

    Rewatch the first tomb raider and you will think, holy shit Oku got this entire scene from that movie... Ok maybe not entirely but there is one fight scene in tomb raider that is extremely similar to the Buddha mission. Sort of how like call of duty 4 is almost like black hawk down.

    The final boss looked exactly like the final boss from the statue scene except a few differences, and he also put a tomb raider look alike in sort of as a tribute. Too many similarities. I would never say oku was unoriginal because he added enough to make it his own but there is definitely some outside influences. Like the dinosaur scene, he was definitely inspired by Jurassic park.

    Re: Gantz no Moto - New Hiroya Oku series

    the Buddha temple is base on sensoji temple in Tokyo,all those status in the mission are base on every single statue in the sensoji temple. the final boss is the goddess of mercy a statue in sensori temple and a Buddha god cant compare them to each other because of that, not to mention gantz statues came to life for a different reason and they all have bones and blood( and their base on the REAL statues in tokyo).


    just because the dinosaurs were alive dosnt mean it was inspire by jurassic park. the only thing they had alike is that the dinosaurs were alive, and they were brought to life in a completely different way.

    if he did get inspire by them he would had mention them on list above.
