    Re: The Origin of Gantz

    Haha, good to know Oku got the idea from Back to the Future, well don't get me wrong Gantz is far from being the same as the movie but maybe the whole futuristic touch he got from the movie, and the science factor that is present in Gantz, anyway thanks GAT for the download link.

    wow he must have mixed a bunch of ideas since the original development of gantz. I see like no traces of Back to the Future in Oku's work. I mean sure you have Kei who like Marty is thrown into an out this world adventure.

    Re: The Origin of Gantz

    Depends if minus is to be taken as cannon or not. Although the Specimen Alien was more like a terminator going back in time (maybe) to kill kei.

    This might be on topic as it's to do with his influence but has anyone read any of his other works. I read most of HEN (stopped reading when it got too wierd, some of it was cool) and I tried reading that un popular one about gaming which got dropped I think.

    Lightbulb Re: The Origin of Gantz

    Wasn't Psyren also inspired by the same movie?
    Quote Quote:
    His {IWASHIRO Toshiaki's} inspiration for his "Psyren" manga came from a movie called, "Back to the Future". He stated he loved and watched it various times since his childhood.
    Source; http://www.mangaupdates.com/authors.html?id=752

    What I'm trying to put into assumption is a "fact" that may have given reason as to why Gantz & Psyren had some resembling qualities. Of course, these two series has totally different themes and ratings, but maybe it was inevitable for people to actually compare the two comics.

    Dude, the reason i didn't post the link to the file of Raw Bunko (the source of the raw) is because i've been in the hospital and i've been discharged yesterday.

    I'm not trying to steal any credits or whatever, i just post the links i found and the first thing i did when i turned on my computed was to check that page to find raw's i haven't seen yet.

    But if you want thanks for the reminding me that there was a raw there, well thanks.

    Re: The Origin of Gantz

    Yeah I don't remember any reference to Back to the Future. However I do see the influence from the porno haha.

    He seem confuse on what the movie was about at first, psssh the name of the movie give the plot away.

    I hope he continues this. As an aspiring comic artist it'd be interesting to see what his other influences were.

    Re: The Origin of Gantz

    He mentions Back to the Future and other films as influences in the Gantz series. Maybe its just in the volume collection. See Volume 6, in the back, he mentions Die Hard is his favorite movie, and Back to the Future his second, and talks about them and other films he likes.
    Please contribute to the Gantz wiki, where every bit of information, no matter how insignificant, is recorded.
