Chapter 1 - Back to the Future
In this series, Hiroya Oku talks about the movies that inspired him to create GANTZ.
Only the first chapter is in manga format, the other episodes are mostly text and one or two drawings.

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.
Haha Is good you post Gantz no Moto.
I sent it to you yesterday.
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.
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.
i cant download in that page . someone can upload it in mediafire????please
GAT at least say Thanks >_>
Wasn't Psyren also inspired by the same movie?
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.
MediaFire & MegaUpload
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.
Here's a trans dudes. A little rough, but oh well
to tell you the truth i would had never guess this was his inspiration
why most of the gantz girls have huge breasts
H guns effect
how the inside of gantz ball looks

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.
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.
