    Re: Gantz no Moto - New Hiroya Oku series

    Sorry Oku, I just don't see the influence of those works since they all had original plots and Gantz is, after all, just yet another "Every-Modern-Manga-Ever", which is to say:

    Normal Japanese is sucked into some sort of magical world which exists inside Tokyo BUT is conveniently invisible to normal people and inside which he/she is given technology/magic/powers by some organization in order to collect the McGuffin objects du jour while adhering to the inane rules of the world (the Japanese seem to be unable to picture a world without rules and structure).

    (I guess I'm being too harsh though)

    I'm still surprised he can draw realistic faces as shown in Gantz no Moto.

    Nice finds about the statue from Buddhist mission and Dinoalien hunt, guys.

    Now am I the odd one out in saying that I prefer that there isn't a random pinup girl between what are meant to be immersive chapters? lol

    Women with big tits?

    If your still blown away by seeing that, and actually want it around.

    Well, Ill ask you the same question in a few years after you've grown up a little more.

    I'd rather have an extra page of content, than big boobs.

    Re: Gantz no Moto - New Hiroya Oku series

    ^

    If you're not going to get an extra page of content anyway (which you wouldn't), why would it hurt?

    I think it's a cool addition even if I'm only going to see it for half a second before I move on. I would rather see it on covers or whatever than in the actual story. There's nothing wrong with it being on the cover because it's all meaningless. It's amusing to watch Oku sexualise women every chance he gets. It's so over the top.

    Re: Gantz no Moto - New Hiroya Oku series

    It's way cooler when Oku shows hardsuits in color than having girls with big boobs. I guess he was not in the mood back in the early days (before the Osaka mission showed that suit can be further improved) of making Gantz and resorted to what make something that's easy for him to make. I don't know where exactly I've read it, but I think it was in a Gantz chapter that he told a story about how the people noticed the breast-movement in his drawing more than the actual story (I think it was Hen, his first manga).

    ^ Don't worry, you don't missed much. The raw is 3 page "long", two pages with pictures about Robocop, on the third page some text.

    ^ Thanks! Right, I thought I was going to see something as good as chapter 1. At least, my curiosity about it won't bug me.
