Gantz – Check out the live action version of the Japanese manga
Posted by LiveFor on February 10, 2010
Gantz is a very violent and sometimes saucy manga and anime.
Above we see Natsuna Watanabe as Kei Kishimoto standing in front of the sphere known as Gantz. Natsuna certainly fills the black suit extremely well.
This from wiki should bring you up to speed:
A pair of high school students, Kei Kurono and Masaru Kato, are run over by a subway train in an attempt to save the life of a homeless drunk who had fallen onto the tracks. Following their deaths, Kurono and Kato find themselves transported to the interior of an unfurnished Tokyo apartment. The pair soon realize others are present and find that they are not able to leave the apartment. At one end of the room there is a featureless black sphere known as “Gantz”.
After some time in the room, the Gantz sphere opens up, revealing a bald naked man with a breathing mask and wires attached to his head, and three racks protruding from it, that offer various items for them to use. These include the custom fitting black suits Gantz makes for each of them, giving them super-human abilities, a controller which acts as a radar and stealth unit, and three types of guns.
When the Gantz sphere opens, green text appears on its surface, informing those present that their “lives have ended and now belong” to him. A picture and brief information is shown of some of the Gantz Targets, Gantz ordering them to go and kill them. All but one target shown thus far, have been aliens living on Earth, which take on a wide variety of forms. After a period of time which varies between missions, everyone except Gantz are transported to the location of the mission.
AnimeVice found the magazine scans and the film will debut in Japan in 2011.
