Synopses & Reviews
Sometimes big things come in small packages. And our Gantz hero, Kei, might want to consider that in this volume of the frantic and weird, angsty and sexy manga by Oku Hiroya. Gantz's cross between the real world of teenage complications and the totally sci-fi concept of aliens occupying an unwitting Earth is a hit with a cross-section of comics and manga readers. Each volume brings new challenges and frustrations, and plenty of sex and violence. It's a tense adventure, where all bets are off and anyone can die at any given moment when hunting a strange and unpredictable array of alien combatants. Oku Hiroya's work is popular in both the manga and anime format, and continues its surge in Volume 9.
