Gantz manga is at it’s end

The Gantz manga is at it’s end. In the author’s notes for the 6th/7th issue of Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine, Hiroya Oku announced that he wants to draw the ending for the Gantz manga in 2012.

The manga follows a young Tokyo man, Kei who is brought back to life after a deadly subway accident, along with a group of random individuals. Kei and the other resurrected people go on a violent, seemingly endless missions at the behest of an unseen host, fighting aliens, and whatever else he and his team are commanded to go up against.

Back in 2000, the debut Gantz manga was released in an issue of Young Jump, and the 33rd manga volume will ship in Japan next month. The manga also inspired a television anime series animated by Gonzo as well as two live-action movies. In January, North America received the 20th English volume of the manga. The magazine (Young Jump) issue’s official release date is set for January 4.

I'm just a typical university student who loves his games and anime. During the day I study engineering, though at night I play until my fingers bleed. My favorite gaming series of all time is the Final Fantasy collection, and favorite anime is Neon Genesis Evangelion. Not only am I a RPG fanatic, but I am also a self proclaimed 'pro' Call Of Duty player, and hold the high scores in my local arcade for Time Crisis, a childhood favorite. I work part time at a warehouse, and also tutor at my University to help struggling students. Despite my kind nature, find me online and I will show no mercy. Happy gaming.
