College student Kei Kurono (Kazunari Ninomiya) notices former childhood friend Masaru Kato (Kenichi Matsuyama) helping a drunk man who fell from a subway platform. Kei Kurono then jumps down to help his childhood friend. A few moments later, the subway train rapidly approaches and both men look on helplessly on as their life is about to end. The next moment, Kei Kurono and Masaru Kato find themselves in a strange apartment with a mysterious giant black sphere and others who have recently died. The massive black sphere in the center of the living room is "GANTZ". GANTZ then assigns the people gathered in the room on missions to exterminate aliens.

If they fail, they can perish forever ... Edit Translation

Forget what you know about old manga's/anime's being made into movies. We all know that nothing is quite as good, but this movie breaks the status quo. This movie is quickly paced, an 'easy watch' so to say, has sort of a "dark humor" vibe to it, but is definitely brain food. Leaves you questioning most of the time, and when you think you've got it figured out... I'll leave it to you. Another Gantz sums the end up better for viewers, but leaves out some of the most crucial parts of the story line. I suggest you watch this version of Gantz, then just watch the last 11 minutes of Another Gantz. Besides, Anything with Kazunari Ninomiya is worth your while.

I also have never read the manga but let me say, without 10 minutes, I could not stop watching. The story was riveting. Beware, it can get a little gruesome at times. But I thouroughly enjoyed it. Ninomiya Kazunari, I had seen before in Ryusei no Kizuna before. Matsuyama Kenichi was in Norwegian Wood. So I was familiar with the lead males. The story does go quickly and a lot of details are shown so don't turn away for a minute. Some things are not explained but I guess that would be the disadvantage of not reading the manga. An interesting story for any Sci-Fi fan.
