Wasn't that that weird Japanese movie where school kids have to kill each other or something?

I've heard the novel is much better than the movie (not saying the movie was bad). Although the novel goes further into the relationships the students had with each other prior to the incident.

I actually think the movie was a better adation than the shitty manga. I mean, yea, the manga followed the storyline better, but all the melodrama is just ridicoulus, and the art, aside from being just goddam ugly, makes all the characters look too pretty and "perfect", where in the book they're all described as ordinary-looking people. The movie followed that well.

Yep; that's it. It's overly violent but brilliantly executed (pardon the pun) for perfect effect.

absolutely loved this movie, and the book is better, but overall, it's a reasonably close adaptation (the book is also something like 600 pages, so naturally some things didn't make the cut).

i've heard nothing but bad things about the sequel, and like to preted that it doesn't exist.

I like the movie... I know there's a manga for it, but I'm weary of it.

It's pretty violent and sexually charged

I like it, but I'm mentally defective

definately read the novel, very good and can be ordered from any fine lcs. :D
i like the manga, but i like manga in general, so the art style doensn't bother me as much as it would people who aren't fans of manga.

not Kawada :-x :-x :-x :-x he just looked gay in the movie

the other yes, but that's a typical modern japanese thing, I miss the 80's manga style :(

but that bitch, who raped the guy while killing him is so so :shifty:

The GANTZ author uses the same style, but does it much better, IMO.

the manga is uber violent. Moreso than the movie itself (though i coudn't say more than the book)

If your a fan of exploded heads in manga and rape and prostitiution then you'd like the manga ...otherwise steer clear.

My local Barnes and noble dosn't even shelf the book anymore because it is "too violent" i only got the first 6 or 7 because of that :(
