This review will serve two purposes. It'll summarize what's on the last disc of the series, but more importantly it'll provide a critique of the Gantz anime series as a whole.

What is Gantz? This mysterious black ball orders people to accomplish its missions, provides crucial equipment to do so, and seems able to see and hear everything. The series approach Gantz from the viewpoint of the people caught in Gantz' games, and the viewers never get a definitive answer on this question.

However, the purpose behind this anime series seems obvious---to express the views of the author, Hiroya Oku, on the state of modern Japanese society. Each "player" in the games represent a specific archetype in Japanese society. For example, Kei Kurono is the selfish but talented teenager who wastes his time fantasizing and reading about sex, rather than make productive use of his talents. Childhood friend Kato Masaru is the conscience of society, sympathetic and perceptive, but ultimately powerless to do anything more than to watch. Kei Kishimoto is a passive but suicidal teenager who fails to connect with society in a meaningful way. The author's portrayal of his society is somber and less than flattering. A fascinating aspect of Gantz is how the characters voice what they're thinking inside their heads, offering an unfiltered peek at their views and prejudices.

Gantz seems to enjoy pushing the envelope with the brutality, violence, and gore. The scenes will shock you, disgust you, and titillate you all at once. From one game to the next, the only real suspense is how the players will die. For fans of the "blood and gore" or horror genre, Gantz will more than satisfy your appetite.

Volume 10 wraps up the last arc, albeit in a less than satisfactory manner.

In this, the final volume of the blood-drenched, bare-chested series known as GANTZ, we are finally given all the answers we've been waiting for since the very beginning. I can let my nails grow out now that I'm not biting them anymore. My heart can return to its normal pattern since there are no more cliff-hangers. I can return to a normal life without GANTZ... or so I thought.

(Potential Spoiler) Firstly, at the end of volume nine we learned the Kurono is now the target of Gantz's wicked game, and working for Gantz are two psychopaths seen earlier in the series murdering a bum. In this volume, Kurono's fight for survival against the game continues, and this time he's the alien. Unlike in past games, the weapons in this have no delay. When the trigger is pulled, the explosions happen. It makes Kurono's chance at escaping the savages hunting him all the more difficult. Yet he's able to find allies in this game, and a new love interest, and when that happens all his past experiences come together to help him. Memories of friends spur him on, and the morals they brought to the game begin to sink into Kurono. He no longer fights to save himself, he fights for the other players as well, even when they're trying to kill him. Yet opposing him on completely opposite sides is a psychopath bent on killing anything and everything in his path.

GANTZ, overall, was an excellent series, and arguably the darkest I've ever seen. Death here is so common that sometimes I think a coffin would have been perfect to hold the DVD collection. Twists and turns dominate every episode, leaving you often breathless, but even more often speechless.

While I agree with everyone else that Gantz is indeed one of the finer animes of the current era, and I have said so in previous reviews myself, I was sorely disappointed with the ending of the series. What made it so unfortunate in the end was the simple fact that it was such a typical anime ending - vague, rather anticlimatic, and even somewhat predictable despite the unconventional nature of the rest of the series. So it pains me to lower my score the way I have, but there is a lot to be said for having a satisfying end to the whole thing.

However, seeing the whole thing play out was still a nail-biting blast. I just wish that there was enough time to develop some sort of attachment to any of the final four episodes' characters the way the previous episodes had developed... even the dog had a sort of an emotional fit with the rest of the characters! It just kind of felt like by the end there was a lot of effort being put into wrapping the whole thing up very quickly.

Still, a huge fan of the series.

I hate to give Gantz so few stars; the first 9 discs were terrific. I personally didn't like the last disc because so many parts were either left unexplained or remained ambiguous. When the "kid" finds the guns in the locker and says: "huh...really...Hey he said we could use these." I assume "he" is Gantz, but does that mean they have a physchic connection or something?

If they plan to release a 3rd Season, then the ending is ok. But if that is how the series ends, then that was just lame.

I got the disc hoping to finally understand everthing in the previous discs that were left unexplained, but boy was I disapointed.
