Gantz Vol. 4: Terminal Dispatch

» written by Wai Yung (Wayne) Chim [Discuss]

Synopsis
As Kato struggles to maintain control, Kishimoto realizes that with her new body comes a new hope. Unfortunately, before she can act on those options, the second game begins! As a new group of players is initiated into the world of the sphere, the survivors of the first game are confronted with an entirely different breed of opponent… one that’s smarter, more aggressive and more organized… and that’s before the real game even starts! The series that shocked Japan continues in the fourth electrifying volume of GANTZ.

Review
Man, like Magic Johnson’s promo for TNT, I miss the dead bodies, and in these two episodes (seven and eight)… they do not help to satisfy that desire. We continue off discovering what Kishimoto will do now that she cannot go home, not to mention, we also find out her reason behind her attempt at suicide. Kato’s life is revealed a bit more and he sure does have it tough. An abusive aunt heh, that just makes you want to punch her in the face! Kato, of course, cannot do much about it as he is living dependently under his aunt’s roof. But what he could do is heheh, take the anger out on somebody else…

This volume is similar to volume three, where it is mostly story development, which is cool, because it is still early in the series. But I will not forgive this series if I have to go cold turkey any further! :). As this volume builds up for volume five, the players for the next game are beginning to gather, and, that means finally dead bodies will fly! Yeah baby!

The Breakdown
Gantz progress is slow, due to the fact that it is being release two episodes per volume. This discussion would not have been brought up if it was released differently. At any rate, Gantz is still entertaining and I will always pick to buy it, before buying food for myself :P.

 

» The Pros
Even without the killing, Gantz grabs a hold of my attention by featuring the scenes of Kishimoto... hehe yeah that is a pro for perverts. Anyways, Gantz's story development is rather slow, but you really cannot say it that way because there are only two episodes per volume. By doing that, the show slows down with the wait time of the next volume. Well, the good thing is that the release dates between volumes are close to each other :).

» The Cons
What is with these ugly biker dudes? They just disgust me with their looks and by the way they act. The punk high school kids are the same too :/.

From volume three to volume four, is story development. It is not a bad thing to be explaining and introducing various points to the viewer, but we can only handle so much before getting tired of it.

» Recommend
8.5
Gantz usually goes for $11.99 at BestBuy, so it really is not a chunk out of your pocket.
