Gantz: 0

I’ll start by saying what I didn’t like about this movie, and that’s the distracting breast animations on the two main female characters. But other than that, I had a blast watching this. The animation is beyond slick, and it makes all of the action incredibly stylish to watch. Definitely some of the best CG animation I’ve seen. I also like that the entire movie feels so self-contained, that it all takes place on one of the Gantz “missions.” But I think my favorite thing about the movie are all of the alien designs — inspired by traditional Japanese yokai, they’re really a joy to watch on the screen. I’m not that familiar with the entire Gantz storyline — I’ve seen the live-action movies, which were fine — and this is making me want to get back to reading the manga (I’ve only read the first couple of volumes).
