Cool premise and beautiful artwork

"Gantz" starte out as 2 high school students in Tokyo were killed in a train accident, and they were brought back to life by a mysterious black sphere and forced to fight aliens with other recently "dead" people, and as they fight, they realized that if they can kill enough aliens, they can earn their freedom (or keep fighting but with upgraded weapons/armors if they prefer).  The story may sound far-fetched and doens't make much sense, but once you start reading it, you'll be hooked.

The artwork for the manga is top notch, all the characters are beautfully drawn, and all the aliens are fantastically designed, so even though the story takes you battles to battles, you'll never get tired of it, since the aliens are all so different (You have dinasaur-like aliens in one and hindu god(dess) like aliens in another).

This manga is also mature rated, so there are plenty of (gratuitous) sex and violence, so keep this away from kiddies!!

Nice. I saw the first few episodes but I got diverted to see other anime. I will definitely re-visit this series.
