I reviewed the first edition of Gantz, and gave it four stars for the slowness in which the story comes out and the violence of the film. Now, with the start of the second season, I'm a true lover of this series. At the start of the second season, you know the characters and what to expect, and you've already seen some of the changes in them that has happened because of their horrible experience delivered to them by Gantz. Now, you get to watch the story unfold with the characters already used to Gantz. The story, while still slow, is more bearable because of the size of the DVD, and the animation gets better and better with the action. Highly recommended if you enjoyed the first season.
