This is the finale of the 2-part live-action film adaptation of Hiroya Oku’s popular manga about a mysterious sphere called GANTZ that grants the recently-deceased super powers and a second shot at life in exchange for a seemingly never-ending string of alien assassination missions.
The two main characters, Kurono (Kazunari Ninomiya) and Kato (Kenichi Matsuyama), were childhood friends who died in a train accident and were subsequently recruited by GANTZ to assassination various “seijin” (aliens). Kurono chooses to fight and do whatever it takes to survive, while Kato rejects violence. Trapped in an endless cycle of war, both men are eventually faced with an important choice…
Toho will be releasing GANTZ: Perfect in Japan on April 23, 2011.
