This fifth volume of the `Gantz' manga is another interesting instalment of the series. The volume includes some good moments and it is interesting to see how differently Karono and Kato deal with the situation they are in. The end of the Tanaka Alien hunt is nice and the setup for the next hunt is interesting as well. The volume also includes the usual amount of gore and nudity with a little sex added in as well. There is also a little bonus material at the end of the volume in the form of some information on the author's first manga.
