I quite liked this

This worked remarkably well. It uses the superman foundation but takes it a whole new direction with tasteful suspense, some horror, some scifi and nice characters whilst still keeping it compact and intimate.

Not aged too well

Sure, there is some stuff to like, but most of the appeal starts to rest on being a 'cult classic ' rather than on actually being great. I suspect it's relevance at the time has since been far surpassed by Manga.

Unique and terrific war movie

Part of me wished the 'single shot' peculiarity wasn't part of the hype, because you start paying attention to it and get drawn out rather than into the story. But it still contributes massively to a unique vibe and flow of this terrific war movie.

Different and diverse

I needed about two episodes to get into it, but then I really was enjoying the very diverse adventures, the interesting and colorful characters, the exciting fantasy world and the way the various characters started to cross each others paths. Or was I just mesmerized by Jennifer?

Gantz

Anime series about people who get to hunt monsters (aliens?) after they have been killed in an accident

I gave up

I thought I'd give this a try since I quite liked the digital movie 'Gantz:O' that was based on this. I tried to persevere, but just could finish this due to it's slow nature and endless waves of atrociously bad and bizarre acting and dialogues, before and even during the monster fights.
