I was just teaseing you dragoon . LOL. Figured you would respond eventually. But yeah I really did find that Red Garden got much better reviews then Gantz, but I still agree with you that the people that had a problem with Gantz did not really look past the gore, blood, and sex. The reviews for Red Garden were almost always postive, but more conservative. The reviews for Gantz seemed to either be “it’s amazing!” or “It’s the worst thing ever made!”. But there seems to be a lot of bad reviews for that anime though, when compared to Red Garden. I don’t really see what your getting at there.
My only real beaf with Gantz is the paceing, the flashbacks used to eat up time (really how many times are we ganna see that same flashback?) and the ending (which is outright terrible). I thought the soundtrack was amazing, and the character designs were very original, and that the backgrounds were very fresh and different looking. Although the CGI background did look a little cheap and odd at times. I am very glad I saw that show, and must thank you for recommending it to me . And the dub was exellent! Now that right there is a dub!
And I bought one of the singles for Red Garden, so do I count? LoL. But I was watching it on TAN at the time, so I wasn’t really ganna rush out to buy the DVD’s, I was going to buy them slowly, over time. I do think part of the reason people didn’t buy the show early on was due to the fact that it’s a real niche show, and those who saw it, watched it for free on TAN and were ganna get the boxset down the road or something. And yes I must agree the fans of Red Garden are not really ecstatic about it. They like it, but they don’t love it. I am the oddball out, as I sing the praises of the show as often as I can.
