GANTZ:0

GANTZ:O

At last, we can take a decent peek into the upcoming full 3d CG movie, GANTZ:O as a ‘survival teaser’ has started to stream on the movie’s official website on Wednesday. The movie is based on Hiroya Oku’s manga, a manga that already inspired an anime series and two live-action movies. The video trailer features the movie’s theme song ‘Ningen Video’ (Human Video) by the dresscodes. The cast for the movie includes Daisuke Ono, M.A.O, Tomohiro Kaku, Saori Hayami, Shuuichi Ikeda, Masane Tsukayama, Masaya Onosaka, Kenjiro Tsuda, Teruaki Ogawa and Yuuki Kaji.

The manga follows Kei, a young man who is reanimated after dying in a horrible subway accident (He and his best friend tried to save the life of a man who fell onto the tracks and in turn were hit and killed by a subway train). Now Kei and others who were also resurrected must go on violent and endless missions, which are forced upon them by an unseen force. They might have a chance to get their lives back if they survive the missions and accumulate enough points but surviving a mission is almost impossible most of the time. The GANTZ:O movie deals with the Osaka arc in which the Tokyo, as well as Osaka teams, take on their hardest challenge yet.

The staff behind this gore fest includes none other than Keiichi Satou as the chief director who worked on Tiger & Bunny, with Yasushi Kawamura, the Appleseed: Ex Machina CGI director in the director’s seat. Screenplay writer Tsutomu Kuroiwa (One Piece Gold Film) is writing the screenplay and Yoshiro Ike (Tiger & Bunny) is composing the movie’s music. The movie will open on October 14th.

Volcanion can’t get away, and Ash has dragged along as it continues on its mission. They arrive in a city of cogs and gears, where a corrupt minister has stolen the ultimate invention: the Artificial Pokémon Magearna, created 500 years ago. The minister plans to use Magearna’s mysterious power to take control of the mechanical kingdom. Can Ash and Volcanion work together to rescue Magearna? One of the greatest battles in Pokémon history is about to unfold!”
