  • [R1 DVD] ADV Gantz Release vs. FUNi Gantz Release - Bonus Extras?

    Widgets Magazine
    I remember that the original ADV release of Gantz had a wide range of bonus materials across the DVDs. I was wondering if all of the bonus content was on the FUNi Anime Classics release? I searched online and the few review of FUNi release only indicate a few items (though the reviews could be incomplete).

    Thanks for any assistance.

      Wow. Those episode counts seem unreal - I have the original release, where it was two episodes a dvd. At least with the ADV re-release, you can see the whole "Green Onion Alien" incident without have to buy two dvds (or having to swap disks).

        The discs were redone with the previous release in 2007 (Perfect Score Collection; the one with the sphere packaging). The season sets before the Perfect Score Collection were the same (2 thinpak collections) as the ones from the singles.

          I thought Funimation would be able to get all the extras. I'm hugging my ADV season sets for Gantz.

            They may have gotten them, but just not opted to include all of them for space reasons combined with the thought that folks wouldn't miss them if they weren't there.

              Well i would surly miss such extras and would look for the ADV set on ebay or so instead of the Funi ones. Only if the show was actually any good as that it didn't appeal to me much and i didn't like how it ended
