    In Gantz the revival is never explained or anything, as far as the reader can understand, you are never revived.

    I think same thing with Naoki Urasawa's Monster. People died all the time but it was still a powerful theme, throughout all 74 episodes.

    Urasawa has a indubitable skill to always provide a strong ending for each volume. Just the first volume ending makes you put such a strong voice in her doctor Tenma scream that leaves no doubt about how strong is the foundations of empathy with the character. And not to mention the tempo on the story, which I think is fucking amazing.

    And bacon, if you want that the reader cares about the death of a character, your most focus in create a empathy bridge with the character to the readers, makes them care about that character and makes them feel that they want to be like that character, or that they could be like him if a twist in their life let them. Make the character meaningful, create a empathy bridge and always make the reader believe in the character. If you do these, you will see that people will care, even if you revive him later.

    In Gantz, you don't revive. When you are transported into the room, gantz uses the teleportation tech to record your entire being as data, so when people are revived, the original copy isn't actually brought back, it's just restored from a "backup" copy made by Gantz, who had memories only until the point at which they were first "recorded".

    She's trying to be creative but it's just horrible writing, almost as a bad as Mikey Bay.

    Please read the OP. That should explain everything. Or better yet, read the thread. It's only 4 pages. It's not that large
