    Kei Kurono is a high school student who lives in a selfish world where people, including himself, doesn’t care about anyone else. One day when he sees a man fall off a subway platform, he decides to just stand and watch. However, when his former classmate, Masaru Kato, helps the man Kei reluctantly aids him. When the train comes, they are stuck and are both killed…. or are they? After being run over by the train, they are suddenly teleported to an enclosed high-rise apartment with others who just recently died. They can’t leave the room and now their lives are controlled by a mysterious black ball – GANTZ. They are forced to participate in a "game" of unparalleled danger and horror. Who will die and who will survive? How many games must they play? Their lives are no longer theirs to control! Gantz (ガンツ) is a manga series created by Hiroya Oku, and later was adopted into an anime. It began airing on Fuji TV on April 12, 2004, and was broken up into two parts. The first season, known as the “First Stage”, was heavily edited on Japanese TV, but the second season (“Second Stage”) remained uncut. The Gantz anime is often criticized for it’s ending and pacing problems. The anime was made while the manga was still in early production, and thus Gonzo had to go at a weird pace, including creating an ending unliked by the fans. The manga, which began publication in October of 2000, is still ongoing. Oku-sensei has broken it up into two parts, First Phase and Second Phase. First Phase - October 2000-July 2006 *The Onion Alien Arc *The Tanaka Alien Arc *The Buddhist Temple Alien Arc *The Shorty Alien Arc *The Kappe Alien Arc *The Ring Alien Arc *The Tae Kojima Alien Arc *The Oni Alien Arc Second Phase - November 2006-Presentmoreless

    (ended 1986)
    Inspector Gadget was a cartoon parody of the 1960's television spy parody, Get Smart. Don Adams played the leads in both shows. There are similarities between the two shows. Both agents only had lots of gadgets or devices that they never could use correctly. Both worked for a chief that they invariably infuriated. And of course, both Gadget and Smart were lovable idiots who always won in the end, usually by accident or by someone else's help. Created by DIC Entertainment, this show was voiced in Canada and Los Angeles, drawn in Korea, edited in Los Angeles and distributed by DIC International. First produced as a 1/2 hour pilot in 1983, it was picked up and produced until 1986 for TV. Years later, Inspector Gadget is seen in 55 countries in 24 languages. Spinoffs: Gadget Boy and Heather, Gadget Boy's Adventures in History, Inspector Gadget's Field Trip and Gadget and the Gadgetinis. A liveaction theatrical movie based on the cartoon was released in 1999, as well as a liveaction direct-to-video sequel in 2003.moreless

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven

    The WB (ended 1999)
    Exactly one year after his death, rock musician, Eric Draven, returns to earth in a symbolic and literal leap from the bridge that joins the Land of the Dead and the land of the living. Possessing the mystic powers of The Crow, he is neither living nor dead, searching for a way to right what has been wronged.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven continues the legacy of Eric Draven and expands on the mythology of the successful feature film franchise. Joined as soulmates, Draven and his girlfriend Shelly were inseparable — until they were brutally and senselessly murdered.

    Now, their souls cannot rest. Their romance endures through time and death, creating an incredible longing between the young lovers. Draven seeks redemption by helping others, fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves. Through each act of justice, he is taken one step closer to his own salvation.

    A foot soldier on the side of good, at Draven's core is a powerful force that transforms him into The Crow — his alter ego.

    Draven's return to Earth arouses both suspicion and curiosity from Daryl Albrecht, the police lieutenant who has never given up his crusade to solve the vicious crime that cost Eric and Shelly their lives.

    Eric also has other earthly allies. He and Shelly remain connected to Sarah, a 13-year-old kid who is streetwise beyond her years and who regarded the dead lovers as family. While her rebellious nature can be her worst enemy, she is the grounded voice of reality for Eric.

    Even a dead man needs to get a life. Although Eric Draven has been changed forever, he must exist, at least for now, in the world of the living.

    During the opening theme of the show, the voice-overs of Eric and Shelly say:

    SHELLY: People once believed that when someone dies, a Crow carries their soul to the Land of the Dead

    DRAVEN: But sometimes something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest

    SHELLY: Then sometimes, just sometimes, the Crow can bring the soul back to put things right

    DRAVEN: Things can never be right, my soul will never rest, until we are together again.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.moreless
