There they also met a few others like them who also died an unexpected death but now are here in this semi-alive state, trapped in the same apartment. A large black sphere shaped orb entity known only as "Gantz" greets them all before enlighten them about their current state. He affirms them yet they are dead but their life still belongs to him.

Gantz then offers them various custom combat suits as their outfits, super-human strength, stamina and other units along with weapons before he tasked them to their mission; to kill aliens around the world that threatens humanity that are targeted by Gantz, that will earn them points necessary to return to their normal life without the memory of serving Gantz ever, exclusive upgrades for extremely-powerful weapon or even revive a fallen teammate.

Embarking those deadly missions, some kills, some dies and some passes through series of emotional conflicts. Then there was a catastrophic alien invasion that threatens the human race and more mysteries emerges. Many goes in the line of war and dies again and again but this alien hunting game seems to go on forever.
