GANTZ Singapore Cosplay Party at Heeren

On collaboration with Encore Films, Otaku House is the event partner for the GANTZ Cosplay event at Heeren on 8th May 2011.

GANTZ is the most anticipated Japanese live-action blockbuster, after DEATH NOTE!

From the studio that brought the “Death Note” series, GANTZ is a new exciting action-packed movie project based on popular manga, with three of Japan’s hottest stars of the moment – Kenichi Matsuyama (“L” in Death Note), Kazunari Ninomiya (leading member of Japanese boyband ARASHI) and Yuriko Yoshitaka (Tokyo Dogs). This mega project that spanned approximately six months of shooting and close to a year in post-production will be released in two parts. GANTZ 1 opens on 12 May 2011 in Singapore.
