Korono Kei is an arrogant high school freshman, whose thoughts are constantly occupied by that of a girl. One day, on his way home, Kei sees a guy fall off a train platform. He didn't care about this other person and, at first, just watched the scene in amusement. However, Kato Masaku, who was a classmate of Kei in his elementary school days, suddenly gets off the platform to help the man. Upon being asked for help, Kei reluctantly does so. However, while doing this, a train comes. Normally they would have been killed by the train, but they were transferred into a room of a condominium in the blink of an eye. There, they find a black sphere and people who are supposed to be dead, like Kei. They are unable to get out of the room, nor even touch the walls. What is the room? What is this ball?

In the middle of all this, a naked girl named Kishimoto Kei is transferred into the room. Then, from the sphere, a radio exercise song begins to play. It's lyrics:"Your old lives are gone and your new lives belong to me." It didn't explain anything other than that, but give them weapons and ordered them to hunt aliens.

They couldn't cry for help and, gradually, Kei and Kato realize that they are in a real battle and not a game or a TV-program. Regardless of their own wishes, they are involved in this mysterious fight against aliens.

What will happen to them? What is this mysterious sphere, "Gantz"?
Gantz has the keys to unlocking all mysteries...
