Surprisingly for a story that's so grim and gruesome, ''{{Gantz}}'' has a few genuinely heartbreaking moments.

* A major moment of tears in the ''{{Gantz}}'' manga is [[spoiler: the death of Tae Kojima. She is the only character who REALLY contributed on the change of personality of Kei Kurono. She is revived later, but that's not the point.]]

* The deaths of [[spoiler:the little boy and his grandma during the Tanaka aliens mission]] really got to this troper. [[spoiler: They see the aliens coming for them while hiding in a garage, so grandma makes the boy leave, saying that she'll protect him and get him home safely. Moments later, the boy comes back to find grandma slumped on the ground with her eyes and ears bleeding from the aliens' attack. The boy goes to hug grandma one last time, disregarding the aliens in front of them. And as the aliens prepare to finish them both off, grandma hugs the boy one last time.]]

* Ch. 333. The nerdy little cowardly guy from the Osaka team, Virgin-Kun (a fan nickname, since his actual name is never given), the ''last'' person you'd expect to be a hero, volunteers to join the Tokyo team in response to Kei and Reika's broadcast (he's the next-to-last person to arrive). He breaks down crying when he sees Kato there. [[spoiler: Turns out he Manned Up '''hard''' after seeing Kato's example in Osaka, earned 100 points, and ... well, the ''last'' person to teleport in is Anzu.]] Then ''both'' he and Kato (and, probably, the reader) share a ManlyTears moment.

* What about when [[spoiler:after being saved by the old man, Inaba goes on to have his CrowningMomentOfAwesome, crying as he realized that the old man was the only one who cared...and then he gets stepped on by the MontyPythonsFlyingCircus foot]]?
* [[spoiler:Sakata's]] ObiWanMoment, which doubles as his CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* I can't believe no one has mentioned [[spoiler:Kato's]] death at the end of the third mission in the anime. Not only is he [[spoiler:never brought back]], but his little brother will never be able to know what happened to his brother that [[spoiler:MYSTERIOUSLY DISAPPEARED AFTER PROMISING TO ALWAYS BE THERE FOR HIM]]. That moment really got to me at least.

* In ch. 351, [[spoiler: Tae finally reuniting with Kei. The alien woman's reaction to this makes this moment all the more heartwarming and [[TearJerker tearjerking]] at the same time.]]
