The other thing is, in the previous manga I mentioned there's a lot more attention paid to the characters, we get to see how people respond to their situation, and whether they develop into heroes or crack. The characters also last much longer so you get attached to them before they get offed. The cast just switches way too quickly in this manga so you don't really get attached, and the main character has PLOT armor too so you know he's not going to bite it.
I think that those two manga you mention kinda suck at playing according to the rules. They're more like red-blue killing (team battle) and another one is just a battle royal (the weak ones wouldn't survive). And Gantz is simply invalid for trying to overcome god... Battle Royal is quite good that they kinda succeed, against authority.

WHat I mean to say is that your opion lost its credit the moment you mention Gantz.
