I couldn’t actually find the Level E OP to embed here, but I did manage to find the full song used in that opening sequence, and it is kick ass; Cold Finger Girl as performed by Chiaki Kuriyama. If she looks familiar, it’s probably because she played killer girl Gogo Yubari in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, and real fans should also know her from Kinji Fukasaku’s Battle Royale. The final video of the set is a very rare interview with Hiroya Oku, the creator of Gantz, and Chiaki Kuriyama wearing her Fangirl hat, talking about Anime, Manga, and (not a surprise) Gantz. As far as I know this is the only interview with Hiroya Oku, or at least the only one with English subtitles I have found so far, and until this I didn’t know that Chiaki was an Otaku, either.
