Biomega Vol 6 (Kindle)
Ed two plots together Its not really that bad but I think I would have preferred either the initial generic engineering zombie sci fi plot or the books 4 5 6 sci I would have preferred either the initial generic engineering zombie sci fi plot or the books 4 5 6 sci fi plot or the books 4 5 6 sci with hints of Nausica plot but not both in the same series Interesting series not as good as Blame and rather confusing Still I enjoyed the fast paced style and this strange and ridiculous world After stumbling upon Nihei s Blame series and being in complete awe of his design and story it s surprising I didn t read his other works sooner
Better Late Than Never Though late than never though I m sure glad I did cause this series was exactly what I was wanting The mood Nihei creates in a lot of his work is completely uniue creating a depressing and bleak atmosphere that despite being would crushing is absolutely beautiful and heartfelt And although this series was a bit convoluted than Blame and Knights of Sidonia I still finished it with complete satisfaction And in the end that s what you want rightIf you like horror science fiction genre then definitely give this a read It s not for everyone but for those who like me enjoy a little different from the norm this is the series for you And if you haven t already check out Blame You won t regret it This manga is the usual Nihei stuff some Killy like badass character is on a mission and ills monsters along the way You can expect action violence blood decapitations etc The drawings are beautiful as usual The whole world seems to be set in the same as Blame but before Blame and Noise Nihei introduces interesting characters new monsters and a new storyline But and there is a big but the manga would have been better if it would have been a book or two longer The manga is good up until the fourth volume and then you have the feeling Nihei is on hyper speed and he goes so fast introducing a new world and new characters and reintroduces the old ones by the sixth book we re short of breath anf it ends so uickly we wonder if there is going to be volumes or a seuel but there won t be any Nihei should have slowed down and make the serie a bit longer so we can enjoy it better and that we are less confused Still it s a great read not as good as Blame but definitively better than Noise or Abbar. Ts of the Recreator are beginning to succumb to dronification a result of the N5S plague that wiped out the original Earth Only Zoichi and Fuyu can stop the nightmare from repeating itself but to do so they'll need to find Eon Green and the incredible secret she holds about the past that will shape the future The final confrontation is at hand and the prize for victory is the power to transform humanity and the world itself.

This spoiler free review is going to encapsulate the entire six volume seriesThe art is incredible in Volumes One through Four The artwork really makes you feel like you re speeding along with the characters at 120mph There s some pretty funky and gruesome stuff in these books For
some reason volumes five and six seemed toreason Volumes Five and Six seemed to phoned in a bit in comparison For the most part the story is pretty basic This was a good thing though Its strength was the high octane artwork It started getting a little wonky and convoluted by the last two volumes and a little wonky and convoluted by the last two volumes and much completely lost me I can t even say how many times I literally cringed while reading this series the story the art it s just horrifying the emotional ending was a surprise and may not actually be so much of one to some readers but it hit me when I realized whowhatwhen and it was incredibly satisfying What a mediocre and confusing way to end an amazing plot The timeline in this volume was completely scattered and made little to no sense Zoichi had been on the recreator for hundreds of years but Kozlov had only been there for twelve How does that work And the recreator had characteristics of a world thousands of years old but only formed after Earth had been demolished by the reverse morphic polymer Characters will show up out of no where with no explanation and then disappear with no explanation Names and aliases are uite confusing as well this one person is the same person as this other person from this amount of time ago The whole thing with Riruodo on Mars raises many uestions What happened to her What was she doing for so long there The ending resulted in forming uestions than answering the previous ones However I really liked the concept of the uestions than answering the previous ones However I really liked the concept of the and I wish the series had been clearer and thorough with the series of events After thinking it over I ve come to the conclusion that my thoughts on Volume 6 also sum up my feelings for the series in general Biomega is a visual feast but a very difficult story to follow Perhaps because I don t read Sci Fi or Horror manga I was really fascinated by Tsutomu Nihei s dark hideous characters and nightmare ish universe Yet I had an extremely difficult time following the cha.

In of events from the first volume to the last There was lots of shooting and space blobs and monsters growing out of matter or machines or both but what they were doing and why was often than not beyond me I m not sure if this doing and why was often than not beyond me I m not sure if this because I took long ish breaks from the series between volumes or because Nihei s pages were difficult to follow Probably it was a bit of both along with a lack of explanation within the story itself Biomega is short on words and on imagery The is that the imagery doesn t always do the job of explaining what is going on nor does it help that many of the characters look exactly the same Perhaps that is why the conclusion of Volume 6 and the series was so anti climatic for me I can t say that I understand exactly what happened though whatever it was it was breathtakingly drawnIf I went back and re read the whole series it would probably make sense Maybe someday I will MaybeUgh I can t decide what tense I want this review to be in Too tired and too disappointed with the end to do anything about it I ll fix it later Over and out Action packed but the story isn t particularly coherent I finished this story like I started it utterly confused and loving it DThe final volume s only real negative for me is that it was too short Not in that I just want of Biomega although I do want that as well but rather that it all moved at such a high pace that it felt like a few chapters were missingMany of the old plot threads and characters make a return in this volume but a few characters were nowhere to be seen since the spoiler happened in volume four even though we didn t see anything about them being dead I d love for Nihei to one day make a seuel to this just like I d love to see of his world from Blame but both seem unlikely to ever happen so we ll just have to do with whatever new things he brings us In the end I think what was good about this series was the artwork and what wasn t so good was the story I think a couple of times the plot rambled around a bit and then at other times it jumped decades If I were to be my most critical I d say it was almost as if the author didn t now how to finish the story when they started or that they jamm.
