    Some comics are great because they do one thing extremely well. You're not going to read Biomega for the ideas (zombies), or the dialogue (sparse), or the characterisation (sparser), or the plot (sparsest). You might read it for the action - high-speed, sometimes thrilling, sometimes murky and chaotic. And you might read it if you're a fan of bikes, bears and ballistics. But mostly you should read Biomega, as with any Tsutomu Nihei manga, for the architecture. Nihei is the master of space, scale, and conveying enormity within the confines of the small comics page. His cyclopean buildings and colossal structures are less extreme (and less the main character) than in his earlier Blame! but there are still double-page spreads in Biomega that are beautifully dizzying and alienating, like a cyberpunk Gormenghast. Sometimes they interlace with the action, but they don't always need to. Vertiginous, and unlike anything else I've read.

    Short on story, long on atmosphere, art and sheer cyberpunk kickassery, this volume is off to a great start. Kudos to Tsutomu Nihei for execution! I don't know what it means but I can practically hear every sound effect of this manga.Not to mention this volume ends with our motorcycle Kaneda-styled hero *spoilers* shooting down freaking missiles!!*spoilers*My teenaged self thanks you, Biomega.

    Reason for Reading: Apocalypse? Virus? Zombies? How could I *not* want to read it?Comments: First off this book is a little larger in length and width than the usual manga which really enhances the superb artwork. Done in very detailed black ink the artwork tells the story for much of the book. There are a lot of wordless panels, especially in the first half where words are very seldom used and only sparsely when needed. There are many scenes which look down upon a city or place and these are truly stunning, some of the best artwork I've seen in a manga. There is a lot of violence but it's all of the kind you'd expect to see when zombies are being shot at and blown to pieces plus a small bit of language, thus the manga has an "M" rating.The story in this first volume is brief. The outline of what is going on and who our main characters are is introduced and one gets a bit of a feel for them. By the end of the book slight revelations have been made and we know the end of the world is imminent. There is one character whom not much information has been given and I found, shall we say, quite interesting, by the name of Kozlov who is a large talking grizzly bear who seems to be trying to protect Eon Green and I find myself most compelled by him at the moment.I definitely have a sense of the story here but I'm not big on wordless graphics, even though this does contain enough bubbles to tell some story. I personally do need more. At this point, I'm going to wait for Volume 2 before deciding whether this is a series I want to follow. If you like Apocalyptic stories, lots of zombie and motorcycle action with a grizzly bear thrown in for good measure you may want to give this one a try.

    Beksinski meets Giger meets Cronenberg. High tech dystopian body horror, on deserted overpasses and zombie riddled ghost towns. Many cartridges of black ink gave their life to bring us this manga, and while I really appreciate that, I'm not quite sure if this is one for me.On one hand, there's a scene where an artificial human rides his oversized, pitch-black motorcycle on a rooftop with a talking bear on the backseat, while the building behind them goes up in flames. That was pretty awesome.no lieOn the other hand, I needed more dialogue, and more of a story. Right now I know that there is an infection that zombifies you, and humanity is on its last legs. There is also a crazy cult that fully embraces the zombie inside you and wants everyone to go undead, pretty please. There's a special snowflake that got infected and didn't go the Romero way, but instead got gifted with (among others) the power of regenerating her limbs. She's also pretty chummy with the bear. And in between all that ^ there's high-speed motorcycle chasing and totally rad killshots by our protagonist, who reminds me of a slighter more badass Ichise from Texhnolyze. There's also me going "Why the fuck is no one asking the bear why it can speak?"The art is A++, and I'm kind of curious as to what's going to happen to bear-bro, but not gotta-buy-it-asap-curious, more a maybe-I-can-borrow-it-from-a-friend-someday-curious. This one is a meh.

    6/6 Historia completa.Hay elementos comunes con Blame!, y en cierta parte de la historia podría incluso haberse convertido en la precuela (muy en el pasado) de Blame! Acaba tomando otro camino.No me gusta el apelativo de 'distopía de zombies' para este manga, aunque quizá sea por el prejuicio hacia el género (o no) de estúpido en general. Ciertamente hay los equivalentes a zombies, pero la historia no toma el camino de una difícil supervivencia entre miles y miles de zombies ya que esto no tendría sentido frente a la relevancia y las capacidades del personaje central del manga.Igualmente que en Blame! hay elementos de ciberpunk como las IA, los humanos sintéticos, ciencia muy avanzada que permite grandes modificaciones biológicas, etc. Encaja perfectamente en el género distópico. En cuanto a escenarios, los que conozcan Blame! encontrarán también grandes escenarios arquitectónicos, aunque de distinta forma. En ciertas partes también grandes estructuras orgánicas que me recordaron a Nausicaä. Aunque yo preferí los de Blame! (Y seguramente la obra en general también)Hay muchos más diálogos, y no hay ningún problema en un manga largo que se hace esperar en cuanto a la trama; y Blame! lo hace bien. Aquí son 6 tomos frente a 10 de la otra obra. La trama se desarrolla más rápido necesariamente, porque también deben suceder muchas cosas. De hecho podría haberse extendido el manga en la parte final o, lo que habría sido alucinante para mí, una posible unión de Biomega y Blame! que necesitaría de muchos cambios en la historia claro.Y la historia, pues creo que podría mejorarse también. Hay de nuevo algunos saltos temporales, no demasiados, y un poco de dejar al entendimiento del lector. Con Blame! disfruté más con la relectura, sobre todo los tomos finales y en general al reconstruir la historia completa en mi mente. Aquí creo que puede pasar un poco lo mismo sobre ciertas cosas que se dejan a la interpretación.En definitiva es un buen manga para mi gusto en cuanto a ambiciones de la historia, estética y personajes. Algo centrada en el avance de la historia y la acción, cuando podría también haberse tomado sus momentos de calma para mostrar lo que le está sucediendo al mundo y a los personajes más en detalle.

    I won't pretend I'm any sort of manga expert because I'm not, so I'm just going to offer my very amateur opinions on the storyline and the artwork. Plot: Most of the human population have been turned into zombies thanks to the wonderful N5S virus. The Public Health Service sends Compulsory Execution Units (CEU) into infected areas to kill off said zombies, which are referred to as "drones". These drones look like your typical zombies, but with elongated limbs and torsoes - no word on if they eat brains though. The protagonist is some "synthetic human" dude (you can tell I've been paying attention!) on a motorbike, who completes missions in infected areas under the guidance of a little hologram lady in his bike computer, for a company called Toha Industries - rival of the Public Health Service and CEU. As with most zombie-virus-apocalyptic texts, there are a select few humans that are immune to the virus. In the Biomega world they're called Accommodators, and are essentially infected with the N5S virus but retain their human appearance. It seems like motorbike dude just goes into infected areas to do the job of the CEU, but receives orders to recover a young Accommodator girl called Eon Green. It turns out the Public Health Service is out to capture these so-called Accommodators and experiment on them, in hopes of wiping out the drones and starting over with humanity. Or something like that. As far as the storyline goes, Biomega hits all the right spots: apocalyptic storyline, zombies, viruses, synthetic humans/robots, shadow organisation and a precious few humans that are immune to said zombie virus. It's by no means an original premise, but I love me some dystopian/apocalyptic fiction and am likely to keep reading it as long as people write it. There were a few original things I really liked about the story though. For one, there was a talking bear! It was completely random and incongruent with the story, but it added a bit of LOLWAT to an otherwise srs bsns text. I also found the drones really creepy and fascinating, wondering what it is about the virus that causes their limbs to stretch and appearance to change. And the Accommodators are damn creepy! I'm guessing they're intended to look creepy, because the motorbike dude doesn't look quite as soulless. I was left wondering if they look like that because they're actually infected with the virus, rather than being totally immune to it (a part of the mythology that I really enjoyed!) I also find the Compulsory Execution Unit ~creatures to be equally creepy and fascinating. I have to admit I'm a bit confused about the main antagonist CEU guy, but I love the murderous butcher garb!You can probably tell I don't have any problems with the storyline itself, but I actually found Biomega #1 to be strangely lacking in story and dialogue. Again, I'm no manga expert so I'm unsure about what is "normal" when it comes to manga and graphic novels, but this text felt like it was 90% dude-riding-his-motorbike and 10% story and dialogue. I feel like I could rip out at least 20 pages of this text without affecting any of the story. I would've preferred a text with fewer pages and a heavier concentration of story, rather than a big long manga with little story and a million useless panels. I didn't purchase this manga (I borrowed it off a friend) but I'd feel a little ripped off if I had. I also have a little problem with the artwork - sometimes I just didn't have a fucking clue what was happening. Most of the time I could figure it out by looking at the panels before/after, but sometimes I just had no clue what the image was supposed to be. I don't think it affected my overall comprehension of the story, but I found it to be quite jarring. I know those few panels are going to bug the crap out of me until I figure them out! The artist's style is also very rushed and scribbly, which suits the story but doesn't help my case. Overall: I love the premise of Biomega, but found it strangely lacking in story and often had no clue what went on in certain panels. It's unnecessarily long, so unless you're a collector I'd suggest borrowing rather than buying this one. That being said, I'm really excited to borrow start the next one!

    It's another zombie apocalypse story that seems to be the hot thing nowadays, except they're called drones in this reincarnation of the we're-all-going-to-die-and-become-reanimated-corpses story. The art is dark and gritty, with explosions, fight scenes and exploding heads. But I found the strangely far-spaced eyes a bit disconcerting. Plot-wise, the reader is pretty much thrown into the midst of things (or onto the back of Zoichi's inky black AI equipped motorcycle if you so wish) and you kind of figure things out on the way. If that wasn't enough to provide a basis for entertaining story, there is also the rifle-touting bear. That talks. Awesome. What zombie apocalypse story is complete without an armed animal amigo?I also wanna say that this is a dystopian story, but I'm not sure it counts when practically everyone understands that the present world is by no means an utopia. Since this is pretty much an action-packed intro volume, don't expect too much story. Or expect what little story you do get needing to be clarified. Looking forward to picking up the next volumes to see where these hijinks lead.Oh, did I mention the heat-packing talking bear?

    Note: I've read the english translated books, not the Japanese editions like the one pictured.Biomega is one of the best New manga series out there. Zoichi is one kick-but synthetic human! But it gets super confusing, especially after the second book, so read carefuly! (I had to reread all the books just to understand it fully.)The drawing style is unique, but it can get very graphic and just down right grotesque at times(nothing inapropriate, but its a post-apoctiliptic(sp?) zombie pandemic based story, what do you expect?). My sugestion for people thinking about reading this particular manga is to read the rating and content warnings BEFORE you begin reading. Just to see if the story is stuff you can handle. Personally i love Tsutomu Nihei's drawing style. Her character's faces bugged me at first (especially arround the eyes) but i've gotten over that, and the settings and characters are drawn in extremely impressive detail!In my opinion, a good read!

    Zombies und Apokalypse haben Hochkonjunktur, BIOMEGA liegt also voll im Trend. Warum hat mir der Band dann nicht wirklich gefallen? Die Zeichnungen sind überwiegen ansprechend und gelegentlich auch einfalls-bzw. detailreich, aber Mangas sind anscheinend wirklich nicht mein Ding (richtig, BIOMEGA ist auch meine Manga-Premiere gewesen). Ich hatte häufiger Proleme, mir aus der Bilderfolge die Handlung zusammen zu reimen - und ja, doch, ich habe die Mangalesefolge beachtet. Es gibt wenig Text, was nicht unbedingt nachteilig sein muss, aber mich hier manchmal doch ratlos zurück ließ. Der entscheidende Knapckpunkt aber ist: die Handlung hat mich einfach nicht mitgenommen. Da mir für Mangas die Kriterien fehlen, abschließend nur noch einmal der deutliche Hinweis, dass diese Rezension nur eine sehr subjektive Bewertung darstellt.

    I can't even comment on this book because all my impressions of it are overwhelmed by the talking Russian bipedal bear with a shotgun. Whose presence is never explained. Despite being a TALKING BEAR WITH A SHOTGUN.

    If there's anything wrong with this story so far, it's that the first volume might have been too quickly read. It was an absorbing read with surprising depth for the first volume of a manga, but when I finished the first volume I felt like it had gone by too quickly.I generally like manga with dark themes. It seems like those with darker themes and warnings of mature content are usually the only manga in which the authors give themselves permission to write with depth and thought-provoking ideas, thoughtfully explored. The first volume of Biomega is an exemplary case of that, even leaving out the cutesy/comical touches here and there that seem like an irresistible lure for the majority of even the best manga authors, despite the fact they often just distract from the substance of a good story. None of that here.I've seen the Blame! anime based on work by the same author, and I see a trend already: synthetic human man as the certified badass protagonist, slender blonde artificial intelligence woman working with him, and "innocent girl" type with some kind of central role to the story. So far, I have no problem with this repeated pattern (and I have only seen it in two works, one of which was an anime adaptation; I have not read anything by Tsutomu Nihei yet other than this volume). It seems well-handled so far, antagonists are not just tissue paper for the protagonist to brush through with ease, and as long as it serves to carry a good story I'm happy with it.This seems like the kind of story with mature themes that is actually for readers with some mental maturity, which is really what I'm looking for most of the time in manga, and the characters are pretty comprehensible and understandable given their apparent motivations. The villains of the piece seem especially evil, which often leads to cartoonish, unbelievable motivations, but in this case they tend to make some sense so far. The only thing that seems like it might be out of place in the whole thing is the bear, but I suppose that will make sense in time as well if I keep reading the series (and I certainly intend to keep reading it).In short, I quite liked this, and look forward to the next book.

    Volume 1 has ten "chapters," and I read this volume very slowly - sometimes re-reading chapters a couple of times. As I noted while reading this, the artwork is really good - and I wish it was colored. However, the artwork is really good and the story is a bit gruesome, so I am also glad that it is not colored. Readers all seem to comment on how good the artwork is. But isn't most published artwork good to some degree? In this case, the scenery is good. For example, in chapter one, there are some frames of Kanoe and his bike that present the daunting scope of the background - the world. The bike is racing alone on an open highway/bridge toward a huge, ersatz-megalithic structure. And when Kanoe screeches his bike to a halt there before the gate to the structure, you know he's made "an entrance." There is a full-page frame of Kanoe on the bike as smoke/fog swirls around it. Its great artwork, because it makes the reader feel engaged with the setting.Because the plot is sketchy at best. Its difficult to write, I think, a great involved plot with spare verbiage. Its difficult to tell a story without info-dumping and backstory and commentary. So, the reader is thrown into this mess in media res and all the reader knows is that there is a cool motorbike and there are "infected drones." Artwork probably is not enough in this case to want to read onward. But there is just the barest hint of a storyline - with enough mysterious/weird characters (Cp. bear) - that I want to read on into the second volume. I think the whole series is six volumes - and good or bad, I know I can get through six volumes.

    Nun.Es kann sehr gut sein, dass Tsutomu Nihei mittlerweile einer meiner absoluten Lieblings-Mangazeichner ist.Für seine Bilder mussten wahrscheinlich ein paar hundert Tintenfässchen dran glauben, aber der Effekt den sie auf einen haben, ist das allemal wert. Auch wenn nach der Lektüre alle anderen Mangas auf einmal aussehen, als wären sie überbelichtet.[Ich schreib hier wahrscheinlich noch weiter, sobald ich nicht ne halbe Stunde für einen Absatz brauche, der mir dann nicht gefällt. Aber rest assured, Biomega ist nice.]

    Art is fantastic a cross of manga and Frank Miller. The story is a bit rote at this point, but I appreciate that the "Drones," aren't simply zombies and have some physical changes. The astronaut floating in space, sending spores to Earth is a great doomsday mechanism as well.

    The first volume for this series was awesome. The grand, fantastic scale of the world is foiled wonderfully with a tight, self-contained story. The characters have clear goals and the plot works without drawn out world building. However, this is where the later volumes dragged, especially when the cute fantasy elements like a talking bear are repurposed into ‘secret’ plot points. The art loses its punch halfway through the run, which is unfortunate because for a short manga the first volume is leagues above the other five books. The future-gothic/cyberpunk style is dropped and replaced with bright, flatly inked images of cliché jap-zombies, which is a minor element of this volume pushed to silly lengths by the end of the run. I’d recommend this specific book, but if you’re rolling your eyes in volume two you’d be best to read a synopsis and move onto something else. It doesn’t get much better.

    My introduction into Japanime and Manga began with Akira, Grey, Ghost In the Shell, Robotech and Appleseed. With the vast amount of manga on bookstore shelves today it's difficult to discover truly great SciFi manga like the ones that introduced me into the genre.Tsutomu Nihei's Biomega is a great addition to the genre. What stops me from fully saying it's a must like the others is the often confusing storytelling. I found myself getting lost several times on characters being too similar to each other to fully distinguish the roles they play. Don't get me wrong Nihei's art has many inspired moments and there are truly fantastic moments, but the consistency overall is not measured.What I really appreciate is the cinematic storytelling Niehi has. The use of crosshatching creates wonderful textures and the use of speed lines really creates a feeling that this should be an anime. But that's also it's fault. Sometimes the story panels feel like storyboards and there aren't enough in between panels to carry the storytelling from panel to panel. I often had to go back to see if I had missed something.Biomega feels very much like a Resident Evil video game, so it doesn't tread new ground. There are some novel SciFi concepts in there, but overall nothing new or differentiating enough to garner a unique place as the aforementioned books.

    'Biomega' is one of the most brutally depressing pieces of media I have ever consumed; this is a zombie apocalypse where the closest thing we have to hope for humanity is the hope that some androids and at least one sapient bear might be able to rebuild civilization. But as you might have guessed by the phrase "sapient bear," once you get past that depressing characteristic, 'Biomega' becomes one of the weirdest and most engrossing pieces of media I've ever had the pleasure of consuming. Nihei's story is fairly barebones, and what little exists is handed out sparingly; but 'Biomega' rides on his gripping visual work. I would love to have half of the pages of this manga as posters. I cannot stress how disgustingly beautiful and beautifully disgusting this series is. And despite the flimsiness of the narrative, Nihei's world does feel built-up and fairly deep, as if each detail is a mere skimming of the lake's surface. Overall, I'd give this a solid recommendation. Those looking for some of Nihei's work that has a stronger plot might want to look to 'Knights of Sidonia,' which I strongly recommend to a similar reader demographic.

    Nihei's newest adventure to hit the U.S. isn't quite so abstract as "Blame!", but it makes up for that with sheer sci-fi action/adventure nuttiness. It involves an artificial human with an artificially intelligent motorcycle diving into a quarantined city to rescue the girl there who is immune to the zombie virus spreading like an epidemic. Fortunately, she's got a talking, fighting bear to protect her as well."Biomega" is over the top, and at times you just have to applaud its willing absurdity. I can't not love a book that has a page where the main character tells a bear to get on his bike, and the last chapter is full of "sure, why the heck not", larger-than-life action.As in "Blame!", Nihei excels at portraying immense futuristic environments, whether it's a decayed Mars base or a massive city in the middle of the ocean. He's also great at staging action, creating set pieces that demand the reader flip through them quickly. This is a one-sitting manga, not just because it reads fast, but also because it's extremely hard to put down.

    This mamga is the usual Nihei stuff, some Killy-like badass character is on a mission and kills 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 quickly we wonder if there is going to be more volumes or a sequel 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 Abbara.

    Wow, the book is about an inch bigger and wider than most manga which is great because there's alot to see. The cover looks slick and very nice. The pages and print job are top notch, even includes a couple color pages (some publishers don't include the color pages). Overall it looks like VizSig department did a very solid job on making a quality books.The overall plot is pretty straight forward action plot. Downright minimalist in just giving you the basic details of what's happening. However, this serves the story well by not crashing the atmosphere with "witty" one-liners and other things of that nature.The art is top notch and is probably Nihei's best work. It's dark and surreal and reminiscent of beksinski works, but done in black ink. The art really does the storytelling here. Action sequences are fast and vivid enough to get the point across without someone narrating their actions with dialogue bubbles. The same goes for the jokes. This allows for large excellent looking and highly detailed panels and 2 page spreads.

    This review is of the entire series, not just the first volume.One of the best science fiction stories of all time and quite possibly the best illustrated action sequences. The is much better than Tsutomu Nihei's similar counterpart manga Blame! (AKA Killy In The Cyber Dungeon). The main reason being Blame! had a lot of lulls between important sequences while Biomega has a consistent plotline that follows an easy to follow sequence of events. If author Nihei continues to write such epic tales he could quite possibly go down in history as the best sci-fi manga author of our time.You definitely need to pick a copy of this up if you like science fiction at all. Don't let its comic format scare you away if you aren't used to comics.PS I would love to see a movie and/or anime of this. Seems like it would make a better anime than a manga. They tried to make Blame! into a bunch of mini manga episodes, but that was an epic failure I'd prefer not to mention.

    Quem me dera que mais mangas de cyberpunk tivesse este ritmo acelerado, que deixa as imagem falarem por si mesmas, sem perder tempo com explicações excessivas sobre o world-building. A informação está lá e não foi preciso explicarem-nos como se tivéssemos 10 anos. Por outro lado, teria sido simpático explicarem, de todo, qual é a cena com o urso. -.- Para não falar que se vão meter um urso antropomórfico a dispara armas ao menos dêem-lhe polegares oponíveis. A propósito, os pormenores no locutor que se suicida, desde a arma, ao penteado e bigode, foram um excelente piscar de olhos ao leitor. Well done. Só não dou mais de 3 estrelas porque a história, para já, ainda não emociona muito. Uma praga, uma miúda que é a excepção à regra em relação aos outros infectados, um herói bem equipado numa bike e uma organização a armar-se em génio do Mal. Não é exactamente o pináculo da originalidade, mas entretém muito bem.

    My thoughts on #1-3.Dystopian manga about a girl, a synthetc human, a bear and some rivaling corporations. Its got all the stuff you want and expect from a virus driven zombie apocoalypse; the zombies(drones), the we-are-immune-for-some-reason people(accommodators), the bad guys who wants to use the immune folk for all sorts of evil experiments and things, and the good guys who wants to rescue and protect them.It's also got the stuff you want a good manga of this type; Brilliant artwork, tons of explosions and gunplay, high speed motorcycle stuff, and the sort of larger-than-life-ness that only the japanese seem to get just right. For example this little handgun you see on the cover, it stops the front of a speeding train dead, bringing the rest of it flying overhead much like the way a bike would if you put a stick in the front wheel.All in all I really liked the first 2 books. The 3rd one really confused me, but I think that will be soted out in the next volume(s).

    Si te gusta la ciencia-ficción y las historias de zombis, éste es tu manga. En él encontrarás humanos sintéticos, osos que hablan, mujeres misteriosas, islas artificiales, corporaciones secretas, unidades de ejecución forzosa del servicio de sanidad pública, etc... Y es que últimamente los zombis, esos seres sin seso que recorren las calles en busca de carne tierna que llevarse a la boca, están volviendo con fuerza tanto al cine como a los cómics. El manga no podía ser ajeno a ese fenómeno global. Tiene un dibujo correcto, muy adecuado en el diseño de criaturas y objetos hipertecnológicos (aunque la moto del protagonista recuerda bastante a las que usaban en Akira), pero quizás excesivamente estático en las secuencias de acción. => Sigue leyendo la reseña en http://www.eltemplodelasmilpuertas.com

    This was pretty good, and it was a bit of a different take on the zombie genre. It was different in the sense that the full outbreak of the epidemic has not happened yet. The hero is hoping to help stop it. However, the odds seem slim as he searches for a girl who may hold the key. In a way, this kind of story is not new. And yet, the pacing, the action, and the very gritty, dark art all come together to make a pretty good story. This manga is also interesting because it relies more on the visual; there is not as much text as other mangas, and yet I think it works pretty well. And this is the first volume, so it looks like things will go a bit deeper as well. I hope to continue reading the series.
