Manga Review

The hallmark of any good manga is that you can follow the storyline without being able to read a scrap of the dialog. This was how we enjoyed Blame! years ago when it was first published in Japan. With clearly defined art, an easy to follow yet complex storyline, design and artwork well above par, Blame! is clearly top-notch manga in every respect.

Blame!Our hero wanders a cyberpunk labyrinth (which seems to be the inspiration for the look of the two later Matrix sequels) of pipework, catwalks and chasms fighting cyborgs and other bizarre creatures. Fortunately; he's got one helluva gun and he knows how to use it. Blame! was great fun even when we couldn't read the dialog, it's now even better that Tokyopop has given us the English version (which still reads right to left!). A DVD OVA is available as well.
