Not for everyone--but worth the try! (Vol. 1)
Aug 17, 2010 by Lauren Bedford
I'll be honest--flipping through the first volume of Blame! was discouraging. The art style was not my thing and dialog was slim to non-existent for a majority of the manga. Despite these two cons, I was compelled to read the first few pages just to give it a chance. I was pulled in immediately and there was no stopping the page-turning after those first few pages.
In volume one, we are introduced to the main character, atmosphere and civilizations of the Blame! world. Though not much is explained about Killy, we are told (or at least it is implied with the scenery) that he is searching through a world that is overrun by what appears to be mutated machines. It is a fight for survival through infinite levels of mega-structure in search for the Net Terminal Genes.
