      Instagram || Twitter || Facebook || || PinterestI just read the new Cardcaptor Sakura book and this manga could not have been a harder contrast to that if it tried. Cardcaptor is a shoujo manga intended for young girls and Blame! is a seinen manga intended for older guys. It contains not a single dash of cuteness or romance or magic; instead it is a grim post-apocalyptic, like J.G. Ballard's HIGH RISE, as populated by genetically mutated cyborgs that are something like The Matrix as done by the [...]


    2. Bullet Review:Not a huge consumer of manga, but my coworker found this one, so I gave it a go. Although I found a lot of the action hugely confusing, overall it had a great sense of place and surrounding - desolate, endless, huge vast caverns and canyons of conduits and metal. Silence. Decay. Mystery.So while the action failed for me, I found that the emotions this drudged up in me were more than enough to bump up the star rating.


    3. I was 10 years old the first time I read a comic book that had no words in it. It was a G.I. Joe comic, issue 21, called, 'Silent Interlude.' I remember being blown away that I could follow along on this Snake Eyes story even though it had no words in it. The artwork literally told the story and It singlehandedly changed the way in which I looked at comic books.Now, 30 years later, enters Blame! While Blame! does have text and dialogue within its story, it is very light and pages can go by witho [...]


    4. Tsutomu Nihei lleva toda la vida con nosotros. Como adalid del manga cyberpunk, el espacio arquitectónico infinito y las búsquedas no menos infinitas entre masacres justificadas por decisiones de raza, inteligencia o territorio, sus historias siempre acaban orbitando sobre la idea de una humanidad condenada buscando el modo de volver a sus días de gloria. O cuanto menos, intentando no ser absolutamente aniquilados por entidades sintéticas.Blame! Master Edition es la excusa perfecta para volv [...]


    5. Japanese manga does cyberpunk so well. "Akira" and "Ghost in the Shell" are classics, and "Blame!" is worthy to rank among them. This master edition collects the story in an oversized format. It follows the mysterious Kyrii, who armed with a powerful handgun searches for an elusive mutant gene in a futuristic world unlike any other.I love how simplistic the story is told. Dialogue is minimal which really gives a sense of how isolating a journey that Kyrii is on. The plot unfolds slowly but you p [...]


    6. Blame! tiene un aura casi mítica en el manga. Una de esas obras a las que tanto pega el adjetivo "seminal", con una trama críptica y un dibujo que parece haber influenciado no solo a otros autores (Gantz parece una especie de hijo directo), sino casi a la percepción que tenemos del manga, con esas armas más grandes que aquellos que las disparan, explosiones sangrientas, acción a raudales y una imaginería imposible.Lo más destacable para mí, que siempre he sido un fan de las historias, es [...]


    7. Wow. This was pretty awesome. I haven't read much manga in years, but I wanted to see how the Oasis handled it. Answer: pretty well! I'll be continuing with this series. It's like Akira stacked vertical. Good shit.


    8. Nihei nos lleva a un futuro distópico extraño, una enorme ciudad subterránea que parece abarcarlo todo, miles de niveles y como cielo una pequeña rendija que deja ver la luz del sol. En esta ambientación Killy busca humanos cuyos genes no hayan sido modificados, tendrá que enfrentarse a inteligencias artificiales, ciborgs asesinos, extraños seres producto de la evolución humana Este es un manga en que los diálogos no tienen gran importancia, la mayor parte de la historia se nos va conta [...]


    9. Like everything Nihei writes, this is bizarre, and dense, and incomprehensible, and utterly freaking cool.


    10. A heinous and unabashed mistranslation of the proper title Blam! (the sound of a gun firing and a gun being the most talkative amongst all the books characters.)All that said, this is very clearly a first work. When a book is largely non verbal the effective use of showing through panels is essential and there are a lot of moments where one is lost amongst action. Like going to a rave and having the strobe lights flashing just in time to see the awkward in between moments of every action. I had [...]


    11. I'm not the biggest fan of visual narrative -- comics as well as television -- that is heavily based on fight scenes, but this first volume of Blame! is intriguing. It sets a visual context in ways that the setting, The City, becomes the main character.


    12. Me encanta la sensación de soledad, de descubrimiento, de enormidad del mundo en el que se mueve. Blame consigue mucho con muy poco, no es un manga que se lea, es un manga que se contempla. Yo leí Blame hace bastantes años, pero lo hice por scans, y gracias al cielo que panini ha decidido sacar esta magnífica edición en españa porque es maravilloso poder releer uno de mis mangas favoritos en este formato tan grande. Deseando que salga el segundo tomo para poder seguir releyendo.

    14. There's an English language version of this on but I couldn't find it here on . The book has an interesting style in that there is no narration and not a whole lot of dialogue. Somewhat extreme version of show don't tell. I kind of like a bit more context myself. The artwork was pretty intriguing, some of it on grand scale.




    15. Blame! feels full of potential with its oppressive, dark atmosphere and cyber-punk aesthetic. The monster designs are fantastic, the architecture impressive, and his skill at coming up with future-tech, creative. Its too bad his humans are so bland, in both design and personality, and his plot so vague that its hard to connected to this visually interesting world. Its easy to see this is a very early project by Nihei. The first three chapters are so rough its often difficult to tell what exactly [...]


    16. Very little in the way of exposition is provided in 400 pages of manga here, with a few hints dropped here and there amidst sprawling landscapes and abrupt episodes of extreme violence. When this happens, and it happens more often than I like in manga, I get the feeling the writer/illustrator is exploring graphics rather than story, the former of which is an enjoyable space-filler and the latter they haven't yet figured out. At present, there are potentially limitless factions on a gigantic city [...]


    17. As great as its reputation! When it comes to dark, violent cyberpunk comics with great artstyle then blame! is the one. I never heared of it before i saw the anime movie on netflix. The movie was not the best anime i had seen but it was fine. What i liked the most about it was the art, so i had done some research on the net and it didnt take long to figure out what the manga behind the movie was about and how good its reputation was. As i love this kind of setting i felt ashamed not to know abou [...]


    18. From the guy that brought Knights of Sidonia comes this beast. A huge city that reminds me of some early sci fiction that contained earth arks and the such The beast itself is the city and how it operates. While this first volume is light on exposition, the action and art convey a lot of story as the protagonist climbs up levels and across large spaces battling automata that were once used functionally and seem to have forgotten their purpose. There are constant builders who destroy as they work [...]


    19. Well, Nihei is Nihei. I've read Knights of Sidonia, so I kind of knew what I got into. Blame! is a dark and suffocating manga in which nothing really happens. It's very similar to Sidonia and it's not about the plot either, but more about the atmosphere. Nihei is a master at creating these horrific feelings that are hard to pinpoint. The story is set in the future and there are hardly any humans around, and the city is so big that no one knows where the surface even is anymore. Kyrii travels try [...]


    20. 'Blame! Vol. 1' by Tsutomu Nihei is a massive 408 page story of a man trapped in a huge city, and this is only volume 1!In a book that has more visual than narrative, we meet a man named Kyrii that is travelling through a strange environment. We eventually learn that he is living in a huge city that seems to have grown out of machines. No one knows what land is. Kyrii has a gun called a Graviton Beam Emitter that can take out the threats to him. He is looking for the Net Terminal Gene, though I [...]


    21. This has quickly become an obsession for me. The original 10 comics were published long ago. The first three omnibus editions (out of six) are out now, the next three due by end of year 2017. I am having an extremely difficult time not ordering the original 10, even though I have 1-3 omnibus and already ordered 4-6. It's that good. It's all the best of manga without the kid stuff. No crazy eyes, no blushing, no embarrassed boys going through puberty, no outraged schoolgirls or vampires. This wor [...]


    22. I got to read this thanks to Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Blame is a beautiful, violent manga that has very little dialogue but keeps your attention with its gritty art-style and action that keeps pulling you forward. Did I mention it’s violent? Not for everyone, I enjoyed it and had an idea of what I was getting into after having seen the anime recently. Kyrii is on the hunt for a gene that allows a person to interact with the technology that runs amok in this [...]


    23. I read this because Woolie of the Super Best Friends sold the hell out of it on a podcast. I picked it up as an ebook, just to check it out, but man I'm going to have to go back and get a physical copy in order to properly appreciate the artwork.The monster design in this reminds me heavily of Hayao Miyazaki's designs for bugs and monsters in the "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" manga. I didn't realize how strongly I enjoyed that look until I read this.Because man. That shit is so so cool.I [...]


    24. Not my favorite manga so far. The art was very detailed but in a way that made it difficult to tell what I was looking at, and by the end of the first volume I still didn't know what the main character was doing, and wasn't impressed enough by any other aspect of the story to care. However, the little hints of worldbuilding - all the people Kyrii interacts with and their different lifestyles, and even different cultures and languages - THAT was interesting. I could see myself getting more into t [...]


    25. Blame! is a different experience for any reader, manga manics and never read a manga in my life. Why blame! stands out from all other manga is how it tells it story. The story is not told through words/ dialogue. It is told in its art, atmosphere, and surroundings. I could pick up thing about the main charater, Kirii and his world before he could speak. Kirii barely speaks. You can sense the loneliness and emptyness in this vast sci fyi world. What amazes me is how Blame is able to have two diff [...]


    26. Not really my cup of tea. There was a lot of action and the scenes were drawn very well but there was almost no dialogue. I need character development in a story and this had none of that. In a way this reminded me a lot of John Wick. It was one person, focused on a very specific task, and along the way he killed so many people. I didn't really care for that movie and I didn't really care for this manga.


    27. Tsutomu Nihei has certainly gotten better as a writer and artist since this was published, but there are some intriguing germs of ideas that he develops more fully in Knights of Sidonia. Still, a creepy, gory surreal cyberpunk series that's worth a gander, though don't expect things to be very well explained by the end of this book or you'll be mightily frustrated.


    28. The story is grappling and builds the readers curiosity with many questions. The art amplifies the mood and sensation of the stories atmosphere in such a unique way that makes it such an amazing story.
