There's also Blame: Netsphere Engineer, a one-chapter gaiden-esque epilogue; and NOiSE, the prequel manga in which the Netsphere disaster takes place. Not gonna dump either of them, because they are far too long - just letting you know that they exist, if you didn't know. Also keep in mind: the translation for Netsphere Engineer (NSE) sucks and makes a few bizarre, but sweeping, contradictions. If you can ignore those, it's an enjoyable piece.

>>156271039
Thanks for the dump, the only version I could find was mangahere but it had shitty translation and image artifacts.
>>156271084
I wouldn't say that, I do think the author certainly could've included a few more explanations though, it's one thing to spoonfeed your audience and it's the other to make them search every pixel for hidden plot clues.
>>
>>156271257
i enjoyed it more in the beginning, when it was unconstrained by story and that wandering ambiguous possibility. it was just a visual pleasure, it could mean anything, the nature of the mega structure meant he could come upon any situation nihei wanted on a whim. your not waiting for the next plot twist to be typed out, your just watching, purely in it for the ride.
>>
>>156271614
I mostly agree. What really left me an impression to me other than the visuals of course was the absurd space/time scale, I was left spechless in some points, like the elevator part.

A new official release is in the middle of being released. But it's got a lot of problems: mainly, that a lot of the art has been redrawn across all volumes. It's not always as noticeable as THE BOX, but it's there - shit like Killy's hair being lengthened, or changes in shading. This is the noticed changelog from just chapter 1 (of like 70, or whatever).

Hayashida: I still don’t know how to find the right size and place for them. I think the talented artists out there know some sort of trick to it, but I feel like I’ll never figure it out till the day I die, unless someone comes out and tells me.

–I’ll bet there’s a real difference in how people with experience working as assistants approach things and how people without that experience approach things.

Hayashida: True. It seems like most people have done some time as an assistant somewhere.

>Are you talking about the master edition?
Yes. There's also a few issues with the translations, now that you've had me start to recall these things. In some insane, disassociated decision-making process, they came to rename our dear protagonist "Kyrii". And the first argument that comes to mind in their defense would be that it's the 'proper' transliteration of the Japanese name - if it weren't for the fact that the true English name, "Killy", is WRITTEN ON THE JAPANESE VERSIONS.

I bought the raw ones when they came out 2 years ago, so I know what I'm talking about.

I was making a point about 3D and computer generation in general and passingly mentioned Nihei (with the *intention* of meaning his current works), and a bunch of people blew up on me for it. If they wanted to be an effect, I should do them the courtesy of being the cause.

>>156273666
And this is why I'll never bother buying manga again in my life. It was Shibo in the Blame manga I got and I'm way too used to that name. I'm also certain it's more accurate.
>>
>>156275299
>I'm also certain it's more accurate.
It's accurate in the same way that "Kiri'i" is accurate. Mangaka write names in the English alphabet for a reason; Japanese doesn't have enough support for such things. The Japanese transliteration of the English word "lock" is three character syllables. ロ、ッ、ク.

>>156275580
Oh I thought it was written in hiraganas.
Well damn.

>>156275650
It's written in katakana, but my point was that you can't just equivocate kana and English. Otherwise, you end up with "Domochefusukii", "Puseru", "Mensaabu" and so on.

Then don't watch it. Simple as that. No one's gonna take the original Blame away and there never was going to be a proper adaption anyway. Japan had all the time in the world to make a proper animu by themselves and they didn't, so it's not like "the true version" got cockblocked by the CGI movie.

There is no way they could properly transfer old Nihei's style to a hand-drawn anime without dumping a ridiculous ammount of money and good staff on it.

Nihei is to be (mostly) read in order. That's not like a "lol start with the greeks" type answer, it's just practical; there's an extremely linear progression of his art style throughout his works.

You're going to want to read NOiSE, then Abara, then Biomega, then the 3 chapters of Blame Gakuen. If you can still respect Nihei after the second half of Biomega and all of Gakuen, then move on to Sidonia and then his current work, Aposimz.

No, and the widespread translation of it is wrong.

Entirely dependent on how Nihei wants to frame it. The City creates its own gravity in order to prevent itself from collapsing. Its material is teleported into place instead of being physically brought in. It never moves, and has extremely low function in comparison to any real living environment.

One thing I never quite got was how the bald safeguard version of Sanakan, the one that tried to kill the electric fishermen inhabiting TOHA industries, transitioned into the governing agency version.

Those who complain about Netflix and the anime simply and completely missed the point.

It's not either we have hand-drawn anime or a 3D anime.
It's either we have a 3D anime or NOTHING at all.

In this environment and economy, asking a studio a hand-draw Biomega or Sidonia is like asking them if they'd like to go bankrupt.

So, either avoid the anime (same as how many avoid the Berserk anime) or enjoy it for what it is and be glad that it helped bring new people into Nihei shit. Being mad at Netflix achieves shit all.
>>
>>156282247
I don't really like the idea of Nihei going mainstream. I mean right now it's already known enough, we're in the perfect balance I'd say.
>>
>>156282414

Hand drawn animation isn't as costly as you may think. Also there's literally no way Netflix can go bankrupt at this point, but they probably won't make a profit either, in which case they should leave it the fuck alone and adapt more accessible shit.

That train of thought goes both ways. The existence of an adaption doesn't diminish the original. It may even help the original author get a bit more recognition in what's already a pretty shitty job with long working hours.

>>156283807
I'm not him. And do you not understand the value of exclusivity? Do you not have any idea of how disgusting and diluted the Nihei fanbase has become in the past few years? There was once intelligent and complicated threads about Nihei works. There was once a time when every single mention of Nihei didn't precede an "I DON'T GET IT" post or a "THIS MANGA IS SHIT" post, or an "IT'S TOO DARK" post. The extremely-deliberate attempts at mass appeal in Sidonia gave Nihei the masses he wanted, and permanently ruined virtually all discussion of his works.
>>
>>156283807
I did not call myself an "original fan", I was just stating that going netflix level mainstream is bad in my opinion.
>>
>>156284051
The discussions before were far in between and almost non existent even if you think of them as more serious or whatever. If the fan base and grown that has certainly not changed one bit, the serious discussions you love so much are still there and probably increased, you're just unable to recognize them because they now form part of a bigger pool of more light or shittier discussions and posts.

Compared to this page in Aposimz, I'd say the detail level stayed roughly the same on his architecture shots, though he got lazier with the screentone and hatching. Also the architecture here and in Sidonia got a softer look it it. Less ruler precision and more freehand.

Interesting. I'd say the style in Sidonia has more of the fuzzy feel of Miyazaki's Nausicaa.
>>
>>156286460
Despite his obvious attempts at making more mainstream manga, his stuff is still pretty weird and involves a lot of the same recurring subject matter. I don't really buy into this idea that he's "sold out" when his manga is still very "him".

>>156271974
At a QnA I attended nihei confirmed that there was no cg, not even a computer involved in blame.
>>
>>156287883
No one is gonna ask nihei to write something that isn't at least a little weird. That's because he is at heart, kinda weird. So this is the result.

It's not really selling out, as much as trying to be more appealing.

No probably not. He tried and failed to use CG for sidonia and instead just resorted to kit bashing to make the mech design.

it started out fine, then shot out in a bunch of different directions near the middle and turned into a gigantic fucking mess and it was the first in the "fuck it, I'm bored with this thing,here's a shit ending", series.

Sidonia was next and the retards wiling to follow that power armor in the snow manga all the way to the end will have it as well. Blame was so fucking simple he couldn't fuck it up, guy was looking for thing, guy found thing, the end. he will never top it.
