From a narrative standpoint, the plot is advanced with a "less is more" approach, and I think that's handled very well here. It's the full-flavour and full-fat Nihei - are we going to be shooting into an amazing high or are we trapped in one really bad trip? 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. is set in what is simply known as "The City", a gigantic megastructure now occupying much of what used to be the Solar System.

Tsutomu Nihei is a powerful drug and it needs to be cut with something if you're not to obliterate your brain when taking a hit. A lot of this, then, ends up serving as a kind of wordless architectural surrealism, from which the vague outlines of a plot begin to well up in pure fascination. Blame is Nihei's most idiosyncratic work and so a creator interview, some development sketches, a publication retrospective and so on would really have tied a bow on the package and been a completing statement of helping us not just read Blame! Cibo, die als Level-9-Schutzwehreinheit wiedergeboren wurde, trägt den Schlüssel in sich, der den Untergang der Metropole aufhalten kann. Mankind still exists in this cold architectural hell but the race, and its mutant degenerations which have incubated in the damp canyon-cracks pitting The City's concrete tectonics, is small and scattered.

Aunque de diseño espectacular y trazo expresivo, algunos de los diseños de personaje han quedado demasiado anticuados. Dhomochevsky sacrifices his life to kill Davine, but not before she downloads an extremely powerful Level 9 Safeguard from the Netsphere which manifests in Cibo's body.

The sheer architectural immensities are impressive and breathtaking, packed with (attractive) young characters, in life-threatening situations, often involving bizarre creatures and baroque machinery. It's as stupid as Yoda ping-ponging around the set like Flubber in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (and sit down at the back, that wasn't "lol awesome" it was a cheap belittling of a character who had been the calm spiritual core of the series).

What's also impressive is the level of invention on display - you'd expect that the theme of "empty buildings" would get a bit old after a few hundred pages but credit to Nihei for continuing to show a wide variety of scenery, with every backdrop demonstrating a new cityscape.It's more than just a compact BFG-9000, though - it doesn't just do high damage like a video-game weapon with a big ATK value, it's a godlike physics-warping tool of utter negation that twists reality around it (at one point he fires it as a sort of improvised shield so its space-distorting effects deflect incoming fire away from him - that this also annihilates a district a few miles away is eh, just one of those things). I thought it would be faster to get through than other Manga because there were so few words to read, however, it took just as long (if not longer) because I was taking so much time in absorbing the art and how brilliantly it told a story that so very easily pulled me within. Si además sumamos que hacen aparición unas criaturas llamadas Constructores, que construyen y reconstruyen la ciudad sin orden ni concierto, decir que no ocurre nada o su equivalente en imbecilés, que no se explica nada, sería mentir descaradamente al respecto del manga. It can't be emphasised enough how crucial this reprint is to better enjoying Blame - while it does make a copy significantly more expensive it provides sufficient resolution to bring out the detail that would otherwise be lost in the confines of a regular manga (particularly given the cheap printing of Blame's early original editions).
