Synopsis

Set in the future, the plot follows Zouichi Kanoe and his AI companion Fuyu Kanoe, whose luminous form is integrated into the system of his motorcycle. They are agents sent by Toha Heavy Industries to retrieve humans with the ability to resist and transmute the N5S infection, which is spreading across the world, turning humans into "Drones"; disfigured, zombie-like beings.

From the creator of dark mega structures of unknown origin, Biomega is the laidback easygoing cousin of the brooding and unintelligible Blame.

As usual, story takes a backseat to vision. This is not a criticism, but an acknowledgement of Nihei's trademark, sensibilities and priorities. You don’t check out this man's manga to get involved in a deep plot; you do it for the mood, the scope, the imagination in ambiguity. Having said that Biomega does resort to some exposition, and even 'story so far' and a chart of characters and organisations, its like Nihei feels sorry for us and is being generous, or read more

Biomega, one of the most recent and current works of Tsutomu Nihei, author of the acclaimed mangas BLAME! and Noise. If you read those two mangas and looking for something new from the author or just looking something Cyberpunk and extremely dark theme, than don't look further.

Story:
The situation of the story is a little like the Resident Evil game theme, where a person must survive or search a person in a city overrun by peoples that are infected with a virus. Kanoe Zouichi, a biker agent from a powerful organization, Toh-a Heavy Industries, with AI-Companion motorcycle, Kanoe Fuyu, where they must retrieve read more

It's strange for me to read 18+ rated Manga since I am 14 but I did love the thought of the story so I brought the first the 2 volumes.

The art may seem as though it is weak and dark, but the widescreen shots of the surrounding landscapes are excellent I think they give the series a light feel, when looking at the landscapes I feel an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia which makes me love the series more.

Unfortunatly I found the characters inhuman and wooden, I could not see emotion (even though the main character isn't human) but still a little emotion can go read more

Biomega is depressing and distressing. The most part of characters are without exspression and few talk. The edifices is very elaborated and dominate the landscape. In this view human aberration fight for change the world.
I love the style of the author Tsutomu Nihei. The design of Biomega is detailed, with gigantic structure that dominate the protagonist Zoichi Kanoe(but is same to Killy!). Is a artificial human, and search Ion Green a immortal human, for prevent the diffusion of the virus N5S as transform the human in zombi(call Drone in the manga).
Together with Knights of Sydonia this is the better manga of Tsutomu Nihei.

Both are dystopian sci-fi manga with minimalistic dialogue, created by Tsutomu Nihei. If you ever feel like being awed by the best artwork in the medium, then check these out. They also have the best panelling that I have seen from any manga. It looks and feels like an action movie. Just be prepared for the despair and depression contained in the story.
A hopeless cyperpunk dystopia, mass death and destruction, laser rifles, and super badass motorcycles!
Even though this is a 13+ and Biomega is a 18+ they both have amazing backgrounds and are set in worn torn cities
Spores from space fall and create new lifeforms on Earth. Parasyte's closer to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, while Biomega deals with cultist zombies.
Same strangeness, creatures from sick imaginations. Biomega is more fast paced while King of Thorn is detailed.
