Beyond the rather 70-80's style/feel of the characters is a deeper story realm. Terra e has an epic space opera sense to it, and it is, and yet it's not. The rules of space are acknowledged, circumfrenced, yet the plot is kept tight. First off, I'll say there is an anime based on the manga and the reviews are quite applicable to the manga as well, though the anime carries out the sequence of events and some of the characters a little differently.

The storyline follows the characters of Jomy and Keith, though initially the reader gets Soldier Blue's POV in the prologue.The pov is clearly read more

Cardboard characters, enough exposition to bash brains in, and a story only concerned with the semblance of depth more than saying anything at all. Earns good will from unique panel composition and presentation but it’s utterly wasted.

The first third of the story is dedicated to trying to Jomy Marcus Shin, one of our two main leads. We learn about his upbringing, the pristine nature of society, and the long standing conflict between those outcasted and the super computer that wants to uphold the status quo. But instead of being conveying characters and world via autonomy and cohesively, a majority of the run time is lambasted read more

I'm sorry; this manga isn't as incredible and revolutionary as you think it is.

Terra e... is certainly a promising manga, being a classic space opera written by one of the revolutionary Forty-Niners. I wouldn’t be lying if I said I was expecting a lot from it. However, many expectations weren’t met, and unlike Takemiya Keiko’s other works, this one went horribly wrong. And do keep in mind I am judging the original manga --not the anime.

The story begins about a millennium into the future, during a new time era known as Superior Dominance (S.D). Because humans had completely ruined Earth, they began using warp speed read more

Your Review:
This manga has a really intesting plot, very usual in 70s western sci-fi and i had yet to see it's presence in japanese works.

Somewhere in the 70s when ecological worries started to come up - ozone depletion, pollution, extintions, etc; the very prolific sci-fi community took these subjects and exacerbated them into apocalyptic proportions and came up with a solution. This solution took notions from the space race and computation:

Earth eventually becames inhabitable and the human race has to go into space and find new planets to colonize, it's also frequently present in these works of fiction a longing for Earth, even when adequate read more
