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.

Biomega is the second prequel to Blame! and is the story of how the world in Blame! became shrouded by the Megastructure.

Together with Knights of Sydonia this is the better manga of Tsutomu Nihei.

[Spoiler Warning]

tl;dr: A manga that’s mostly just really boring with a plot that makes little sense.

Biomega is a manga that largely just doesn’t work. The plot is the tried and true plot line that involves an Earth that is essentially undergoing a virus induced zombie apocalypse where the protagonist is part of a group searching for those immune to the virus in order to protect them in order to preserve humanity, with another faction basically trying to use the ongoing apocalypse to reshape the world and humanity to their purposes. However, it’s told really badly in a really scattershot manner that makes it really hard to ...
