In a future one hundred million years away, after history has ended, myths have returned to life and giants stride across the land. Also wandering this world are Delos the wrestler and his odd partner Prome. Their mission brings them deep into an inhospitable desert where they make contact with the Scarabaei, a race of scarab people.

However, the Scarabaei have long suffered at the hands of a human empire encroaching on their lands, an empire they assume the very human Delos and his companion are part of. Forcing Delos to stand for the Empire's crimes, he is thrust into an arena with the Scarabaei's champion fighter Ogun. With his life on the line, Delos must not only confront this formidable warrior, but also the feelings of a whole tribe. Justice, pride, and survival hang in the balance.

There are many references to Greek mythology throughout the story including its title which is based on the "Gigantomachy."

Kentaro Miura originally planned Giganto Makhia as a commemorative project for the 20th anniversary of the Young Animal magazine, although it wasn't published until a few years after the milestone.

This is Kentaro Miura's first original project in 24 years, since he began Berserk.

Ah, Giganto Makhia. Kentaro Miura's first original work in over two decades and ultimate proof that he did not spend his year of Berserk hiatus just lazing around, like so many people seem to accuse him of. The man obviously needed a creative break and created this very short seven chapter manga in the meantime. And you know what? Did a damn fine job with it, too.

Giganto Makhia is a science fiction story set a hundred million years in the future, though to be honest it feels more like a fantasy story, as you wont find any advanced technology or other elements that read more

It has been proved by the popularity of, for example, Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan), that stories that usually contain giants make a lot of success. In fact, since ancient Greece, legends of giants always caused curiosity and instant rapport. My story with Giganto Makhia started like that as well.

Kentaro Miura decided to write this one-shot during the hiatus of his best-known manga Bersek, probably to clear his mind, since Bersek is being written since 1989! The story itself mixture Greek mythology with something like a futuristic mode and post-apocalyptic - or as stated in the manga: after the Great Extinction. And if giants read more

This is the story of when Miura attempted to mimic Western political correctness as cringeworth as you can imagine an atempt like this can be. Besides all the positive reviews which I believe are based on just being fan of Miura's work (more specifically, Berserk), there are plenty of issues in this manga that need to be adressed.

There is no story to be qualified, it's a political NPC commentary in manga format sumed with some strange form of Buddhist morality. A human warrior and a kind of android loli who follows him are captured by an humanoid tribe (Blacks are some bugs) who suffer from read more

Fun, but barren. There's clearly a lot to the world of Giganto Makhia, but due to it's limiting 7 chapters, it's unfortunate to see that a lot of this world is left to the imagination.

For a more explicit response to the narrative, it's actually pretty interesting and the characters themselves are all quite engaging. I didn't feel as though anyone was a forced character, and the comedy within it, although strange, is quite enjoyable. There's not a lot to respond to, and the narrative feels unfinished, so I can't help but feel cheated upon finishing the final chapter.

Miura is fantastic. The only issue is that read more
