Clockwork Planet
Volume 1


Clockwork Planet is an artificial celestial body created by the elusive and enigmatic clockwork master known as Y. He single-handedly rebuilt the Earth with nothing more than reams of data and gear parts, breathing life into a planet dead for a millennia.

Naota Miura is a not-so-ordinary high school student who possesses exceptionally acute hearing. His gift allows him to hear the turning of even the smallest gears on the planet. He is obsessed with clockwork, so he spends his days toying with gears, making him an outcast at school.

One day, while Naoto is in the shower, a large container suddenly crashes into his apartment. Inside it, he discovers a beautifully preserved automaton by the name of RyuZU, and decides to repair her. Little does Naoto know that this encounter with RyuZU will turn the gears of fate, forever changing the course of humanity.

tl;dr: A mixed bag of a manga with a unique world but equally strong and weak aspects in terms of plot and characters.

Clockwork Planet is a manga that has a really interesting setting. It’s essentially a futuristic steampunk world. Steampunk is something that often has somewhat of a renaissance flare to it. It extends past that well enough I suppose, but even then, I would say only really as far as victorian. Clockwork Planet is one that basically has modern society with all its amenities, cars, cell phones, televisions, etc. but it’s functioning solely on the basis of gears. In terms of the science, it ...

Preliminary (12/51 eps)
Wow, Wow and possibly another WOW. That's my opinion of Clockwork Planet.
So why do i think that? (Keep in mind i don't review often so please don't be too criticizing)

I Found Clockwork Planet whilst mindlessly clicking through manga sites and am i glad i did, i suspect nobody would like to read big blocks of text so i'l keep it short.

Now as of the time of this review only 12 chapters have came out but wow the story is quite intriguing, writing any more may be classed as spoilers but i am very excited to see how it plays out.

Unless it's very obvious i ...
