Nihei has been drawing comics professionally since the mid-1990s. In 1995 he was awarded the Jiro Taniguchi Special Prize in that year's Afternoon Four Seasons Award for his submission, Blame. After working as an assistant to veteran comic artist Takahashi Tsutomu's, Nihei went on to launch his debut series Blame! in Monthly Afternoon in 1997. Following the success of Blame!, he next penned Wolverine: Snikt! (published by Marvel Comics) and Biomega. In 2009, Nihei returned to Afternoon to launch what would become his most successful series, Knights of Sidonia. An architectural student, Nihei's early work were mainly wordless, relying on visuals and backgrounds to tell their stories. His cyberpunk-influenced artwork has gained a strong cult following overseas.

Q Hayashida was his assistant at one time.

Add Aposimz one-shot, please.

The 200,000 KM diameter artificial celestial body of APOSIMZ. Most of its volume is its core space, which is covered by a superstructural shell. Fifty centuries ago, the people who lost a war against the core lost their right to reside legitimately in APOSIMZ, and were left behind on the extremely cold surface. They face the spreading Frame disease and aggressive automatons which appear frequently on the ruins level. Yet even so, somehow people survive.

Officially published:
In english by Kodansha (Print version by Vertical)
In french by Glénat as "Aposimz la planète des marionnettes"
In italian by Panini Comics
In german by Manga Cult as "Aposimz - Land der Puppen"

Note: The oneshot was also translated by Kodansha

His works are mostly straight to action and always narrates itself without any proper explanation. Not that i'm complaining, but his style of writing can be confusing at times.
