Review by ElizaJane
DNF - This book does not have page numbers but I managed to read 3/7 chapters. I was wary going in as I had problems with Vol. 1 but the story was intriguing enough for me to give Vol. 2 a try. Surprisingly enough, I had different problems this time around. After writing my review on Volume one I was contacted by fans of the author and told that he is well-known for his stark, wordless mangas with minimal text, and from that I knew I was probably reading the wrong guy as I like words. So when I started to read Vol. 2 I was surprised at the amount of text. Not as much as normal but way more than in Vol. 1 and this was a level of text and art I could get along with. My problem this time was I got completely lost with the story. I have a very bare bones idea as to the story line but this volume was just getting me more and more muddled. The art is gorgeous though. But I'm just going to have to say that this is not an author for me. But if you are a manga fan who enjoys futuristic stories with lots of zombie violence and motorcycle action, plus enjoys stretches of wordless panels this could be right up your alley!
Review by ivan.frade
I loved the Nihei's Blame! series because of its incredible setting, an endless megastructure where the character roamed finding more and more spectacular places and creatures.Although Biomega has similar style, the architecture is not so important, story confusing and fights feel repetitive and pointless. It didn't catch my attention and I wasn't able to finish the 3rd book...
