Summary

Summary

In his follow up from the hit Biomega series, Tsutomu Nihei tackles the world of hard science-fiction by creating a modern space comedy inspired by the genre hits from his youth. Nagate Tanikaze was a homeless teen living in the depths of a space colony with a passion for simulation games and stealing rice. Now he is the lead fighter pilot, protecting said space colony from a race of shape-shifting space giants! A science-fiction tour de force which combines post-apocalyptic action, modern sci-fi video game tropes and a traditional Japanese aesthetic.
