Volumes 2 Written by Tsutomu Nihei
It is easier to follow the plot than ‘BLAME!’, because Abara’s story is fairly simplistic, the man saves the world typical plot.
I honesty like it as much as ‘Blame!’ and a lot more than his other works like ‘Biomega’ or ‘NOiSE’.
Abara means “ribs” in Japanese.
Abara is set in a dystopian world, filled with large structures. The story revolves around creatures known as Gaunas, those who can shape bone like armor and weaponry around themselves by transforming. The transformation begins around the spine and then shapes layered armor. The story focuses on one such Gauna known as Kudou Denji, though he uses Itou Denji as a fake name earlier. The battle sequences are street-fighting; based with a mix of the macabre weapons, and superhuman strength/speed.(Quote : wikipedia)
What we have here are a guy in black and a something in white who are compelled to beat out of each other while destroying everything around them.
With the short 2 volumes, The author weaves its subplots into its simplistic plot adding flavor to it. On one hand this series has amazing artwork, it’s just quite awesome, but 2 volumes are not good enough for the plot. If you like his art, still I highly recommend it.
