The year is AD 2048. Japan is connected to the Eurasian continent by a transcontinental railroad. The capital, Tokyo, has become a crucible of criminals and terrorists. And so, in the metropolitan darkness a mysterious presence attacks and slaughters people, unnoticed, night after night… Just what are these “things that are not human” living in hiding in the human world? And just who is this “Origin” person who faces them?
This action packed manga has all the hallmarks of a Boichi. If you loved his worked in Terra Formars Gaiden: Asimov than be prepared for more of his lush artwork in Origin. The story itself is quite engaging. What happens when a robot tries to integrate itself into society, while battling those who won’t? As a bonus, if you like more of Boichi’s work, you might also want to check out his recently released Dr. Stone manga that he’s illustrating in collaboration with Riichiro Inagaki.
