GANTZ – 奥 浩哉 Hiroya Oku (2)

The second scene is from volume  36. It’s another existentialist moment where some Gantz players/warriors encounter ‘the Truth’ a statuesque, super intelligent being. They are encouraged to ask questions.

The scene is remarkable for the design of two the Truth figures. The inside of the figure is constantly shapeshifting; heads of creatures and alien races emerge and morph into in/famous humans (Ghandi, Betthoven, Hitler; but also Bill Gates if I’m correct and scientist Stephen Hawking). Is it to make the cryptic statements more accessible for humans to understand?

again, Japanese reading direction.

KNIGHTS OF SIDONIA – シドニアの騎士 Season 1

A nice adaption of Tsutomu Nihei’s manga. Knights of Sidonia is an existential military narrative, close to Space: Above and Beyond and Battlestar Galactica.

The few thousand surviving humans live on a massive ship named Sidonia. See the sketch below how Sidonia is structured.
