#MangaMonday – ne0;lation by Mizuki Yoda and Tomohide Hirao

ne0;lation Vol 1 ne0;lation

Illustrator: Mizuki Yoda

Release Date: Dec 10, 2018 to Apr 27, 2019
Publisher: Shonen Jump
Rating:


Many manga come and go from the pages of Shonen Jump magazine. Some have decades long runs and become foundation works within the genre. Others find themselves canceled rather unceremoniously. At only 19 chapters, ne0;lation written by Tomohide Hirao and art by Mizuki Yoda is a manga that, I believe, was canceled too soon. What few reviews I’ve found on this newer addition to Shonen Jump rate it rather mediocrely – a manga that wasn’t terrible but didn’t keep their attention either.

Ruin’s Wake by Patrick Edwards

Synopsis via Goodreads:
A moving and powerful science fiction novel with themes of love, revenge, and identity. A story about humanity, and the universal search to find salvation in the face of insurmountable odds.

An old soldier in exile embarks on a desperate journey to find his dying son.  
A young woman trapped in an abusive marriage with a government official finds hope in an illicit love.  
A female scientist uncovers a mysterious technology that reveals that her world is more fragile than she believed.
  

Unification imagines a world ruled by a totalitarian government, where history has been erased and individual identity is replaced by the machinations of the state. As the characters try to save what they hold most dear – in one case a dying son, in the other secret love – their fates converge to a shared destiny.

Tune in tomorrow for our review!
