Description

Appleseed, Book 2: Prometheus Unbound. But, book 3 was dull, Dunan transformed from bad ass soldier to something of a stereotype, the romance subplot was unexplored, and the action was hard to follow.

Appleseed, Book 2: Prometheus Unbound. All this was through a pretty rough translation that dedicated entire chapters to fictional politics and philosophical musings. Book 3 was a bit of a chore to finish. Hoping book 4 is a little better.

Book 3 of 4 in Appleseed (4 Book Series). Even if Masamune Shirow is more widely known for creating Ghost in the Shell, it is for his magnum opus Appleseed that he became known as a master comics storyteller. And it's easy to see why. The fiction world that Appleseed takes place in-a near-future, post-WWIII utopia-is exquisitely crafted and detailed. Into this new utopia come Deunan Knute, a nomad street-smart soldier, and her cyborg partner, Briareos. This book moves at a leisurely pace as we are introduced to the characters and their new home on the island of Olympus.

Very Good condition, spine not cracked, just sitting on the shelf. From Ghost In The Shell creator SHIROW MASAMUNE, comes Appleseed, the epic cyberpunk vision that inspire the widely popular animated film.

Plenty of cyberpunk action, lots of exposition via fanservice, not so much connection to the larger-scale plot laid out in the first two volumes.

Ummmmmm, it's the third volume of the Appleseed saga. Very good story, right in the middle of Shirow-san's Appleseed powers, in my opinion. Lush art and an enticing and enthralling (for it's subject matter) story line. The format is well done, though I wish slightly larger as I think the art could use the room. I have the the other volumes from the Eclipse 1st Ed and the difference in size is quite noticeable. But, the price was right so....

World War Three is over. Nuclear weapons were not used, but just about everything else was. Old nations have died out and new powers have replaced them. A nomad soldier, Deunan Knute, and her cyborg partner, Briareos, have been taken from the ruins, out of the wastes, to utopia. A utopia called Olympus, the central city of the new Earth.
Yet, even utopia has power struggles. Will mankind be changed and became something better IF nonhuman or embrace total peace at the cost of his spirit? Or will it all be destroyed again by uncontrolled emotions such as hate and greed?
Or will mankind be able to find a way, a path that combines it all? Shirow is the best artist to help us ask the question and maybe the only one who can help us answer it.

Books 1 and 2 were great. They had an interesting and driving plot. But, book 3 was dull, Dunan transformed from bad ass soldier to something of a stereotype, the romance subplot was unexplored, and the action was hard to follow. All this was through a pretty rough translation that dedicated entire chapters to fictional politics and philosophical musings. 1 and 2 were gems. Book 3 was a bit of a chore to finish. Hoping book 4 is a little better.

I have always loved Masamune's books, world, and characters. While the story is basically strait forward the artwork is beautiful and the concept fascinating. For those who haven't read any of these this series is about a post appocalyps (world war/faction wars) utopia, and two characters trying to fit in after having lived in war torn lands for a long time.

I enjoy the Appleseed series, but I feel in comparison to GitS, Dominion, and Orion it is a bit dry.
