In the distant technological future, civilization has reached its ultimate Net-based form. An "infection" in the past caused the automated systems to spiral out of order, resulting in a multi-leveled city structure that replicates itself infinitely in all directions. Now humanity has lost access to the city's controls, and is hunted down and purged by the defense system known as the Safeguard. In a tiny corner of the city, a little enclave known as the Electro-Fishers is facing eventual extinction, trapped between the threat of the Safeguard and dwindling food supplies. A girl named Zuru goes on a journey to find food for her village, only to inadvertently cause doom when an observation tower senses her and summons a Safeguard pack to eliminate the threat. With her companions dead and all escape routes blocked, the only thing that can save her now is the sudden arrival of Kiri the Wanderer, on his quest for the Net Terminal Genes, the key to restoring order to the world.

Decent entry point for Nihei's Blame! universe
Huh! From where to start about this one? I am a huuuuge fan of Blame! manga. It's the best manga I ever read and I always present it as a reference point to something different, original, breathtaking and ultimately enjoyable. Though, not so much for mainstream audience. What about the anime? There must be two points of view in reviewing it. Why? Because First one from a perspective of someone who read the manga and second one from a perspective of a first timer who hasn't got a clue about original material. As someone who read the manga I was expecting the full story with deep development of main character(s) and much better representation of vast areas of Megastructure and everything else what can be found in it. What did I get? A spin off story of a small village in Megastructure with characters which are almost irrelevant in the original story. We didn't get to see a lot of characters, Silicon beings are missing, it's even hard to tell that Killy is main character, not the villagers. Many, many details missing not to mention that original story is spread through huge time period. I would lie if I would say that I didn't enjoy it. It's solid SciFi anime if you don't take into consideration the original work. As for second point of view, for someone who never read the manga.... Watch it. Maybe there will be sequels/prequels. Maybe even pushes you toward reading manga. It's a great slice of Blame! universe where much more can be told in future movies (hopefully there will be more) ***sorry for a bit fragmented review, this is my first ;)
Fresh, New, Metallic Gloom around each and every corner
Blame! throws us into an unknown far-future post-apocalyptic setting that's unlike most post-apocalyptic settings we're used to. Natural formations like land, sea, sky, plants, and rocks are completely non-existent and what we are left with is a colossal, cavernous, metaled mess of a megastructure. Any adjective with the basic meaning of "large" that I could have chosen to describe this structure should be seen as an understatement since - according to the manga from which this film is based on - the megastructure itself, which initially started on Earth, now extends past the orbit of Jupiter. The massive labyrinth interior of the megastructure is created and maintained by "Builders" (giant skeletal, mechanized creatures who slowly roam around)and to us humans, their design theory can probably be best summed up as ordered chaos gone amok. The viewer is overwhelmed with scene after scene of grand metal-type architecture. One can't wait to see what fresh, new, metallic gloomy backdrop is waiting around each and every corner. The animation used to depict this cold and miscalculated world is phenomenal. Based on this reason and the given "nature" of the setting, any viewer who is attracted to films because of their dark atmospheres should give this one a try. Not to say the story is dull by any means. Plot elements include a tribe that's on the brink of destruction who question whether they are the only humans left, hyper robots with spider-like bodies and ultra-artificial human faces who eliminate humans upon detection, a wandering protagonist with a synthetic body and a super gun, a female engineer sidekick with Netsphere (cyberspace)insight and the ability to transfer her consciousness into reanimated forms, and that's just to name a few. This is a sci-fi nerd's wet dream. Some might criticize the protagonist's quiet and shadowy attitude, but I suppose it fits since who knows how long he has been wandering around for. Maybe thousands of years? I found myself longing to know more about his own history, the sights he'd seen, and the experiences he'd had along the way. My own point of criticism would be the children characters' "coming of age" story whose names, faces, and personalities seem to all run together. Their part in the film should probably be included, but maybe with a little less focus and their characters a little more distinguished. One warning I give to the potential viewer is there are some sci-fi concepts in the film which are unexplained and rely wholly upon the audience's familiarity with sci-fi in general. Some examples of these concepts are transhumanism and theoretical replication technology. Have fun watching Blame!. I thought it was a blast!
I haven't read the comic series and I have gone through some of your negative comments. I just watched this movie and I must say it was pretty awesome! The environment in which it was set was mind-blowing and very creative, the plot seemed pretty good and it left me wanting to see more. All in all I can say that, if your not a die hard fan of the comics, you'll probably enjoy this movie!
i love it
POLYGON Studio continues to amazed us with its wonderful CGI pictures. the Director Hiroyuki Seshita did a good job, he moved the image well from the source. I think the story still have more beautiful things, but this doesn't prevent us from enjoying this good movies. Now i'am going to read the manga to discover the whole story. . So enjoy it
Solid sci-fi, visually stunning and good story.
I suppose after the gigantic Netflix logo spins around on the screen, announcing yet another copycat production, the expectations drop considerably. Fortunately but it seems (I didn't bother to check) like Netflix just signed the cheque to purchase the title, I doubt they could have much to do with this movie. Firstly, it's anime made by the Japanese in Japanese language and everything about it is Japanese, it feels way more genuine than Appleseed. The story was excellent and the visuals were absolutely stunning, I think that's why I'm giving it 7 stars. Otherwise it wasn't a masterpiece but still very solid and enjoyable. The characters were a little bit flat, for example they don't seem to be bothered much when dozens of men and children get ripped to shreds or lose limbs, they all mostly stare at the camera with their fakely large eyes. But well, it's mostly an action anime, so there isn't much time to develop any depth. So yes, there is a lot of shooting, running, action but the balance is right - there is also a lot of suspense, story, sci-fi, dreamy cityscapes, exoskeletons, cyborgs, monsters and heroes. However, it's far away from the American superhero movies with happy ending, the overall mood is gloomy, post apocalyptic and the ending is more of a "walk into the mist" rather than "drive into the sunset" which I personally like.
