REVIEW: Clockwork Planet (Vol #1) by Yuu Kamiya

Do you guys also love No Game, No Life (the amine or manga)? Well Clockwork Planet is a six volume manga written by the same author! I’m a fanย ๐Ÿค—

no game no life



Naoto’s a high school dropout and brilliant amateur tinkerer. He lives in a world that has been so over-exploited that the entire surface has become one vast machine. When a box crashes into his home containing a female automaton, it’s a harbinger of change that will rock the entire globe, and give Naoto his chance to be a hero.


I received this book in LootCrate Amine, so I had no idea what it was about when I picked it up – all I knew was that the cover was gorgeous! I was pleasantly surprised when I dove into the pages ๐Ÿ™‚

First off, the illustrations were beautiful. There were a handful of small atmospheric or zoomed-in images that I couldn’t decipher, but nothing that really hindered my reading experience. Kuro has such a talent as Ryuzu and Marie are both drawn so beautifully and intricately but with this overall sense of simplicity that I love.

As for the story – it’s getting good. I was initially apprehensive about the story line but once I hit around page 50 things really started to pick up. The scale of the story grew, more characters were introduced, and the stakes were raised. This volume really ends in a place that you can’t stop reading at — I would highly recommend having the next volume on hand for when you finish this one!

Raise your hand if you like the sci-fi genre, automatons, and evil governments. You guy’s should pick this up!

Rating 4.5/5 Stars


Let me know if you’ve read the rest of the series yet, I’d love to know what you think of it!
