Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Keiko Takemiya was one of the first female shojo manga writers, and has achieved great success with her science fiction and yaoi (boy-boy love) works. Andromeda Stories is a fantasy tale that invokes The Matrix and The Dark Crystal. It examines themes of man versus machine, and the inescapable grip of destiny.

Synopsis:

Cosmoralia's Prince Ithaca is about to wed Princess Lilia of Ayodoya and be crowned Astralta III. The apparently favorable celestial bearings mean he will be no mere monarch but holy king of a new "papacy". Alas, the peaceful inhabitants of Planet Astria have no clue that they're next in line for invasion by a ruthless machine force--a threat that seems to metaphorize the inherent perils of politics and desire in this multilayered saga. The tension slowly mounts to an unbearable pitch in this ominous first volume of three.

Following the conclusion of her award-winning and epochal To Terra..., Keiko Takemiya paired up with science fiction legend Ryu Mitsuse to create yet another milestone that was shortly made into an animated TV feature. Andromeda Stories is comics pioneer Takemiya's second work to appear in English.

Synopsis:

Invoking such classic works as "The Dark Crystal" and "The Neverending Story," this fantasy tale is set in a world where machines have infiltrated a peaceful empire. As machines consume the once-peaceful Cosmorian Empire, the only hope lies in royal twin siblings, who were separated at birth.
