In a post-apocalyptic world, humans, robots and cyborgs live in the Scrapyard - a landscape of twisted, rusted junk made up of the garbage sent from the above city of Zalem. In this place, the inventor Ido finds a partially-destroyed cyborg amidst the rubble, gives her a new body and names her Gally. With no memory of her past and an instinctual ability to use a powerful martial art known as the Panzer Kunst, Gally matures and relearns life's lessons while she travels the broken landscape, struggles to remember who she is and where she came from, and discovers the mysteries of Zalem.
Once again, I rec these two manga based on the world around them. Both are futuristic post-apocalyptic settings with horrifying imagery. If you like that sort of backdrop give these two manga a try.
Franken Fran, creation of the absent Professor Madaraki, has a true gift when it comes to the scalpel: she can give you the perfect body, bring the dead to life or stitch people together so that they will never again be apart. Join Fran and her boy-headed cat as they learn about the human soul while carving up the human flesh. But ethics aside, can something beautiful come out of such ugly work, or is it doomed to remain ugly until the end? On the other hand, does it matter?
Nudity, zombies, and clones!
Franken Fran and Hallucinations from the Womb are collections of stories whose implications are often disturbing and/or satirical. Both tend to feature body horror, light philosophising, and strong elements of science fiction.
