The science-fiction war action story revolves around Objects — the powerful, massive weapons that change the course of warfare — and Elite Object pilots. An odd Elite girl named Milinda meets Quenser, a student who aims to become a Object mechanic, with the soldier-in-training Heivia on a snowy battlefield.
WARNING: Short manga, pretty long review. :PHeavy Object is a nice little manga to read. Nice because it has got interesting (main) characters, action and an overall good-looking art. Nice, but not great, and that's because the protagonists' enemies are what one would call flat characters: they're cruel, ugly and obviously evil. No clever character design here, pretty much of a shame I think, but maybe the author did not want to make it too complicated. Anyway, I think you'll enjoy the main characters. They're human and experience a perceptible development. However, they're often predictable too. It's a nice little manga because there is only one volume. That's actually a shame, too - there's tons of unused material here. I actually was surprised that there is only one volume because the setting is very interesting - considering it's such a short manga. (Maybe there'll be coming more one day...?)If you like action, that's fine. There's a lot of it in the manga. The action scenes are pretty energetic and not dumb at all. In my eyes, these were the best parts of the manga.However, better don't expect Heavy Object to be too serious about the war scenario. It's not boldly violent and there are humourous parts in it, too. The protagonists are teens and there are moments they're near to loosing their lives but keep joking anyway. I personally didn't care too much about that as it's obviously not meant to be a serious manga anyway. And some parts really made me laugh - got to admit, that's not too much of a difficult thing to do. But give it a try, and maybe you'll enjoy it too. I gave it an overall rating 7. That was a pretty tough decision - it's damn close to an 8. But as nobody likes flat characters (or do you?) and the manga's story did not suprise at any point, I think the 7 is justified.I hope this review woke some interest in the manga and thank you very much for reading.gakusei
