You need this

In my 300 volumes of manga, and about as many hours of anime that I have in my collection, this is my favorite item. The series itself is absurdly good, artwork and story both 10/10. Great for people who haven't read manga before, or for those who've read everything. Comedy, Romance, Drama, Action- whatever you're into, this will appeal to you; it's one of the rare works that is truly universal.

Now for the physical details, which this also excels in. When I look for an omnibus, I expect: bigger pages to see more detail in the art, some bonus color pages of artwork or cool info in the back, a distinguished binding that makes it set with grandeur on the shelf, and thanks to Planetes I also expect them to feel like a brick. That's right, despite being a paperback it's solid enough it could probably beat Chuck Norris in a fight. I assume that means they used higher quality paper, but mostly I just like that I can feel my manliness rise by about 40% by merely touching it.

An excellent addition to your library.

Planetes is a classic manga from the excellent Yukimura-sensei, who is also known for his ongoing Vinland Saga series. Join Makoto as he documents the fun times, the sad times, the mundane times, and the absurd times of the space-junk crew aboard the ship DS-12 "Toy Box". The omnibus comes in a slightly larger format compared to most manga (e.g. the shonen/shoujo Viz trims) and in higher quality paper. Each volume is prefaced with 2 or 3 colour pages.

If you are one for a mature and understated character study, then this is the manga for you.

Great art and story

by -

This is one of the best manga I've read. As an omnibus, I really liked that it included some color pages at the beginning of each of the select chapters. Great read for people looking for a manga about space with slice of life.

Fantastic!

by -

No matter how much anime you've watched, how many manga you've read. You will not only enjoy this, but you will be surprised as to how good it is. Trust me when I say.. You will not be disappointed, just make sure you grab vol. 2 while you're at it.

one of the best I have read

by -

I am just recently getting seriously into manga and this, and 20th century boys, have served as the two shining examples of smart, well done manga. This is one of the most emotionally mature, scientifically interesting, and beautifully drawn comics I have ever read. I am waiting for the second to come asap.

Planetes Vol 1

by -

I've only read this first volume so far, but it doesn't feel like just set-up. This is the first half of what seems like is going to be an awesome story with great characters. If you like Makoto Yukimura's other work Vinland Saga, this will be right up your alley, although less action-heavy.

5 star rating out of 5

amazing

by

great manga series slice of life yet has action and a deep connection with characters
the books is an omnibus yet is not to thick for the spine or for comfort it is just the right size in my opinion unlike other dark horse omnibus

4 star rating out of 5

Great book, great content

by -

I picked this up because I enjoyed the Vinland Saga anime, and it is by the same creator. It is distinctly different from VS, but is amazing in its own way. While it is not the greatest thing ever, I am enjoying it a lot, and definitely will read volume two.
The book itself is very nice, the cover has a nice smooth feel to it. It is larger than other dark horse books I have, which are smaller than a standard single volume. This book though, is fairly larger than a standard volume. Despite being big, it doesn't feel too big to hold comfortably while reading. There are colored pages at the beginning of each chapter as well, which look great.

Great product, and great content :)
