The first two volumes were a bit tough to follow. This one was completely impenetrable. Shirow's dialogue bombards the reader with facts, and it's very difficult to sort out what's world-building background info, and what's directly relevant to the story. Whatever thread supposedly tied one chapter to the next was completely lost on me, and I'm not an unintelligent person. In the book's favor, Shirow's mecha designs and action sequences were top-notch as usual; it's a very cool looking book. But ...more
With as much as I love the first two books, three just feels like it's a different story. It's still all of the great Appleseed artwork, and it's filled to brimming with Shirow's style, the story just wasn't as good.
Dans ce troisième tome, Briareos et Dunan se retrouvent mêlés à de l'espionnage international (ce qui a priori est sympa), ainsi qu'à une sombre affaire d'affichage de supériorité diplomatique (ce que je trouve toujours très laid).
Les landmates sont jolis (ainsi que les filles), et l'histoire raisonnablement intelligente. Du coup, ben c'est toujours aussi bien.

Appleseed Book 3 is a hell of a ride. Enjoy militaria? Fall in love easily with strong women? Like to see an artist just as he's hitting his stride? Look no further.
The story continues, expanding the cast and the atmosphere of the world. A good sci-fi read.
Too many identical-looking robot suits!
