Clockwork Planet, Vol. 1

The new hit sci-fi manga from the creator of No Game, No Life!

AS THE WORLD TURNS

Naoto is a brilliant amateur mechanic who spends his days tinkering with gears and inventions. And his world is a playground—a massive, intricate machine. But his quiet life is disrupted when a box containing an automaton in the shape of a girl crashes into his home. Could this be an omen of a breakdown in Naoto’s delicate clockwork planet? And is this his chance to become a hero?

  • Ian Ryan

    I enjoy the general premise of the manga, and the art style (particularly of RyuZU) was interesting, but as other people have pointed out there was a couple of pieces of unnecessary fan service, which...
