Summary: Rygart Arrow is one in a million - he is an `unsorcerer`, one of the few people completely lacking the ability to use the quartz stones used as an energy source for everything in this world. This status has made him an outcast and an object of scorn, leaving him unable to work machinery, fire a gun, or even light a lamp without aid. His father had desperate hopes that sending him to a military academy might awaken some power in him after all, but no such miracle occured. Rygart has since since become a farmer on the isolated outskirts of the Country of Krisna - but the friends he made while he was there, and the loyalty he has towards them, is about to change everything. Two of them now sit on the country`s throne, and when they summon him to the capital he discovers just how sheltered his life has been - Krisna is in danger, war is about to break out, and the conditions for surrender put forward by their enemies are impossible to meet. An elite unit of enemy troops is already launching attacks on the capital - an elite unit led by their old friend Zess. What is Rygart supposed to do when his inability to use quartz leaves him utterly useless in the face of the battle that looms ahead? When he stumbles into a powerful and ancient mecha that the quartz-wielding people of Krisna have been unable to use, he may just have found a way to stand amongst them... but when his friends are on opposite sides, where does that truly leave him?

Summary: Outer space, the far future. A lone seed ship, the Sidonia, plies the void, ten centuries since the obliteration of the solar system. The massive, nearly indestructible, yet barely sentient alien life forms that destroyed humanity`s home world continue to pose an existential threat. Nagate Tanikaze has only known life in the vessel`s bowels deep below the sparkling strata where humans have achieved photosynthesis and new genders. Not long after he emerges from the Underground, however, the youth is bequeathed a treasured legacy by the spaceship`s coolheaded female captain. Meticulously drawn, peppered with clipped humor, but also unusually attentive to plot and structure for the international cult favorite, Knights of Sidonia may be Tsutomu Nihei`s most accessible work to date even as it hits notes of tragic grandeur as a hopeless struggle for survival unfolds.

Summary: The rules of alchemy state that to gain something, one must lose something of equal value. Alchemy is the process of taking apart and reconstructing an object into a different entity, with the rules of alchemy to govern this procedure. However, there exists an object that can bring any alchemist above these rules, the object known as the Philosopher`s Stone. The young Edward Elric is a particularly talented alchemist who through an accident years back lost his younger brother Alphonse and one of his legs. Sacrificing one of his arms as well, he used alchemy to bind his brother`s soul to a suit of armor. This lead to the beginning of their journey to restore their bodies, in search for the legendary Philosopher`s Stone.
