hopeful

from the summary and the tags, i thought it will be about hopeless, bleak, world as usual with futuristic setting, but it is actually full of hope, im pleasantly surprised. i do love the dark stories but it is great too to have futuristic manga that are optimistic. this is a good read. some people might not like it because there is not much drama or conflict, but i think it is commendable for this manga to restrain itself from going the usual 'science is EVIL' route and paint a better light of the future.

the art is pretty rough and the girls look like guys, but the unpolishedness is quite endearing in a way. try it!

Missed potential.

Scientia is a collection of short stories about a _successful_ utopia.
Sadly, the story wastes most of its potential by showing basically no moral conflict whatsoever, and by not taking its premises to their logical conclusions. [Tiny spoilers follow.]
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
For instance, one chapter is about affordable, rentable robots who learn from humans and become more human-like, yet none of the interesting questions are even touched upon (e.g. revolutionizing society; robots competing with/potentially totally replacing manual labor; robot rights, ...).

Also, c7 repeats the _utterly discredited_ urban legend that we only use a small portion of our brains. Seriously: if our ancestors hadn't needed to use their brains, evolution would have made their brains _smaller_.
Oh, and most damning of all,
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
c7 has protagonists use an intelligence-enhancing device to, OF ALL THINGS, make MUSIC. Not saving the world, not making money, no, they make music. WHAT THE HELL?

'Scientia' is the story's 'goddess of science', and this image is a great metaphor for the story itself: it praises science for making life convenient, but doesn't engage in any scientific virtues, like investigating the consequences of its premises, thinking deeply about problems, and so on.
Disappointing.

I really liked this manga, but at the same time that I was touched by the good of science and by the mensage, You have to work hard, i couldn't see the dark side o thechnology. I wonder if that is weird?
