It is an age when large-scale natural disasters frequently happen all over the world. It is a time when cyborgs and autonomous robots are beginning to appear on the market in technologically advanced nations. Major world powers compete for technology and resources. The divide between rich and poor grows and the future for the poor looks bleak. In this transitional stage, everyone wanders around in a self-indulgent daze and the way out isn't clear... This is the story of how two cybernetically enhanced girls meet in such an era. Koukaku no Pandora is the new action packed manga series by Koshi Rikudo, based on an original story by Masamune Shirow.

Go go power lesbians!

The first volume and random samples of further material are just horrible and incomprehensible fetish porn which is somewhat expected as both creators only have good adaptations to their names with almost no quality own manga to speak of. I doubt if Masamune even bothered to write more than a few ideas on a napkin for this one but his original Appleseed (7/10) is a decent read i guess which he never bothered to finish btw.
Both mangaka are also HIGHLY prolific hentai artists and this is why the underage lesbian cyborg leads have to finger bang each other to activate their powers. Sigh.
Imagine the vastly underrated Real Drive (8,5/10) or the other Ghost, then take everything good out, overdesign all mechanical aspects and then finally make sure that the characters are thinner than a piece of paper.
Give them fetish clothes only on top and then you have this manga and the creators really shouldn´t wonder why they aren´t relevant anymore outside of porn or doujinshi.
Real cyberpunk manga would be Eden - It's an Endless World! (8/10), Gantz (8/10), Ghost in the Shell Arise - Nemuranai Me no Otoko Sleepless Eye (9,5/10), Gunslinger Girl (9/10) and somewhat RideBack (9/10) so stick to them. Or just look at porn but not at the trasy ones these people did and why is this shonen again.

I had high hopes when I saw Shirow's name, but this manga has average characters and an average story. The most interesting thing about it is the setting, but that alone isn't enough to make me want to read more of this. This manga reminds me of Chobits mixed with GitS, but isn't as good as either.
