Description
On the planet of Hekiou, there is a continuing war between the first wave of immigrants and the second. An important section of the military uses a native creature, the Niebass, to give its soldiers translocation abilities. These soldiers are all women, with the alien creature transplanted into their wombs. Some people see this practice as a violation of human women by aliens, and Mana Oga's boyfriend has a similar perspective on the matter. Mana Oga is a new soldier in this section, and the story follows her and the other women in her group who accept the alien creatures into their wombs in order to defend their homes.

Note: Won Nihon SF Taisho Award in 2016. Was nominated for Seiun Award in 2017.

I'd advice reading it slowly, and re-reading after each volumes. The mangaka will NOT hold your hand and explain stuff over and over.

Characters are awesome, the theme is awesome, the story progression is awesome.

Doesn't follow the usual manga tropes, which is a plus for me!

I haven't put too much attention to the plot, so even when I'm around volume three I cannot tell the very small details, BUT seemed disgusting at first, from the sinopsis I thought 'ridiculous', 'feminist attempt' and similar things; truth be told is far better than I'd imagined,female point of view without the 'feminine' part, action very nice, 3D characters, not direct or annoying feminist arguments that I could catch, actually it's very interesting how the author places females as an important tool for war, not because of gender equality but because they're far more useful than males in this scenario. Might be polemic, but give it a try, plot is creative at the very least.
