All You Need Is Kill is a sci-fiction manga illustrated by Death Note artist Takeshi Obata, adapted from the original short novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka ( also used by Hollywood for the remake Edge Of Tomorrow ).
The premise behind the story/manga can best be described as a mix of Groundhog Day + Starship Troopers, and I enjoy both the manga and the film although they’re quite different in many ways. Takeshi Obata’s art work is excellent as always, with lots of detail in every panel of art work and beautifully rendered action sequences.
Even if you were not a fan of the Hollywood remake, the manga is still worth checking out because of Takeshi Obata’s beautiful art work. Recommended.
The edition I’ve reviewed above is the original Japanese 2 volume set – there is also a 2-in-1 English language edition available.
