    Deunan and Briareos continue to struggle with life in utopia despite being in a relationship. A rogue bioroid is on the loose and tensions are running high in Aegis. As Deunan and Briareos see life in Olympus isn't all it's cracked up to be, relations between the humans and bioroids continue to deteriorate. I have a feeling Arugess is going to wind up being the big bad in the final volume. I'm glad Deunan and Briareos are finally together. The art continues to amaze me, from the cityscapes to the Deunan and Briareos continue to struggle with life in utopia despite being in a relationship.

The art continues to amaze me, from the cityscapes to the mech designs. The auto-bugs remind me of the Invid from the third Robotech series. I found the art much easier to follow than in earlier volumes. The feeling that things were lost in translation continues. While it was action packed, this was my least favorite volume of the series so far. The action scenes were great and I like the characters but I've officially lost track of the story beyond Deunan and Briareos being together and Artemis being some kind of wolf-human hybrid bioroid. Three out of five stars.

    The first two volumes were a bit tough to follow. This one was completely impenetrable. Shirow's dialogue bombards the reader with facts, and it's very difficult to sort out what's world-building background info, and what's directly relevant to the story. Whatever thread supposedly tied one chapter to the next was completely lost on me, and I'm not an unintelligent person. In the book's favor, Shirow's mecha designs and action sequences were top-notch as usual; it's a very cool looking book. But The first two volumes were a bit tough to follow.

But it would have been nice to be able to put some context to those action scenes, and to understand what was at stake in the larger story. Maybe it was just a translation issue, but I spent most of this book scratching my head, trying to figure out what was going on.

    With as much as I love the first two books, three just feels like it's a different story. It's still all of the great Appleseed artwork, and it's filled to brimming with Shirow's style, the story just wasn't as good.

    Robotic armored exo-skeletons replaced by extensive nudity and uninteresting non-mechanized police gear. I understand form fitting costumes and outfits (though only appreciate them up to a certain limit), but pausing the action for ten pages for a sauna scene is ridiculous. I had been reading the westernized volumes before this more faithful translation- it's right-to-left now. The oddest part was that sound effects weren't translated (because art outside of word balloons is sacrosanct?).

Also the pages are now smaller, overall I prefer the earlier english editions and would only want to re-read this in that format.

    More political intrigue and a hunt for a feral creature are the bulk of this issue. I also enjoyed the sweetness between the two main leads.

    Out of all the Appleseed manga as well as the movies this one is pretty much where I wished Masamune Shirow would go with. Given the tactical nature of my stories and the emphasis on tactical or even special forces operations Operation Benandanti is what I consider one of the best story-tactical missions in existence at least in my mind. The whole execution from Olympus to France has pretty much inspired me to write good tactical stories as a whole, and the political, and military, and even soci Out of all the Appleseed manga as well as the movies this one is pretty much where I wished Masamune Shirow would go with. Given the tactical nature of my stories and the emphasis on tactical or even special forces operations Operation Benandanti is what I consider one of the best story-tactical missions in existence at least in my mind. The whole execution from Olympus to France has pretty much inspired me to write good tactical stories as a whole, and the political, and military, and even social aspects of it still shines in my mind today and further enhances and makes him want to expand more on the WWIII aspect of the storyline. The book isn't just about Benandanti but overall has some other elements in play regarding Yoshino and the interaction of Olympus and Poseidon, which is featured in Appleseed: Ex Machina and Yoshino is just one of those mysterious characters that's brought along for whatever reason (as well as we find out Arugess is part of the Poseidon power play as well) for the mission but overall shows the other side of ESWAT and how they do more missions around the world vs. the situations that are brought up solely in Olympus. So I'd highly recommend this book, even over Book 4, which carried it's weight, but as a former Soldier the tactical missions is what interests me more.

    We have two subplots playing at the same time here, and while they're both good on their own, they don't work all that well together. In fact, they may as well have been separated into their own respective volumes. One involves Deunan and Briareos chasing a flesh-eating bioroid named Artemis, who's escaped into Olympus. The other deals with the pair joining an op team to perform a 'drug bust', which turns out to be much more than that... The artwork is yet again an improvement over the previous v We have two subplots playing at the same time here, and while they're both good on their own, they don't work all that well together.

I noticed a little more attention to detail this time around, although the grander-scale action sequences can still be confusing at times. It's an interesting read, but I'm a bit torn on whether or not I like this new story arc better than the previous one. At least it keeps moving.

    Dans ce troisième tome, Briareos et Dunan se retrouvent mêlés à de l'espionnage international (ce qui a priori est sympa), ainsi qu'à une sombre affaire d'affichage de supériorité diplomatique (ce que je trouve toujours très laid). Les landmates sont jolis (ainsi que les filles), et l'histoire raisonnablement intelligente. Du coup, ben c'est toujours aussi bien.

    estuvo muy entretenido y lleno de información está entrega. Pero la sentí que el autor no supo jugar bien con el personaje de Artemis y la operación fuera de Olímpica dejó mucho que desear sí quería ir más allá de hacerla notar como algo cuestionable.

    Appleseed Book 3 is a hell of a ride. Enjoy militaria? Fall in love easily with strong women? Like to see an artist just as he's hitting his stride? Look no further.

    This volume, as a collection of mostly unrelated vignettes or short stories, was much less interesting and compelling than the previous two volumes. 2.5 stars.
