7 Billion Needles Manga Review: Scifi-Thriller

 Hey guys! It's Liz (crispy) here with a review on 7 Billion Needles :D

7 Billion Needles is about a girl named Hikaru Takabe.  She is not very social and is often misunderstood by her classmates.  Hikaru always wears her headphones to block out the world around her.  She isn't a part of the crowd, but one day, she is wandering on the beach during a school trip by herself, and a star crashes on her.  That 'star' was a celestial being that now lives off of her body, like a parasite, rather.  He, the celestial being, sends her messages through her headphones, as if she's hearing voices.  He tells her that there is another celestial being that crashed to earth that is evil, named Maelstrom.  So, Hikaru is dragged into an intergalactic battle of 'cat and mouse'. 
 7 billion needles is gathered into our volumes total.  This is personally one of the best sci-fi reads I have ever read, and I would recommend it to any scifi-horror fan!  This series was actually based off of the book, Needle, by Hal Clement.  I am currently going on volume 3, which is released on February 15, 2011.  I have read the first two volumes, and boy, are they awesome!! :D
