Blame! (ブラム! Buramu!) is a cyberpunk manga written and illustrated by Tsutomu Nihei. The series follows Killy, a seemingly human individual wielding a powerful gun, as he journeys through a vast futuristic labyrinth known as the City in search of Net Terminal Genes. Along the way, he encounters a wide variety of allies and enemies.

This was Nihei's very first series, and was followed up with a prequel, an unfinished sequel, and a few spin-offs.
