YMMV / Bio-Meat: Nectar

  • Complete Monster: Jean Cloche is a silly-seeming but sinister man who manipulates a violent general to ensure he gets control over production of the world's food source in a time of mass starvation. When the titular monsters threaten the only Japanese island not overrun by them, Cloche engineers their invasion and flees. Responsible for the prior outbreak of the bio-meat creatures in Japan and the deaths of 100 million innocent civilians, when called out for his actions, Cloche shows nothing but smug indifference to his crimes.
  • Fridge Logic: The series' big weakness is in the huge number of bad decisions that made the B-M dangerous and keep them dangerous. Allowing for that, though, it's a fast-paced and riveting survival horror.
    • Given the pride and sociopathy of Dr Toujou, the creator and administrator of the biomeats, he might have resented any suggestions on improving his "perfect" creation. Since the world's food supply is dependent on his invention, the government officials did not step in to intervene lest he leave and take the secrets of biomeat creation to another country.
    • Its debatable how much can really be done about B-M's dangerous qualities. For the product to be effective, it needs to a) be able to eat almost anything, b) reproduce quickly, and c) be unaffected by disease or other issues that can kill regular cattle. Obviously the optimal solution would be to somehow make them not want to eat humans, but there isnt really anything that separates human tissue from other meat.
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: There's a high-tech facility in Japan involved in something potentially very dangerous but nonetheless indispensible to modern society. Then the facility is wrecked by an earthquake, causing an uncontrollable release of something very, very bad.
  • Idiot Plot: A rare dramatic example.
  • Ugly Cute: The Bio-Meat are actually kind of plump and cuddly with their flippers, especially compared to several hideously ugly human characters. Until you turn them over and see their mouths right on their undersides, that is.
