YMMV / Bio-Meat: Nectar

  • Complete Monster: Jean Cloche at first seems to be a Funny Foreigner Cloud Cuckoolander that serves as a foil to his superior. Then, he's an Affably Evil Chessmaster who effortlessly manipulates a stupidly aggressive American general into helping him steal/take control of BM production using a terrorist attack as a pretext. However, when everything goes FUBAR, he leaves everyone high and dry, consciously and willingly dooming Kyushu (the only one of the four main islands that's not overrun by BM at that point). Later, it's revealed that he was behind the events leading to the previous outbreak, which resulted in the deaths of over 100 million people on the Japanese mainland. His reaction when confronted with this boils down to "You can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs" - always while keeping the same trademark bemused, smiling expression.
  • 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.
