From Masumune Shirow(creator of APPLESEED)comes this special "filler" story to the original DOMINION: TANK POLICE video series. This manga happens inbetween the two parts of the OVA, namely eps. 2 & 3. Here, it is the not too far off future where Earth is covered by a bacteria cloud that forces everyone to wear gas masks while outdoors. In this hostile enviroment, crimes are commonplace, and to fight this is the Tank Police. They're your average special forces task squad that patrol the streets in large tanks. Except one tank in particular is custom-made and compact, Bonaparte. This is piloted by the tomboy Leona and her would be boyfriend Al. They usually have their hands full with the criminal/activist cyborg Buaka and his catgirl playmates: Annapuma and Unapuma. Their capturing of the synthetic lifeform, Greenpeace, may be the only hope humanity has of lifting the bacteria cloud. But Buaka plans on heading for outer space to live life on a new colony. Can Leona and her squad stop them? Will the chief ever stop yelling "BRENTEN"? See Shirow's masterwork in action to find out.
P.S. This little baby is actually a prelude into the GHOST IN THE SHELL manga. No kidding!

This may be heresy, but I think this is by far the strongest actual *story* by Shirow. His other works--Ghost in the Shell, Appleseed, among others--are beautifully illustrated, but get bogged down in technical arcana. This book is much more straightforward. The art is still gorgeous (especially the 8 or so color pages at the start), so this book scores on all counts. The core of the story is police using tanks to hunt a criminal. The subplots give the book its charm, with a host of characters (particularly the lovestruck meter maids) zipping about on their cleverly-interwoven agendas. Also, for those who haven't read the original Dominion story, Shirow notes that he wants readers to think of Dominion Conflict as entirely separate. This book is entirely worth special ordering, as it is wonderful and almost impossible to find.

This is actually the second volume of the Dominion Tank Police, but it is a different universe from the first Dominion volume. Sergeant Leona Ozaki is not as air-headed as the first story. She is a real Cop who likes tanks! This volume is more of a Police Procedural story in th action adventure genre with plenty of comedy element as only Shirow Masamune, artist & writer can pull off! Great classic that was written about 1994. It holds up well and is an entertaining read!

This old school Classic magnate h at still holds up thanks to the genius and art of Shirow Masmune! Wacky police procedure with tanks grown in for good measure. Shows the pressures real police deal with everyday. Dirty politicians, muck raking journalists, flaky citizens, and so on. Entertaining read!

Masamune Shirow is one of the best manga authors working in the business today: he's funny, intelligent, and draws detailed artwork that will make your eyes scream in orgiastic ecstasy. That being said, however, I approached "Dominion: Conflict" with some trepidation at first and even held off on buying it for a good while after reading the original "Dominion". Why? Well, my experience with Shirow doing sequels had not been very good before; I read and enjoyed the original "Ghost in the Shell" but when the time came to read the sequel I was disappointed. "Ghost in the Shell 2: Panty-Crotch Interface" saw Shirow completely giving over to his excesses: lots of gratuitous panty shots (ala "Agent Aika"), lots of word-dense philosophizing (ala the original but taken to a ridiculous extreme) and an ultra-dense plot that was impossible to untangle and made my head explode (ala "Scanners"). Thus, I must confess that I was only able to make it halfway through that manga and that I could not finish it... so you can see why I would be wary of another Shirow Sequel.

I'm glad to say that I was proven wrong. In fact I'm very glad I gave this book a shot because this is one of Shirow's best manga ever, and possibly his funniest. How does it compare with the original? Well, the story - about the Tank Police's efforts to catch a notorious air pirate and uncover his connections to an evil arms corporation - is fairly standard and not as good or thoughtful as the original's (on the plus side though it's not as dense - in fact this just might also be the *lightest* Shirow manga in existence). Actually, this story might not even be a sequel per se to the original as the setting is very different.

Dominion: Conflict 1 (No More Noise) is not Dominion : Tank Police. In Conflict all the tanks are mini, the bad guy flies a plane (because the air is nice and clean) and the Puma sisters are now COPS! Jealous meter maids, corrupt officials and a tank design competition. Will mini-tanks be replaced?
The fact is this book is set in a universe totally different from the DVDs and the other manga. Extras include the fact files in the back, plus lots of scenes with the Puma sisters. They're easy to make happy, just give them candy or food, and they can sleep anywhere. Anna can even change her size (but I prefer her in her adult, shapely, size). Uni, on the other hand, seems more serious about the job.
