NOiSE(ノイズ,Noizu?) is a one volume manga created by Tsutomu Nihei as a prequel to his ten-volume work, Blame!. Noise offers some information concerning the Megastructure's origins and initial size, as well as the origins of Silicon life. The book also includes Blame, a one-shot prototype for Blame!, which originally debuted in 1995.
This story portrays Susono Musubi, a young police officer in a post-apocalyptic subterranean city that's thriving with activity, who is investigating recent child abductions. She finds a heavily toned down, sword-like Gravitational Beam Emitter as well as other elements that take different forms in the later publication (for example, Silicon life).
