That summarizes most of the plot… but leaving out the incredibly gruesome bits.
In a world not too dissimilar to ours, Japan suffers from two major calamities. One of them is the lack of space. Due the island’s geography, there’s little room to store trash as landfills are reaching maximum capacity. The second problem is food and the lack of it. However, bio-engineers suddenly made a breakthrough that changed everything.

B-M (Biomeat) creature
By creating an animal that consumes disposable waste and serves as a food source, both problems are solved. However, despite the utopian world that the Biomeat or B-M’s made, there lies a hidden threat.
Engineered to consume more and reproduce quickly, B-Ms optimize food production and saves space. However, what if such creatures have no qualms about feasting on human flesh?
As the outbreak unfolded, a small group of children watched as their entire city was overrun and literally devoured by the creatures they’re supposed to call food.
Fighting for their survival, they find out that the world is imperfect and what’s “right” may not be so evident.

Make no mistake about it. This is very gory and many characters will die off right after they’re introduced. If you think all the good guys live, you’ll be wrong. So, for those faint of heart or unwilling to delve into the horrors of science, stay away. However, if you are unfazed by blood and desiring of a good series that might give nightmares, Biomeat – Nectar is the one for you.
But I shouldn’t put too much emphasis on the gore. The plot is very good and if I imagine the scenario playing out in the real world, what happens in the manga may not seem too far fetched. The artwork is good, not spectacular but the topic requires little to start with. Definitely a good manga to read and one of my top favorites.
You eat it. It eats you.
