Ahhh... KnI. If YKK is a gentle apocalypse, KnI is a soft, subtle, twisting of the brain.

Things like Utena rip it out of your skull and shove it into a pasta mill at high speed. KnI is put together so gently that you barely notice that at some point your brain has been gently teased out of your nostrils, used to skin a kline bottle, and re-inserted, just as gently.

Nice to see you getting back to this series -- I had thought you had abandoned it.

I think the image of Mt. Fuji that appears in chapter 15 is one of the most impressive pieces of minimalist manga artwork I've ever seen.

The question of the extent of the atmosphere makes me think of the unusually large insects of the Permian, and an alternate history of Earth where a denser atmosphere with a higher partial pressure of oxygen allowed larger insects, and in which the end-Permian extinction was due to Earth losing 90% or so of its atmosphere in some hilariously unlikely catastrophe.

This is clearly a "physics, shmysics" sort of setting.

In fact, if all of Earth's dimensions are multiplied by 10, then presumably so is the radius...and surface gravity, given constant density, scales linearly with the radius. Oops.

I don't think this is really any kind of spoiler, by the way, but I'll ROT13 just in case:

But see The Surface-Gravity Plateau. (Multiplying everything by 10 gets you past the plateau, though, if I'm reading correctly.)
