Abstract: We observed the nearby low-metal galaxies IC 5152 (lacking active star formation) and I Zw 36 (a blue compact) in the [C II] 158 micron fine-structure emission with ISO/LWS. The observed ratios are not so large as that in Magellanic type of galaxies. This indicates that large [C II]/CO (J = 1--0) flux ratios observed in the Magellanic types are also due to factors other than metallicity. We expect that more massive galaxies in early epoch have interstellar medium similar to that in blue compacts rather than in Magellanic types.
