My god, has it been a year already? I remember going into an existential panic when he went on hiatus for those several months during conflict with Shueshia. :lol:

Re: GLO 110 RAW

Maybe I'm alone in this, but I've never seen Mbadi as a combat figure, and that's exactly how I've always liked him. He's a scummy politician and hacker, rather than an insane combatant. Also, you'll notice how he took out that spec ops soldier without issue. Since he was under arrest for murdering ...

Re: Phase 108 Translation script

I'm actually from America, so it's interesting (and refreshing) to see someone who I don't think is a native speaker (Sergio) who has such a grasp on the language. A much better grasp than most native speakers, at that :P.

Re: Phase 108 Translation script

With regards to your correction on page 13 from "What did you just do" to "What have you just done," both are correct. However, the first one sounds less formal, and so I think that it would fit Zekka's personality much better to keep it as he originally had it. Also, your correction on page 20 is i...

Interesting that the explosion generated by Zekka's teleported arm was enough to make a light so bright that, from space, it was almost blinding to those on earth (under the smog of the Scrapyard, no less).

Re: Series nitpicks and inconsistencies

To assert that rape is never and can never be funny is childish like plugging one's ears with one's fingers and going "la la la la la not listening". Anything can be funny in the right context.

Anything.

Keep in mind that Elf and Zwolf were using TUNED bodies at the time, otherwise known as "Soft Machine" bodies. They seem to be made to be like human bodies in terms of consistency and form, so it's no surprise that a strike to the central nervous system common to humans would have a similar effect o...

Re: Raw of Gunnm: Another Stories/Gunnm: Gaiden

For larger files, I recommend using Megaupload in the future. A wait time of 45 seconds (20 if you register), no speed capping, max file size of 1gb. Really, people, stop with the other file hosts. Use mediafire if the file is under 100mb, and megaupload if it's over 100mb. Thank you for this, thoug...

Re: GLO 103

My vote is that first dead will be Rakan. Or maybe something will happen to make him snap back into being an actual human being again.

I honestly think that Mbadi's going to use the Sword of Damocles before the fight has a chance to end.

Have an Emergency Page

If the site were ever to go down for whatever reason (copyright disputes, host being an ass, etc.), it may be a good idea to just have a simple page on a free host where ^Ripper could basically just say "The Site is Doing Fine" or "We're Having Some Hosting Troubles".

As a biologist, let me clear up what moooV just said. In your DNA, there are repeating segments on the ends called telomeres. These are a safety mechanism in the DNA, because it is incapable of replicating the last few base pairs of each chromosome. These telomeres are basically sacrificial base pai...

I won't discount it, but I doubt that Colonel Payne had a role in Alita's past. It's possible that she simply associates people like him to terrible memories as a war child.
