Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Yes, you're quite right with "man of steel". When I saw it I even thought that this is what a dragon ball z movie would look like, fight scene wise!
The question now is: how fast do you think Gally is when fighting her first fight against Makaku?

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Well it's an anime. We're talking about a movie here. Even though they could make it enterily in CGI I doubt that this would be that easy or convincing enough if you do not put motion capture in it. I agree that I was expectinig faster movements and better choreography but visually increasing speed ...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Now that everyone is talking about precise adaptation of the manga for a movie/series/anime, I think the real question is why is that so important? Why someone (and even me I think) would want an adaptation so correct that it could replace the manga? I don't want something that replaces the manga, i...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

I honestly don't understand why you would want a sequel where Alita wants to go to Zalem when in the OG manga it was never a goal of hers in the first place and it involves a rewritten Nova. I don't see why you think in the sequel she might want to go to Zalem?? Well, yes vector is dead (strangly e...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

I wonder if Sergio would have liked the movie in the end. Good question. Other question is if we need another version of the story. For me the answer is "perhaps": I would like to see a new animation, specially because the first one was so poor. Alita's saga is too big to fit in a single movie. Not...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Finally saw the movie too. We are all hardcore fans, maybe others more than some but you clearly should take the movie as an adaptation to the manga even if there are a lot of materials included as is in the movie. You can take it as an interpretation of the manga. A different version of the story. ...

Manga origin with Yoko's lookalike

Don't remember if there was a topic about appearances of gunnm in other mangas but I found out that there's a Yoko lookalike (at least to me) in chapt. 74 of Origin (a very good manga btw, even if the plot is simple) Here's a link to what I mean: http://mangakakalot.com/chapter/origin/chapter_74 It ...

Wouldn't that be inefficient since the inks are already very detailed on paper? Strange. And yep his analog drawings were great, best was when he combined 3dcg with it during early LO.

That's just for the drafts. He then scans it and redraw digitally. I actually miss the good old times when it was only analog drawing. It was way more vivid IMO.

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 020 (part 1) Is out!

Personally, I think it's very likely that she was Maske Tumor grown from Kagura's body. If that's true, then that makes her of the same genetic stock of whatever Kagura is-- either Japanese or a mix of Japanese and German, is my guess. Well that's interesting. I thought engineered such as the Salem...

Great chapter I think, it's getting a bit more interest and development. Someone else thought about mathuzalization on this disk right?

I see a lot of people complaining (again!) about the length of this backstory. Well, if some of you have read the ars magna artbook (the recent one) he actually said that Mars chronicles is the part he wanted to include in last order but thought it might be too long. So he made it in an extra story ...

So, Mars Chronicles tome 1 is out in France. Ordered it, not received yet. The new edition of Gunnm is actually the first series, but in a new format, no direct translation of sfx, just footnoted which is actually the standard now, and the japanese sens of reading.

Maybe we should adopt a short name for Gunnm mars chronicles such as this brillant one: GMC :geek:
