Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

edit: i think it's time to take kamugin's advice to let it go :cheesygrin: I think Kishiro is fed up with his own manga due to the realization that he will have to draw it for the rest of his life if he really wants to tie up all loose threads. There are mangas running for over 40 years with no sig...

It is not a "realistic human-like look"
Remember that the main reason Cameron and Rodriguez choose the big eyes was to emphasize that Alita wasn't human, their Alita was a "doll" in many ways.

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

Her face is awesome. i've had a butthurt when i saw it in the first trailer but fell in love with it after watching whole movie. As many of those who watch it for 10+ times. Man, watching it over 10 times is brainwashing, my brain would become jelly if I tried that! Even my all time favorite movies...

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

I can only mention Brazilian sites as sources because I didn't research too much this subject, despite the relative low budget and the unexpected good grossings, the movie would have to pass the 500 million mark to actually earn profits and justify a sequel. From my side, I would like to see a simil...

Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

Nobody mentioned The Ravages of Time? It is also pretty long, with 550+ chapters and ongoing. Well, I started it few days ago, so I do not really know if quality is still there, but so far it is pretty great. So far I haven't read many manhua, they seem to lack something to my eyes. But I don't ref...

Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

Out of the ongoing ones, I'd say that the author of Houseki no Kuni as well as the authors of Mahoutsukai no Yome, Golden Kamuy or One Punch Man haven't lost their enthusiasm, so yeah, these are definitely worth reading. (Still haven't read Dorohedoro, though.) Those titles have barely started when...

Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

This sucks. Mangakas like Kishiro or Kentaro Miura (Berserk) that start lifetime long mangas and become lazy and uninterested as the years pass by are a pain in the ass. That’s why I prefer reading short to medium length mangas (Dorohedoro, Knights of Sidonia, Claymore) where the authors are able to...

Does she need more speed to look awesome? No, she already is! Well, I guess your standards for "awesome" are far below mine. In half an year I won't be able to remember most of the movie because it was too conventional. You have a problem with speed, ok. There are a lot of action scenes, at human l...

Nitpicking every single movement is way too much for me, it just doesn't worth the effort. To me, one of the most attractive sides of Gunnm is that Kishiro have huge knowledge of physics, technologies and martial arts, he uses all of these to make Gunnm one of the most scientific accurate mangas I k...

No way... I do not want Alita movie to be another unrealistic cartoon-styled ultrafast action with heroes, endowed with unnatural and magic-like abilities.

Also that power-level may also be risky for plot reasons. I mean, it would have been impossible to suspend the disbelief, that with such speed Panzer Kunst users were not able to take Nova.

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.
