Re: Evil Ted's Alita costume build

They are canon. It's from the very early when she began regaining her panzer künstler identity and did the markings instinctually herself with blood/oil.

Re: Apparently Cameron has three candidates for the lead role in Alita: Battle Angel...

I doubt we'll see the actress "in flesh" much. Usually if she's not moving in superhuman speed, she's in pieces.

Re: reflection on volume 1

MrFaber, you sure do hate context and backstory, don't you? All of your posts are basically about how you do not wish to know more than a sketchy description of how Yoko came to be Alita.

Re: Aren't we getting a bit too much Dragon-ballish?

Gunnm was always supposed to be a seinen manga. I can´t imagine YK being happy about turning the series into shonen... I suspect having one of the enemies being a penis the size of a bus was an attempt to get the studio annull his contract. I found it deliciously bittersweet when Kishiro disowned th...

Re: reflection on volume 1

I believe the story arc about Colonel Payne and the infant infantry was supposed to be a lot longer (after some substantial build-up and and a rallying speech by Alita, the entire subplot was concluded within a few pages with a simple "oh, the final flag already, go us") and the Mars orphanage massa...

Re: Some thoughts on the ZOTT arc

While the ZOTT was mentioned as early as in volume 3, there was another big fight going on in Ketheres already; Combat Training. It was supposed to be a big deal and for which there was quite a bit of build-up, with Alita becoming more and more aware of her childhood, Colonel Payne as the sadistic c...

Re: Any news yet about phase 120?

I have a hunch the DNA Organ will have a *significant* part in the finale. I wonder though, how the chip-tuned Alita will resolve the slight case of cognitive dissonance of being a copy of herself.

The end of volume 4 might give even more insight to the workings behind the scene; Alita's inner monologue before the ZOTT was like this: "Aspire to reach heights I was unable to attain..." I'm not sure this is what Jashugan had in mind. Gelda gave me her fighting spirit. Jashugan taught me the valu...

Re: Some thoughts on the ZOTT arc

My thoughts exactly. The whole strectched-out ZOTT garbage really seemed like management driven episode, and the whole reader-submitted characters was a perfect indicator Kishiro was NOT in charge of the story. The plethora of non-consequential characters was pure shonen manga style. The fights betw...

Speaking of the Weasel, remember too that his plan was to use the ZOTT as cover to sneak into Melchizedek and find Lou's brain. And this would not have happened successfully without getting the Fata Morgana, which was given to Alita by Caerula during their match – I think that is at least one redee...

There were absolutely no redeeming qualities in any of the ZOTT arc episodes. None. Besides how absurdly long the ZOTT arc is, which I have already admited... my long-ass post from before seems to contradict your statement. Let's consider this for a bit: half of the things you said to be great abou...

ZOTT garbage began 7 years ago, but Weasel was around for some time after that ;) When you think about it, the characters had to be busier than electric rabbits on speed, but what could've been exciting, action packed sequence was spread over seven years of tedium. The only good thing Shueisha seems...

Re: How much does Alita weigh?

Interestingly enough, if you built her with titanium alloy skeleton and silicon-based cells with silicone as elastomer for the soft tissue, you'd end up at around 60 kg, assuming she's a bit under 150cm tall. Using tungsten alloy for the skeleton would increase her mass up to 80kg. Replacing half of...
