Re: New Deluxe Hardcover

It can be a thinner hardcover. The novel wasn't written by Kishiro and would likely cause confusion, + there's the movie novelization on the way.

Re: Has anyone seen any artist alley

I'll see what's represented at FanimeCon in a few weeks. Artists tend to stock what will sell, so if there is more hype around Battle Angel and if it gets popular enough, maybe. On a related note, as popular as Girls und Panzer is, I didn't come across the 1st AA print until last year at Fanime. I h...

Re: c2e2 baa deluxe boxset nov

Knew it would be worth waiting for this.

The movie's reschedule actually works for Kodansha since the entire manga will have been republished by the time of the December release.

Re: Deluxe edition v5 will have

I end up rebuying what I got years ago. :cry: Makes sense though, I don't think Ashen Victor as a standalone story works as well without the tie in to the main series. Another tie in that would make sense to include is the Iron Fist doujin that YK came out with featuring the character basis for Ido ...

Gally sketch by Artgerm

Comic cover artist Artgerm did a Gally sketch today. I tried to grab it when it went on his store later in the day - Had it in my cart, but someone beat me to paying for it. Full pic is below.

Re: Movie delayed

I don't mind the delay as long as it's for the better. It also helps Fox that Solo is coming out in May vs. December, when the last 3 Star Wars movies were released.

For the non-mainstream merch (GNs, DVD) there is ebay and Yahoo Japan Auctions for OOP or Japanese merch. If you are trying for cels or the production drawings, I haven't really seen those on Yahoo Japan Auctions. A couple cel dealers have them, but keep in mind that the OVA is only 2 eps, so there ...

But I actually did buy 1-3 of the Last Order Omnibuses because of the 1 shots by Kishiro being included and to see the changes Kodansha made in the translation.

Re: Alita: Battle Angel tie-in merch

As I heard, Novels of the New trilogy of Star Wars are more detailed versions of movies. So, that is pretty good news, I guess. And I stalked her GoodReads account... she has no Gunnm manga there. Buying the prequel novel would be cheaper than the manga reissues and more in sync with the movie. I r...

Re: Battle Angel Alita Mars Chronicle volume 1 out now

So much Gunnm being released by Kodansha this year, I'm not sure where to start lol. I think Kodansha was waiting for some interest to build around the series before publishing Mars Chronicle - They could have done it earlier, but with the pending movie release there is now momentum around the origi...

Spoiler:
I was half serious when I mentioned the chip idea, but knowing the timeline is good. Another idea I have is that the punch is a reflexive action. Of course we need to see how far gone Giratin really is and if he still comes back fighting despite half of his brain (presumably) being shot.

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 027 (part 1) Is out!

I was inactive for a year, so maybe someone commented on it already. But did anyone notice how close Das's gun looks to Vash's from Trigun? I think YK used the latter as a basis, obviously changing some elements. https://i.imgur.com/tPwUKyw.png http://www.imfdb.org/images/thumb/e/ed/Trigun0106.jpg/5...
