Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

It looks okay as a random SF movie, but it still looks passable at best as an adaptation. I will be always salty sad that they didn't drop those damn creepy bug eyes. Rosa Salazar would look even better as Alita without them. I kinda like the new date , though I doubt it will get released on Valenti...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 030 (part 2) Is out!

Thank you all for the chapter! (I should remember to thank for the translations more.) The reveal wasn't surprising, and I'm still not a fan of the general idea of Gally being a tumor. Also, for a bit of trivial nitpicking, I feel like "metus" is more "dread" or, well, "terror" than just "fear", so ...

Re: Second Trailer for the Movie

I've just read somewhere that Hugo is supposed to teach Alita the basics of motorball. Hrm. Um, well, I think it promises to be better than the manga , because story is made like one and not vol-by-vol. These newbies, sigh... I might be wrong, but I think they meant that the movie itself (or its cre...

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

Thanks for the chapter! Yeah, but why let people live when you can keep punching your readers right in the feels? It has become a bit too predictable by now, but most series equip plenty of their characters with rather thick plot armor, so it's still refreshing to read a series that usually doesn't.

Re: Saw the trailer in the theater today

There was another one about mobile cities attacking each other that looked all-CGI and no-humanity. No idea how the movie will turn out (I have my doubts, since Hester - the woman in the trailer and one of two main characters - is shown as being way less disfigured than she is in the books, and it ...

The random amalgam of the OVA and the manga makes me a bit afraid that this will be a second GitS, plus this... thing's... face... I have a very bad feeling about this. I mean, GitS was crappy, but at least Johansson looked like a normal humanoid with messed up hair. And to think that the teaser fro...

Johansson was miserably rejected, that argument convinced nobody.

Re: Others works/characters in fiction that might have some similarities to the ones in Gunnm

I doubt that the authors of Sillage (aka Wake) were inspired by Gunnm, but the main character, Nävis (aka Navee... ah, nothing like weird English translations), has always reminded me of Gally, what with being a black-haired, short woman who's an excellent fighter with a fiery temper and a lot of de...

I like Michelle Rodriguez (though I'm not sure if she fits the role of Gerda well) Another bad choice to add to the pile. For Gerda's role I would chose Emily Blunt for her performance in "Edge of Tomorrow", she is more like her. However how can they put Gerda in this? As I feared, they will fit to...

If the cast page on IMDb is to be believed, they are planning on not only cramming the first four volumes into the movie, but also some OVA-only material plus new characters. On the plus side, I like Michelle Rodriguez (though I'm not sure if she fits the role of Gerda well), we'll be getting a rath...

Re: looking to buy Alita last order

Okay, thanks. In the end I decided to buy a couple of volumes of the regular release. I like the covers too much to pass on them, and I wouldn't want to lug a volume of the omnibus edition around if I wanted to re-read LO while commuting to work.

Thread necromancy! (Why make a new thread when there's a relevant one?)

Also, how many regular volumes are in an omnibus one? F...

Last Order in Humble Bundle's manga bundle

Seems like the newest manga-themed bundle is comprised of Kodansha comics; among them is the first volume of the omnibus edition of Last Order. I'd be interested if it wasn't for the fact that with the current exchange rate paying $17 for a single digital volume is too damn much for me. The rest of ...
