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.) Currently I am reading Narutaru (Shado...

Re: Polish deluxe edition of GUNNM

Good to know about this one. We need more mangas translated in Polish. Not everyone knows Japanese. Haha, definitely! It's nice to see more and more great or even just decent classics being picked up by the Polish publishers, though IMHO there are still noticeable omissions when it comes to both ol...

Re: Manga origin with Yoko's lookalike

Boichi is skilled, but I don't think his style is very similar to Kishiro's. Kishiro's female characters have more varied faces and they don't have huge foreheads that would make them look like sufferers of hydrocephalus. (Not saying that Origin wasn't somewhat interesting, especially if one ignores...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

<r>Also finally saw it the other day.<br/> <br/> It's... surprisingly okay. I like that it departs pretty early from the manga, as there is less to be irked about, and it's even easier to see it as a dumbed down alternate story - and in that context it kinda works. It's also very impressive visuals-...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 032 (part 2) Is out!

No, I didn't like Jim Roscoe and his friends nor the fight with Sachumodo. I prefer the setup of the discarded original ending, like when Alita destroys the suicide machine and how Lou was careless about the brain chip swap of the Thiphareans (I didn't like Lou's death). I found the new setup a bit...

Wooo, finally~! Thank you very much!

Yet another chapter that I liked reading more than most of the previous Mars Chronicle ones. Unye is kinda... cute? I wish she'd ease off with all the licking, though. And for some reason I really like her hairpin!

If I were to describe Gunnm (as in, Gunnm/LO/etc) in a shamefully quick 'n dirty way, I'd probably say something along the lines of "the duplicates paradox being explored in a cyberpunk/SF setting; also, you'd be surprised just how much character development can be done while people are trying to ki...

To be honest, I didn't notice the eyes at all. I actually preferred the original eyes before they reduced them. They really made her look different. The way they ended up she didn't look all that different from other people. The only time I really noticed the eyes was in the flashbacks with Gelda. ...

The question must have been asked, but where is the damascus blade ? What's this sword ? It dont look like panzer kunst ! This movie is kinda scary to me.
