Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

Yeah ... the CG face was absolutely due to a manga misconception. Cameron thought it would be cool because Anime. It is interesting to note that Zapan and Jashugan both have their actual faces ....surprised it didn't get a sexism strike for that. I really hope they start the next movie and it is the...

Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

So I got my Mars Chronicle 6 book yesterday so the Japanese is now only 1 episode ahead of the American publication?! That seems to be the shortest publishing lead yet ever? I hope the movie didn't derail him.I really like the Mars stuff so far...hard to believe there are 6 books so far. We'll see.

Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

The face looks like crap.

I think the movie is ok the way I think the first 2 books are ok. If we can get to Den it will be all awesome,

but until then it is ... it was ok. I am happy to see that it had broad appeal.

Re: Who is Dasein?

Tiger Sauer is another name. It's interesting that the center of Dasein power is his disciples. I think it is safe to assume at this point that Limeira is a necro soldier. I don't like Priesterin as a candidate just because we barely understand who/what she is. I guess that Mars Canopy was a nanotec...

Re: Who is Dasein?

Vares hiding on Mercury feels plausible. Mercury is the most remotest part of the Solar System that no one knows anything about. Maybe it harbors its father?

Re: Who is Dasein?

Zoey seemed inept, laughed at by Erica. I mean, to be the master of disaster, Necro Soldier creator ... it would be a stretch for Muster. Melchizedek is an option...something related to the origin of the Brain Bio Chip. THAT feels like a story he wants to tell, cutting off that last Nova in Tiphares...

Carula...Vampire woman...I suck at names.....tells Nanny cyborg lady that Dasein was laying low waiting for Mbadi to go away because only he could easily find necreo soldiers.

Re: Who is Dasein?

I think Veres overtook Mbadi and he is the big hidden baddy. It is a huge Universe but YK like Figure to bump into Sechs, Ido, Koyomi(twice), ... YK is ok with lots of coincidence. Maybe Veres drove Mbadi like a peacekeeper mind implant or something. Otherwise we don't get a lot of Mbadi going bad b...

Re: On the ending of Alita and the movie adaptations

I think we are in Pacific Rim movie math land. That first one shouldn't have gotten a sequel was the word. Alita's buzz is good, people like it, so fingers crossed. Maybe they can save some money and make the sequel with real girl's face...just be like.."O upgrade". I LOVED the original manga ending...

I thought the anime was whatever. I never liked book 1, but we had to start somewhere.

Manga Nova is an amazing villain(s). The secret of Tiphares and his role in that narration would be an all time AMAZING movie scene...God knows what BS they have in mind now.

It completely cuts the head off of Den and Koyomi's joining Barjack. THIEVES OF OUR SKY!!!! Yugo's lust for Tiphares; he is a victim of Tiphare's allure driven by the squalor of the Scrapyard. The scrapyard is fucking miserable is the point (and plenty realistic). We get the garbage society with no ...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel reviews

The kids playing motorball COMPLETELY shows the mistake of forcing motorball too soon and making the city waaaay too safe. Yugo just dies for no reason. He just wants to go to Zalem for the hell of it. I'm convinced he (James Cameron) read the first 4 books and was like; I got it I'm making a movie....

I'm a little disappointed in the Nova reveal/plot we got...a little MBadi, a lotta GIB inspector....I think he will ultimately be a prisoner of Zalem which hits the right notes.

Complaining about the plot is dumb...we'll see.

Yugo/Hugo died which I didn't think was going to happen...I see that as the most important note to end on.

I think Sechs is Zekka's best friend is part of the story. We'll probably never find out.
