Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 031 (part 2) Is out!

I didn't mind the Muster arc as a concept, but it would've been better if it was summarized into a single book. I mean, consider that this past arc was only maybe a couple months of Yoko's story at most, and yet it covers like 4 or 5 books... but the whole history of the Farrells, the family who bas...

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

Thank you all. Anticlimactic is what this chapter is. Here is the plain truth: Alita/Yoko/HK-BR035 is a mask tumor extracted from Nollin. I was hoping for something more sophisticated, like some DNA tweaking. After all, what would stop a mask tumor from developing mask tumors? Herr Ngema is no geni...

Re: Deluxe edition v5 will have

Re: Alita Battle Angel Movie Trailer!

I definitely wasn't expecting the eyes, but I've been waiting for this movie for 18 years and it's better than I dreamed it could be.

Re: Preferred story telling method.

I did wrote to Kishiro a few years ago asking who owned the English language rights to novelization of his series. So it's been in my mind for a while. I've also e-published several novels, so I've managed to complete works of reasonable length before. My Japanese is extremely poor, but I have work...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 025 (part 1) Is out!

oh Jesus But... would this imply that Muster (rather, Itall) is Yoko's "father", right? At least I presume that where all his "mandrake seed" was used for: a method to sort of stabilize Kagura's tumor? But then again... where did Yoko's brain come from? The tumors didn't come with their own brains, ...

Re: raw GLO114

With the way this substory is going, I wonder if postswipe-Ido will find the disc that preswipe-Ido made and will thus pull a Kryten (with all of his "erased" memories being unerased). But knowing Kishiro, I doubt thatll happen, and in reality, old Ido is truly dead and any relationship Ido has with...

Re: NEWS FLASH: KODANSHA LICENSES BAA:LO FOR NA

can we send money directly to kishiro and make those editors/distributors die of starvation ? that would solve all the problems for everyone at once :shock: An adroit suggestion, but... money talks, BS walks. Most importantly, we don't have a publisher with access to an (inter)national distribution...

Re: NEWS FLASH: KODANSHA LICENSES BAA:LO FOR NA

I'd hate to resurrect this old post, but I'd like to point out a few things. Several manga properties have since been transferred to the Kodansha Comics brand, particularly Akira and Ghost in the Shell; BAA:LO is not the first and certainly won't be the last series to be transferred like this. Howev...
