Perhaps that involves using a biochemical mechanism of the tumour? That could lead to Alita being much more important than we thought before.

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

Well, what if the tumour's brain itself has slightly different properties from normal brains, thus making tumour brain so resilient. Also, could the study of the tumor's brain have in some way contributed to mathusalization?

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

Now I may be remembering this incorrectly, but in part 1 her brain surviving for hundreds of years was considered to be an unexplained surprise. So, could it be possible that the tumor properties of Gally's brain allowed it to survive as long as it did?

Thank you for the fast translation, team!
I agree with Pablolein. However,
Spoiler:
this makes me think if it is possible for Muster to be related to Desty Nova, perhaps Nova is a descendant of one of the tumors on Muster?

Re: Hugo in the movie?

Which is not the same as training her into it :D Well he might just show her the basics or something. Either that or they might make the remodeled Hugo live a little bit longer and help her out in the motorball stuff, only to die later (which IMO would be an inferior story to the one presented in t...

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

I just completed a playthrough of an old game- shin megami tensei 2, and couldn't help but notice the various similarities it had with part 1 of gunnm. Similarly, I felt like shin megami tensei 1 (the prequel) had an akira-like feeling in the story.

Re: Alita Battle Angel Film teaser poster

In an ideal gunnm live action movie series, the first movie should only tackle the first 2 volumes and should be about ~2 hours long. That gives the movie 2x the time that the OVA had for the same material, and would not feel very cluttered. Then again as far as the poster goes, it might just be bai...

Re: Alita Battle Angel Film teaser poster

Petty statement, looks like superhero cliché, far from Alita's true character. Not a good signal, will they try to sell the movie as just another superhero's? Yeah that is a definite concern. But what worries me more is how on earth will they fill 4 freaking volumes into 1 movie? I mean the first 4...

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

I was talking to someone about this and it seems that there are more similarities and connections gunnm might have with other works in fiction than I might have imagined before. Do you have any such similarities in mind? If so please feel free to share them in this thread. I'll start off with someth...

Just when you think that things can't get any worse for the characters, it gets even worse.

Re: Last order question

IMO, I think it would have been beneficial to cut out some unneeded parts of the tournament while keeping only the important matches intact. Like alita's team vs caerula's team being kept as it is, and keeping the final match intact as well. However, a lot of the matches in between didnt really seem...

Last order question

I think that most of up probably feel like Last Order didn't tap into all of its potential. If you think so, then what are some of the changes you would have made to the story to make it better from your point of view?

I dare say Kodansha USA's behavior does not make sense. The series has always sold well, to start with.

Interesting... this might go on for longer then expected then... looks like mars chronicle may go on for well over 100 chapters, and if the Bodhisattva theory is anywhere near true, then mars chronicle may go on for more than even 200 chapters.......
