Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Well, if the prequel novel is anything to go by, he's just a tin-plated dictator. They talk about the twelve flying cities, and how only one survived the Mars attack, and how the people of that city wanted the stability and strength of a firm, purposeful leader. It's real finger-down-throat stuff. ...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

Regarding Nova: I think he could still end up being extremely faithful to the manga. I'm still not convinced he was ever actually interested in getting a hold of her heart. Nova's primary motivation in the manga is to identify individuals with deep karma and test them. He's not afraid to lie and man...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel reviews

Ah -- clever! Using Echo's built-in voice recognition and synthesizer. I was thinking along the lines of an interactive radio play, for PC, but that does seem like a more versatile approach. I haven't got an Echo, though, so while I'd be interested in looking at your code if you're willing to share ...

I thought it was incredibly faithful to the manga, and where changes were made, I felt they were either appropriate and necessary for the medium or actually improved the story. Cameron and Rodriguez have a ton of content to pack into t...

On the ending of Alita and the movie adaptations

I first read the manga back in the late 90s/early 2000s, and I could never understand why Kishiro wasn't satisfied with the way it ended -- until I bought the box set edition recently and discovered that he'd originally ended it merely by blowing up Alita.

Re: Most current Alpha version of the ISO

Hi, even as a long-time fan of the manga I didn't know there had ever been a game made. Stumbled upon it today, and subsequently your translation project. With the release of the film, you might start seeing a lot more interest in this, so I hope the project is still going forward!
