Re: GLO 112 raw

Right. So what I'm getting at here is: translation is messy, go with what works. :)

Re: GLO 112 raw

Hard to argue the correct S/Z spelling of Jerusalem in the first place, since in Hebrew it's "Yerushalayim."

Re: GLO 112 raw

I think it was spelled Zalem (ザレム), but given that the whole gag is that it's splitting up the word "Jerusalem," I can't imagine them translating it as Zalem. Although who knows.

Re: GLO 112 raw

And for the record, in English, Tiphares/Ketheres Elyion are much better names than Jeru and Salem. The latter is just a shitty split-up of Jerusalem, not to mention the fact that Salem is the name of a famous town in the American northeast where witches were burnt to death several hundred years ago...

Re: GLO 112 raw

Would like to point out that the burnt out ruins they visit in the rain in the middle of the chapter is the ruins of the Heng (the massive train-gun that Tiphares/Jeru shot down and then sent AR11 to destroy). This chapter does take place 11 months prior to where we are in the story now. The old dud...

Oh, and if you want me to post any of your images on the Japanese Yukitopia forums and/or translate and pass some note to the Kishiros, PM and let me know. I think they'd get a kick out of it.

He also said that there is no correlation between the TV series Dark Angel and his Battle Angel project, thus ending years of idle speculation on my part.

Re: Cameron's Upcoming Projects aka Gunnm's film

I asked James Cameron about Battle Angel, point blank, on Tuesday. He came to my work for a Q&A (I work at DreamWorks Animation). He said he dearly loved the Alita character, still wants to do it, and Motorball is in the drafts he has right now. That said, he didn't know what movie he was doing next...

Re: James Cameron- Avatar (Alita related)

To be clear: I should've said it was not popular, as opposed to unpopular. There is a distinction. People don't actively dislike it, but they don't actively like it either. Gunnm is published in the Ultra Jump anthology, which is a monthly magazine that mostly aims at an older male audience. Some of...

Hi there. I'm the former translator that was quoted a couple posts ago. A couple things: 1) Avatar and BAA have nothing to do with each other. I work professionally as a computer graphics artist, and was offered a job on Avatar (and the Hobbit), which I turned down. I know a lot of people who have w...

Quick, spot-translation of general vibe: - Toji realizes his ambitions of a Karate Planet were frivolous and empty, comes to see Earth as beautiful. - ZOTT is being delayed to repair damages, and Mbadi is up to something.

So far, Alita's fate hasn't been touched on, and it's been around 4 issues, I think. It's mostly been Zekka/Sechs/Toji shenanigans.

Tsutomu Kishiro emphasizes it will be EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to obtain one of these. You'd need to preorder at a specialty shop in Tokyo. Only 3000 will be made.

And he says the body design is a special-made one for the figurine, and bears no connection to the comic.

Not on sale, even pre-order, yet. They say it'll happen sometime this fall.

It, I think, is included with a special edition of several Gunnm Gaiden stories, including Bashaku Ondo.
