The Colony

I just watched this trailer by chance and it totally looks like they ripped off Arthur's back story. Earth is in a constant winter, few survivors live in underground shelters. Of course there are no vampires--only lunatics that want to kill everyone, yeah... 3XLJxwdm6kw Ok, influences are omnipresen...

Figure Four

Hm, it seems we have some free time now that the scanlation got taken from us :-/ So why not try to talk a little. About Figure, I honestly always thought there is more to him. He survived the onslaught of the Bar Jack unscratched (back in vol. 6), also this "mere human" could fight on par with cybo...

Re: True skin

Interesting video. All those short films are much more visionary than current scifi movies. Here's another one (totally unrelated though). I recently read Peter F. hamilton's Commonwealth-Saga in which much of the things from the first video are incorporated. There, people have small chips in their ...

Re: Why is it called GUNNM?

That was it, thanks. When I first read it back in the days I was amazed that at first he didn't really know what Tiphares is/going to be. The whole story of Ketheres and Arthur he later constructed around this "scrapyard with a sky city" feels so logical as if he had it all in his mind from the begi...

Re: Why is it called GUNNM?

I don't know about the english BAA edition but my german edition contains a 2 page afterword by Kishiro, and the respective part says: "Alita" directly derives from the designs of "Rain Maker", a longer, completed story. In the final version of this story, Alita appears as a side character. Mister T...

Re: Alita Glossary -> Gone WIKI :)

Thanks! :) Very cool. I've read the new entries, here are my suggestions: You could also add: - "exo arms" (Zazie vs. Rakan) - "Rat slaying the cat" - Tojis finishing move on Alita, v16, page 35 And maybe edit: - "Europa" (vol. 11, page 104 indicates that it's a farming-planet or something... ) - "U...

Re: Artistic influence in BAA

Has someone read (or watched ) "The Inhabited Island" ("Обитаемый остров")? The movie (of the 1969 novel) is either called by that name or "Dark Planet" or "Prisoners of Power". Maybe not an influence, but they have mind-controlling devices there, a little like the unanimous-system. I'm thinking abo...

If you liked Planetes or even more 2001 Nights , you will most likely like the graphic novel The Forever War . It's a novel by Joe Haldeman that was adapted into a comic in the 80s.

Re: Alita Glossary -> Gone WIKI :)

Oh, "Rennausrüstung" is also nice, true. Though of course "Wett-" in sports isn't necessarily connected to betting. Maybe our term originated from sports as a betting event? Don't know ;)

@ Menath: It's as always just a guess but I think that Hertza Haeon means "Hertz erhöhen" (to increase Hertz).

Easteregg

Actually I'm in the wrong thread but it's not enough to open a new one I guess. Or are there more eastereggs to find in BAA/GLO? Back when Zazie got the ticket to go help Alita in the ZOTT, there was a QR-code on it. http://img7.imagebanana.com/img/6g4ov069/thumb/img005.jpg - http://img6.imagebanana...

Re: Phase 106 translation script

Changes edited into the OP. Does anyone have the correct spelling for "Weisserschauss"? Or did I miraculously guess it right from the katakana? I can't think of anything familiar to Weisserschauss. Is it the little katakana on page 24, "oisa-shiyuto-su"? It sounds as if it could be "Äußer Stoß". If...

I just now realized that in the original picture, Alita has quite big boobs and a big head, compared to her body. At first, your version was strange to look at but I quickly came to like this more realistic view... Man, I can't wait for the turntable version :shock:
