Gally likes them young.

A little thing i noticed. The guys Gally "dated" where both younger then her. And i'm not referring to the obvius 207 years she have been hybernated in the scrapyard before Ido revived her. According to the timeline Yoko was "born" in 370 ES. Operation Maulwurf was in 386, so Yoko was 16 old when sh...

Re: One thing that bothers me about the ZOT final

Zekka would have had. And at this point he had joined the Space Karate team. He was just so overpowered that he won the match basically throwing Toji against Anomaly.

Re: One thing that bothers me about the ZOT final

I was explaining Gunnm to someone [...] what is it about? Well, actually, the main theme of Gunnm is the definition/research of the human persona. What is the qualifying characteristics of the "i"? What is a human behing in the end? And it explores that through different, progressive, scenarios. Is...

Re: One thing that bothers me about the ZOT final

A different answer from others but I'm guessing Alita is in a lot of pressure due to the high stakes of the tournament as she needs to win it, to prevent the tiphare redevelopment act, and win the independence of tiphare and the scrapyard as to be recognised as a commonwealth if Alita won so she ha...

Re: One thing that bothers me about the ZOT final

Now that you mention it, another really odd thing about that arc is that Gally LITERALLY behaves like a cat. She sleeps around in high places, she sneaks into places getting through holes, she even walks on the four occasionally. From the first fight with Makaku the story introduces the hypotesis th...

Re: One thing that bothers me about the ZOT final

Very good points! I still think anyway that Gally had no reason to kill Toji while he was already downes and with arms severed (even if still conscious he would have admitted defeat or he would have been easely been further damaged). It was plain cold blood murder, which Gally despised in several oc...

Re: So, the flesh and blood Gally...

I initially thought that the treasure of Mars, the "immortality medicine" was actually the mathusalization technology. But the technology was later developed on Venus and a few years after Muster found the treasure it was still unavailable at the Grünthal valley, so they had to rely on the necrosold...

One thing that bothers me about the ZOT final

At the final of ZOT i really don't get why Space Angels and Space Karate actually try to kill each other. Now, ZOT is more often the rarely letal, ok, and the only team Space Angel didn't slay is Gunntroll. Well, excluding that chick enlisted by mistake among the Starship Cult. But after the first e...

Actually i doublechecked the panels, and Nollin looks a lot like Gally. It's the exagerate smiling expression that deceives.

Not much to say about this chapter besides the fact that Kishiro is introducing new plot elements like he will live forever. Thank you for the scanlation. And by the way, after al this childwood prequel, let's remember that there is Gynoid Gally in prenset time, togheter with Priesterine Mui and th...

Re: So, the flesh and blood Gally...

Now, late Kishiro style tend to make most of female faces look kinda the same, but i think hi openly cheated making Kagura look like an elegant version of Gally, to lure us into thinking it's was actually a Maske tumor detatched from Kagura. While Nollin don't look anything like her.

I've been re-reading the full Gunnm/Last Order, just to recap in general and to refresh my memory for the movie... I was wondering, at the end of Last Order, when Gally (the original one) is re-printed by the Biovivern Bioprinter, using her brain's DNA as a bluemark, the resulting flesh and blood Ga...

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 032 (part 1) Is out!

Again italian names. Italian is quite rapresented in Gunnm.

Like the Motorballer Valdicci, definately an italian name. And even Caligola, being a roman name is kind of italian.

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

I think the panzer kunst arc will be something like a panel at the end of one of the next arcs in which Kishiro will write "...and they spent the next 10 years training in Panzer Kunst". And then he'll start a new, totally unrelated, arc about a random homeless kid who wants to become the greatest f...

It appears like the Muser flashback arc would be over soon. What will we have to expect next? Will we see something about the Panzer Kunst trainig? Will we be back in the present?

Re: Gummn - Mars Chronicle 031 (part 1) Is out!

I think Den partially insipred Evangelion. There is a panel in which the head of Den is depicted in the act of turning back and it's a vague black siluette with white lights as eyes and there is an almost identical scene in Evangelion.

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

And yet Gally is not a necrosoldier, and she lived 240 years. So Tzykrow. I believe that the Grunthal massacre heppened after the Maulwurf operation, so after Gally was dumped in the atmosphere. And she must have been mathusalized already at that time. I don't believe being a necrosoldier would be a...

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

My point. But then Tzykrow is clearly matusalized, Erika is a necro soldier, ok, but she's still like 250 years old, and no hybernation here. We can presume she's is matusalized. So the rest of the survive kunstlers. So why not Yoko?
