Re: Gunnm - Mars Chronicle 009 (part 1) Is out!

For Erika's modern Panzer Kunst technic, I would go with Panzer Zeit An (Panzer time on, in German). It fits phonologically and it's not complete gibberish.

Could it be she is having the same seizures as Jashugan?

Jules Verne, a late 19th century French author, known as one of the first true science-fiction writers, wrote a short novel called les Indes noires (Black Indi...
