Re: Series nitpicks and inconsistencies

Payne isn't even a character to begin with. It's a mere representation of Alita's guilt and doubt. More than a philosophical figure, his role is mostly to avoids wall of texts of corny emo guilt drama. Let's face it, it's more entertaining to read a Nazi looking ghosts harassing a crying heroine tha...

Re: Series nitpicks and inconsistencies

I always assumed "xechs" was a variation made to distinguish "Sechs", aka the first girl body and the little doll, with the male body, who isn't really the real zechs, and more some sort of fancy robot piloted by the doll. Also could there be some pun there, with Xechs->X-ecks->ecks-ecks->XX / ex-X ...

Re: Zott finally wrapping up

as far as I know, the zott was already in the PSone videogame, so it wasn't a a forced event out of nowhere. I think Kishiro made it last so long because it allowed him to use many one shot characters, for one shot special fights that wouldn't fit anywhere else in the story, but were still fun to dr...

Re: Series nitpicks and inconsistencies

It's mostly about Gally's will. she eats because she wants too. ... As for the clones, well, because it's not show doesn't mean it doesn't happen. Zekka drinks beer, and his body tech is close to Zech's. Imo it's more of a matter of relevance to the plot than anything else. Like Bender - "I smoke a...

Re: GLO 102

nice chapter it seems. the zechs/Zekka fight is looking quite silly to me, though. I'd prefer some more focus (and maybe conclusion) on Zazie vs Rakan.
Hope we get some interesting info in the translation, too. this chapter looks surprisingly dialogue heavy.

Re: Series nitpicks and inconsistencies

4) Why does Alita eat? I understand, that in HFV she was a cyborg and had to get some chemical elements for the brain (but in the extra stories Ido has refused to install a glucose cartridge into her). I understand that in the first ten volumes of LO she thought that she's a cyborg and ate sometime...

Re: Series nitpicks and inconsistencies

Not sure about inconsistencies and all, but during Yugo's arc, we learned that Zalem regularly orders a whole human body worth f body parts to Vector. Brain included. This idea really went nowhere. Maybe a possible attempt to introduce Nova earlier?

Re: So...Is this the end of the Viz era for Last Order?

to clarify the situation about mirroring in French manga. No, it's not common anymore. It's actually pretty rare now. Glénat keptit for Gunnm Last order for consistency sake with the former serie. which is, imo, pretty stupid. But it's Glénat, so stupidity is expected. Hence why I wish Gunnm would e...

Re: So...Is this the end of the Viz era for Last Order?

I wish Glénat, the French editor of Gunnm, would lose the rights. They did a really shitty and lazy job with GLO. Which is even more rage worthy because the original Gunnm was very well done (mirroring asside). a shame.

Re: Chapter 101 RAW

nice chapter, but nothing much happened. Understandable considering the latest events with Kishiro's editor. I'm currious so know whether the fenix rebirth was planned in the the story before the events. Because that's quite of an awesome coincidence.

Re: What is with Alita's gender-bender thing?

Gally has a sex. She's a female, because her brain has XX DNA pairing. The early gender issues were mostly occurrences I think. The name being form a male cat was a one panel joke. I don't think there was any other meaning there except attempt at humour. (from my experience, Kishiro isn't really goo...

Yukito Kishiro's humour is getting better, but still, even as Japanese humour he's kinda terrible at it imo. Makes it cute somehow.

pretty good news there. with all the "extra time" on his hands, let's bet the next chapter will be gogeous. Clour maybe? I feel like there hasen't been colour pages in GLO for ages.

Re: Is Viz halting publishing on BAALO?

I wouldn't mind if someone else got the right for France, to be honest. Glénat does a very poor job on LO. I'd gladly buy every volume again to support any new editor that gives us a more professional work.
