Re: Alita really is the "Battle Angel".

the movie would have to pass the 500 million mark to actually earn profits and justify a sequel. with 400 mil they already justified production budget. With incomes from merch, tv licensing, streaming and dvd\blu-ray sales they will get at least some minor profit. Also it's not all just about the n...

Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

Out of the ongoing ones, I'd say that the author of Houseki no Kuni as well as the authors of Mahoutsukai no Yome, Golden Kamuy or One Punch Man haven't lost their enthusiasm, so yeah, these are definitely worth reading. (Still haven't read Dorohedoro, though.) Those titles have barely started when...

Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

Currently I am reading Narutaru (Shadow Star) https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=2394 one of the many mangas I have in my "to read someday" list, it is old and already finished, plus a number of other series that I also reached the "wait for the next chapter to be released" point, like Aji...

Re: no Mars Chronicle log 33 this week

This sucks. Mangakas like Kishiro or Kentaro Miura (Berserk) that start lifetime long mangas and become lazy and uninterested as the years pass by are a pain in the ass. That’s why I prefer reading short to medium lenght mangas (Dorohedoro, Knights of Sidonia, Claymore) where the authors are able t...

Re: Who is Dasein?

We'll see...in 10 years. Unless Kishiro dies first. Damn, i hate endless publications. Does the editor have no balls? I hope kishiro leaves behind storyboard draft, key plot points to his editor and his brother. Also his brother could take over as he does some of the background art for yukito a lot...

For anyone wondering or hoping for release for the 33rd chapter of Mars Chronicle there is none as although it was suppose to appear in the 8th issue of evening 2019 it is absent and will most likely appear on issue #9 evening 2019 (4/9/2019).

Well it's an anime. We're talking about a movie here. Even though they could make it enterily in CGI I doubt that this would be that easy or convincing enough if you do not put motion capture in it.

Nitpicking every single movement is way too much for me, it just doesn't worth the effort. To me, one of the most attractive sides of Gunnm is that Kishiro have huge knowledge of physics, technologies and martial arts, he uses all of these to make Gunnm one of the most scientific accurate mangas I ...

Re: Alita: Battle Angel Movie - Spoiler Thread

If we take physics to the letter, Alita couldn't throw a punch at, let's say, Grewishika, without suffering an equal amount of damage (law of action-reaction). She did not punch him with any significant power in the movie, btw. She is only dismembered his arm at the joint point once, pushed in tors...

Re: Who is Dasein?

I can only see one possibility: the priestess. (priesterin) She was already there 200 years before so she could have made the necro soldiers. She now occupies a place of power and we may infer that she may well have resources to fund a private militia. She seems to enjoy a neutral status as her rol...

I don't see why you think in the sequel she might want to go to Zalem?? Literally the last scene in the movie heavily implies she wants to go up to Zalem to kick Nova's ass.

Finally saw the movie too.

You can take it as an interpretation of the manga. A different version of the story....

thanks, and happy new years indeed, hopefully after the movie gets released yukito, will go back making faster and steady releases, if this pace keeps it will take decades for this series to conclude.
