Re: Interview with Battle Angel Concept Artist James Clyne

Let's hope that mr.C won't screw brilliant designs on screen. This is promising: he spent over a year working full time on designing Alita's various incarnations. James Clyne: For Battle I was asked to focus in on the character design, primarily Alita herself. I'd say the first year was spent entir...

Re: What Gunnm / Battle Angel stuff/merchandise do you have?

Int 29ah- I completely agree that the amount of stuff you own in no way indicates how big a fan you are. A rich person could own thousands of Gunnm items as part of a huge collection of manga stuff but have no real attachment or excitement for them. And for the record, Int 29Ah strikes me as one of ...

Interview with Battle Angel Concept Artist James Clyne

I just posted an interview with James Clyne about his work on Battle Angel and Avatar: http://marketsaw.blogspot.com/2009/04/concept-designer-james-clyne-talks.html Seems like they are definitely exploring the multiple incarnations of Alita throughout the series (which is great news to me), as well ...

What Gunnm / Battle Angel stuff/merchandise do you have?

It's so damn hard to find anything Gunnm related to collect. I really wish there was more stuff for addicts like me to buy. Anyway, here's what I have: -All the books in English -The anime on DVD -an almost complete collection of the Viz comics run of the original series (missing about 5 issues) -Th...

Re: Where's my Baa fix!!??

OK, I understand what you are saying now. You are correct that Zekka has not literally done any singing in a band so far in Gunnm, and you are also correct that this cover is different from all previous covers in that it portrays a character doing something that he has not done so far in the comic. ...

Re: Where's my Baa fix!!??

Sergio... You know how Johnny Depp based his performance of Jack Sparrow on Keith Richards, the legendary guitarist for the Rolling Stones? Kishiro has based a lot of Zekka's character on the rockstar archetype as well. As you may know, Kishiro is a music/metal fan. Putting Zekka on the cover in a r...

Re: Battle Angel Alita Last Order 12 coming Oct 31st to US

Well at least Viz is back to releasing LO volumes twice a year.

I wish of course that they could catch up a bit and be only 6 months or so behind the Japanese release schedule, instead of over a year.

[img] Looks like you were right about Zekka on the cover! I love the Zekka as rock star thing...gets his personality across perfectly. Zekka rockstar? It does NOT make sense. Give us the link. I couldn't find it on Kishiro's site, neither on Amazon Japan. link to cover: http://books.shueisha.co.jp/...

I write for MarketSaw, and will hopefully be interviewing Mark Goerner about his work on Battle Angel in the next few days. He obviously can't tell us too many specifics regarding his work due to non-disclosure agreements, but I just thought I'd give you all a heads up.

Great idea for a thread. I love how her design evolves with her personality.

The last order designs--at least since volume 3 or so-- have too much crosshatchi...

Yeah, but usually there's at least a column for U. Jump, right?
The column usually disappears right before the new issue comes out. Anyway, I'm hoping this chapter will finally move the story forward.

Wow...this story is getting intense. It's great that we are seeing more backstory for Mbadi (I can't read Japanese, but it seems as though that trapped scientist on Pluto is the source of one of his brain chips). It also seems as though he has not incorporated a Nova brain chip yet. Seems like Alita...
