Manga origin with Yoko's lookalike

Postby Sam » Wed Oct 10, 2018 2:11 pm

Don't remember if there was a topic about appearances of gunnm in other mangas but I found out that there's a Yoko lookalike (at least to me) in chapt. 74 of Origin (a very good manga btw, even if the plot is simple)
Here's a link to what I mean: http://mangakakalot.com/chapter/origin/chapter_74

It very much looks like when she was doing motorball IMO.

I have been reading this manga. But I don't believe she looks as Alita , just a similar hair cut. I do also believe that character is also a robot.

I don't think it is a reference also.

After reading this post, I started reading this Origin manga and I reached the conclusion that it presents some fresh new ideas about how androids (wrongly called "robots" in the manga) should behave and in which ways they differ from humans. Their bodies are more similar to the cyborgs from Ghost In The Shell, I think GITS is the biggest reference Boichi takes to crate his "robots", however, as I said before, their behavior is something fresh even for us, so used to cyborgs/androids/robots. In some way, he takes back some ideas from Isaac Asimov.

I have read a few things from Boichi before: Raqiya and the SF short history Hotel that left a deep positive impression in me in spite of being one of his earliest works. Late he would redrawn the whole story as Hotel Since 2079. He changed the conclusion also, thus the first version still is my favorite. Boichi is Korean, but works in Japan and has an engineer degree.

If someone is wondering about my newest choice of avatar, it is because here in Brazil people are about to elect a nazi for president. That's it, a plain nazi. This country is crazy and the social order is in grave danger of falling apart. Gladly Sergio didn't live to see such disgrace. If I disappear from this forum, chances are that I was arrested as a political dissident. Shit happens guys, sometimes really big shit. moooV will be able to understand better.
