So, the flesh and blood Gally...

I've been re-reading the full Gunnm/Last Order, just to recap in general and to refresh my memory for the movie...

I was wondering, at the end of Last Order, when Gally (the original one) is re-printed by the Biovivern Bioprinter, using her brain's DNA as a bluemark, the resulting flesh and blood Gally is now a full body clone of Nollin? Apparently she couldn't be anything else. How could a Maske Tumor have it's own original DNA? Or could it?

Tumor is a generic rather than a specific term. But certainly many types are caused by a genetic mutation and are typically formed of one cell type. Clearly a maske tumor is made up of many different cell types, so we're already in speculation land. I would say that it has added its own twist to Nollin's DNA, rather than possessing its own. There are viruses that insert sequences of their DNA into their host's DNA. If I were novelizing the story, I'd make the maske tumor the result of a virus that was released as the trap.

considering reasonably smart people thought she could pass as Kagura's daughter...child, not clone.

Now, late Kishiro style tend to make most of female faces look kinda the same, but i think hi openly cheated making Kagura look like an elegant version of Gally, to lure us into thinking it's was actually a Maske tumor detatched from Kagura. While Nollin don't look anything like her.

Actually i doublechecked the panels, and Nollin looks a lot like Gally. It's the exagerate smiling expression that deceives.
