is it the facial features youre after? or is it the whole package (height, hair, personality)? alita like most anime characters look super unrealistic, youre basicly looking for a girl with big eyes, a small nose and octo lips. good luck lol. post a picture of the one who came close?
What do you mean by "autism tier"? (I am actually partially on the autism spectrum, but too social to be fully Sheldon :geek: ).

It's interesting that you ask about the Alita lookalike I mentioned, because my cousin just mentioned her to me the other day. :oops: I wish I had a pic of this girl - unfortunately I don't see her that often (and I think she's moved to another city now, so it's likely I may not actually see her again :cry: ...she's not on Facebook or Twitter far as I know). When I say she is a dead ringer for Alita, I mean in practically everything: hair, eyes, eyebrows, octo lips (hard to believe but true), face shape, body shape (the really long legs on a very short torso), but also in things you can't pin down, like a lot of the expressions Alita makes. (She even has the two pointy eye teeth when she smiles). I wish I had taken a picture of her and sent it to Robert Rodriguez, that's how similar she looked.

Anyway, I know this is coming across as really geeky, but it's not every day that you stumble across something that strikes you so much in reference to your favourite manga, which you've been inspired by since you were a kid. :oops:

As for the romantic relationship, I think there are worse ways to look for a love interest than letting literature inspire you, don't you think? I'd love to find someone just like Alita, but I know that's not likely, so I'll settle for the next best thing, someone who I click with who makes me laugh. :lol: However, I'm not looking at the moment. Too happy being free and having all possibilities open to me. 8)
get a hold of a picture then im really curious now dont leave me hanging.
:lol: I hate to leave you hanging but it doesn't look like I have a choice in the matter, unless I track her down and take a pic, steal her photo albums, or hack into her computer. Leave it with me, though. ;)

Wow those production sketches are really cool, though I'm surprise you didn't get the deluxe edition of the first battle angel, it has some colour pages so that's a good incentive.

^Thanks, I collect things like production artwork, cels, anime/manga related sketches and autographs (http://coldsteel.rubberslug.com/gallery/home.asp). Since the OVA is only 2 eps, cels are rare and pricy. The Minowa drawings aren't cheap either, but more manageable even though there is only have a single source for them. Unless you buy them from other collectors.

The movie trailer reminded me about this site and the gunnm fandom in general. I'd been dormant. it's been a few years since I went through my collection but I've got most of what's available.

About ten various shirts (haven't been able to find the cameron one anywhere it was probably custom made) 18 of the toys those weren't cheap, boxes and boxes full of the various manga releases, the doujins, the phone cards, soundtrack cds, production drawings, notes, all the laserdiscs, vhs tapes, resin models, all the usual posters and scrolls etc. For a few years I bought anything I could get my hands on. I'm still missing a gunncyclopedia but I think I'm past my collecting phase. My fandom isn't what it once was.

Maybe if the movie triggers a gunnm resurgence in japan I'll get more stuff but I'm not optimistic.

A few months ago I completed my Alita Last Order collection, all the numbers by Viz and Kodansha. I also got the artbook. Now I have to start buying the Martian Chronicles and I am also thinking about getting the omnibus edition of ALO just for the extra stories. Furthermore I am also collecting the new Brazilian omnibus edition of Hyper Future Vision (for the third time I am buying the same arch...).

I too hope that damned movie prompt new merchandise release -
based on the manga, not in the movie, otherwise it will be a no go.

^Didn't know Gunnm generated so much merch. Trying to find historical info from the mid '90s online about the series is challenging.

If these are displayed online, I would like to see them. :P

Not as familiar with the lingo as I used to be. If these pictures aren't online anywhere I have a scanner around here somewhere I could dig it out and put them up. I found a second priestess live doujin that isn't in the DL section too, though that isn't any great loss to the gunnm community it's super thin and crappy.

Nice stuff you have there. If you find time and mood to scan and upload any original images that aren't included in the artbook it would be great.

@Kvh - I mentioned Rubberslug. It's a gallery for animation and comic art (anime is primarily represented). So a lot of the Gunnm cels/sketches I'm familiar with are on galleries there. The search function is in need of a fix, so I suggest the Google trick of using site:rubberslug.com "x y z" for searching.

For the non-mainstream merch (GNs, DVD) there is ebay and Yahoo Japan Auctions for OOP or Japanese merch. If you are trying for cels or the production drawings, I haven't really seen those on Yahoo Japan Auctions. A couple cel dealers have them, but keep in mind that the OVA is only 2 eps, so there isn't that much material that I've seen being sold and what is on offer is pricey.
