I'll just do a quick quotation:
Hey guys, Here's some info on the issue between Kishiro and Shueisha. It comes from manga-news.com and it's confirmed by Heiji-sama who is a really trustworthy guy, one of the guys who used to run Raw-paradise (R.I.P. Raw-paradise)

I merely translated it in english:
"Is Kishiro Yukito going to leave Shueisha? Indeed, last june 14th, the author posted a message on his blog, explaining that on the 7th of June, he received a phone call from his Tanto (editor) who was asking him to change 3 things in the new version of Gunm. Those three things are:

- change the word Hakkyô (発狂) in the first volume, because this word (which means madness) might refer to schizophrenia (According to shueisha, the ministry of justice would have agreed on this)
- change the word Hakkyô (発狂) in the 4th volume.
- Change the word psycho (in the sentence: Die, you fucking psycho) in the third volume).

The author disapproves of those changes. And he doesn't understand why this decision is taken now, whereas the series has been published for 10 years now. They kept discussing and had a meeting in Tokyo on the 16th. According to the author, this meeting ended up in a total "defeat". The three words are indeed going to be changed.

The author ends his message with this sentence: "Right now I don't know what I am going to do. Am I going to keep on working with Shueisha? Or am I going to find an other way? Right now I haven't decided yet." "
Later, Kishiro pointed out that he used the exact same words in GLO, too, but no one objected to this. There were several other meetings, Kishiro demanded an apology by Shueisha (not only for the changings but also that this issue was suddenly brought up after 10 years, right before the deadline to the 100th chapter anniversary in UJ) and a change back to the old version.
But negotiations eventually failed to come to a good end. Now he's with Kodansha's Evening and will return around March.

Good to know. Meantime, let me ask you: what about the novel?
I'm wondering the same thing too. Since the next GLO chapter won't come out really soon and you guys have nothing to translate, what about the novel?

Looks as if nobody cares. People! Skipping the novel while you have so much time to make it is an unforgivable crime! It's the only piece of BAA story left we know nothing about. :x

But it's not like this is written by Kishiro, as far as I know he only developed the villain's look. And no reference or whatsoever to it in the manga or in the various timelines we have, so it simply isn't canon. It's more like a fanfic. And to be honest, I don't expect a 180° new perspective on Alita and the scrapyard after reading it. (More like: introduction, danger drawing near, threat to Alita's loved ones, fight, resolution, end.)
This, plus the huge-ass pile of work translating a whole book in your free time... I can somehow understand that Targa seems to be not interested...

Why do you think so? From the page images in that topic I can say that it's VERY LIKELY to be drawn by YK himself - the style matches 100%. It's an early YK's style (HFV 1&2). The dates on his official gallery are 1996, which is another proof.

Also, it's a printed book from the shop, which Sergio has bought.


Also, read the annotations:
http://jajatom.moo.jp/album_e/gallery.c ... view&no=41
http://jajatom.moo.jp/album_e/gallery.c ... view&no=38

Only this wallpaper isn't made by him, but it's written in the plaintext just beneath it. Also, you can easily tell from the style.
http://jajatom.moo.jp/album_e/gallery.c ... view&no=39

But the others are HIS, I'm 100% sure about that.

PS.
He has a NY flash at his site! Go take a look!

PSPS.
I've saved it anyway.

Mh, I didn't make myself clear. So Kishiro developed and drew the main antagonist, like you said, okay. But it's a novel, so it's text only, with a few pic's here and there. This is why I meant we most likely already have all the material that YK donated for this project (the pictures) - and "only" lacking the text. The text however was written by [??? I don't know who], but definitely not by YK. He may have thrown in some ideas along with his new characters but nothing more.

Of course it's printed and published, but everything Alita experiences there, everything she learns, every tear, every kiss, every highly philosophical thought never had ANY impact on the manga. I mean it's not even a prequel like the extra story "Christmas Carol", which developes Ido's character more thorough. The whole plot just never happened in BAA. So if it's not canon and if it's not by YK, I'll call it a fanfic.
It's like a movie to an anime series. The plot is pointless and no progress in the overall story or the characters is allowed. Mostly, you can't even say at what exact point in the actual story it is set. I'd recommend you to watch a random Dragon Ball Z movie to get what I mean but I don't want to belittle your opinion about anime even more (because those movies really are crap^^).

It is not canon, certainly, but I would not name it a fanfic.
It is a novel written by Yasuhisa Kawamura, developed from the plot Kishiro had created in HFV, although there are some liberties.

Before stating to scan, I did ask TargaryenX if he was interested in translating it. He even said the mission was a challenge he was attracted to. When I say he suddenly became silent… I mean exactly that.

Of course it is his right to be interested or not, and I would never argue about that, but you can imagine it is only natural for fans to be curious.


And, moooV, the wallpaper is also Kishiro, as it is also included in the book and all the images are credited to Yukito Kishiro.

So that's how it is - now I get it. I just thought that it was a _manga_ drawn by YK, but based on someone else's plot.
If it's a text with some images then you're definitely right.

What about myself — I care about Mars, ZOTT, and other things only a little. The only thing I find important is the brain-brainchip thing of the volume 10 and Alita getting her brain back, nothing else.

Now I'm just asking. OK? Could it be that he really does mean a HEN version?
Spoiler:
H, or ecchiThe English use of "hentai" is more similar to the way the Japanese use the slang term エッチ (H, or ecchi), which refers to any sexually explicit content or behaviour. Ecchi is simply the spelling-out of the Japanese pronunciation of the letter H. The origins of this term are uncertain, but it may be a shortened form of hentai used as a polite codeword in the 1960s.
He could mean a storyline that really deviates from his normal method.

Hide the image into the spoiler, please! I've had to close the tab immediately and reopen it with images disabled to be able to answer you.

Yes, he had.

>>>Lou's brain got blended in the process of reincarnating Alita.
Nothing like this.

If you remember (you can open the manga and confirm, but DON'T POST IT HERE; and I'm confident of my memory) a box with Lou's brain was left intact - robots transported it to the Space Angels platform and Deckman had it with him when he threw the brainchip and Fata Morgana to Tunguska.

>>>So that means her current identity is comprised of Lou's Brain,
No. Big fat NO - just open the manga.

>>>Alita's Bio-Chip Brain, and the Fata Morgana?

If you meant "Alita's brain chip and Fata Morgana" then definitely yes.
If you meant "Alita's brain, Alita's brain chip, and Fata Morgana", then the only right answer is "We don't know yet".


PS.
Don't ever post manga pages without hiding them into spoiler if it's not a translation topic!

It's amusing to witness how the one user here that tries to avoid GLO for one year each (moooV) constantly get's free GLO-pictures by helpful users.
I finally get to use the mega-smiley: Image ;)

But a Venus chapter? Please no! Get Alita on Mars, let her turn into a human (maybe reunite with Figure Four) and then finish it. It will be a sad day in our lifes but good things don't tend to get better if you play with them for too long...


@Brain: Plus, Alita's brain most likely is on Mars right now, since Nova took the Olympus Express some time ago. However, in the retroperspective, the whole rescue-Lou-plot was rather weak, right now Alita doesn't give a damn about this brain anymore.

Volume 10, page 190 (no, moooV, I am not going to post it here!), Arthur-Melchizedek blends Fata Morgana to Alita's brainchip.
When number 100 shoots the brainchip, it is already the final result.

I do not know if Alita is still worried about Lou's brain or not, but one thing is clear: the ZOTT has gone to far and it would be great if the action is transferred to Mars.

That's exactly what I wanted to say. You see, Lou's brain is safely inside the P-box, it wasn't blended with Alita's brain chip and Fata Morgana, thus proving this phrase of gilsand wrong:

I remember, the blonde girl that resembles Pam. Too bad, I think that she isn't a very important character in LO actually, the rescue is somewhat senseless because I fell that Alita's loss all interest about her in the last chapters.

Greetings,
Now just to help clear my Narcotic addled brain I will use pictures (hidden :D ) and should help in getting this explained to me :|
We Have Lou's brain in the "P" box, and Alita's brain is sitting in the glass transport tube.
Spoiler:

Then,"Is it really OK to give up your only piece of flesh?"
Spoiler:

Next, she wants her brain back, Lou's brain is safe in the "P" box.
Spoiler:

She dies, but her brain lives on, cuz Super Nova has already collected it.
Spoiler:

We jump ahead to where I see a definit "P" on the box.

Just a few thoughts, gilsand;

Yukito might have just drawn a "P" on the P-box in the last image you posted to make it look less bare, as a mistake, or just automatically, not even thinking about why he was putting a "P" on the box as he drew.

Or

It might be that if it was intentional, there are plenty of P-boxes in the GLO universe. Like a shipping box from Amazon.com; they all have the same curved arrow shape that looks like a smile on one side of the box, yet we can all agree that not all Amazon.com shipping boxes are the same one (I hope).

The P-box(es) are probably just a cargo boxes in GLO; mass-produced for various needs (in GLO).

A few last things is why would Nova give Alita her brain back after working so hard to get it? How would Alita get her brain back from someone like Nova who can apparently crush her (at that period of time)? And in vol. 14, when Alita is "healing" Zazie, she is contemplating to herself about how she felt when she found out her brain was a chip and all that that entails, she says nothing about having any physical human flesh left, including any of Lou's.

And plus, Alita has a dominant, warrior, strong, proud, won't-be-pushed-around-for a-second type personality; Lou has a very different personality. Fusing them with no noticeable difference would be impossible.

While on the subject, though, I'd like someone to explain to me why at the end of vol. 11, when Number 100 tosses Sechs Alita's "chip" fused with the Fata Morgana, it looks like a brain? We've seen the insides of people's heads with brain-chips in the GLO universe before; we know that it's just a biochip at the bottom of the character's skull. So why does Alita have a biochip with a fake brain encasing it?

Greetings Gallygun,
I agree that Yukito Sensi be afforded artistic license for the use of the box to fill space, or that the "P" on the box might denote cargo identifier, a mistake, or a cargo Tag.
OK, :idea:
But come on, as meticulous as he is in creating his art for the story, I would like to think he has that detail covered. He throws so much into the story that it is his intention to overwhelm you with details.
How would Alita get her brain back from someone like Nova who can apparently crush her (at that period of time)?
Since Alita is on a Warriors quest I see her discovering new abilities, hmmm. What did that "Death Star" type thing say at the end?
The gentle nature of Lou's personality may be what is needed to balance the warrior.
Just a thought...
"So why does Alita have a biochip with a fake brain encasing it?"
Is this bringing us back to the Lou's brain question again?
I like the way you think :geek:
For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill.
To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.
