Not in the postal system, but everywhere. You are born with corruption, and you die with corruption - literally: your parents need to pay bribes in the maternity hospital to be sure that you will be born with care, and your children have to pay bribes to get a place for you on the graveyard (even if there are unoccupied places there) when you die.

You need a bribe to be accepted to kindergarden, then to school, then to graduate from school, then not to be taken into the army, then to enter the university, then to graduate from the university, then you have your own children who will need the same set of bribes. The circle closes.

I'm not even talking about medicine (you need to pay to get the right diagnosis), police (you can be stopped on the street for no reason and you will go to jail for a made up crime if you don't pay a bribe), driving license (nearly impossible to get without a bribe, even if you know everything flawlessly), everything. EVERYTHING.

Postal system... pfff, mere peanuts. :x

Except that Kayna died, that we all thought it would happen at a certain point.
Abaddon, why do you say that Gally is not going to happy?

See, Sam was so shaken up by the chapters that he saw things and thought my avatar was Gally. :lol:
It's Mika from the Resort Boin H game for those who were wondering. 8)
Spoiler:
Many characters have died in this series but this one for me cuts the deepest. :( Let us celebrate Kayna's life!

Ido relearning about his brain bio-chip though, that is an interesting thread but it had to happen. And where did Figure learn how to drive?

You'll have both the scripts tomorrow (promise, 120 raw quality is...it's better if I stay silent) but for now I'm wondering about this:
Spoiler:
After the atomic boiler explodes, Figure says "It's the second time I see that".
Did he see such an explosion somewhere before? When? I don't remember...

I didn't remember it and I can't check it myself because 90% of my mangas are in cardboard boxes and I forgot to put numbers and labels to know what stuff they hold. Stupid me.

Thanks.

It was after Knucklehead and his men attacked the train and got owned. After the train's nuclear reactor blew it triggered a tornado that dropped Gally, Figure, and Yolg in the abandoned city where the Barjack attacked them.
Spoiler:
Ido is bad luck for the women he falls in love with or fall in love with him. Carol from the Holy Night side story and Chiren from the OVA both died.

Spoiler:
Kayna got too popular.
Heck i liked her very much.
If one outshines Alita, then Kishiro has only one response...

"Kill the bitch"

Anyway this was coming.
I mean the whole Olympe death before and as mentioned above, Ido's woman.
He's got some bad luck.

Still, events like these make BAA what it is.
Not a "we all live happily ever after" story.

Makes you wonder who gets killed next?

This makes me happy, in some way. The last chapters of LO and the Zott left me with the idea Mr Kishiro had gone somehow soft and made the story more shounen than seinen.
At least we know the life on Earth is still the good ol' pit of despair and sadness we know and love.
Still wondering how all that will tie up with the "future" that is GLO first chapters.

Now we can see Kayna's fight and what happens in much better quality. :|

Oh wow AWESOME.

Now to think that the volume releases are only a few months behind when the last phase gets released.
If the English version gets released soon also, then my hat off to Kodansha.
So much faster then Viz ever was.

Well finaly.

Oh man,
Spoiler:
Poor Kanya.
Makes one wish Yukito didn't continue the series doesn't it?

Now i hope the next chapter or two will tie up the events and then it's finaly the present again.

Only one or two chapters to tie it up with the present seems rather short imo. When was the last time we saw Fogia and Ido in LO? Zott finale?
And they are currently in quite a mess.

I am hoping that YK doesn't do a redo of the original ending with Gally remaining in some odd transformed state then is reborn in human form when Figure shows up years later.

I won't consider the series over until the Gally and Figure wedding with Ido giving her away, Desty Nova incarnation whatever as best man, Koyomi as maid of honor, Tunpo officiating, and Kaos crying. And Jack Gerambo covering the whole thing for a Combat TV special with Vector broadcasting it throughout the Scrapyard. :lol:

I have a hunch the DNA Organ will have a *significant* part in the finale. I wonder though, how the chip-tuned Alita will resolve the slight case of cognitive dissonance of being a copy of herself.
