Reviews for Battle Angel Alita: The Novel
DaisukeIsMyHero chapter 1 . 7/23/2013
Hey! This is great! You have a real talent for writing. I read it all and I only found a couple of small oversights. If you want to make it absolutely perfect, I can give you editing advice. Firstly, the word 'it's' which you've used for the possessive doesn't take an apostrophe. Secondly, when Alita asks Ido, "Are you sure you're all right?" I'm sure he says something to the cyborg he's working on, ignoring her question... which is what prompts her to think he's evading her. You can take these suggestions on board, or not, it's still awesome. I like the background you've given the tattooed arm girl; very detailed! I really had the feeling I was living in the Scrapyard. More please!

Are you planning on updating? i seriously hope so as thi is one of the few B.A.A/Gunnm stories here, and the only good one.
Blacksword Zero chapter 1 . 5/10/2009
Please update.
Infragreen chapter 1 . 3/1/2009
My suggestion:

This is Gold!

Even as a novel, but I'd like to narrate it both in English and Danish. Make it an audio book!

You convey both the action and the emotions both accurately and powerfully.

Contact Yukito Kishiro and his publisher to get a definite permission to go ahead with the transcription.

I am a long time fan of this amazing manga... as a matter of fact , it is the specific one that got me reading manga in the first place. You may not see this, but if you do I urge you to continue.

I think you made a great start and should write more. I know there

are other BAA fans out there that would and have appreciated this story.

I know Gunnm inside and out and in my opinion you did a very good job transfering Kishiro's Beautiful artwork into words.

_I am impressed with your preliminary

chapter, but... Oh yes, there are always

caveats, aren't there? Why, yes there are! It

wouldn't be too helpful a critique if I just gave

praise without offering up some suggestions for

future improvements! (Yeah, that is why they

call 'em critiques, dudes and dude-ettes:

'Cause we have criticism, good and bad) So

here I go-pointing out faults and giving some


_Let's get the nasty part done first: the

criticism part. (Wait, wait... Gimme a

moment... Ah!) The ONE immediate problem was

with several lines, where you said, "...this

serendipity rising from him" and "...the remains

of cyborg girl." Serendipity doesn't "rise"

from people: Serendipity is akin to luck, so I

belive it would have read better if you would

have written "this moment of serendipity." Also,

you forgot the word "the" with the second

example. Particularly, you should have written

"of the cyborg girl." There were also other

instances of wanky English, but that's best left

to an editor. (Heck, I'm an amateur writer too-

not some corporate hack paid to mutilate...uh,

POLISH UP writers' works.) So that would be my

primary, if moderate, complaint: just SOME odd

English that can be fixed up just a little.

It's just something to keep in mind.

_With that done, let me tell you that your

work was surprisingly good after all!

Impressive was how you began the work with a

sort of sit-down-and-get-comfortable opening.

From there, the flow of dialogue and

description was smoo-o-oth-like a good bowl of

lightly cinnamoned oatmeal after a big cup of

hot chocolate. The pace was just fast enough,

while also remembering to set tone and ambiance.

Yes, you gave good descriptions while continuing

the story: very important. It's too bad I can't

give you plus-points on the plot...

_Before I finish this, here is a word of

warning: Don't try to do too much. From what

you propose to do, you could easily run into

several hundred pages: a massive project to do

in published increments. Take this warning for

what it's worth, I've written a few practice

novels myself, but you just may want to limit

your focus to two hundred-page blocks (around

fifty-thousand words) to publish at a time. Heh,

take as long as you like to do it-six months,

if need be. You have as long as your life to

finish projects, but just don't make them too

big. Then again, I'm a big project-man myself.

Interpret this as you will-maybe with the

help of some hot tea or hot chocolate.
Solitary Confinement chapter 1 . 11/10/2003
A most excellent chapter of my favorite manga, this has transferred all the feelings and emotiongs the images held with grand quality. I hope you'll continue this work with the same efforts!
