I know this is gonna sound nitpicky, but I'm disappointed that the Damascus blade will probably be a sword in the movie. That's the one thing it never was in the comics. It feels too heroic/romantic for Alita, whose fighting style is extremely utilitarian.
The thin sleek blade doesn't suit Alita. She's already visually sleek/elegant/pretty/cute. The harsh pragmatic form of the damascus blade provides a nice visual contrast and also belies her indomitable inner character.
I still hope the movie is good though. If they just follow the basic storyline, the core is SO GOOD that I'm certain it'll do really well. And I hope that brings Kishiro mounds of cash and brings more people to the comics :D

Oops used the word "belies" wrong here lol what a dope! I should have said "reflects."
This is obvious right? Do I need to say it? :3

Actually movie Alita is even closer to the Metal Gear Rising version of Raiden

The fact that I DONT want to jump off a bridge for using a word so completely wrong means that I'm growing up a little, I think?
