Battle Angel Alita
I hope it is ok to say hello to everyone.
I decided to have a look at the groups that were on my LJ list and the closest interest to my heart is Battle Angel Alita. :)
I have been a fan of Alita since 1994 when I bought the anime on the Manga Video label here in the UK.
I really can't describe how much I liked it and I just had to track down the first few graphics and some of the comics.
I even remember writing a story about Alita as part of my G.C.S.E exams >_<
Alita has been incredibly important to me, much of the work I do and many of the friends I have are due to Yukito Kishiro's creation. You are probably thinking I am a nut job! :D
Well I have collected Alita merchandise over the years (PS game, posters, kits, lighters, miniatures, the graphic novels) and a couple of years ago I bought the Super Excellent Series Gally doll. This was my first doll :? I never thought I was a doll person! What happened next was due to all the searching I did for this doll and I was propelled into the world of Japanese resin dolls! I now go to meets, conventions, chat with people from many different countries and I thank Alita for that! I hope that doesn't sound silly!
I have loved seeing the tattoos, I have wanted a tat of Alita charging up on my back for many years now. Girl friends in the past have never been "at all" keen but I think it might soon be possible. ;)
Sorry for boring everyone and I hope to meet some new people and share the admiration for Alita!
