As some of us have already pointed out on Twitter, BLADE RUNNER: BLACK LOTUS looks extremely derivative of Battle Angel Alita.
It’s good to see that fans of Alita aren’t the only people who have picked up on the similarities between Alita (sometimes called Ali in the live-action film) and Elle.
“It feels more like Battle Angel Alita to me. Even the main character Elle has heavy shades of Alita. It’s hard to tell whether she’s inspired by her, or if she’s a direct clone. I really hope it doesn’t end up being the latter. While I like Battle Angel Alita, I’m not a fan of cloning characters into another series aside from as cameos. It just feels a bit lazy to me.”

I have a bad feeling about this… concerning ABA. Could it be that creatives are given the okay to rip off ABA themes, for everyone in the industry now knows it’s abandoned?
