    Default Striking Similarity To M.G. Armstrong (Unavoidable Spoilers)

    I've been reading GUNNM, or Battle Angel Alita as Viz calls it, for quite some time now, and just today I noticed a very powerful resemblance between two characters, Vilma/Sanguis from GUNNM Major General Olivier Milla Armstrong from FullMetal Alchemist.

    Seeing as how GUNNM's first showing of Vilma predates the first showing of M.G. Armstrong, or so I calculate, is it probable that FMA's mangaka, Arakara Hiromu, may be a fan of Kishiro Yukito?

    Anyway, for wariness of the rules, I'll simply post a link to the picture containing evidence of just such similarities. (as well as a few extra, full sized shots for individual comparison.)

    Once again spoilers ahead.

    Various individual pages from either manga -

    Anyone else wonder if this is simply coincidence, or accidental "inspiration?"
