Battle Angel Alita tells the story of Gally (Alita in the American version), an amnesiac female cyborg. This cyborg's intact head and upper torso are found in a state of suspended animation by the cybermedic expert Daisuke Ido while he is out searching for useful scrap. Amazed by his discovery, Ido quickly returns home and works to revive her. Upon finding that the girl has lost her memory, Ido names her Alita, the name of his recently deceased cat.


The rebuilt Alita soon discovers that she possesses instinctive knowledge of the legendary Martian martial art Panzer Kunst, although she has no other memories of her previous life. Alita must learn to navigate, exist, and fight in the Scrapyard, whose inhabitants themselves live in the shadow of the tantalizingly close floating city, Tiphares. Her journeys take Alita across the Scrapyard and surrounding areas, as she tries to recall more of her past.


I just bought the first 3 vols of this incredible manga and I got hooked up real bad. For those that like violence, cyberpunk and good story telling this is a must read.




















The manga was first published in Shueisha's Business Jump magazine. It was then serialized from 1990 to 1995 in nine tankōbons. And for personal reasons the creator,Yukito Kishiro, had to stop the edition. Only to start, years later, Gunnm Lat Order. Retelling the story and continuing it as he intented in the beginning.

It also was adapted to 2 OVAs in the 90s. This Ovas had many differences with the original comic and were simplified a lot. Meaby that was the reason of the low ratings and subsecuent cancellation. For those interested Im gonna put these OVAs in the Anime forum...
