Another of my favourite manga series that initially got me interested in Japanese manga and anime, Battle Angel Alita is another classic Japanese manga from the early 1990s.

This series tells the story of an amnesiac female cyborg named Alita, whose head and upper torso are found in a state of suspended animation by cybermedic/bounty hunter Daisuke Ido while he is searching for useful scrap, and follows her as she recovers her past.

Alita is moving towards finding out who she was before Ido found her. She remembers while in the heat of battle, so she finds the strongest person around and challenges him.

This book was great because it moved the plot forward, though, the characters she picked for her team (view spoiler)

Surprisingly, there was an actual woman of color in this manga who was not a stereotype or a bad guy - unsurprisingly, she didn't say a single word before she got cut in half on-screen and then vanished. (Which doesn't mean she's dead; her brain survived, and I mean... androids.)

I honestly love this series! So much fun.

I am beginning to question my own life choices. So many times I could have just not changed my mind and continued to do something for no reason whatsoever.
