After two disappointing (but not too much) volumes, emotions and thrills abound in another top-score one with Alita battling against herself and the return of lots of the best characters in the saga (some just for a lone but intense image).



And the long waited meeting of the Battle Angel with her father figure Ido is not going to be the one you was expecting for.



Just wait and see.

This review is for Volumes 1 to 9.

I became interested in reading the manga after watching the Alita: Battle Angel movie because the premise showed heaps of promise. This is definitely an action-packed read although the illustration is not exactly my type of art. I wanted to like this but it feels like the work is not polished. The manga pacing and execution totally threw me off. I found it hard to become grounded in the narrative and I felt like my bunch of ‘whys’ were not answered satisfactoril

Las cosas comienzan a alinearse para el final y comienza a hacerse evidente que no habrá muchas respuestas en esta serie.
Este volumen está acompañado por el reencuentro tan esperado entre dos personajes. Debo de admitir que nunca pensé que el status de Gally cambiara tanto. Ha sido uno de los protagonistas de manga que más transformación ha tenido porque va a terminar en un lugar completamente distinto a dónde comenzó. Me agrada ver como algunas de las relaciones del personaje terminan mal, no e

Esta es otra parte de la historia de la que recordaba escenas con claridad, y tiene muchas revelaciones y momentos interesantes. El arte continúa siendo excelente, y los personajes son increíbles. Siempre recuerdo lo impactante que me resulto Den la primera vez que leí esto, lo terrorífico que me resultaba Desty Nova... En ese momento no sabía lo cerca que estaba del final, apenas unos capítulos y se termina.

Barjack attacks Zalem, Alita battles her twin and her greatest opponent in a dream/simulation. It's never clear what's at stake.

My favorite character is the reporter that is also a serial killer. Never saw that coming.

Pues, en comparación a los otros tomos, no me ha gustado demasiado. Siento que se ha exagerado la exageración (?).

Love this classic scifi manga, Alita was an awesome character. Wish the upcoming movie shows her past in Mars. Here is the official trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l17i8...

Synopsis: Battle Angel Alita tells the story of an amnesiac female cyborg named Alita.

Although she has no memory, Alita soon realize

Somewhere around here I saw an important change. Part of Alita's character is that she's about the best cyborg warrior that's ever been, and given the proper equipment she can defeat anyone. Which is great and all, but makes for too easy climaxes. Sure, occasionally she needs to find the will power or chi or whatever of the day mental ability to come to victory. But eventually near the end of the initial run, she finally finds forces that she can't defeat with her physical strength, or just her ...more
