A new arc story, introducing a new main character.
Gianfranco Mancini


Alita sells her soul to Salem turning herself into the Dark Angel of Death and filling the emptiness left ito her heart with action and violence.



The new storyline starting in this 6th volume is essentially a funny homage/parody of Bronson & Hara famous 80s manga/anime Fist of the North Star (北斗の拳 Hokuto no Ken), sadly Kenshiro Figure Four and the other new characters introduced here were just not much as interesting as the previous ones and author seems improvising a lot more than usual.

Continued solid effort, though this was a little bit stranger as compared to the previous issues but that is understandable as even Alita's life changed in this issue so yeah this time around the most of the entire book is set out of scrap yard after all there's no one there for Alita. Now the action is set outside scrapyard and mostly in a desert and a city to boot in desert with skyscrapers was it maybe Dubai? Who knows fun fast and with a unkillable human protagonist who reminds me of Ryu or ...more

This is a good entry point if you don't want to start from the beginning. Most of the characters in it are new. Alita is executed for using a handgun to defeat Zapan in the previous volume, and only a stop order from Tiphares prevents it, after she is already so badly damaged that her teeth are nowhere near her face. She is then told she must agree with orders from Tiphares or her brain will die in less than two hours. She is trying to get back to Ido, now working as an assistant to Desty Nova a ...more

One might ask, is this the same Alita that I've been reading for the past 5 volumes? It's relatively new, and weird and it gets going at the same time. I'm in this rush to read volume 7 in wanting to know what the hell is really going on now.

A new Alita volume brings more action, more character development, a new ally (lover?). The ideas and story and artwork in this series have been excellent from the start and get better with each book. Another great entry. Love this material.

Si bien esta serie me ha sorprendido por la versatilidad del maestro Kishiro y el cambio de géneros de la historia de volumen a volumen; este, el 6to volumen, no me sorprendió tanto.
Tras los eventos del volumen anterior, la situación general de Gally cambia nuevamente. Con una nueva misión y un objetivo, Gally se pierde completamente para sumirse en la oscuridad y sed de sangre de la cual hemos visto algunos chispazos en los volúmenes anteriores. Si bien ya hemos visto peleas tipo shonen, peleas

The beginning of this installment in the series was so dark and promised so much as Alita is forced to make a deal with the people who live in the floating city above the scrapyard so she can see Ido again and avenge the people who brought about his death. It made for the kid of sequel from the previous installment that made me excited to continue reading. But then new characters were introduced that had nothing to do with that story line, and were added for the sake that Alita could feel connec ...more

It's not like I was expecting Shakespeare, but this story is kinda disappointing me. As a work of the 90's, I can see why people loved it. The visuals are unlike what many had probably seen at the time and the violence is at an ultra level. But I was just expecting more narrative filling out of this episodic manga classic.

Interesting changes in both Alita and what we learn from the setting.

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

A tres tomos del final, con un nuevo arco y muchos nuevos personajes (¡Algunos sobreviven al tomo y todo!), y con muy pocas respuestas con respecto a que es lo que realmente está pasando y el origen de Alita, se me ocurre que Yukito Kishiro había planeado que esta serie fuera bastante más larga.

Después de la épica batalla con Zapan este volumen se siente como un par de pasos hacia atrás en cuanto a escala, pero la historia está buena y los personajes nuevos son divertidos, creando nuevas situaci

Part of what makes Battle Angel Alita so fascinating is how often she ends up pivoting into new roles and story styles based on where things take her. And thus this is yet another shift as she agrees to become an agent of Zalem in the hopes of seeing Dr. Ido alive or otherwise avenged on Nova. This volume introduces a few minor characters but for the most part she's no longer tethered to supporting characters, which is a bit of a concern. Maybe things will get better.

See Alita with just a little hope is amazing. But the new character is just like "HE IS THE MAN" but I don't really like it, at least, in this Volume. I hope he can have a better development
