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.

Brokenhearted over the death of her first 'true love', Alita runs away from home and becomes a motorball (a deadly amalgamation of rollerderby, football, and no-holds barred mixed martial arts) competitor.

Doctor Ido searches for Alita, and eventually stumbles upon her. In a desperate attempt to bring her home he forms an alliance with the star of the Motorball Top League, the invincible Jashugan...
