This Week: Battle Angel
On January 28th, Yukito Kishiro finally brought the Battle Angel Alita: Last Order manga to the end of its run.
With roughly double the length of the original series, its kind of a weird thing to actually see. If we include the original (1990 – 1995, ended early due to health reasons), some random short stories (that slow drip collection starting in 1997), and Last Order (2001 – 2014), this has all been, well, a pretty impressive professional accomplishment to say the least. The series had a little two episode OVA produced, so it seemed timely to pop back in this week and well before the next endeavor (The Martian War Chronicles) kicks off later this year.
