About: Alita is a powerful cyborg with a soft heart and a mysterious past. Her second lease on life isn't easy: her heart is broken, she gains and loses friends to the cruel world of the Scrapyard far below the Utopian city of Tiphares, and she serves many masters in her quest to protect the innocent and create a new life for herself.

One of my absolute favorites ever. Right up there with JJBA.

I love the steampunk feel in the first part and the epic space feel in the second, the battles are amazing, the science stuff really interesting... I can go on a rant on how good it is XD

I could rant for years about how great it is, and I have 3x. Been reading this manga for 14 years so far, it's my favorite series ever. Barring none, no matter what the platform the media is in.

This series is definitely among my Top 10, not quite my favorite though. I just hope James Cameron keeps his promise and adapts this into a movie at one point, he is the only one who could do something convincing.

Started reading this a few months ago, I do agree it's rather well done.  Not a huge fan of mecha, to be honest; HOWEVER, the plot's very well done.  Drama's not overkilled, and it's a good balance of depressing dystopia among other things.

 

Should pick it up again. .  .

Up to chapter 116 is currently out. Did not notice this.

 

I'm excited to see what happens with Figure. Alita's story felt like a good place to leave off where it did. That is to say, that arc ended on a really good note. While I'm curious as to what will happen next, I'm really excited to see Figure.

 

I just hope Ido's assistant is okay. Hopefully she's not dead just as we get to know more about her.

And what is that supposed to tell me? Everyone knows that Cameron does not enjoy the best reputation, it´s only one part of his abilities as a director though and definitely not the part i was referring to.

I'm curious about the future of BAA scanlations. The new English licence group apparently has a standard of practice of shutting down current scanlation groups when they go into releasing. This caused Ripper to drop it, and the group that picked it up used their translation(as they still translated it, not scanlated) without permission. I wonder how they'll last, as a group, with basically two sides able to go against them.

 

Dangit, I need money so I can just buy these.

Despite the awful translations for these chapters I'm still super excited. So you have the major characters from the first half of the series finally catching up to Alita. Figure seeing Sechs again after he got his tushy handed to him before might be entertaining as well. 3:

 

But yes, totally happy to see these characters coming forward with their purpose - the series might be starting its way toward conclusion after a loooong time. 3:

"Ass Pull": Often the first term people use to show how dissatisfied they are with something before it can be explained.

 

"Bull shit": often the first term used when a person expresses their dissatisfaction with something and they don't like the explaination.

The most interesting developments that have happened in the last few years.
And there is something that every Alita fan has been wishing for from the beginning of the manga!! Guess what.. :P

The next volume is the last one and comes on April.
