I was wondering whether this was really gonna be the end since I had forgotten most of unanswered questions but I think this is a great ending for the next part. I don't know if the author plans to make the 3rd part as long as this one but I'm excited to see Alita confronting her past and I think the Nova who escaped to Mars is my favorite yet so it is definitely gonna be fun ^_^

More importantly, there is an Alita made from fless, maybe the biggest dream Alita ever had.

Thus it felt Alita's story came almost at full circle.

As Drugz said, this was a good ending.

Well now I've just finished reading this Desty Nova is possibly one of my favorite characters in anything now. Each time he appears you know something crazy is going to kick off and even when he's not there his name creates a war. At first I really kinda disliked him but he's too amusing. Flan is destiny~

 

One thing I'm trying to work out is the timeline the epilogue to part 1 and the ending to part 2 don't seem to really fit seeing as the epilogue to part 1 seems to happen after the ending of part 2. Other than that confusing the hell out of me this is one of the best reads I've had in ages.

No one warned you about that eh?

The thing is that the mangaka probably hadn't planned for a sequel so he had to wrap it up quickly in the first series.

 

When I was recommended to read this manga I was told not to read the chapters after Alita's death and move on to New Order.

There was some kerflunkle with the Editors hence why the rushed ending. I don't remember the exact details, but if you search around you can find an explanation (or maybe someone knowledgeable can fill us both in).

No doubt, it wasn't supposed to end at that point so in that respect there wasn't supposed to be a "sequel".

Ah i see i thought there was some kind of screw up there righto I'll just count the first part ending at Alita's death it makes a lot more sense then. I'm glad they got a second part in the end it did seem a little rushed i wonder where they'll expand in the third seems like its going to be mainly based on Mars.

He was basically forced to end the series hastily. He also didn't have any idea of how to do that just yet. Clearly he had an ending in mind(going by epilogue 1 and 2 and their content), but how to get there was lost on him.

 

He wrote Aqua Knights between starting the series back up, and that was a short series(it's said to be on hiatus, but this was all back in 1998 and I'm pretty sure Kishiro wants more Alita) and served a function of getting him back on track. Two years later Last Order started, and it retconned basically everything after the explosion/nuke/bomb in the final volume of the first series.

 

A lot of minor details from the first series and into the second are changed as well, but it's not really necessary to know them, just to gloss over any oddities you come across.

 

Finally, we have this bit of information.

I've been wondering how long we would have to wait for the sequel. It's great we already have 3 new chapters.

Oh thanks. Huh. Must be in connection with her parents then. I wonder why all these people are gunning after Alita... I'm thinking something was put in her brain. This is also the reason why her biological brain is going to be important.
