When Ido found the broken body of a young cyborg woman in the Scrapyard, he called her Alita and set his mind on making her as beautiful as possible. However, despite her complete memory loss, Alita has other plans. When she discovers she’s a natural at fighting, she goes against Ido’s wishes and decides she wants to become a bounty hunter “for her own sake.”
Written and drawn by Yukito Kishiro, Battle Angel Alita is classic cyberpunk and a must-read for fans of the genre.
