Battle Angel Alita: Last Order
The first series was good, the second series is better. Thread for discussing the happenings as seen.
I've seen all of the current volumes from 1 to 10, any idea when volume 11 will be out?
how does the anime relate to the manga ?
i've read up to when alita takes up that racing game, and challenges the super strong champion. and that's about it. nice series, unique artwork.
^ That's the original, last order is a sequel based on a revised ending since he basically ran out of time and had to end the series back then.
So, it's in effect a continuation of the story from just a few chapters before the original series ended.
It's very good, I like it more than the original, though apparently not everyone shares that opinion.
For particular reasons I don't like the new Alita from New Order. The drawing is different and cheap compared to the original. Same goes for the Artwork, and the story is a quite shallow in analogy to the philosophical story of the first Alita books. Though I still try to follow, it's better than other common stuff. Forget the Anime...
Last Order feels like one of those trashy, straight-to-dvd sequels that Disney always makes.
All the substance that the series had before (particularly in the last few volumes might I add) has been replaced by numerous flashy fight scenes. I try not to think about how disgraceful what's been done to Desty Nova is.
^Ripper's Anime Page - Manga page
I've found a site where you could download phases 66 through 76, does anyone know where to get phases 63 through 65?
Glad that you like BAA LO.
I am the editor for rippersanime, and I have the answer for the gap 63-65.
In Ultra Jump, they are releasing phases.
In VIZ, they are releasing chapters.
And some phases that has only been like 14 pages, VIZ didnt they name them chapters.
So when we were releasing volumes at rippersanime, we had to change the phases names to chapters names.
But now we have stopped releasing volumes, and only releasing phases instead.
That created a gap, but no chapters/phases are missing
And phase 77 should be out soon. I am currently typesetting it.
Seeing as Alita now has a chip for a brain, would it seem unlikely that she'll have to face a version of her with her organic brain?
