The Battle Angel Alita series envelopes a post apocalyptic
world interspersed with cyborgs, mutants and normal humans.
It is a story of a cyborg, who has no recollection of her
past, and her relationships with others as she tries to survive
in the world consumed with war and violence.
The series comes across as an anime version of Mad Max/Road
Warrior with a tough yet sometimes touching female lead character.
Although I feel this is a good story with some fine, consistent
artwork, I still can't help but feel it has more of a pulp
novel feel to it. There really is no mental challenge in reading
this story and some if not all of the characters are basically
predictable. There really is only so many types of Road Warrior-esque
stereotypes that can be used over the length of a series before
you feel a lack of evolution.
In my opinion, you'll read most likely read through once
and then never read it again.
