One day doc Ido, a former Tipharean citizen, finds the intact head of young cyborg-girl in a vast pile of scrap. He takes her in and gives her a body and the name Alita.

Western movie people have weird taste. This is not good.
When I found the large volumes of this manga at one of the bookstores around my parents house, I purchased EVERY book available back then. (The Large volumes are not only dual tomes (two tomes in one), but also enlarged. Around 7" x 10" if I'm not wrong.)
I paid many hundreds of dollars for the whole package and I remember the face of the cashier when I brought all the book. I had 3 full bags filled to the brim. ;)
Decent first half. the rest is just a trainwreck. The art is great, though.
The art is some of the best I have ever seen in a manga. There is some ridiculously meticulous work to be seen in the first couple of volumes.
One of the greatest, most iconic sci-fi series of all time, this has been one of my favorite manga since I first read it in the 90's, when I found a few single issues in the 25 cent bin at my nearby comic book store. I still remember first hearing about James Cameron wanting to make a movie of it like 20 years ago, and when it actually came out and was actually really god damn good, man, dream come true. Really hope that sequel is in the works, the movie did well and was well regarded, and I know JC wants to continue at least through the Motorball arc.

Please go buy it if you are at all interested. As of this post, Comixology's monthly subscription allows you to read the ENTIRE first series of GUNNM/Battle Angel Alita(9 volumes) with just the subscription, so like 10 bucks I think to read the whole thing if you binge it in a month. Pretty goddamn good deal tbh. The sequel series only improve on the art, Last Order rivals One Punch Man's art quality a lot of the time, and the cybernetic designs are top shelf.
Couple pages in on another site, it says Viz right at the top of the page . Unless the licensing falls through (unlikely, this is a classic, even if the current license holder(s) lose their entire business they'll probably sell at least this off to someone else on the way out), those scans aren't allowed on here. Someone could just scanlate the whole thing from some other release like the original Japanese volumes... but who's going to bother? The entire thing is already uploaded on every other site in English. Get your adblocker up and running and dive in. Or buy it. Whatever floats your boat.
Off to Kissmanga i go.
Algún héroe que lo suba a español ;-;
It was published in English decades ago. Go read it on Kindle.
No English? Most people can't read this
Wow!!!!! 10 chapters with no pages, fabulous and FAST read!
why even bother to put it up here, if you can't fukin read it?!?!?!?!?
I'm pretty sure Battle Angel Alita has been licensed since before the internet existed :v
I suppose because it's licensed?
No chapters, wtf?
why are there no chapters?
