Yukita Kishiro has the kind of graphic style that makes the frames magnetic.

By now, her character is very well fleshed out and we really do care for her in many ways.

This was the first Battle Angel Alita book I ever read, borrowing it from the library.

Format: Paperback
Troubled by her loss,Alita decides to runaway and leave it all behind and join the circuit of Motorball.The story is compelling and suspencfull and will leave you crawling back for more.She meets a couple of friends and with her skills of the Panzer kunst,she was able to rise to the top and challenge the champ himself.Ido,heart-broken by Alita's leave, decides to go after her only to realize that she set her mind on this goal and is not easily persuaded to return,but Ido forms an alliance with the champ in an attempt to return her.This books(vol.3+4)aren't as gory as the others but the art is amazing, full of speed lines and battles at 200klmiles!I recommend number 4 over 3(unless you wish to read the whole story),but if you want drama go for #2.You will not be disappointed.
ps.I do love flan!!kyhahahaha!!

Format: Paperback
This is the fourth Alita collection, although it is officially the last of part three of the series. As such, it marks the culmination of Alita's identity quest into the world the motorball. What Alita has discovered is that use of her special cyborg battle training skills can trigger sudden flashbacks to the days before Doc Ido reassembled her as Alita. These come as peak experiences when the doughty fighter must push her body to withstand what no biological body could.
We get to see to of these battles. The first Alita uses to test both herself and the cyborgs with whom she is considering teaming. This is an opportunity for both melee battles and some fine humorous moments when things do not quite happen as planned. The second struggle is the final confrontation with Jashugan. This we know will end up in a one-on-one confrontation between titans. The reader is entitled to, and gets, all the action art and surprises of which Yukito Kushiro is capable. Who wins isn't important at the transcendent moment, only that both have used up all that they had.
I'm probably going to go on and on about the art for this series until I run out of manga to review. Yukita Kishiro has the kind of graphic style that makes the frames magnetic. The story, the diversity of characters and the introspective twists are an important part of this manga, and keep it from ever being a simpleminded hack and disassemble story. Something deeper is going on, and we see it evolve one small piece at a time.

Format: Paperback
This was the first Battle Angel Alita book I ever read, borrowing it from the library. But, since I read 1,2, and 3 AFTER this, I've liked the motorballs better. I think this is a kewl book, I wish I'd happened to read #1 first, tho, but this all works out. I loved it! Simply, Alita is finishing what she started with motorball, what with racing and winning, winning, losing, whataver. Her showdown with Jashugan kinda leaves u, uh... confused (at least it did me V_V) and it never says more. THE REASON I GAVE THIS A 4-STAR RATING IS BECAUSE... the index page (copyright, idex, etc.) is the one of TEARS OF AN ANGEL! what's up with that?? i just realized that one day, looking to see what part it was. and that {is odd.}

Format: Paperback
In Angel of Victory, Atila sets about her plan to challenge the champion of the motorball circuit, Emporer Jashugan. This book is fast-paced and full of action, but it may leave newcomers to the series a bit confused as there is no real recapping of the past story. For those who do know the story, the book sucks you in and plays with your emotions, making you realy feel sympathy for the characters. Such is average fare for Kishiro's work.

In battling Jashugan, she gets flashbacks of her training of the Panzer Kunst, the martian arts of cyborgs. She has known that through battle she can find her true self, will this battle with Jashugan help find the answers of seal her doom?

the Battle Angel series is GREAT! The art is sooo beautiful and well done!! And the plot lines are so realistic and believable that you can really get into it. The author/artist is obviously very intelligent, because so of the things in the books are so interesting!!! I think everyone should read this series.
