Synopsis

After being killed by the doll-bomb in the original manga series, Alita is resurrected by Desty Nova. The Tipharean scientist reconstructs her brain - bringing forth fragments of her past - and gives her a new body that is able to fully utilize her incredible strength. As she awakens, Alita finds herself in a devastated Tiphares, where a battle between Tiphareans with brain-chips and those without is raging. At the same time, the automatic security system goes on a rampage, killing anything that moves. Last Order takes Alita's adventures into outer space, as she encounters old associates and meets new faces - both friend and foe - and begins to piece together memories of her past.

NOTE BEFORE READING: This is a review of Gunnm: Last Order, thus it takes into account that you have already read the first series.

The highly anticipated sequel to the unbelievably fantastic original series of Gunnm. This sequel is fairly controversial due to it's change of pace and narrative to the original story, however, I still feel this is an outstanding addition to the universe.

Art: 8

The first thing you will notice is the art style change. Gally looks different than she did before. Yes, she has bigger lips and nose but her original design, while memorable and sexy, was more like a perfect doll than anything read more

Many anime and manga follow old formulae and often wonder a predictable path, but Battle Angel refuses to fall fowl of cliches and does its best to plough its own furrow. The Last Order series of novels typifies this trend by taking the reader not just out of this world, but into the very essence of existence itself. It even turns the playing field into a character in its own right while still giving the audience a semblance of normality in the form of a useful supporting cast and overwhelming monsters to fight in a straight forward struggle of good versus evil.

The first thing I noticed about Last Order was the change in art style. What used to be heavily stylized character designs became very boring and unoriginal. I really want to stress this because the first Battle Angel, despite some mediocre art in the beginning of the series, still managed to look freakin' awesome! The art style is kind of retained for the first volume, but it changes fast and unexpectedly. Suddenly Alita looks like she has a horse face and frog lips, and so does pretty much everyone else who looks human. They offset this by having significantly more robots and cyborgs that don't read more

This is one of the best series I have ever read. If you love a deep thought provoking story with amazing character development and action packed fight scenes then this is exactly what you are looking for. As Battle Angel Alita deals with the question of, "who am I?" Last Order addresses, "what makes us a human?" as you are constantly bombarded with this dilemma thought out the series.

Although the story does not follow suit to the original Battle Angel Alita series it does incorporate many of the events that happened in it with flash backs to them. Because of this you are read more
