Like Alita I'm not really sure if the final part of the battle was real or not. But, anywyay, it was a cool fight. More importantly, we have learned what may be her real name.. Yoko.

Jashugan was a real man.

Jashugan was beyond epic. The first part of the chapter where he was just annihilating everyone, and when he cut Zafal in half... just amazing. The panel placement and the amount Kishiro chose to display; it read in slow motion, at least to me. And then when Jashugan rose from the flames... whew. Really brilliant stuff, can't praise this chapter enough.

Was rooting for Jashugan the entire time, not merely to beat Alita, but he seemed like a really genuine decent human in the midst of everything that happens in the scrapyard.

Pulling off the ultimate technique as his last action, truly the champion.

Hoping Shumira and Umba will join the gang, imagine the uses Ido would have for Umbas' arms.

This whole Motorball arc has been amazing. Really awesome characters and tons of great moments. Really looking forward to seeing where Alita goes next though I'll definitely miss these motorball characters if they end up falling to the wayside.

I've lived this arc. Great characters, specially Jashugan, the Champ.

I must say I prefer Alita to Yoko.

Nobody mentions Tiger, I quite liked this desperate sportman, who died after supporting Gally and fighting his idole.

4/5 Jashugan raising above mere cyborgs in his final moment was very well rendered.

We have learned what may be her real name.. Yoko.

At least Yoko comes from somewhere. I still don't understand what the word Alita had to be chosen as Gally's US name (it doesn't even sound americanized).
