Meet Snev, a hapless motorballer nicknamed the "Crash King." Ever since a traumatic accident on the racetrack, Snev has been running on the edge of sanity. Only his best friend, a beautiful prostitute, still believes in him. Then, when Snev discovers his employers' ulterior motives for keeping him on the motorball circuit, he must muster the courage to confront both them and his inner demons!


Haisha was published in English as Ashen Victor, or Motorball Diaries From The World Of Battle Angel Alita by VIZ Media, first as part of VIZ Select Comics for a total of four issues in 1997, then collected in tankoubon format on January 31, 1999.

Yukito Kishiro was forced to end Battle Angel Alita prematurely in 1994 due to personal issues. However, he returned to his manga universe a year later with Ashen Victor; a short piece chronicling the exploits of Snev, the so called 'Crash King' of Motorball, the series' deadly extreme sport.

The story - 134 pages in length - is sufficiently developed, but could have been constructed more efficiently. The plot relies on a lot of coincidences, and I feel there was more room to explore Snev's psyche, along with the Scrapyard setting and Snev's place within it. Nevertheless, it's an enjoyable read and a lovely little detour ...
