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.

Background

Gunnm: Last Order was published in English as Battle Angel Alita: Last Order by Viz Media from July 23, 2003 to October 11, 2011. Kodansha Comics USA published the volumes 16-19 from December 4, 2012 to September 9, 2014 due to a change of publishers on the Japanese edition (Shueisha to Kodansha). The series was entirely republished by Kodansha as a five-volume omnibus edition from March 26, 2013 to December 9, 2014.

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

Sequels are a very tricky business in general. When following up an excellent work, it becomes very difficult to top, with a further instalment. Following up a master work like Battle Angel Alita, one of the greatest sci fi stories ever told, would require an insurmountable amount of talent. Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, that level of talent was not present, in Last Order, the follow up.

Last Order retcons the ending of BAA, and renders the events of the last 130 pages, redundant. Many would argue that the original ending was weak, and we needed more closure. I am not one of them, but I digress.

I was genuinely interested in BAA:LO after the....interesting read-through of its predecessor. This was mainly because I heard that LO was better in terms of story, character, art, action, etc. etc. However, does it /really/ live up to the hype I was fed? Read on to find out.

[Story - 3]

I should probably begin by touching on That Retcon: Yeah, this story basically edits out like the last chapter or so of the original story because it wouldn't exist otherwise. While I am still critical of how rushed the original ending was, I was glad that some of the concepts (Ketheres the Space City, Figure Four read more

The rambling story arc of the last series, with its ridiculous ending and dropped characters, was not without its flaws, but it was entertaining and well illustrated enough to hold my interest.

THE HYPE around this series is that it cleans up the mess the last one ended on- Which early on, it seems to, even if in a clunky, much less fun and much more violent and gory way than we might hope for. One has to admit- Kishiro is still a great visual artist and his gore hits as hard as ever, his line work and shading more sleek and evocative than the read more
