Based on the first volume of the acclaimed Battle Angel Alita manga by Yukito Kishiro, this anime is a well-done adaptation. The animation is clean and well colored and the character designs are very faithful to Kishiro's drawings. The names have been changed though, so those who have read the manga may be a bit disoriented. It is strongly encourage anyone who watches this tape to acquire the manga. It not only tells the story told in this video in more depth, but continues with the much larger adventure of Gally/Alita with some of the best art in all of manga.

Volume 1: "Battle Angel" Plot Summary:

While scavenging in a junkyard, Doc Ido discovers a badly damaged cyborg among the piles of refuse. Being a highly skilled doctor, he picks up the cyborg, revives her and restores her to functionality.

Unfortunately, she has no memory of her life prior to her discovery in the junkyard.

Soon enough, she becomes part of dark, mysterious and nearly lawless world that Doc Ido lives in and joins him by assuming the role of a bounty hunter. As events unfolds, Gally reveals fearsome fighting skills and the mystery of her past deepens.
