In a dump in the lawless settlement of Scrapyard, far beneath the mysterious space city of Zalem, disgraced cyber-doctor Daisuke Ido makes a strange find: the detached head of a cyborg woman who has lost all her memories. He names her Alita and equips her with a powerful new body, the Berserker. While Alita remembers no details of her former life, a moment of desperation reawakens in her nerves the legendary school of martial arts known as Panzer Kunst. In a place where there is no justice but what people make for themselves, Alita decides to become a hunter-killer, tracking down and taking out those who prey on the weak. But can she hold onto her humanity as she begins to revel in her own bloodlust?

Return of the Killing Angel in Deluxe Edition!!
Kondansha have outdone themselves with this incredible re-release of Battle Angel Alita! The quality is beyond my expectations, this is a beautiful/elegant hardback & the pages are exceptionally high-quality the images pop so vividly. I'm in love with the series/universe of Gunnm & you can tell Kondansha is as well with the love/care they put into this product. I look forward to the next volumes 2-3! I also hope BAA:Last Order will get the same deluxe edition re-release treament!!
A perfect way to start the Battle Angel Alita series

I am new to the Alita series, and was intrigued by the trailer of the new movie coming out.
This is a perfect edition to get started on the Alita series. This hardcover edition has big beautiful pages to really see the great artwork. The hardcover itself is vibrant, well made, and looks great on your bookshelf! There are also colored pages here and there as well as what looks to be the original cover artwork interspersed between chapters. This edition is well worth the investment.

A really nice series in an equally nice format

This series is fantastic. The artwork, story and characters all stood out. It may seem a little pricey compared to other manga titles even taking account for the fact that it's hardcover and a deluxe edition that collects two volumes but the books themselves are taller and wider which brings out the scale and detail in the artwork. In my humble opinion it's more than a fair trade and one that I only wish more manga titles of this kind would employ. My only complaint is that the volume ends exactly one chapter too early to finish the second arc. All in all still a great buy and worth every penny.
