GUNNM: Kasei Senki
The third part of Battle Angel Alita/Gunnm. The manga is a direct sequel to Last Order but also serves as a prequel for the series as a whole.
For centuries, war has raged on the dusty, red surface of Mars. This apocalyptic crucible will produce the solar system’s most fearsome warrior, Alita. But for now, that warrior is just a little girl named Yoko. The future and past of the battle angel fan out across the reaches of space in the final chapter of one of the greatest sci-fi epics of all time!
