  1. Yeah, pretty much the same comments as before. Jealousy, “not for me”, happy for you, blah, blah, blah ๐Ÿ˜€

    Almost makes it sound like you’re pregnant and I’m a jealous spinster, lol!

    1. Hahahah next thing you know, this turns into a psychological thriller plot. Your jealousy transforms into envy, your envy gets fuelled with hate over time, you devise a plan to ruin my life, I turn miserable, etc etc ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

      1. Heck, who told you my master plan? I swear, a villain can’t catch a break these days ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Or…..

        We could turn out to be long lost brothers and we both have a gift for reading. So it gets turned into a tv show about brothers, who read. Now THAT sounds like a money show!!! My goodness, the possibilities are almost endless…

        Wow. It is way too early for this level of silliness from me…

        1. Maaaaan, I thought I was going to be the villain… Isnโ€™t that how plot twists work? ๐Ÿ˜‚

          Brilliant!!! Iโ€™d set it during WWII just to give it an emotional edge to the already emotional story. Weโ€™ll be millionaires. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

          Same here… What is going on… ๐Ÿ˜‚

          1. Hahahahaah!

            Well, you just ruined that plot plan! We would have switched roles in the last act and turned the whole story on it’s head.

            I like those additions. Specially that “millionaires” bit. I could use some money ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. Yes, you definitely have me sold on this. But that is never hard for you to do haha. You really must stop, or I will hold you responsible when they have to come dig my body out from under the mountain that was my TBR ๐Ÿ˜‚ I do love that this volume really pushes her to her limits as a character! Growth is so important in any series or collection. And no complaints on continually improving illustrations and art. Fantastic review ๐Ÿ–ค

    1. Hahaahah what can I say? It was that good! I’m glad to share the truth with everyone and that your interest in this series has only been getting stronger and stronger with each review. ๐Ÿ˜› There’s only 2 more deluxe editions before it completes the original series, but then there’s two sequels, Battle Angel Alita: Last Order (which is completed) and Battle Angel Alita: Mars Chronicle (which is ongoing). I originally only intended to check the original run in preparation of the movie adaptation, but at this rate I’ll probably turn into a hardcore fan and check out everything related to the character hahah There’s also the anime if you ever want to watch her in action first and read later. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for reading, Danielle! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. This is the volume I havenโ€™t bought yet (but that said…I havenโ€™t even started with reading this yet anyway), but it sounds like things are only getting better and better. As you know I love this character, and the storyline (I read the series partially before these deluxe series came out) and itโ€™s just one of the best mangas ever. Glad to see you are enjoying it so much yourself: and of course wonderful post! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

    1. If you’re collecting the deluxe editions, then rest assured, you won’t be disappointed by these hahah Hope you’ll get the chance to go through this soon (or save them up to binge them closer to the live-action adaptation). I’m definitely curious to see where things will go next though. If it can actually get better, I’ll turn out to be a real hardcore fan of this character/series. Thanks for reading, Michel! ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yes, I am collecting them (but then again I am collecting the entire Alita series, I already have the follow up to this series ) Iโ€™m really looking forward to starting with these. And as for the live action movie: also canโ€™t wait! Hopefully it will turn out good ๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. I’ve read this years ago and you made me think I wasn’t paying enough attention ๐Ÿ™‚ I was burning through volumes and volumes of manga then, maybe time will come to carefully re-examine the best of them. I started last year, with GitS, but I’m adding Alita to the list ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hahahah I do tend to read between the lines even more than others would when I see great writing/story-telling. I find that any creation that can get the reader to think beyond the plot is one that is pure quality. Would be nice to revisit it if it’s been a pretty long time since you last read this series. Did you also check out Battle Angel Alita: Last Order and Mars Chronicle, or did you content yourself with just the original run? I’ll be checking out GitS really soon too. Pretty excited to see what the original story was like.

  6. I refuse to turn green with envy! Haha! I havenโ€™t even started the series yet and the live action is coming out. I agree with Danielle, you are burying me under a mountain of my TBRs! Love it when an author improves with each piece of work, excitement mounts at the expectation! โ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ Awesome review!

    1. Hahahahah it’s going to take some serious self-control from y’all cause it won’t end with this beauty! ๐Ÿ˜€ I believe the live-action is due closer to the end of 2018, so there’s still some time to check out the first volume, at least! ๐Ÿ˜‰ There’s always the anime of course, if you have a preference or are in a rush! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m just glad to finally see why this series is so loved and is considered a classic for many! Can’t wait to see how it’ll all “conclude” (even if there are sequels to this series)! Thank you so much for reading, Dani! โค
