Battle Angel Alita: Last Order

I just picked up volume 7 the other day, anyone keeping up with this series?

I currently waiting for volume 7 to turn up in the mail. Not totally sure if I like the Last Order series or not. The original ending was fitting IMO, even if it felt a bit abrupt (due to the Yukito Kishiro feeling burned out) & Alita/Gally's background wasn't revealed. Last Order is slowly revealing her origins which is cool, but all the other stuff is doing my head in to be honest. Sad to say, I want Alita to go psycho & kill most of the other characters off.
I'll stick with it though because I love the artwork.

I felt the original ending was much too rushed as well, I'm enjoying the series. I also like the fact that he's using fan-submitted characters for both bit parts and major characters.

Last Order vol. 7 arrived yesterday, & I have to say 'woah'.., given the choice of knowing one's past, & remaining ignorant ("you are the cause of everyone's current pain"), I would have to say that ignorance is bliss.., poor Alita/Yoko..,

There's a lot of my old stuff up here in the New Hampshire house, I just found all the volumes of the old series. I was looking through one of the last volumes, Fallen Angel, and I found an awesome quote.

I really like this series.I thought the ending of the original series was rushed too.Outer space is a nice change from Zalem,every thought the rest of the universe is just as twisted (those baby-eaters were creepy)

I"m looking forward to when Gally will eventually go back to face Mbadi again.

Mbadi is a pretty awesome character, one of my favorites in the new series. I don't appreciate them completely ditching Figure Four though, I hope he makes an appearence soon.

I hope so too, I thought he was an awesomely cool character. Though how he'd fare in space would be most interesting IMO.
