Ashen Victor from Yukito Kishiro

I just bought the Ashen Victor: Motorball Diaries from the world of Battle Angel Alita and have to say, Kishiro made a great mini-series. I just loved the darker feeling I got from it compared to Battle Angel and liked the characters. Has anyone else here bought the manga and what were your impressions of it?

P.S. If anyone who hasn't read it is interested in the plot, it's a story about a motorballer named Snev, nicknamed the "Crash King" who has never finished a race since he started, always crashing. Snev finds out about other motives his team has for keeping him on the track and has to face enemies within and without.

For me, I find it interesting because Snev is not really "the hero" of the story. Like you said, it's a spin-off of the Gunnm/Battle Angel universe where Motorball game is take place. Hell, the ending was surprising somewhat.
