Get on with it Nov. 13 2011
By Robin A Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I've been reading BAA since 1994 and Kushiro used to be able to craft out characters. I use past tense here quite specifically. The reason I loved BAA was for character development and growth. This is just so bloated that there is not a lot happening other than explosions and movement.

Kushiro where are your fantastic characters? Their moments of true understanding and emotion? As echoed by others the ZOTT is just OTT.

200 pages for half a battle or maybe a quarter of a battle Oct. 28 2011
By Kid Kyoto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The longer Battle Angel Alita Last Order goes on, the slower it seems to get. While the last few books have taken 200 pages to depict a single fight, this book takes 200 pages to show half a fight. Or maybe just a quarter of a fight. Who knows how padded the final battle of the ZOT Tournament will be.

That being said it is a good battle, well thought out, exciting, with some cool twists and turns, even if everyone spends way too much time narrating how their fighting technique works.

The other good news is Kishiro is back at work. For a while he was fighting with his editor and the series went on hiatus but now it's continuing again.

So Last Order is pretty much where it has been for the last few years, big epic 200 pages battles and not much plot. So if you've come this far you'll probably enjoy Vol 15 as well.

EDIT - I had the chance to pick up the next few Japanese volumes and it looks like we have 2 more books before the ZOT Tournament finally ends and the plot starts to move again.

Beautiful Art, Incredible Depth in Combat Dec 10 2011
By Philosoma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Last Order 15 begins the match between Alita, Sechs, and Zazie against Zekka, Toji, and Rakan. Like many of Kishiro-san's works, this manga opens with a grim outcome of two of the Last Order's more cheerful characters. The reader is once again immediately drawn into the dark and violent world of Battle Angel Alita.

This manga has great artwork, some very interesting combat situations that the characters solve through trial and error, and a very great scene with Sechs and Zekka as their rivalry goes to even greater proportions.

As always, I'm appreciative that these are being translated and made available for purchase - great read and a must have for Battle Angel Alita and Kishiro-san fans.

The Battle Continues April 28 2013
By M. Gaffney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The last volume before the Battle Angel series switches publishers, this volume has been particularly difficult to get without paying an arm and a leg.

While the original series was Alita's journey through the ruined Earth, Last Order follows the "battle tournament" motif of the Rollerball arc, with the fate of the Earth at stake. Although this severely limits the series in many ways, we are still meeting a slew of interesting new characters as well as the history of the Battle Angel universe left unrevealed in the original series. This volume is concerned largely with the beginning of a match between Alita's team and a collection of independent karate masters, with the Earth's sovereignty as the prize.

The battles are interesting, but I'd really like to see what happens at the end of this tournament and beyond. I hope the series doesn't just end when this tournament does.
