How do you define "human"? That is a question that Gally has to answer for herself after she awakens in the sky city of Salem. When she learns that her former enemy Dr. Desty Nova has rebuilt and perfected her body, Gally seeks to find her friend Lou and re-access her own lost memories. But she is confronted with a tragic incident: Desty has revealed the Secret of Salem. At the age of 19, the people of Salem have their brains removed and replaced with computer chips. Learning this, the citizens go mad and begin to riot or commit suicide. Amidst the carnage around her and ghosts from her past, can Gally truly come to terms with herself?
So, i´ve you´ve read the first part, Gunnm, the frist thing youre gonna notice is the improvement on the art. Oh my god Alita looks so much cooler! The story progresses where the first part left it, and the stroy will fill up some holes that were left unknown from the previous volume, like Alita´s past, the history of the Scrapyard, Tiphares, etc. Personnally, one thing that i didnt like was how the previous combat style: martial arts, neat art of machines being ripped to pieces by a punch or kick, etc, was kinda replaced by a more "fantasy" kinda "special abilities" sorta combat. More like electromagnetic waves produced by a punch rather than the previous simple panzer kunst that i really liked. Anyway, the story still preserves its iconic cyberpunk vibe and the evolution of the art style and writting makes it much more "modern" when compared with Gunnm.
