Comment:
Based on the manga by Yukito Kishiro. The manga was named "Gunnm" in Japan, and the main character "Gally" (a cat was named "Alita"), however the North American English translation of the manga by Viz Communications changed the title to "Battle Angel Alita" and the protagonist's name to "Alita" (the cat was named "Gally").
