Comment:
Although both releases consisted of 9 graphic novels, the original Viz releases and the original Japanese releases differ slightly in where they are split. In Japan Gunnm was split into roughly equal length volume, while Viz released Alita in story arcs. There are 8 volumes in the story, the third volume is split into two graphic novels. Viz's reprints follow the Japanese volume breaks.
