Battle Angel Alita (manga)
Go back to Battle Angel Alita main page
If you match a map in the manga with a real map, you'll find the city of Scrap Yard is today's Kansas City. The floating city was originally named Salem in the Japanese version, but US version renamed it to Tiphares. There are many other biblical references in GUNNM (Gabriel, Jacob's Ladder, Melchizedek, etc.)
The main character is named differently in manga and anime - that is due to conflict between the mangaku and animators - mangaku did not like the first two episodes of anime and tried to stop that production, but animators released it in US under a different name - Battle Angel Alita.
