Adapts the first two volumes of the "Battle Angel Alita" manga.

The North American release by ADV Films was titled Battle Angel to coincide with Battle Angel Alita, the English-language title of the Gunnm manga given by Viz Comics. Gally, however, retains her original name in the English dub. The UK English dub by Manga Entertainment, as well as other dubbed versions in most of Europe, was released as Battle Angel Alita, with Gally renamed Alita.
