Salt & Honey

Jan 4, 2018

Sloane and Leslie talk about one of their favorite manga, Yukito Kishiro's Battle Angel Alita/GUNNM. This episode features spoilers for Battle Angel Alita and Battle Angel Alita: Last Order, but we also get very in-depth as to why it's such an important title for both of us, and how science fiction can tap into feelings about what it means to have consciousness. Talking points: localization of manga in the '90s, cyborg autonomy, robots with feelings.

The first deluxe edition volume of Battle Angel Alita is out through Kodansha Comics.
