Battle Angel Alita Wiki

The Intro Arc is the first story arc of Battle Angel Alita.


While inspecting through the numerous trash heaps located throughout the Scrapyard for parts, a cyber physician named Daisuke Ido discovers the head and torso of a young female cyborg. He takes her back to his clinic and revives her; he proceeds to assemble a body for her with spare parts and gives her the name Alita. One night as he hunts targets down as part of his second job as a hunter warrior, Alita tags along and Ido discovers she knows the ancient martial art known as Panzer Kunst.
