Battle Angel Alita Wiki

NG Life Theater (NG人生劇場 NG Jinsei Gekijō?) is a series of gag strips, mostly in yonkoma format, that appear in the Battle Angel Alita: Last Order graphic novels. They typically parody events depicted in the volumes and thus are not canon. "NG" is an acronym for "No Good".

Viz Media originally titled the series "Bloopers" in Angel of the Innocents, then changed the title to "Catechism of Life" in Angel Eternal. It was renamed "NG Theatre" beginning with Angel of Protest, which remained until Last Angel Standing, when it became "NG Life Theater". Kodansha Comics USA has changed the name to "NG Theater".

Similar yonkoma gag strips appeared in the Battle Angel Alita graphic novels, but only singly in each volume and were not given a series name. They were not originally included by Viz Media in the initial printing of Battle Angel Alita, but were included in the Viz Media Edition along with the tech notes.
