Following last episode, Jon goes on a deep dive into the Alita franchise and having returned from the depths gives an account of the sights he has witnessed. In this interview style episode, the brothers discuss and contrast the new movie, Alita: Battle Angel, with the OVA and the manga renditions. Jon also gives an account of the events in Last Order and Alita’s origins in Martian Chronicles.
For the first review of 2019, the Aniki brothers go retro and topical with the original Battle Angel Alita OVA ahead of the release of the Alita movie. Set in a dystopian, cyber future where humans are agumentable, replaceable, and disposable, Alita follows the story of an android rescued from a trash heap and her quest to find meaning in life by becoming a hunter-warrior. Along the way, she falls for Yugo, a man with a dream to escape from the refuse and make his way to Zalem, a real yet mystical land of opportunity. Also featuring: Mob Psycho 100, Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Magical Girl Spec-Ops Asuka, and Boogiepop and Others.
