10Alita's New Look

In the original Gunnm manga, Alita was a powerful cyborg with a mysterious past. She used several different android bodies during the series, including the imposing Berserker form and her purple Motorball body. Alita's face was always very realistic and human-like in the manga. Readers might only notice Alita's robotic hands or neck

Alita looks like a real-life manga character, so the effect is surprising at times.
