Based on the manga by Kishiro Yukito, Battle Angel (or Gunnm as it is known in Japan) is the story of a girl named Gally who is found in a giant scrap heap. A benevolent cyberphysician, Ido, takes in her body and is shocked to see that she’s still alive. He revives her, only to learn she knows nothing about her past. However, in a moment of panic, Gally discovers that she has latent fighting abilities; in fact, she knows “Panzer Kunst,” an old and powerful fighting style that has since been lost. Gally reckons with her new identity and wants to become a Hunter-Warrior, but Ido vehemently opposes that idea. She also has to cope with her body, which is more metal than flesh, as she develops feelings of affection for a buy named Hugo.
