Yukito Kishiro’s long-running science fiction series has been on hiatus since June 2010 after the author had a serious dissagreement with his editor over changes that were being made to previous volumes.
Last Order had then been running in Shueisha’s monthly Ultra Jump magazine until Kishiro decided to halt production on the manga.
After several months it was announced that Kishiro would resume Last Order in Kodansha’s Evening magazine. With the arrival of this year’s 8th issue of Evening, Galley/Alita’s story continues at last.
The change in publisher’s is nice for the fans as Last Order will now be published bi-weekly in Evening rather than monthly as it was in Ultra Jump.
Gunnm/Battle Angel Alita: Last Order is published in the United States by VIZ.
