Welcome to the Anime Nostalgia Podcast, a mix of anime & manga history, reviews, and talks with other fans on titles and aspects of fandom from the 80s, 90s, and beyond.

With all the talk about the upcoming live action Ghost in the Shell movie, what better time to revisit another (slightly less popular) 90s series about a kick-ass cyborg who sometimes questions what it means to be human! My friend Rachel from RachelLovesComics joins me to talk about Battle Angel Alita: the various incarnations, the sometimes surprisingly relevant themes throughout, and even the 80′s style poofy hair (even though it was the 90s.)
