Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino was made by Artland in 2008, adapting chapters from manga volumes 3-6.

But overall, there are so many things that get in the way of making a decent show, and that goes beyond just the animation and audio budget. In my opinion, the show didn't make good use of the limited time it had.

Lack of Focus
A lot all of characters have conflicts that I felt didn't receive adequate time to ...
