The Social Welfare Agency in Italy is not what it seems. Yes, it rescues young girls who have been brutalized, but it then brainwashes them and turns them into ruthless killers for an elite and secret counter-terrorism unit for the Italian government.

Enter a young girl named Henrietta. After witnessing the savage murder of her family and barely surviving, the Agency takes her in and repairs her injuries using the latest in cybernetic technology. All traces of Henrietta's past are wiped from her mind, as she becomes one of the Agency's most lethal assassins.

Story: 5/10
Firstly, I would like to point out the unique setting, Italy during the "Years of Lead", that’s setting up for something good. Or so I though, it didn't live up to expectations (or the MAL score). The whole plot feels disjointed. The start meandered for a while, introducing the characters and there dynamic while hinting at the antagonists. Those antagonists is swiftly and suddenly discarded, it's quite jarring. ...

I spend a lot of time reading manga at a local Barns & Noble. After reading what I wanted to read, then reading what I didn't think I would hate, then reading what they had just because they had the whole series, I started reading Gunslinger Girl. I admit, I did not have high hopes for it, having flipped through the pages often and always putting it back on the shelf, but today I decided to read it.

The first thing that drew me in was the art. With a lot of works having pretty shoddy graphics, even after being serialized into a ...
