Synopsis

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.

Background

Gunslinger Girl had six volumes published in English by ADV Manga from December 29, 2003 to December 11, 2007, following several periods of hiatus. After the publisher went defunct, Seven Seas picked up the license, republishing the entire series with new translations and in an omnibus edition (with the exception of the last volume) from February 1, 2011 to July 2, 2013.

I walked in thinking I was going to get some otaku fetish for 100 chapters. Wrong. This series turns into a whole different monster by the 8th or so volume. I would say it even deconstructs the manga itself. It became way more adult and mature for my taste. But, I can tolerate mature stuff when I am reading. It made this series very engaging.

Gunslinger girls volume one looks nothing like Gunslinger girls volume 15. It's actually brilliant and well thought out writing that overarching led the whole series. I would say, if you get bored of it, keep reading. That piece of read more

The first season of the Gunslinger Girl series really struck a chord with me. The art style, characters, music and setting pulled me in. I had little experience reading manga at the time. Luckily for me, the original series was being republished by Seven Seas. I sought out the first omnibus volume and, after blowing through it, began picking up the latter omnibuses.

Having been first exposed to the television series, it was a real treat to find a much more detailed backstory given to the world of Gunslinger Girl. How the Social Welfare Agency came to be, what drove Jean and Jose to hunt Padania read more

I once asked my friend “why don’t you like Dragonball Z” and he replied “because back in primary school (when it was very popular) I thought the aliens were creepy and disgusting.” That is how I feel about this manga, I just really dislike the idea of turning people into mechanical beings and on top of it trying to produce a drama manga out of it, simply because is cruel and they’re only expressing feeling programed into their heads, and hence I found it very hard to connect with cyborgs especially Henrietta and Rico. Well, at least that’s how I felt half the time, but read more

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 read more
