Has any one read/seen the manga/anime gunslinger girl? I think it is one of the best animes out there and the manga as usuall is at least as good if not better. I am not sure what category it belongs to because it has all the guns and action that boys are interesteed in but it's main charatcters are cute little girls and the stories are a lot more emotional than anyone reading the tittle might be able to imagine.

anyway, I have seen all 13 episodes of the anime and tottaly loved it and then Istarted reading the manga but I had to stop at volume three because i could not find anymore scanlated chapters, at least not in english. If you know anyplace I can get my hands on scans after volume 3 (starting at chapter 18 would be coolest) could you please post a link or something.

According to what I've seen, Gunslinger Girl is classified as Seinen, under the sub category of Shoujo ^^ Seinen is defined as being a genre for young men/teen boys with a more developed plotline and a little bit less of an emphasis on action ^^ Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong XD

I don't know where you coudl get it, though. have you tried #lurk on IRC?

Well, that's for the manga. If you guys wants it on anime, here's the link. Gunslinger Girl with a lot of other anime like FMA, Air gear, Grenadier and many more are hosted here for DIRECT DOWNLOAD. Yes, and for free as well.

Note: If it state it's Offline and won't return, that means that's it. Some of these anime disallow the use of Download Managers.

Hope that helps.

Thanks a lot bax, I have seen the entire anime once already but I never downloaded it and then the site that was hosting the streams practically died. I hated myself for not trying to download them when I had the chance, so thanks a lot.

(Side note: Not entirely sure it is seinen, judging from the magazine it was published in and the other series that were also published in the magazine.

Looks more like a shounen style magazine to me.)

Sintendo

Not really shounen since the target audience isn't really gender specific, and it doesn't contain lots of action...

well actually the lolis with guns thing might appeal to guys out there, but that's not the kind of shounen that's commonly referred to...

I just think that GSG is so unique in its story that It can't be classified into one single genre of manga.

We're using shounen/seinen as a general age specification in this particular instance. Or at least I am. If it's not specifically aimed at 18-25 year olds, then it belongs in this section. That magazine it was serialized in from what I could tell wasn't aimed at the somewhat older audience that seinen implies, which is why I was mentioning that it probably does belong in this section.

In my opinion, shounen and seinen are merely umbrella genres that encompass a target age range.

You are my new hero. I don't know why God has looked favorably apon me these deys but it seems like people are suddenly coming out of the blue to continue scanlating all the dropped mangas that used to be my favorites.
A thousand thank yous, and if I suddenly hit it big and become a millionaie tomorow i will surly remember you.

My thanks...it is indeed my top 10 manga (same goes for the anime, it's rare to find both really good).
As for what type of manga it is, I'd say it's for both genres (not for young kids of course - guns and blood never are), don't ever be fooled by the impression of young girls holding guns. All it meant was a sad touch as intended by the mangaka.

Sigh, we started up the same project for the same reason and just got done with c 18 (not released, but qc:ed and everything) and have cleaned 19 when I notice this. Will have to look over if we will continue it or not... Will post more info later today/tomorrow when the other person comes online and we have discussed it.

Thanks. :)

I just today stumbled upon the first episode of season 2 of Gunslinger girl. It was hard for me to contain myself. One of my all time favorite animes was going to continue. well to tell you the truth I ended up being a little disappointed.
It is a different studio doing the animation and these people seem to have kids as their target audience. I also very much missed "the light before we land" as the opening song (though the new one they have could be rather decent after some getting used to).

Anyway, if you absolutely loved the first show and wait faithfully for new releases of the manga then I am sure you will want to check this out (even if it ends up being a little disappointing). I know I will watch every episode they release, I have simply grown too attached to the characters. so if there is anyone out there like me...

Here (http://anijunkie.com/index.php?option=com_seyret&catid=273&Itemid=301) is a link.
p.s.: When you have seen it let me know what you think.

In the intervening months, the Raws of 64-66 have been posted (67 was up for a bit of time, then it went down for some reason).

I'm part of the group currently scanlating it at Cyborg Central (http://mangahelpers.com/s/cyborg-central). We released 60-64 since June and we're finishing up the rest.

Can anyone confirm this upcoming Chapter 83 spoiler that someone posted on WikiPedia Gunslinger Girl Characters.

Chapter 83: Henrietta commits suicide after accidentally killing Jose.

I really like this Manga but up to date information on its releases are very difficult to find.

Alright just reviving this thread a bit since the latest chapters are really heading towards the end of this series. I want to know what people think of the developments so far? Especially in light of the impending wipe out of the social welfare agency? The suicides of Henrietta and Jose IMO seemed pretty inevitable since her time was basically sooner rather than later - she is after all a first generation cyborg - so contrary to other opinions I think this choice was going to happen, and it pretty much is Jose's punishment. Seeing Claes soon to get back into action is something I definitely want to see.

On a sidenote does anyone LOVE the chapter titles picked by the author, namely the mythology ones? She really manages to capture its idea or essence well and transpose it to her manga chapters in a manner that impresses me.
