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.

Re: Is gunslinger girl a seinen?

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?

Re: Is gunslinger girl a seinen?

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.

Re: Is gunslinger girl a seinen?

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.

Re: Gunslinger Girl Volume 4

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.

Re: Gunslinger Girl Volume 4

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.

Re: Gunslinger Girl Volume 4

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.

Re: Gunslinger Girl Volume 4

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.

Re: Gunslinger Girl Volume 4

hi, thanks for the Edited Mangas! it's been long awaited.

by the way, is it possible to upload it to somewhere else? my isp uses a proxy server and it's hard to download anything from rapidshare...
