Gunslinger girl, when I first picked it up god knows how long ago, opened up a Pandora's Box of themes, ideas, sub-plots and so on.

In this book, a final conclusion is put into nearly every dynamic imaginable, bringing the series to a close without giving the reader a feeling of "what about...". The only thing that is slightly dissapointing in my opinion is how segregated the final chapters are: while it does give better understanding to the reader as to what all the characters are feeling, the whole thing could have been slightly more homogenous considering how all the characters were close during their time at the Social Welfare Agency.

No matter what the reader's opinion is, I'm sure that fans of this series all over will appreciate the character' swan song right up to the finale.

Thank you for everything Gunslinger Girl, you will be remembered.

HASH(0x9d5b4948) out of 5 stars A SECOND GENERATION July 16 2008
By Sesho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Social Welfare Agency believes that it has learned from its past mistakes and is ready to begin production of a second generation of cyborg assassins. There will be an initial run of 10 new girls with new design improvements. While the physical abilities of the new cyborgs will be less than that of the first, the new "conditioning" process will double their lifespan and make them easier to maintain. If this new system works, SWA has even started thinking about a way to make money by selling its cyborg girls to the highest bidder. The first candidate is Elizabeta Baranovskaya, a ballet dancer who is suffering from bone cancer in one of her legs. It's gotten so bad that the doctors say the only way to save her life is to amputate it! But nobody realizes that Elizabeta's dream of being a great ballerina is stronger than her will to live. If she loses her leg, in her eyes at least, her life is over. End of story. Meanwhile, Giuseppe and Jean take their fratello, Henrietta and Rico, on a rare vacation where they hope to get away from their job. Unfortunately, it ends up dragging up old memories as Jean is reminded of dead parents, dead sisters, and a fiance killed by Padania. He's not really a happy fellow.

Gunslinger Girl really stands out in the writing and characterization departments. That's not to say that Aida can't handle the action sequences as well. In fact, while there is only one short battle in this volume, it is handled exquisitely and cinematically by. The way the panels are laid out is something he couldn't do in earlier volumes. It's really cool to see someone mature not just artistically but as a writer too. The new girl, Petrushka, joins a cast that the reader was already very sympathetic to, but in a surprise move, her backstory is front and center. In the past, Aida has glanced over the lives of the girls before they became part of the SWA. Up to this point, it was merely a footnote, so it was a clever twist for Aida to use the newest member to begin some character exploration. Alessandro, Petrushka's handler, comes across as a bit of a jerk, but maybe he's insensitive simply because of the nature of his job. It's pretty creepy that the handler can actually tell the doctors of the SWA exactly what they want their girl to look like. I mean, the hubris of these guys to play God like they do. Unfortunately, if you like this series, it is currently in publishing limbo. This volume was published in December 2007 and there's been no word when ADV will put out the next book. After losing most of their new anime titles, I'm beginning to wonder if ADV will even be in business this time next year

HASH(0x9d5b499c) out of 5 stars HIS NOSE IS GROWING June 24 2005
By Sesho - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the Social Welfare Agency's agents has gone missing while on the trail of a mysterious new threat. I know it doesn't sound frightening, but the name of this threat is....Pinocchio! No, he's not the wooden puppet but seriously, his skills as a cold-blooded killer make him a match even for the Agency's cybernetically enhanced girls. He's been enlisted to help the terrorist forces of the Five Republics in their efforts to rebel against the government. The girls are sent into action against these forces and in an effort to protect an important political leader.

While action is never far away in Gunslinger Girl, since Volume 2 this series has taken a more quiet and less bloody route in its storytelling. This is a good thing. Here we get a focus on the forces that plot against the Agency and all sides of the conflict seem to get an even break in terms of motivation. It's very hard to see it in terms of bad guys and good guys (or gals). Since both sides are willing to do atrocious things to better their causes. Buy it for the action, the intrigue, and the poignant relationships. Highly recommended!

HASH(0x9d5b4dd4) out of 5 stars Great product Nov. 5 2014

I bought this book for my sister for Christmas and although I haven't read these books personally, my sister has and she tells me that it has a great story line and the illustrations are amazing.

After buying so many of these books for her, I'm thinking about reading the series now as well. I highly recommend! Came on time and it perfect shape.
HASH(0x9d5b4dbc) out of 5 stars Fantastic end to an amazing story. Aug. 10 2013

This volume contains the last few chapters to the Gunslinger Girl managa. Those who have read it online may find some minor deviations between the fan-translated work and the Seven Seas version. However, there is an additional epilogue after Jean leaves the family plot, but before the 'Esperanza' telescope ending that wraps up the lives of Rico, Petra, and Claes. This epilogue was not found in the other scanlation sites online, so it alone is worth the cost if you're a completist like I am.

Aside from that, there aren't any addition background pages, nor any character sketch pages, etc. It's just chapter 15, which means it's roughly half the pages of the early Seven Seas tomes.
HASH(0x9d958198) out of 5 stars Great series Oct. 4 2013
By M. Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the series, what can I see. It helps to have seen the DVDs. The first series was the best, the second was a little lower budget with quality, but then you are hooked on the story. The books cover more side stories and unlike so many manga series that go on forever, this plot is going somewhere and comes to an end.
