Editorial Reviews

The girls of the Social Welfare Agency are no ordinary children. They are the grizzly remains of human wreckage pieced back together with cybernetic implants and trained to kill by the government. The oldest, Triela, pursues her targets with a ferocious enthusiasm – unwilling to settle for less than total annihilation. Her mirror in this bloody stalemate is Pinocchio – a shell of a boy raised as an assassin by the FRF – a terrorist faction at war with the SWA. Cold and cruelly efficient, he wields sharpened steel as though it were his own hand. Once human, these shattered souls have become murderous machines with only vague recollections of what it meant to be real – and a brutal compulsion to be the last killer standing.

Gunslinger Girl is one of those anime properties that can easily be mistaken as being a gimmicky show. You know the type; the premise itself is so eccentric (in this case cybernetic-children assassins) that there's little need to bother with such details as say a good story or decent script. However, and as I had to discover for myself, Gunslinger Girl isn't nearly as one-dimensional. In fact it's a pretty darn well rounded property containing everything from political struggles to warring factions, and emotional overload to slight supernatural elements.

Though technically based on the series sequel, Gunslinger Girl IL Teatrino breaks the prose down into two episodes (each with a runtime of 17.5 minutes). The collection spans a single DVD packaged within a standard size clamshell DVD case. The total runtime comes in at 35 minutes and extras include an interview with a member of the Japanese vocal cast (the voice of Hilshire), textless opening and closing themes, and a host of Funimation trailers.

Language options are standard sub & dub meaning the viewer has the choice of viewing the OVA in either the original Japanese dialog (stereo) or with an English dub (5.1 Dolby Surround) and the option of turning on English subtitles beneath either track.

Finally the program wears an appropriate TV MA (mature, 17+) rating due to violent themes, gunfights, blood and a bit of gore. There is however no nudity and the foul language is kept to a minimum.

The story follows the exploits of the Social Welfare Agency and their ongoing exploits (missions) using mechanically bodied adolescents.

THIS is a rip off if You own il teatro you have these 2 OVA's-I cant believe they had the gaul to release this 35 min. that is on the 2nd edition/season of Gunslinger Girl-They actually LIE on the back cover saying that Triela(the oldest "Girl)is having final showdown w/ pinnochio-which never happened

These are 2 OVA episodes of the series. Normally an OVA may go off on another branching storyline but this just feels like a continuation of Il Teatrino (which I guess it is).

So why are these 2 episodes seperate? I have no idea but they're still the girls you know and probably love by now. Story focuses a bit more on Rico and Jean(?) which was needed and a decent amount of action. Gave it 4 stars because it just wasn't long as I'm used to (they could have saved these for Il Teatrino 2).

Also, you get to see how Triela is holding up after that duel with Pinocchio.
Can't wait for more!! If you're already collecting this series, it's a no-brainer. If you're not, what the hell are you waiting for?!

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the original series of Gunslinger girls, so when I saw this disc I knew I had to watch it, for me the only problem was that I did not realise that there was another series of Gunslinger Girl, which come before this disc, which meant that I did not really catch what was going on, so I did not enjoy it as much as I thought I would. So if you are thinking of getting this disc make sure you watch series 2 first.

Gotta have this if you're a Gunslinger Girl fan! This is a good wrap up, with a very good focus on the Rico/ Jean duo.
