Product Description

Now fans can own the critically acclaimed series available for the first time in high definition on Blu-ray!

The girls of the Social Welfare Agency are no ordinary children. They are the grisly 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 an extension of 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.


Il Teatrino (2008) is the belated sequel to Gunslinger Girl (2003), one of the the series that introduced the "murderous moppet" subgenre of anime. Badly injured adolescent orphans are brainwashed and given cybernetic implants that turn them into pint- sized assassins for a covert branch of the Italian government. The new adventures for the expanded cast involve plenty of mayhem, which Henrietta, Rico, Triela et al. perform with knives, pistols, machine guns, garrotes, martial arts--and cold-blooded good cheer. Their primary foe is Pinocchio, an equally icy but completely human assassin who is the adopted son of an underworld kingpin. Assisted by "freelance terrorists" Franco and Franca, he aids his father in nefarious schemes the girls must foil. The battle turns into a grudge match between Pinocchio and Triela that features such macabre howlers as, "How dare he shoot me with a gun Hilshire gave me!" Even more grotesque than the child-assassins themselves are the wistful boyfriend/daddy/big brother relationships they doggedly pursue with their "handlers." At times, Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino suggests Ninja Scroll restaged by the cast of Chobits, but these deadly dollies apparently have a fanbase in Japan, where an additional Gunslinger Girl OVA appeared in late 2008. (Rated TV MA: suitable for ages 16 and older: considerable violence, violence against women and children including torture, grotesque imagery, profanity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon
