I just watched both seasons for the 2nd time. The drop in animation quality, music quality and complete change of cast for the 2nd season is so jarring that it's still hard to assess the quality of it. It was compelling enough after adjusting, but I can't tell if it's only nostalgia for the 1st season.
Please let me know how I feel about season 2 /a/.
>Season 2 is acceptable
If the budget and everything else was carried over to the 2nd season, would it still only be acceptable? Is the weakness the content or loss of everything else?
Think carefully if you want to preserve your 1st season memories or taint them.
i haven't listened to the s1 op since having partition problems on my old drive
had r1 discs on there too
i should stop being lazy and try to recover that shit
haven't seen s2, didn't know it was the mushishi studio
The manga is worth reading, despite its ending.
Gunslinger Girl is a textbook e ample of why manga pjs should just take their license cheque and be grateful and never, ever, be let anywhere near the anime studio. Yu Aida's control freakery (he's credited as "Total Supervisor" of Il Teatrino) meant only some cheap studio would tolerate him and made the show the stilted disaster it was.
Here, pre and post timeskip.
Huh, maybe it wasn't confirmed. It's not mentioned in the last chapter, anyway. I wonder why I was so sure of it. Was it perhaps in his letter to Roberta?
I was devastated reading the last twenty or so chapters but it was still a great read. I highly recommend the manga if you enjoyed the anime (S1 or S2)
Pic related is from near the end of the manga.
At least Claes finally got to be badass.
Triela > Henrietta > Claes > Petrushka > Rico > Angelica
What made you fall for Triela?
For me it was one line in S1 when the investigator was talking to her in her room and trying to figure out the nature of devotion and she said that she didn't know where the drugs ended and the love began.
In that one line I saw a thinking creature who could engage in self analysis.
I enjoyed watching her relationship with Hilshire mature over the course of the series.
Triela getting angry with Hilshire when he carries out an assassination without her help and gets injured was maybe my favourite part in the manga.I also love how self-aware Triela seems to be yet accepts her fate, as cruel as it is.
Just skimming through the whole manga again is making me tear up ;_;
The fact that she's so mature, nurturing and has so much self-insight while being so vulnerable. I like her relationship with Hillshire and I loved the chapters about her backstory, and the way she handled it. Plus delicious brown and longcoats suit her.
My absolute favorite moment in the manga right here. Petrushka was my 2nd favorite.
