I just watched both seasons for the 2nd time. The drop in animation

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, but season 1 is amazing and when you rewatch it you'll only rewatch season 1
>>
>hyped for s2
>subs group got dmca'd/series licensed in the middle of it and dropped
Fuck that shit.
>>
I've only seen season 1 not 2.
>>
The S1 art style was something special
>>
>>151583815
>Season 2 is acceptable
Alright.

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?

>>151584331
Think carefully if you want to preserve your 1st season memories or taint them.
>>
Sad that we wont see the final arc in the nuclear plant animated.Those deaths are really something.
>>
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

The manga is worth reading, despite its ending.
>>
>>151583771

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.

>if everything was carried over
It would only be slightly worse (because Henrietta is best girl)

>>151583815
there's no season 2 you fucking tool.

S1 2003-2004

Thinking about the ending still hurts me nowadays.
>>
>>151584744
so I heard best girl had a baby, did he fuck her previously, or he picked her lady cell and got the kid in vitro?
>>
>>151585121
>he picked her lady cell and got the kid in vitro?
Yeah, cant remember whose sperm though. Might be her handler.
>>
>>151585121
They both died, but their sperm and eggs were preserved by the SWA. The woman who loved Hilshire raised the baby born of Triela and Hilshire's genetic union.
>>
>>151585230
any pic of triela jr?
>>
>>151585230
Was it confirmed it was Hilshire's sperm? Pretty sure it never mentioned in the official translation at least.
>>
>>151584744
Is it really possible to read, knowing that the girls you love have no future?

Here, pre and post timeskip.

>>151585302
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?
>>
>>151585605
fucking short-haired nerd bitch.
>>
>>151585650
Not Roberta, the woman who's still alive. It's been so long since I've read this.
>>
>>151585524
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.

>>151583771
Second season was okay.

At least Claes finally got to be badass.
>>
>>151585898
Claes was always second or third best girl.
>>
>>151586018
Triela > Henrietta > Claes > Petrushka > Rico > Angelica
>>
>>151586018
Yeah, she has always been stealth badass but that chapter really made me respect her. Triela will always be the number one for me though.
>>
>>151586148
I preferred Rico to Henrietta, and Angelica was a sweetheart.

>>151586214
Triela forever.
>>
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.
>>
>>151586562
When I saw her sternness toward adults contrast her gentle, uplifting nature toward the younger girls. She is wonderful.
>>
>>151586562
Her uterus.
>>
>>151586562
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 ;_;
>>
>>151586562
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.
>>
>>151586959
>>151587073
My absolute favorite moment in the manga right here. Petrushka was my 2nd favorite.
>>
>>151583771
Blame the manga author, he fired all season 1 staff because he think season 1 sucks.
>>
>>151587363
>manga artist gets the staff of Madhouse fired
u wot?
