Gunslinger Girl (ガンスリンガー¬∑ガール, Gansuringā Gāru) is an ongoing manga by Yu Aida. It first premiered in the Nov. 2002 (15 years ago) issue of the monthly shōnen magazine Dengeki Daioh. The chapters are also being published in 'tankōbon' volumes by MediaWorks. Nine volumes have been released in Japan as of Apr. 2008 (9 years ago). Set in contemporary Italy, the series focuses on young cybernetic girls and their adult male handlers who use them as assassins under the directions of a government organization.

The manga series is licensed for an English language release in North America by ADV Manga. A thirteen-episode anime adaptation produced by Madhouse aired in Japan on Animax and Fuji TV from Oct. 8, 2003 (14 years ago), to Feb. 19, 2004 (13 years ago). A sequel created by Artland premiered in Japan on Tokyo MX TV on Jan. 7, 2008 (9 years ago). Titled Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-, this sequel spanned thirteen episodes, concluding on Mar. 31, 2008 (9 years ago). Two additional episodes were released on DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) in Japan on Oct. 24, 2008 (9 years ago).

Manga

Gunslinger Girl, written and illustrated by Yu Aida, first premiered in Japan in the Nov. 2002 (15 years ago) issue of the monthly Dengeki Daioh magazine. As of Apr. 2008 (9 years ago), 51 chapters have been published in the magazine. The chapters are also being published in collected volumes by MediaWorks, with the first volume released on Nov. 27, 2002 (15 years ago). Nine volumes have been published in Japan so far.

When ADV Manga was formed in 2003 (14 years ago), the Gunslinger Girl manga series was one of the first titles the new branch of ADV movies licensed for an English language release in North America. The first volume was released on Nov. 18, 2003 (14 years ago), with the next two volumes not released until 2005 (12 years ago). At the 2005 (12 years ago) Anime Next convention, ADV representative David L. Williams said the slow schedule was due to ADV Manga feeling that they had rushed into the manga market in a period when it was too saturated with new manga titles. After the third volume was released that year, the series went on a two-year hiatus. Release of the series resumed in Jul. 2007 (10 years ago) with the publication of the fourth volume, and six volumes have been released as of Apr. 2008 (9 years ago).

Anime

Gunslinger Girl was adapted into a thirteen-episode anime series based on the first two volumes of the manga. The series premiered in Japan on Fuji TV from Oct. 8, 2003 (14 years ago), to Feb. 19, 2004 (13 years ago). It was directed by Morio Asaka and produced by Madhouse, Bandai Visual, Marvelous Entertainment and Fuji TV, with music by Toshihiko Sahashi. The series also aired in Japan on the satellite TV network Animax, which later aired the series on its networks worldwide, including its English language networks in Southeast Asia and South Asia (where the series received its English language TV premiere). Gunslinger Girl was later aired in the United States on the Independent movie Channel. In late 2004 (13 years ago), FUNimation licensed the rights to release the first season of Gunslinger Girl across North America via a three-volume DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) series, releasing the last volume on sep. 6, 2005 (12 years ago). On sep. 19, 2006 (11 years ago), Funimation released the complete Gunslinger Girl series in a three-DVD box set, with another version released on dec. 11, 2007 (10 years ago). FUNimation's release of the first season is also available for download on iTunes, PlayStation Store, and Xbox Live Marketplace.

A second season of the series, entitled Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-, was officially announced in the Oct. issue of Dengeki Daioh. It premiered on Tokyo MX TV on Jan. 7, 2008 (9 years ago), and ran for thirteen additional episodes until its conclusion on Mar. 31, 2008 (9 years ago). This second season was animated by Artland and featured a new staff, with Gunslinger Girl creator Yu Aida being fully involved as the project's chief writer and supervisor. FUNimation has also licensed the second season and is currently streaming subtitled episodes on its website as well as on Veoh, promising a Region 1 retail release in 2009 (8 years ago). Two additional episodes (14 and 15) were released on DVD (Digital Versatile Disc) in Japan on Oct. 24, 2008 (9 years ago). In 2008 (9 years ago), Madman Entertainment acquired the license, and will release a complete set in 2009 (8 years ago).

Video games

A set of games have also been produced for the PlayStation 2, released only in Japan. These take the form of third-person shooters (though the gameplay is similar to Time Crisis) in which the player controls one of the girls on her missions. The series is composed of four volumes. There is an additional rogue fratello in these games, who go by the names Earnest (handler) and Pia (cyborg). Earnest and Pia do not appear in the manga or anime, nor are they ever mentioned. Pia's preferred weapons were the Desert Eagle .50AE and M16A1 with M203 grenade launcher.
