Review: Gunslinger Girl Omnibus 1

Gunslinger Girl Omnibus 1
Gunslinger Girl Omnibus 1 by Yu Aida

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I gave this my "Disturbing" tag, but the Manga-ka meant this series to BE disturbing.

Young, broken girls are rehabilitated as cyborg assassins for the Italian government. They are rebuilt, "conditioned" and then paired with an adult male handler and sent on a variety of missions.

This series focuses on the fact that they are still little girls with all the emotions and foibles that go along with that.

Some chapters were action packed, others were funny, others a slice of life. They all blended into one great tapestry of terrorism, counter-terrorism and emotions.
