Gunslinger Girl - Il Teatrino

Gunslinger Girl - Il Teatrino

With its original manga selling over 25 million copies, the anime adaptation of "Gunslinger Girl - Il Teatrino" will release its first DVD at last!

Behind the smooth veneer of charity organization Social Welfare Agency lies a hidden agenda, to give dying girls a mechanical body with certain strings attached--to use the body to fight for government. Each girl gets a male handler that escorts them along on missions with the two given the title of "Fratello," or brothers. With their life memories locked away, the girls obey the orders of their fratello, take guns in their hands, and fight . . . an overall happy life. Season two tells the story of Triela and Pinocchio's fate and the war between Social Welfare Agency and the Movimento Delle Cinque Repubbliche.

Disc one includes episode 1. Limited edition includes three-bromide set and bonus disc with Italian travel footage, creditless outro theme, and character music video (Henrietta). The CDs of intro theme "Tatta Hitotsu no Negai" by KOKIA and outro theme "doll/human" are out now!
