Gunslinger Girl

Plot: Under the guise of running a charitable organization for the rehabilitation of injured children, the Social Welfare Agency does military work for the Italian government -- using bionically-enhanced girls as tools. (A-)

Characters: A

Art & Animation: A

Voice Acting: A-

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Blood (many parts where squeamish people must cover their eyes), profanity

Other: A very dark anime, not one I go back to very often. The driving points of this one are the relationships of the girls with each other and with their handlers, and the conflict between these girls' human emotions and their use as conditioned killing-machines.

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5
