Another anime review. Skip this if you’re not into anime. Yeah, I know it’s not aid work, but I do have a little leisure time you know.
Okay, and I’m a geek too.
In Il Teatrino, the follow-up series to the original Gunslinger Girl, the characters of the first season are back, with handful of extras, most notably the boy-assassin Pinocchio. While the first season focused primarily on the girls of the Social Welfare Agency and their stories, this second season becomes more plot-focused and splits its time evenly between the girls eponymous with the title, and a small band of terrorists against whom they are pitted. Picked up by a different production team, Il Teatrino isn’t the artful, subtle story that the first season is though dealing with the same sombre subject matter, so can hold its own, but with some disappointments.
