Gunslinger Girl Popular Anime Series
Gunslinger Girl ( Gansuringā Gāru?) is an ongoing manga by Yu Aida. It first premiered in the November 2002 issue of the monthly shōnen magazine Dengeki Daioh. The chapters are also being published in collected volumes by MediaWorks. Nine volumes have been released in Japan as of April 2008. 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 Television from October 8, 2003, to February 19, 2004. A sequel created by Artland premiered in Japan on Tokyo MX TV on January 7, 2008. Titled Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-, this sequel spanned thirteen episodes, concluding on March 31, 2008. Two additional episodes were released on DVD in Japan on October 24, 2008.

The core characters of Gunslinger Girl are the fratelli. To date, all of the fratelli shown consist of male handlers (usually in their mid 20s to 40s) with female cyborgs (usually in their early to mid teens). The relationship between a handler and a cyborg can be a complex one, and each fratello exhibits a unique dynamic. Most of the handlers have police or military backgrounds and were recruited directly into Section 2. Most handlers also chose their own cyborgs, though there is evidence that some had specific cyborgs assigned to them. Supporting the fratelli is the rest of Special Operations, Section 2. This includes the medical staff who both created the cyborgs and maintain them, other human operatives, and administrative and support staff. Arrayed against the fratelli are the members of the Five Republics Faction, also known as the Padania Republic Faction or PRF. The faction and its backers seek an independent northern Italy through acts of terrorism and bribery. They operate throughout Italy, though they are strongest in the northern regions.
