I've heard from a lot of people that season 2 of the Gunslinger Girl anime adaptation is significantly more upbeat and brighter than the original, and loses the feeling of dark, morbid 'beauty', yet apparently, the second season follows the manga a lot closer.

Does the corresponding parts of the manga also have a more cheerful feel? (I only watched the anime, didn't read the manga)

  • Are you asking if the 2nd season of Gunslinger Girl reflect the manga, specifically with the "feeling"?

Simple answer is no. I think so, because

Many gitai (girls) died: Henrietta, Rico, Triela, Angelica, Beatrice, Silvia, ...


I would like to point out that Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino- style and colour scheme is a lot different from Gunslinger Girl. However it does still have it's darkness to it and it does follow the manga comics closer. Although I feel like it basically a remake of Gunslinger Girl but with a slightly brighter feeling to it.
