#12116552 Anime & Manga Steals and Deals (Rightstuf, Amazon, DD...etc)

Gunslinger Girl is a great show. I personally enjoyed the second season more. 

I've noted my preference towards season 2 as well in the past. The second season hews very closely to the manga and the emphasis on Hilshire/Triela/Pinnochio was very welcome. I revisit it more often than the first.

 

Still, the first season remains excellent, appropriately well-regarded for the better animation and more realistic color palette. Even the English op song stands above the norm. Both seasons come together as a favored series on the shelf.

Soul Eater was one of the best bang-for-the-buck deals ever when the blu-ray went to $20.99 at Amazon post-Christmas last year...

I would have liked more focus on mature characters like Stein and Marie over the course of the series but it was still quite entertaining save for the weak ending.
