New OVA: Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-

I considered the original Gunslinger Girl series as a very fine piece of art, but not so for the second series, Gunslinger Girl ~Il Teatrino~. While I don't have a problem with the story itself, the art work from the second series just bothers me.

Certain art styles just don't match well for certain types of stories. In this case, it became especially apparent when a different art style which does match well with the story had previously set the standard.

Back to the OVA itself, it is merely some side story that is not really related to either story, nor is it an extension for either series. It makes me question the production company's motive for releasing this OVA at all. To me, this seems to be a release for the sake of sales, rather than making the story better.

Rating (out of 5): 3 ~ I only give it this much out of the respect towards the original story
