Gunslinger Girl Volume 12 Releases on April 27th

Post by Kiskaloo on Wed 7 Apr 2010 - 10:46

Received my pre-order notice from amazon.co.jp today noting that GSG Volume 12 will be released at the end of the month. No cover image, as of yet.

As I expect it to include Chapters 67 through 73, that would be a "no". Wink

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.

On the plus side, we now know that GSG will not end in the immediate future, since he has not finished the story in Dengeki Daioh, which means we can expect at least another 6-8 chapters (for a Volume 13).

Ugh, dipped in honey sounds right. The quality of these covers seems to steadying out to a really shitty low. It's a big step up from vol 11's cover. But seeing as how that one was flat out horrible, that's not saying much. What the hell is going on with Yu Aida (assuming he does the covers)?

Are we sure the colouring of this image properly reflects the actual volume cover? The lettering of the Gunslinger Girl title is even hard to see. It seems to me that this picture is over-exposed.

The monthly releases in Dengeki Daioh on occasion omit some pages for space issues. These pages are then restored when the tankobon volumes are released.

Examples include Angelica waking up and looking at her stuffed "Perro" dog at the start of Chapter 45 and scenes with Beatrice / Bernardo and Petrushka /Alessandro just before the Venice Operation.



And yes, that appears to be the actual cover per amazon.co.jp

Are you sure they are actually omitted and not just bonus pages added to the tankoubon?

As for the cover, at first I didn't think it was too bad, but the more I look at it the less I like it.

I suppose they could be. The couple of pages with Angelica were superfluous, but I'm hoping the two of the four missing pages from Volume 10 will answer once and for all the relationship between Alessandro and Petrushka (at least through Venice) and the two missing pages with Bernardo and Beatrice look to provide some insight into their fratello.

I doubt that space is the issue here. Those magazines vary in size most of the time and they're usually pretty damn thick. Usually it's because of lack of time due to deadlines or lazyness by the author himself. So while they tell the basic story on the individual issues, they draw those extra pages to make the story flow better or to better bring closure to some finished plotline, get more action scenes going, whatever.

Hirano, the author of Hellsing, usually adds up to freaking 20 new pages when he releases a new volume. And he's has done 8 page chapters in the past, he's just lazy and waits for the whole volume to finish it all. There's always new pages and redrawn bits of details and other stuff in most manga series.

I wouldn't exactly say evil, more like chaotic perverted with the way Rico is dressed and without any alternative way of carrying a spare ammunition clip...
Volume 12's cover seems like the transition from the normal world in Who Framed Roger Rabbit to Toon Town...

Volume 12 - titled Addio - contains Chapters 67 through 73 and they are identical to those published in Dengeki Daioh (so no extra pages).

Here is the cover:

Volume 13 will be released in the Winter of this year, so looks like we have at least another six to seven chapters.

The tagline is: "ジャコモダンテ率いる、五共和国派残余 / 社後の戦い" which looks to be "Giacomo Dante leads the Five Republics against the Agency" so we may see the denouement to the story.

That's supposed to be Enrica on the cover, next to her darling brothers, right? Hasn't it been shown that she and Henrietta share some resemblance, hence why Jose picked her in the first place? I mean, it's been a while since I've read any GSG, but I distinctly remember Enrica looking a bit... different. Hmm, maybe it's just me. Is it just me?

Toddler Enrica was pretty much a pint-sized version of Henrietta, but they separate visibly in their (relatively) older forms. It's more of a case of Jose trying to rebuild his past family by turning Henrietta into Enrica (having her wear the sailor costume in Sicily, for instance) rather than them necessarily sharing attributes.

Even their attitudes are different - Henrietta's always been timorous and mousy but Enrica. as we see in her relations to Sophia, could be a real brat when it took her.

Ah, that explains it. I haven't gotten very far past 66, and it's been a decently long time, so... yeah. Thanks for clearing that up for me.

I dunno, she kinda looks more like Beatrice to me in that picture.

Glocks are not the shit. Glocks can fail the same as any other gun. I've seen it personally, and have even heard first-hand accounts of something as basic as a slide-retaining pin snapping, the slide flying off. Get over the obsession and buy what fits your hand, your wallet, and ability.

Jean does visit Sophia's grave in the OVA, is that what you're refering to Austin?

I think that would work best if you attached a very large check along with your petition.

Well, here's the sales figures for the first week of Vol. 12's release - it entered in 18th place with a little over 60,000 copies sold. By the second week it had dropped to 30th place with another 20,000+ books sold. It's not eating up a rainforest's worth of wood-pulp like the Big Three, of course, but those figures are entirely respectable. I'm not sure what royalty rates are like for manga, but even if Yu makes as little as fifty cents on each copy (which would be less than 10% of the cover price of a manga that retails for around about six dollars), with two volumes a year plus magazine salary he must be earning some $100,000 per annum. GSG is still a successful concern!
