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!

Yep,hadn't posted the info but I knew it

In fact,if anyone wants to practice their french,a very popular manga news website had a full front page article on GG earlier this month (nothing in there that you don't already know)

Hmmm... I might have to start snapping up the French volumes, if they're consistently released ahead of the English like this...

Hi peoples, I was just on a website called 'nt2099.com'
http://www.nt2099.com/J-ENT/news/tag/yu-aida/
and in it says that well, I'll just cut and paste the part I'd like you guys to read:
'In 2002, mangaka Yu Aida had her first manga “Gunslinger Girl” published in the monthly shonen magazine “Dengeki Daioh”. A year later, her manga series was adapted into a 13-episode anime television series airing on Fuji TV. The manga and anime series would continue with another 13-episode anime television series titled “Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-” in 2008 and has also inspired video games for the Sony PlayStation 2.'
Did you get the part about Yu Aida being a SHE?
Hmm....
Also in another web site called 'guitarsolos.com'
http://www.guitarsolos.com/videos-gunslinger-girl-the-light-before-%5BSuqAAzAMWj0%5D.cfm
after a very brief article on the show some of the people who voice their opinions had one individual who said that a third season is in the works.
(beats me how that person knows this, but I just thought I'd submit it to you fellow GSG aficionados!)
this is the part I copy/pasted: 'well the second season was based on the manga much like season 1 was as well as the ova. there is a third season or ova out there as well the manga is also on going still!' Puzzled
Here's a nice site named 'World News'

Has some of the CD's music and videos! head bang dancin\\'

Yu is short for Yutaka.

Yutaka is a man's name.

Yu Aida is a man.

Yu is a man,see the interview posted on this forum

There's been no news of a 3rd season (yet!) so that person is just speculating.

Since I bought it today....
First off the french cover is slightly different from japanese one (for exemple look at the color of the silhouette)

Spoiler:

And I was happily surprised to see that to me the cover looks a lot better in real life than it does on a computer screen,don't ask why.

So,first impressions,well josé is all like 'I can't believe my sister could be this cute"....oh wait,wrong manga Razz

Ok,really,having been on the forums I knew basicly what was going to happen but the dialogue is so good it really takes another level,especial the death scene.

Had a laugh thinking Petra/Sandro haters would be happy,they don't even appear in the character page at the start of this volume Very Happy

There's some extra notes at the end,either by Yu Aida or the japanese editor,but I'm guessing Yu about a whole lot of different subjects:
-How fictional are the politics in the manga universe,how likely is something like that to happen?
-Italians go on vacation a whole lot more than japanese people
-Different types of italian mineral water (apparently japanese just drink tap water?)
-The exact procedure of an italian military funeral
-Brain/speach machines as seen in the manga:how close are we to that kind of technology today?

And my favorite part,random Claes gardening facts:
-In vol4 she says to Jean that one of the reasons she started gardening is so that one day she'd be able to take "herbal baths" with the herbs she cultivated,in vol9 she is seen taking one,so she's succeeded in her entreprise
-In vol12 girls note that the infusion/tea claes gave them is different from usual,Claes tells them she gave them a different flavor,Claes can be seen planting the plants used to make that flavor in the previous volume.Yu goes on to talk about the different kinds of flavors and their different benefits

Lastly a teaser page says "volume 13,coming out in japan in winter 2010"

.... well Totoum you beat me to it...

Ive read the book 3 times now and really like it. The only thing i hate is how short those books are. (Took me less than 30 min to read it and now i have to wait another year for the next one!!! bang head )

Btw Rico is so cute near the end of the book.... (but wont say to much since many here didnt see it yet)

Also i dont know how far you guys are in the english translation, if you need any help in some parts, just ask ill gladly help by translating parts the french one in english.

I think that it would probably be better to translate from French into English than from Japanese. KodokuRyuu doesn't have the time to translate anymore, so if the French version has overtaken the English scanlations then it makes sense to work from them instead.

@Nachtsider wrote:What was Yu's answer to the politics thing...?

From memory,when he started the series he based it on the fact that there was a sharp difference in the economic state of the country:North is rich,south is poor (due to its economy being based on agriculture which isn't a thriving sector anymore) and he's heard of people from the north tired of having to support people from the south,add to that the fact the country only became unified in the 19th century (so there's no real "nationalism" in italy,people are more attached to their local region than the country itself) he thought that if the economy in the south really got out of hand something might have happened.But that was when he started writing,over the past decade the south's economy has been catching up to the north (even if it's still behind) so the situation isn't what it used to be.

Yu uses the whole north/south thing with the character Sophia:she has a hard time getting accepted (at first) in the croce family because she's a "southern peasant girl" when drives an old washed up car and joined the military police mainly because she couldn't find a job anywhere else.
