The anime was on my list of Netflix recommendations after I'd given 'Grave of the Fireflies' five stars. Depressing, huh? But I gave it a look and was captured. I couldn't get the image of Elsa and Lauro lying in the park like broken toys out of my head until I'd written a 50K-word fanfic about it and posted it on FFnet. Then I discovered this site, joined up, started reading the manga and saw how far off canon I was.

Grave of the Fireflies was terrific. A totally unflinching peek at a period and place in history that we westerners know so little about.Thescarredman wrote:The anime was on my list of Netflix recommendations after I'd given 'Grave of the Fireflies' five stars. Depressing, huh?

Agreed on all accounts!! Grave of the Fireflies is still #1 on my all-time feature list. Anime or otherwise.

It was recomeded to me by a freind when I made fun of his wallpaper, it was smoething like 'Children with guns? What rubbish will Japan come up with next?'. Then he told me a little about, gave me seasons one and two to watch, and I was hooked. Now that I think about it, every time i make fun of an anime he watches (calling it stupid or somthing like that), I watch a little and enjoy it, thus eating my words about it being stupid. That's karma for you.

I kind of decided to check out the anime on a whim. I saw it on an anime site and decided to check it out. I watched the first episode, and enjoyed the whole anime, all the way to the end. I didn't actually check out Il Teatrino till much later though. Anyways, I kind of just watched the 13 episode anime and left it at that(at that point it was my third favorite anime). One day my younger cousin talked about this great series called "Gunslinger Girl", and asked if I'd heard of it. Of course I said I had. I was a little surprised, since he was 13 at the time, and GG never struck me as an anime that appealed to a younger audience. He then talked about wanting to check out the manga. I decided to check it out too, on a whim, and picked up the first omnibus. Needless to say, I really enjoyed it, then watched the original anime again, which moved up two slots to become my favorite after that. I read a little manga before that, after hanging out with some classmates from my Japanese class, who were all really into it, but it never caught on as a hobby of mine, until I started reading the Gunslinger Girl manga. Now I actually prefer manga to anime. Go figure. Well, that's my story, and the rest is history.

When I was 14, my favourite book was 'The Gunslinger' by Stephen King. It had a big impact on my life, and I must've read it about a hundred times. Soon after this, I usually googled things to do with 'Gunslingers', and stumbled across something called 'Gunslinger Girl'. Reading the summary on wikipedia, I thought I'd give the first chapter a read, and got hooked

The last year when I was in vacations at 1am, I wanted to watch an anime with bullets, action, guns, etc, so I just started searching. I saw the title "Gunslinger Girl", with the pic of Henrietta on the sofa, and then I clicked... Watched the 1st episode that day, and I loved it.
