This 13 episode series I found to be absolutely amazing although it was rather depressing. Its such a good series I just wanted to know what others thought about it.

This is what the series is about in a nut shell(Comes from the back of the disc one case.)
"Officiall, the Social Welfare Agency is a government sponsored corporation that's in the business of saving lives. In reality, it's an agency on the fringe of technology. They give terminal patients another shot at life using cybernetic implants. This conditioning process then shapes the patient into an efficient machine for handling all of the governments dirty work.
Having survived the Brutal slaughter of her family, Henrietta awakens to her new life at the Agency with a re-built body and no memory of the past. She has been teamed wih her handler Jose, who is responsible for her training and conditioning, turning her into the perfect killing machine. Henrietta strives to find her place within the Agency, doing her best to win Jose's affection. But can Jose control her? Can he balance the needs and desires between the assassin and the developing adolescent?
Who are these girls?
They've been given a second chance at life... But at what cost?"

This anime series is great!

Your first reaction when you look at a cover/picture is, "Girls with guns? Cool." or, "This series must be really stupid."
But, once you start watching, it's absolutely amazing.

It takes place in Europe, unlike most of the other anime. Little girls are going around to kill people. Each girl has a "master" or "brother" who trains them, and is they're closest friend. Each girl would do anything, even sacrifice their lives for their master. This may seem like a "lolita" relationship. My opinion, is that it may turn out to be one.

Everyone should read the manga or watch the anime! It's awesome.

It's brilliant, i loved it! lots of interesting characters and i liked the insights into each relationship with their 'brother'. The ending made me cry. Looking forward to the new season.

i thought it was mediocre, all this action would be happening, and i wouldnt feel any excitement, all this drama was happening but i really didnt care

the loli girls and their "brother" type relationship just didnt work for me, i also hated the fact that all these bad guys cant kill some loli brats

the only good thing was, that it was set in italy, i think the creators really used the scenery/background music well

The anime doesn't do the manga justice.

i never read the manga but the anime was only alright. it was just a chort glimpse into these girls shortened lives. yeah the idea was interesting but for a mini series it really didnt hold my attention. the ending was well played but didnt really feel like an ending at all, more like a continuation. but the story didnt have anywhere to go from there so i quess they had to end it in that awkward kind of way.
-honestly i didnt even know there was a manga. if it it better maybe i'll check it out

Mmm...I read one or two volumes of the manga. It was really sad. In the end, I'd prefer to die then be brainwashed into killing people.

I agree and it is rumored that a second season is in the works. I think ADV is great for publishing more of the manga, It a great read.
