Doujinshi event Comitia is held four times a year, with its largest edition scheduled for Golden Week at Comiket home venue Tokyo Big Sight. Among the pro's attending this week's 116th event was Gunslinger Girl author Yu Aida. And, maybe not completely true to the spirit of the event, he posted a GG parody of the experience.

About a year after going from publishing his music online and bringing it to Comiket to producing his first major release, Revo (Attack on Titan), composed a "Poca Felicità" image album for Gunslinger Girl. Manga author Yu Aida illustrated the album art, and cast from the tragic series' anime adaptation provided the vocals. Now, almost a decade after its December 2005 release, a re-release is on the way.
After wrapping up Gunslinger Girl in 2012, author Yu Aida is back with a new manga series. He's at a new publisher and magazine for the new 1518!, which kicks off in Big Comic Spirits' 37-38 double issue, on sale August 11th. Get a look after the jump.
Gunslinger Girl author Yu Aida has recently been inspired by light novel turned anime series the Devil is a Part-Timer! to Tweet sketches of Emi Yusa and Chiho Sasaki. I guess that's what happens when you have time on your hands after finishing a successful manga series. Hopefully this doesn't mean that he's privy to some inside information about the Devil girls' tragic destinies. Get a look after the jump.
Yu Aida finalized the tragic Gunslinger Girl manga last year, with the 15th and final volume the 2002 series about traumatized girls turned into special ops assassins released in December. Retailers are now listing that North American publisher Seven Seas has the Gunslinger Girl: Finale volume slated for July 2nd, 2013 release. More after the jump.
Presumably Yu Aida is finalizing plans for something tragic because the Gunslinger Girl manga is set to end by the close of 2012. According to Mangaoh, the 2002 series about traumatized girls turned into special ops assassins will end in its 15th volume, slated to ship in Japan on Decamber 17th. More after the jump.
