For those of you who've watched and really enjoyed the first season of Gunslinger Girl (like I did), this second season is a real disappointment.
Visually, the anime style is quite different, changing how one perceives the characters. The first season illustrated them as cute, but with an underlining seriousness/ sadness about them. This second season draws them a little more "cutsey" and I find it hard to connect them to the original characters. Also, the quality of the anime seems lower, like there was a budget cut this time around.
Character wise, they seem to be portrayed differently... can't quite put my finger on it, but it is different.
Now, I realize that a couple of years have passed from the time Gunslinger girl was aired to this "Il Teatrino" and I've only watched the first episode of this season. I'll give it a couple more episodes before I decide if I'm going to bother watching the rest.
