FUNimation Entertainment has announced its acquisition of Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino-. The anime is the sequel to Gunslinger Girl, which Funimation released in North America starting in 2005. Both series are based on the manga by Yu Aida and follows a group of cyborg girls who work as government assassins. Gunslinger Girl -Il Teatrino- aired in Japan this year from January 7 to March 31. The official English website is now online, after Funimation used its main company website to broadly "hint" at its license yesterday.
Unlike the first series, which was produced by Madhouse (BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad, Claymore), Gunslinger Girl Il Teatrino was produced by Artland (Eyeshield 21, Mushi-Shi).
