Third volume of the anime series. Henrietta was an innocent little girl when her entire family was massacred and she was left for dead. She was rescued by a privately-owned social welfare organisation and given cybernetic components over her battered body. Brainwashed by the organisation, she and four other girls now work as cold-blooded assassins, doing the dirty work for the Italian government. In this volume, Section One is investigated a grisly murder, while Henrietta and Jose are sent away for their own protection. But what does henrietta really know that is so dangerous? Episodes are: 'To Love', 'High Fever', 'Symbiosis' and 'Falling Star'.

Disc 03 wraps up a small sub-plot that started in Disc 02, and has a couple of stand-alone stories to boot. I didn't find Disc 03 as compelling as, say, Disc 01 or 02, but I'm glad I picked it up to round out the series. The end of disc 03 seems to wrap out the series, so i'm guessing there is no Disc 04 forthcoming.
All in all, some of the themes in Gunslinger Girl are reminiscent of "La Femme Nikita" and "The Professional", but they're handled in a more interesting fashion, with some tight yet unconventional storytelling and with interesting character development. The art is fantastic to boot.
Check it out!
In episode 10, a girl and her handler are found murdered in a park, and the agency comes under investigation from higher authorities. It takes the insight of one of the other girls to solve the mystery of what really happened. This story arc carries over into episode 11.
In episode 12, Claes is used as bait to discover the location of a team of kidnappers, and Angelica's pre-enhancement injuries and her desperation to prove herself become deadly liabilities.
In the final episode, Angelica's condition worsens and the girls have to deal with the fact that one of their own may not be with them much longer.
It's a beautiful ending to a unique series. While I am saddened to leave these characters, I am satisfied with what's here. Extra features on the DVD include production commentary, voice director commentary, clean opening and closing sequences, dossier files, a cel-building demonstration, and trailers.
