Gunslinger Girl: Season One

 (TV) (2003-2004)

Gunslinger Girl: Season One Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

"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 organization and given cybernetic components over her battered body. Brainwashed by the organization, she and four other girls now work as cold-blooded assassins, doing the dirty work for the Italian government.

Gunslinger Girl: Season One Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 19Mbps), Gunslinger Girl provides a noticeable upgrade over the DVD release, but still exhibits its fair share of problems. Those of you who've grown accustomed to prior Blu-ray releases of anime productions that weren't originally created in high-definition will already know what to expect from the level of clarity on this release. I never consider this a deal-breaker in my assessment of the overall transfer, since FUNimation is simply working with source material that doesn't lend itself well to high-definition. As a result, we should focus more attention on the proficiency of the transfer itself, and whether FUNimation created a final product that mirrors the original elements. In that regard, I'd give Gunslinger Girl a lukewarm thumbs up, since there's a clear boost in line consistency, color richness, and image stability. That's not to say we completely avoid the presence of stair-stepping diagonal lines, aliasing, or subtle blocking, but the problems are less pronounced in the transition to 1080p. Regarding contrast and coloring in the series, I never detected weakness in black level depth, contrast often generates adequate shade differentiation (though the image appears a hint too bright on my projector), and the muted color scheme maintains excellent consistency from scene to scene. If you're looking for a colorful series, this probably won't rank highly on your list, but the muted tones of the palette represent the stylistic choices of the animation and shouldn't be seen as a detriment to the overall visual quality.

All things considered, this is an average visual presentation that provides a marginal step up compared to the prior DVD edition. If you're new to the series, this is clearly the version to get, but current owners will need to weigh the pros and cons of the upgrade decision a little more carefully.


Gunslinger Girl: Season One Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I'm not sure where FUNimation found a 5.1 mix for the original Japanese language track (the prior DVD only contained a stereo mix), but I was pleased to find a lossless 5.1 option that accompanies the equally proficient dub. If you take the time to listen to the production commentary in the special features section of the disc, the sound engineer responsible for the English track discusses the studio's decision to experiment with mixing the series to cinematic standards, rather than their usual practice of striving to meet broadcast standards. Granted this was likely a commentary dating back to the initial DVD release (nearly five years ago), but I still found it interesting that the studio made such a bold move in anticipation of the demanding audio standards of the western market. Getting back to the particulars of this release, I can't identify much to complain about. Dialog is delivered in a crisp fashion, action effects fill every speaker in the sound stage, and the enchanting musical score is well balanced without ever appearing overly prominent. If required to mention a minor complaint, I'd suggest a bit more separation in the front-heavy dialog, but that would merely reflect a nit-pick on my part, and may even boil down to personal preference.
