Gunslinger Girl Omnibus 1Gunslinger Girl Omnibus 1 by Yu Aida

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Henrietta barely survives the murder of her family, after which the Social Welfare Agency uses the latest in cybernetic technology to save her life. All memories of the past are erased from her mind as the Agency turns her into a deadly assassin.

Henrietta is plagued by fragmented memories of her past even after the programming given to her by the Agency. As her handler Jose is charged with keeping her feelings in check and ensuring that she stays focused on her mission. Jose finds this difficult due to her resemblance to his younger sister.

I very much enjoyed reading this and look forward to seeing what happens next.
