stuff i bought this week

I bought the first three volumes of some random manga called Gunslinger Girl. Perhaps you’ve heard of it.

The cover of the first volume is really quite sexually suggestive, and I’ve never noticed it until now. It features an adorable Henrietta blushing with a gun on her chest. Her expression makes it look as if she was just touched inappropriately, and the gun only suggests the violent means the toucher used to make her comply (actually if such a thing actually happened she’d probably just break his fingers.)

So yeah, I bought these out of frustration over how horrible the new TV show is. I’ll read them after I’m done reading other things.
