In the heart of Italy, the Social Welfare Agency rescues young girls from hospital beds and gives them a second chance at life using the latest in cybernetic advancements. With their artificially enhanced bodies, the girls are brainwashed and trained as assassins to carry out the dirty work of the Italian Government. Despite all the modifications, they are still just children at heart, struggling for recognition from those they love, even knowing the love they feel is manufactured. This tragic tale unfolds as these girls grapple with their emotions in an agency that treats them as nothing but ruthless killers.

Complex web of character relationships. Gorgeous, detailed art. Great sound design. Executed with a breadth of subtlety and realism.


Succeeds because its focus is entirely on its characters and how they define themselves in relation to their environment and each other.


One of the best OP’s and one of the best gun related anime, still one of my favorites


A chilling tale about bonds with dark tones. A solid watch. Pleasurable OST


Cerebral and slow. This isn’t a casual watch at all, but very worth it.


decent. weird early 2000s style. not much story wise happens, mostly character introducing and development


I really liked this one, watched it when I was a kid



    can i kwill u plis 🥺🥺
