Gunslinger Girl Chapter 100
English Alt: puu.sh/1bdp6
Well folks, as they say, all good things must come to an end. The story might be done but that doesn't mean the world Yu Aida created is dead and gone. It only means it is now unbound from pesky canon and free to be expanded upon in limitless ways. I never thought I would become a scanlator and this project started as a sudden and unexpected experiment for me, but I thank you kindly for being patient as I worked my way up from flailing my arms while I translated a language I had pretty much no grasp of to where I'm at now. Where is that? Well I'm not entirely sure but I learned a whole hell of a lot and had a surprising amount of fun along the way. I also have to mention all those that donated to me so I could bring it to you all every month, so it wouldn't be painfully orphaned for years as it was at one time. So thanks, and I hope that you enjoy the last chapter as much as I liked translating it. It's a doozy, to say the least.
At one time I entertained the idea of doing re-translations of earlier chapters and setting them on the newer, better scans from the volumes. Instead, I will let Seven Seas take it from here, so to speak. I encourage everyone to support the publisher that brought Gunslinger Girl back into circulation in most of the west. The first 5 omnibus volumes (Volumes 1-12) by Seven Seas are now out, with the final omnibus collection due to be released next year.
