    Thought it was strange that both had a release date of Dec 12, 2012 on Right Stuf. Guess I'll just wait for the next sale after all.

        I figured as such. I've already waited years for more GSG, so a month or two more is no big deal. I think I'd prefer single volumes over omnibus, but I can't begrude Seven Seas over it if it makes more financial sense.

            If I were to offer my honest opinion, I'd say "Heck yes," as it's quite possibly my favorite manga ever and works on many different levels, all of which could appeal to different people.

              Well, this sounds really good. In your opinion, is it better than the first anime series?

                Personally, I really like both, but for different reasons. If I had to pick one, I'd say the manga wins out, but the first series does such an elegant job of adapting it that it's an easy recommendation as well. Go for the manga, you won't be disappointed.

                The second series, of course, does not exist. Those DVDs and Blu-rays out there are a lie.

                    I'd say they're about equal, but it's really hard to choose.

                    I thought this myself, until I gave in, got the BDs...and actually liked it. It's certainly not as good as the first season; it's execution is awkward and cheap in comparison. But it still works well as an adaption of the manga. I think the story in manga volumes 3-5 (which the season season adapts) is better than manga volumes 1-2 (which the first season adapts). It's like the source material reaches a point of such goodness, IMHO, that even a crappy adaption still turns out pretty good.

                      That is pretty much my feelings on the second series as well. Despite the inferior production values and lackluster action scenes, the strength of the story arc it adapts manages to carry the series. I would have loved to see a higher budget adaptation of the arc, but Il Teatrino still managed to be enganging.
