Are those scanlations or did you get hold of another publisher from overseas?
I have vol 1-2 from ADV then 3-5 in Japanese since ADV was slow. Vol 6 and 7 is from other sources since there is no Kinokuniya here in Adelaide, which is primary source of my Japanese manga when I felt in the mood to read manga with huge dictionary on my lap and monitor.
Yeap, I still have to use dictionary since my Japanese is not great to start with. For example, Fate/Stay Night the game took me 6 months to finish since I was reading it slowly and keep cross referencing all the time plus the game's Japanese is hard to read.
The latest chapter of Gunslinger Girl is opening more history on Petrushka/Petra's handler, Alessandro ( I can't spell Italian names here, sorry) and why he disliked red hair girls.
PS: There is another girl which is not shown in anime, Beatrice who prefers Micro Uzis as primary. The only thing readers knew about her so far is her keen sense of smell. She only appeared in less than 3 pages in Vol 4.
