Henrietta is a young girl who works for a "welfare group" that does the government's dirty work. Cybernetically-enhanced and specially-trained, she is one of a group of elite hit-girls, remorseless killers with no memories of their past. Jose, her partner, has taken care of her since she was brought into the organization following the murder of her family, and struggles between his affection for her, and his opposing duty to his employer. But, time is running out.. for with each bullet they fire, Henrietta and the other girls lose a little more of their humanity.

In the year 20XX, insects have developed immunity to every kind of insect spray. To counter the incredible rise in insect numbers the Japanese government developed tiny extermination robots code named "Hoihoi-san". The popularity of Hoihoi-san units rises not only as a night time extermination unit, but for doll collectors as well! However, when a rival company introduces its own tiny extermination robots a new form of corporate sabotage begins, as they target not only the insects, but all Hoihoi-san units themselves!

Gunslinger Girl and Hoi Hoi san both show cute little weapons in action; whether it's a doll or a kid, their small hands holding huge weapons are just cute to look at. If you liked that in one, you'd like the other.

Jigoku Shoujo

Jigoku Shoujo

Has someone done something to hurt you or the ones you love? Are you seeking revenge? Rumor has it that there’s a website that can service your needs. Titled “Hotline to Hell”, it contains a form that can be accessed only at midnight. Type in a name, and the Hell Girl will carry out your bidding – for a price. For though your appetite for revenge will be satisfied, your soul will also be condemned to hell after you die. But who is the Hell Girl, and does she care whether your revenge is justified? Apparently not, as long as she gets more souls…

There are two main themes that run throughout both Gunslinger Girl and Jigoku Shoujo (Hell Girl) that make an appreciation of one lead into the other. Those two themes are loss of innocence, and retribution (whether it be divine or mortal). While Jigoku Shoujo is decidedly more canted towards spiritual retribution and Gunslinger Girl towards the hubris of man, both stories center around a young girl who, with a cast of adults who support her, carry out a certain final justice. What makes these two titles particularly compatible is that both are seeped in a dark sense of style, with a slow yet satisfying pace designed to keep you guessing what will happen next.

Jin Roh and Gunslinger Girl are very similar in the way they deal with the use of little girls in battle. Both focus on the kids' views of their lives and their relationships with one special adult close to them. If you liked one, the other will suit you too.

Both shows are about girls being assassins. They are very good in both shows. In gunslinger girl the girls are part machine. The girls in both shows are brainwashed and controled by others. Kite Liberator has a Sci-fi plot while Gunslinger Girl is more realistic.

Both Kodomo no Jikan and Gunslnger Girl deal heavily with the turmoil of adolescence under strange circumstances, taking care to honestly approach the situations and express the emotions of the characters reasonably. Kodomo no Jikan uses perverse comedy as its medium of expression while Gunslinger Girl uses violence, but both give an intelligent, often dark, and often harsh view of innocence and adolescence in a way that is not usually expressed.
