According to Wikipedia, the series is still ongoing since 2002.

I've seen that, but I haven't seen a Japanese release date for the next volume, so I wondered whether that was accurate.

Got a little info on GSG manga from another anime site...


Seven Seas has announced that it has licensed Yu Aida's GSG...The Publisher will release the first six volumes in two omnibus volumes starting in Feb 2011, and then start releasing singles with volume 7. There are currently 12 volumes in Japan.

Yay!!

That's good news. Like many others, I've been waiting for Volume 7 for a while.

Ok, i've seen that vols 7& 8 are out in omnibus format, but i haven't seen anything in the singles release of these vols yet. Anyone hear anything or have plans changed and only the omnibus versions are going to be published instead?

It seems to me that those omnibus things are becoming more common, since they contain a lot more material than the normal manga.
Plus in the long run, they might be cheaper than buying a ton of single volumes (kind of like anime went to mostly 1/2 season releases instead of singles).

Not sure if Gunslinger Girl is just going to do omnibus for those volumes, but it has happened in the past for other manga at the ends of the run (though I am not sure how long Gunslinger Girl goes) such as Mushi-Shi, and School Rumble.

The latter from what I can tell.

A Seven Seas rep has stated a few times that book stores don't usually carry license rescues unless they are in omnibus format.

Has anybody read the Gunslinger Girl Omnibuses? I'd like to hear anybody's thoughts/feelings regarding the manga. I'm a huge fan of the anime. It's one of my all time favorites.

I never bought the title because of a certain spoiler that I've heard. It would be too sad to read IMO.
