Like the previous poster I too enjoyed the anime. Seems the anime was only some of the volume. So either we wait for a scanlating group to actually take on it or wait for the next batch of volumes to pile up and give us a new anime.

Been 3 years and its still at volume 12 :/ I guess its not one of the most popular stories. Its not bad its still alive but I worry it will end suddenly with the closing coming out of nowhere and being the usual "imagine what will happen" or a very fast forwarded sum up. I always hate it when this happens with manga I enjoy >.<!

I watched the anime first but I am enjoying the manga more. Its very interesting and fits the dark type I enjoy reading and even though I usually am not big on guns This one is already one of my favorites. I can't wait read more.

Seams most don't like the anime, I think it was great, compared to the manga, there are some fillers and a few changes in the plot (like how the guy of the silver wheel escapes on the 908 arc or the way the baby is handled), but overall it follows the same line.
Its a pity, that some of the arcs settings that come after those of the anime are too forced, makes the world created loose coherence, and it's not really necessary imo.
It's really a pity the group translating it is so slow, it's a good manga and very hard to read in japanese, lots of phrases per page and many complicated terms, need to use the dictionary too often >_<
Later on, the manga becomes kinda boring, about 80% of the pages are an explanation of the other 20% or the point of view of the chars. Also the story continues but hardly deals with any of the situations presented previously. I get the feeling the manga is loosing it's focus and headed in a bad direction, it would be a pity since it's an interesting setting and story, It's equally posible that reading it in japanease was making me loose focus.

Edit: Kodansha seams to be releasing it in english, almost cuaght up to were I stopped reading, that's great.

i made a huge mistake. i watched the anime first. the manga is so much better. now it is like my favorite. i cant find a good japanese distributor so i kinda had to buy the english adaption, which is farther than the scanlations. but its good to see that somebody sorta picked it up again.
i think this deserves a 10, but i just have not read quite enough (4 tankobon) and the art was a little sketchy in the first volume (-0.2)

This has been one of my favorite series ever since I watched the anime. I love the dark, gritty, post-WWI-esque setting and both main characters are strong character leads with solid character development, which is very refreshing to see. The manga version is better as it avoids filler and is a bit less censored than the anime. Unfortunately, the last scanlation chapter was released in 2014, and Del Rey Comics canceled Pumpkin Scissors back in 2010, so it could be a while before we can see more of this manga (unless you are literate in Japanese, of course).

agreed with the other poster, do not watch the anime, manga is way better.
I felt that the anime only serve as advertising purpose only for this series.This manga version is the only way to go.
