Not the complete series,
This review is from: Ghost In The Shell - SAC Trilogy Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
This box set does not include the complete series (first & second GIG), it actually includes a cut down 150 minute edit of each series. What you get is a compilation of the 'complex' episodes distilled down to a feature that is one quarter of the original series length, with the 'stand alone' content missing.
So, you have both series abridged plus th Solid State Society film. If you are looking for the complete collection, look elsewhere. This probably isn't the experience that you are hoping for.

Thanks- just what I wanted to know! I'll stick with the original 1st and 2nd Gig then ^_^

Sorry, I clicked "No" rather than "Yes" in reply to "Was this review helpful to you?" It was helpful, and the stats should now be 28/30, not 27/30. Excuse my clumsiness.

What the reviewer doesn't state is that The Laughing Man and Individual 11 are more than abriged versiosn of 1st and 2nd gig. They contain extra scenes used to bridge the storyline better and they've both been re-edited to give more of a sense of continuity than the episodes do on their own. I'd still definitely buy 1st and 2nd gig before even thinking about this set.
