I think there are about 26 episodes in the season, and all but one or two are just great. The story gradually unravels and you are taken through a sci-fi world in between reality and the 'internet world'.
You'll find yourself being pulled into a story that can confuse you at times, but also intice you and makes you want to find out why events have happened, and other things that can't be said without being classed as spoilers.
Most of the 1st Gig (season) revolves around the 'Laughing Man' incident (these are 'Complex' episodes, whilst the rest are 'Stand Alone'/ single episodes), a case that is incredibly complicated as it seems to be linked to everyday events and occurences - I won't say any more about this as it really is just to good and I don't want to spoil it.
GITS revolves around the daily occurences of Section 9, a Japanese secret police force that works both for and behind the Government. Motoka Kusanagi (aka the Major) is a female cyborg that is usually involved in the action events in each episode (but not always), whilst the second main characters, Togusa and Batou, are often involved in the more unorthadox events. The cyborgs are not, however, actual robots - most are humans that have been fitted with machine parts in order to improve their performance - this idea is explained as the plot expands.Read more ›
Bring on 2nd Gig!
Each episode is great with stylish animation and great characters, a definate must buy.
Ghost in the Shell as a whole is one of , if not, the most intellectually stimulating story I have ever watched (and read). There are textures to this story that no hollywood movie or animated series has ever been ever to replicate.The Matrix 'tried' (yes THE MATRIX) but Ghost in the Shell still kicks butt when it comes to science fiction with a modern- day- not so- apocalyptic story.
Stand Alone Complex doesn't drop the ball on any point. Yes, you will need to have some previous knowledge of who the characters are to really get into the story but this is a MINOR issue because the story is soooo good you'll find yourself able to recite their names, blood types, and ancestry by the end of the first disc! This boxset has 7 discs- and believe me YOU WON'T GET BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY!
I personally am a great (gigantic) fan of Mamoru Oshii's work especially the Ghost in the Shell films, and have read the some of the manga (comic version) of Ghost in the Shell by Masamune Shirow - and I still love S.A.C because it has it's own style, grammar, angle, textures and excellent overlapping plots. The "Laughing Man case" is one of the most intricate but thrilling plots ever written in personal opinion.
What I like most about Ghost in the Shell is that it has a strong technological edge but it explains things to you- without making you feel stupid or like you're been spoon-fed. You WILL want to watch it twice and you WILL enjoy it as much as the first time, if not more.
The soundtrack for S.A.C is worth buying as well. It may seem as though this boxset/story sounds too good to be true.Read more ›
