5.0 out of 5 stars This is amazing anime., 11 Aug. 2006

This review is from: Ghost In The Shell - Stand Alone Complex - SAC 1st GIG - Complete Box Set [DVD] (DVD)
It wasn't ever really my intention to come onto amazon and write film reviews (I'm a film studies student). But I've just watched about half of this series with my mate and I've enjoyed it so much I just ordered my own copy.

If you're a fan of the original feature film then this is pretty much more of the same. Lots of monologing cyber-philosophy and some wicked action. The plot as a whole centers around an individual named the Laughing Man and his corporate terrorism. I think the writing and just story in general is brilliantly done. It's basically a detective show. So it keeps you thinking and intrested. Then there's some action and some ones got a ten-foot long sniper rifle or the Major's getting her head punched into a wall/tank/other cyborg.

Speaking of the Major, the only thing I didn't like about the programme is that it's defiantly been made for an audience of boys ages eleven to eighteen. Everytime the interesting, unusual and exciting character of Major Kusanagi appears in shot you get a bangin' close-up of her tits or arse. To the detrement of her character and the whole punch of the series as a whole. It's sad to see such talent and energy going into something and then noticing there drawing some shots a bit porno for extra veiwer ratings.

That aside the Major's still kick ass and amazing. Also Batou and Togusa get some brilliant episode where the focus is on them. Especially an episode giving Batou some soldier back story. One of the darkest, nastiest serial killer stories I've seen in a long time.

I cannae wait for this to arrive. I might have to try and watch the whole thing in one go. TWo days? A day and a half? Roll on Second Gig!
