    Ghost in the shell

    I wannna start watching Ghost in the shell and I wanna know if it's good. I've seen trailers for the movies and the series and they look awesome, but some people have said they're complicated and full of talking. So any oppinions?

    if you can handle people talking about conspiracies, using big words, and talking in an almost emotionless expression
    then you will probably like the GITS series

    it's kinda like the X-files with all these private discussions among main characters except there's a ton more violence

    and once you really get into the whole "Laughing Man" thing
    you'll probably get hooked into the series waiting to find out what the hell the "Laughing Man" is and what's he gonna do
    he's probably the coolest character in Stand Alone Complex

    oh, in Stand Alone Complex
    please try to cope with the Tachikomas (sp?)
    they're kinda annoying

    anyway...
    Ghost in the Shell = action-scifi-mystery-thriller that either makes you think or bores you to death
    depends all on your attention span

    I love my girlfriend.

    Dude seriously anything to do with Masamune Shirow is worth watching.

    Ghost in the shell i rate as my favourite old school anime, it is philosophical and has great scense in the anime. Also the way it was directed by Mamoru Oshii & Masamune Shirow was very unique also, rather then show how the characters impact on the story they show the environement around them influences the characters and there roles. Those idiots that made the matrix stole allot from ghost in the shell.


    Ghost in the Shell the stand alone complexe is great with 29 episodes of great storyline and nice action scenes and great idea's and Major Tasunagi ( i hope thats the spelling ) is too cool.

    and as for Ghost in the shell 2 innocence This was something that every hardcore anime fan has been waiting for many years and it was great and artistic here is a qoute "this is one of the absolute best films you'll see this year! - harry knowles, aint it cool news"

    trust me Masamune shirow and Mamoru Oshi are amazing, i mean look at Akira, ghost in the shell and Applseed.

    Hope that clarify's "GO WATCH THEM!"
    regards Masamune Shirow fan #1.Jan

    If they really had a desire to live, they would've been more aware of how easy it is to die.

    You should stop talking about your dreams, and start making them.

    There is something so human in the desire to never give up, while at the same time, never giving it your all?
