How is this series? I have only seen the first movie, and I liked it. Is it worth checking out?
Move and SAC are 2 different settings, but yes its pretty good.
Adult Swim has been running the series Monday-Thrusday right now.
I've got them, but haven't watched them yet. I wanted to ask a question on this as well. my local library has a GitS movie, called Innocence, I believe. where would that movie fall in the watching order?
I have gig 1 and gig 2 on my dvd.....and never watched it.
Innocence is the second movie and follows after the first GitS movie. The movies, manga, and show are all seperate continuities in a sense. Personally, I prefer the SAC series over the rest. It has a depth I found lacking in the manga and has time to explore the themes that the movies don't. However the show is a lot more political than the movies, but still brings in plenty of action. I really need to buy the first season and finish collecting the second. GitS: SAC is easily one of the 10 best shows I've seen.
Hey all, not a big non-sighting poster, but as coincidence would have it I've been on a Ghost in the Shell kick the past week so I'm gonna go all guru for 15 seconds here.
Ghost in the Shell the Movie and Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence tie into each other... and have nothing to do with Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex at all... it's its own continuity... although with the same main characters (which causes the confusion)
Stand Alone Complex however has it's own movie (not available in English here yet) called "Solid State Society" (cool name, I wish I thought of it) that takes place after the conclusion of the series... SAC is 2 seasons, 52 episodes...
I've yet to watch Solid State, but rumor has it the very last line/scene makes reference to the beginning of Ghost in the Shell the Movie (original)... although the two are supposed to have nothing at all to do with each other. It's just a nod the one show made to the other I guess...
Solid State Society is rumored not to be the end end of the SAC Universe as a side note.
The series is definitely worth checking out if you're into anime with high tech motifs. It's enjoyable but requires thinking... they're very philosophical... and it's for the most part a giant story arch so you have to pay attention and remember things from episode to episode. I found the movies to be a bit harder to follow and the series to actually be better (I like the character models more in SAC too). I like the concepts and I can see why the Matrix writers bit so hard off it.
I freaking love this series and am still kicking myself for not buying the box set for $40
One of my favs. 10/10.
One of my favorite anime shows ever. Even the English dubbed version is great (though I haven't watched in it Japanese, as I think the English dub is spot on with the voice cast). Now where is my 1:1 scale Tachikoma?
As close as you're going to get:
That figure is sweet as hell. The Description is missing something though, how tall it actually is.
SAC is one of the best animes I've seen in quite some time. Everything about it - the story, the storytelling, the character depth, Yoko Kanno's music, the sheer fucking artistry and the sense that the people behind it were deeply passionate about what they were doing - puts it in a league of its own.
Is this one 1:24 scale? Cuz I'd get it to play with my Alts. And see if The Major can drive an Alt as well.
1:20 seems like it shodul be pretty god sized for that litlte guy. Now I just need some spare money and he can sit on top of my TV.
I used the $10 Google Check-Out sign-up deal on DVD Planet (whose price was already $59.97) and got the first season box set for $49.97.
Oh, and by the way, I also orderd the Perfect Piece Tachikoma from HLJ. I'l post pics when I get it.
I love it, if it's on I'm watching it.
Please place one of the TF Classic figures next to it when it shows up so I can get a better idea for its size please.
Yeah, that and sI'll take some Alternators comparison shots too.
Sweet. Thanks in advance.
