What is it?

The 2002 Japanese anime (animated) television show Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex.

What is it about?

This is how Hulu describes this television show:

Major Motoko Kusanagi is a beautiful but deadly cyborg that is the squad leader of Section 9 – the Japanese government’s clandestine unit assigned to battle terrorism and cyber warfare.

Surrounded by an expertly trained team, Motoko faces her ultimate challenge – The Laughing Man – a terrorist who orchestrated a kidnapping and extortion plot many years ago and has suddenly reappeared.

In order to discover the identity of this enigmatic criminal, Motoko and Section 9 are drawn into a deadly labyrinth where they will have to use all their expertise to survive.

Final Thoughts

This season is possibly not as good as the second season, but I think that it is a pretty good anime (animated) television show.

I like how this anime television show adds some elements of Japanese politics and some other more serious real world topics that are not usually featured in animated television shows, and it adds a bit of philosophy.

I also liked the voice work of Mary Elizabeth McGlynn who did the English voice for the character Motoko Kusanagi (The Major), I like her voice, and I like her voice work for this character better than all of the other English voices used for this character throughout the Ghost In The Shell franchise.

    • Hello Locksleyu,

      I agree, Yoko Kanno and Ilaria Graziano and the others did a good job with the music, and I still have some of the songs from this series that I got years ago.

      Thank you for commenting,
      -John Jr
