Customer Reviews of Ghost in the Shell-Stand Alone Complex
Ghost in the Shell was one of my first exposures to Japanese feature length anime. It was at its time a superb technical and artistic achievement, and still is today, despite the number o anime series that have borrowed from it. Now a new venture brings the same contest to the more intimate anime experience. And once again the durability of the plot and ideas are demonstrated to a new audience. This is a must own DVD.
