Ghost In The Shell

This week Masamune Shirow's Ghost In The Shell has been on my mind a lot, I've been rewatching a subtitled dvd of GITS 2 Innocence that I picked up in Sydney's Chinatown last January… I still can't help but be blown away by the it, the story / visuals every time, breathtaking. Then on Friday The Irish Times reviewed Innocence to coincide with the screening of an English dubbed version on limited cinema release locally. Also today while browsing the 3 for 30 euro section at Xtravision I spotted Vol's 1 and 2 of Stand Alone Complex, the GITS animated tv series, and a copy of the first movie (to replace the Divx copy I have) so I snatched them up… The movie dvd features a nice music video by Sly and Robbie, a Japanese ambient music meets dub type ting… Then there's the sequel of sorts to Innocence in novel form where Batou looks for his dog and in the process questions if he has a soul… and the Stand Alone Complex 'Gig 1' (first series) box set out mid Nov… and the Subtitled Gig 2 boxset out now… plenty of brain-hacking, net-jacking, cybercrime fighting, cyborg soul searching for the winter and beyond :D
