 Locus Online: Lawrence Person reviews Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Among the best series to be released over here is Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (henceforth GitS:SAC), a TV series based on the original Ghost in the Shell movie (which was, in turn, based on Shirow Masamune's original manga series).
At its best, GitS:SAC is the most interesting, sustained postcyberpunk media work in existence, intellectually (if not visually) superior to the original movie, and almost worthy of direct comparison to the post/cyberpunk works which inspired it.
The Stand Alone Episodes are a mixed bag, with Section 9 tackling a variety of cybercriminals, terrorists, potential assassins, and government corruption, and include some of the worst episodes.
