  • A very intelligent and intriguing anime show.

    I just started watching this show online about a month ago and I find it very interesting and entertaining. Ths show is set a little over 20 years into the future in a society where many people possess cyber-brains. Some people may be complete cyborgs. The title of the show refers to a person's soul inside a cyborg hence the name Ghost in the Shell. The series focuses on a specialized crime investigation unit named Section 9. The people in this unit investigate crimes such as cyber-hacking, which has become commonplace in this society, that require skills outside the area of regular police work in order to solve them. Some criminal cases that the detectives of Section 9 have had their hands full on is the Laughing Man and the Individual Eleven. The reason that this series of Ghost in the Shell is named Stand Alone Complex is because criminal cases such as these are about one person committing criminal acts that bring random people together to commit the same criminal acts. Overall, this is a great show. If you like Sci-Fi action shows than this is the show you've been looking for.
