ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
This is by far the best anime out there right now. Between the superb animation and the writing which leaves most Hollywood movies in the dust, you can't lose. It blurs the lines between fantasy and reality and delivers a level of realism that remains relevant with the current state of things. Simply put; ITS A KNOCKOUT!
gits season 2
Quite simply, the best show on television.GITS is phenomenal,mature,thought provoking and relevant to current events. I have not been so impressed by any speculative work of fiction since Frank Herberts' Dune.It's that good.A real work of art.Season 3 please.
