So i spent a lot of time in march catching up with Ghost In The Shell stuff and one of the things really stood out and that was Stand Alone Complex. I love stand alone complex to me it was amazing and it expanded on everything that the original movie did. To me what i love most about stand alone complex is how it explores section 9 and how it explores the characters of section 9. We finally get to see bits of backstory of these characters and i love how we get more of the character from the major which i really love also i really love how the major looks in section 9.
Both of the seasons really explores complex subjects but i loved how the 2nd season explored refugees, suicide bombers and how they follow one person to change the world, its very interesting to watch part of this world. Also i loved the laughing man in the first season he was a great villain but also complex and makes you think is he really a villain? the villains of the 2nd season are also very interesting but the backstory of the villains in ghost in the shell are some of the most interesting things in stand alone complex.
The music in stand alone complex gives it this epic feel but a feel from the original movie and something i enjoy i even love listening to the music when i am not watching the anime. The music just fits perfectly like with the last 5 episodes of season one which are some of the best episodes i have watched and with the music it just gives this feel of perfection.
The movie The Solid State Society gives it this ending which fits perfectly and works with the major not part of section 9 but she is off doing her own thing which was interesting and i love how they bring back a certain famous Ghost In The Shell character. The movie ending gives stand alone complex the perfect ending.
Overall stand alone complex is the best ghost in the shell anime i have watched and over the last month or so i have watched a lot of Ghost In The Shell anime. I love how it’s a deep anime and explores a lot of themes from the movie but explores newer themes like the internet and such but it develops this characters and we learn even more about these characters which i think i love the most. Stand Alone Complex is now in my top 10 anime of all time.
