Just a few days after my birthday.

Nice.

EDIT: Also, people badmouthing SAC? Man what.

SAC was excellent.
Did you ever see that Code Geass spin-off about Nunnally?

Neither did she.

Hopefully this isn't terrible like SAC.
Lol....good one.
Although I was baiting somewhat, I wasn't joking, haha. For a renowned action show I was shocked by how bland and boring the visuals were. But ultimately what made me drop it were the laughable moments of reflection at the end of each episode. "Wait... what if the killer just wanted to be loved??" *camera pans cityscape* "YEAHHHHHH!" They were like something straight out of a bad cop show.

You may want to check out the condensed version that involves the main plot alone:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/2449/Ghost_in_the_Shell:_Stand_Alone_Complex_-_The_Laughing_Man

Many people get bored with the individual episodes (some of which are genuinely bad) and never even reach the complex ones. You can do the same for season two (http://myanimelist.net/anime/2448/Ghost_in_the_Shell:_Stand_Alone_Complex_2nd_GIG_-_Individual_Eleven), although the individual episodes there are of much better quality.

Don't waste your time, he scored the GITS 6 so he is clearly not interested in the GITS franchise. It's probably too ridicilous/absurd for him.

Thanks, I think I'll try that actually. I was under the impression the entire show was episodic.

Thanks for the insight, detective. You almost didn't neglect the fact that 6 is above average on my list, lol.

An unintentional joke then...

You could have at least given it until the Laughing Man story started. I can't guarantee you'll like it though, but it's definitely the best part of the first season. But, then again, I liked most of the stand alone episodes, so it's obvious we don't really see eye to eye regarding this series or I guess the franchise as a whole.

Is your list saying that you dropped SAC after two episodes accurate? I'd assume you saw more if the "end of episode reflection" stuff bothered you, as presumably it would only bother if it happened a lot.

My opinion is similar to hentai_proxy's. The first season is very good, but the Laughing Man episodes are the real meat of it. The "Individual" episodes, as they're aptly called, are hit and miss. I did like most of them but Laughing Man is where it's at.

2nd GIG was more consistent in quality from episode to episode. If you do try the Laughing Man summary version (which I haven't seen, so I can't speak to how well it covers the material) and end up liking it, then I'd strongly recommend trying 2nd GIG in its entirety before going straight to the the highlights version.

Yeah, it's accurate. Two episodes was enough to bother me, lol. Sometimes I try to give well-received shows a "fair chance", but I just wasn't enjoying it enough to do that. Interesting to see that the Laughing Man arc starts only two episodes later.

But anywho, I'm going to give the Laughing Man summary version a try and go from there.

The anime staff has kindly provided with help for those who may prefer longer arc to standalone stories (or vice versa)

You can look at the title of the episodes and tell if it is a standalone episode or part of a longer arc. The first 3 episodes have title started with "SA", meaning they are standalone episode. The next 3 episodes (ep.4-6) have title started with "C", meaning they are "complex episodes" where the episodes are linked. They even have the screen colored differently when the title is shown. SC has green color while C has blue.

Ep.3 is where the Laughing Man arc starts.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

I don't really see myself watching this. Psycho-Pass is without a doubt the spiritual successor to GiTS these days, and I'm pretty content with that. There's just too much history with the character design and voice actors for me. Anyone besides Atsuko Tanaka as the main voice of the Major is just too disjointing even if it's Sakamoto. I'd prefer not to go into things with a bias so I'm going to keep my distance.

If there is a spiritual successor to GITS today that would be Mardock Scramble not Psycho-Pass.

I don't recall ever seeing GitS:SAC being referred to as a renowned action show. Sounds like you watched it for the wrong reasons, expecting something entirely diferent. Perhaps you should stick to shows like Naruto, they seem to be more at your depth.

I'm going to sound terrible, but I enjoyed the dub for SAC more than the original audio, but with Bandai gone, who's going to license/dub this?

I was being sarcastic and that was the main focus of the comment, yeah. I agreed with him up until that part.

The trailer looks pretty good. Seems like they kinda managed to capture the essence of the show. The changed character designs will take getting used to (some more than others), but I'm looking forward as to what they com up with for Motoko's past. Don't ruin her Production I.G!

looking forward to it, a bit surprised and disappointed with the restructured look of Motoko, if I recall, there was an entire episode in the anime series depicted during her time in the military too, and she didn't look anything like the new look in that one :P

Erggghh.. That's the sound that's going through my head.
I don't know if it's the sound of disappointment, confusion, frustration, or what.
But I do know it's not a happy sound.

To go from the original cinematic masterpiece to this flashy action, motorcycle riding, pandering of the franchise? That's what I get from the trailer.
However, obviously I haven't seen any of the true material, so for now I guess I should hold my tongue.

I'll leave you all with this.. Think about it for awhile..
