Synopsis

Ghost in the Shell 1.5: Human-Error Processor presents the "lost" Ghost in the Shell stories, created by Shirow Masamune after completing work on the original Ghost in the Shell manga and prior to his tour-de-force, Ghost in the Shell 2: Man-Machine Interface, but never collected until now. Focusing on Section 9 agents in their daily battle against technocrime, Human-Error Processor has all the mind-twisting cybermadness you've come to expect from Ghost in the Shell but set in a more police-procedural context with action and suspense galore.

We open the story in the middle of a new case involving a cyber-criminal disturbingly similar to the Puppeteer. Someone has hijacked read more

I'll be concise here.
The original Ghost in the Shell manga is a true gem in the world of manga, philosophy and cyberpunk.
1.5 is a set of stories that didn't make it to either the original or 2, and were released after 2.

This one doesn't have the same amount of speculative content as the original, and its short, independent cases are less memorable.
The charismatic Major is almost entirely absent. Togusa, Batou and Aramaki get the spotlight.
The absence of an overarching plotline is one of the biggest weaknesses here. Further, there is only one major philosophical theory that Masamune appears to be presenting throughout the read more
