Dominion is an extremely strange anime. Masamune Shirow has many ideas and many things to say. Anybody who knows more than the superficial about him knows that he's hard to neatly categorise as an author. Ghost in the Shell is a thought-provoking milestone in the medium coming from that mind and although Dominion is also thought-provoking, it is so in a much meta-textual way. I will presently attempt to articulate why.

From the very second it starts, Dominion appears to present itself as biting commentary on police brutality and excess. The first minutes are spent hearing (voice-off) a heated discussion between a police chief and the ...

Dominion, better known as Dominion Tank Police, can best be described as an utterly goofy depiction of a truly dystopian world. Beginning with the story, the viewer is presented with the backdrop of Newport City. This is a place where a crime occurs every 36 seconds, all while most of the earth is enveloped in a toxic "bacterial cloud', and the police ride around in tanks and torture suspects for fun. However, it is all played for comedy, which in its own way adds to the bizarre, irreverent charm this show puts on. The story itself is disjointed and focuses more on gags and jokes ...
