Review: Ghost in the Shell – 2nd GIG


Plot Summary: In the future, life between the digital and physical world has been blurred. The boundary of technology and humanity has been stretched beyond imagination with lives being led in both the electronic and physical worlds. With the melding of man and machine – a new cybernetic level of existence is being created – An existence that continues to redefine mankind.

Public Security Section 9 has managed to come back together after the Laughing Man incident and this time under a new administration. Things are tight around Section 9 and the eye is now on them, with tensions building up in Japan between the Japanese the Refugees. Incidents starting taking place calling themselves The Individual 11 and their goal is to free the refugees using their own tactics. There is more happening here then meets the eye, and this time the Major and Bato have it up to their necks. This is a mind blowing anime where they kept the story line fresh and the action is amazing. With Ghost in the Shell 2nd Gig the animation is set a bar so high very few will be able to reach it. They have done the story and animation justice with the 2nd series of Ghost in the Shell, unlike the first one you feel a little bit more connection to Section 9 and its team since you get a bit of their history. When you watch it you go through it in one sitting, its amazing you won’t get enough. I was disappointed when the show ended since I want to see more, and I’m hoping at some point they will make another series of Ghost in the Shell.
