Sci-fi series masterclass

Some of the finest sci-fi series I've seen come from the Japanese animation studios. The producers and writers focus on creating something that is more than simply an action series, a problem that plagues too many sci-fi series. Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex is one of the best examples. It's a potent and provocative mix of action, philosophy, politics, futurism, war, sociology along with... read more

"" Since the time of its release, all parts of the "Ghost in the Shell" series have become extremely popular, specially in the West. It has received a positive response from many critics. The Cyberpunk anime is mainly directed towards an adult audience due to its complex themes and literary references. Again, it's a must-watch! ""

"In the not so distant future, mankind has advanced to a state where complete body transplants from flesh to machine is possible. This allows for great increases in both physical and cybernetic prowess and blurring the lines between the two worlds. However, criminals can also make full use of such technology, leading to new and sometimes, very dangerous crimes. In response to such innovative new methods, the Japanese Government has established Section 9, an independently operating police unit whi"

"I know I am before a series of exceptional quality when every episode delivers a story of great depth, emotion and reflection. GitS is an eternal classic, where every character is unique and of extreme importance to the plot, no matter how minor his role may be. Everything in this series is simply phenomenal, from art to execution, I can't recommend this enough to anyone, especially for fans of cyberpunk content. This is cyberpunk at its very highest level."
