Mishi’s top picks for Otaku
This movie is real straight Science Fiction anime. It was made a long time ago(1995) but it is a great movie that you can watch anytime. The graphics are not good as comparing to the latest anime but if you think about it this movie is in 1995, it is good graphics for that time period. That part will make you feel it is old but I am sure that the story and the worldview of this movie will overcome the graphics. Ghost in the Shell 2.0 and Ghost in the Shell 25th anniversary edition have some scenes that are Computer Graphic but only some parts. The sound itself has been improved but all of them are the same story so if you have one of them, I think it should be fine unless you are a super otaku for Ghost in the Shell. （≧∇≦）〃
2029 is coming closer and closer. I wonder this would happen in our real life! What do you think?? (゜Д゜) It is scary to see that will happen. Everything in this world is being simplified day by day. But I don’t think I want this brain in my head! This makes me think that our future will be this way eventually. This movie makes you think many things while you are watching. It might be a little bit too hard to understand if you watch without knowing the background of this movie but if you pay attention to this movie, I think you will understand. There are Manga and anime versions of Ghost in the Shell so you can easily compensate the part of what you can’t get. This movie is not the type of movie that you relax and watch. You want to catch up with what is going on while the story is going. It is because this movie contains a bit of philosophical way.
Even though, I love the worldview of Ghost in the Shell. The story is deep and impressive. The atmosphere of this movie seems to be dark but it makes us think about practical ethics, a moral and so on. As many times as you will watch, you can get to understand and realize many things on this movie more and more. As if you are chewing gum! You know what I am saying right?? (,,ﾟДﾟ)∩ It is a very interesting story for human and robot. I really won’t know what is human or cyborg if this story came into our world in the future. For in case this would happen in the world, we should start to think about this and make a rule of it before our sense of value will start to be destroyed. It is astonishing that this movie has been made before the internet spread around in the world. This movie has predicted our future life from old time and maybe, really the world of Ghost in the Shell would come! Lol, That is what I am thinking! It is crazy but you can’t deny this movie at all.
As you probably know that this movie has been a legend in the world. If you don’t know this movie, you should watch it right away! It is worth to watch it even though it has been made in old time. I do recommend this movie to all people who like to watch anime. Without this movie, you will not be able to talk about anime. (-＿-) I am not exaggerating at all! Ask your friend if you think I am wrong! I hope you will have a chance to watch this movie!
