Editorial Reviews

The Prime Minister is taken into custody, but her removal from office is being kept secret. Aramaki and Togusa work to get to her so they can prevent a nuclear attack. In Dejima, the military begins its assault. The Major and some of Section 9 try their best to defuse the situation, and the injured Ishikawa tries to deliver the rest of the plutonium to the authorities to prove their case. During the fighting, the Major and Kuze become trapped beneath the rubble together. The Tachikomas inform her that there is a nuclear submarine just out of sensor range. Batou, meanwhile, gets the rangers who are pursuing them to stop fighting and listen to him. Things are starting to go Section 9’s way, but the nuclear missile is still being prepared for launch! The explosive second season of Ghost in the Shell ends now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational January 19, 2007
Format:DVD
Most animes are not inspirational. That doesn't mean they're not good, they can be really good but to be inspirational is yet another optional step to connect with a certain audience. The reason I like SAC 2nd Gig is because there is really no one "bad guy" that must be vanguished for the world to make sense again and morality to be reinstalled. The world never makes sense from the very beginning, and it continues to be enigmatic up until the very end. Some people would call this an unresolved story. I call it a genuine emulation of the real world. A world where even though teamwork and communities work hard to bring about a better world, individuals still feel very lonely. Isn't that everyone's real dilemna? Even with so many friends, why are we so lonely? The fact that our behavior is fueled primarily by neurochemical stimulation and plasticity does not make this existential crisis any better. What do we do? Some of us resort to fables and fairy tales to get some sleep at night. Others become megalomaniacs (Kuze, Gouda). Others try to restore (install) some sense of justice to the world (Motoko, Batou and Section 9). Others put all their efforts into worshipping and following a hero (refugees). Believe it or not, some people just withstand it and go on with life disregarding all injustices and just attempting to live a life of comfort and security. (Japanese citizens, Nietzche's Last Man). It is very evident solitude is a key theme in SAC 2nd Gig. It is also evident the writers of this show are very erudite. In a way, 2nd GIG is like a pastiche of real life and various existentialist works (I detected abit of Nietzsche, Sartre, Dostoevsky, and Kierkegaard).

If you're a fan of overthinking plotlines and creating structures and comparisons that never existed in the first place. This is a gold mine. If you just want a good anime, this is also a good anime. But I urge you to let it tickle your brain a little. Let it create a spark.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite worth the price May 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD to complete the set. Unfortunately, I started building the set before the new Ghost in the Shell: Anime Legends 2nd Gig complete set was released, so I overpaid a bit for the whole series.
The series gets a 5 out of 5. Great animation, good story, and less annoying Tachikoma.

5.0 out of 5 stars What you would expect! February 8, 2008
Format:DVD
This is what you would expect from the team that makes this awsome film and series! Visuals are as always, Top notch in the anime world, with thought provoking story lines, that make it so you can't wait to watch the next episode in the series. If you like you anime like i do with realistic looking charaters, and just alaround good damn movie. you have to have this in your collection, along with the whole series!

5.0 out of 5 stars GITS owns us May 22, 2007
Format:DVD
GITS is perhaps my fav. anime of all time. and this dvd is perhaps the best of them all. of course you need to see the rest of the sieries to get to this dvd, but let me tell you. once you get here. it was all worth it! I've been known to just watch this dvd over and over with out bothering with the rest of the sieries.

not like any of the other dvds are bad though....

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Series. January 3, 2007
Format:DVD
This is the final volume of the series and all I could really say at the end was "wow". If you've enjoyed any sci-fi anime in the past, this series is for you. Great way to finish things off for the Stand Alone Complex series, the only down side is, now I'm really looking forward to Solid State Society!
