Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Individual Eleven (2006) is a feature-length OAV, recut from Stand Alone Complex: Second Gig, the second season of the Ghost in the Shell broadcast series. This adventure for Major Kusanagi, Batou, and the other agents of Public Security Section 9 has more pronounced political overtones than the previous story about the arch-hacker, The Laughing Man. Terrorist incidents tied to an underclass of Asian refugees from World War IV threaten to ignite a political powder keg inside Japan. Kusanagi, Batou, and even Chief Aramaki complain about being conscripted to protect Prime Minister Kayabuki from assassination attempts--until they uncover a link between the murderers and the terrorism campaign. The threats lead to The Individual Eleven, a cell headed by the charismatic Hideo Kuze. The actions of the Eleven recall the May 15th Incident. (On May 15, 1932, a group of junior naval officers and army cadets assassinated Prime Minister Inukai Tsuyoshi, ensuring that power would remain in the hands of the militarists.) Their bloody mass suicide echoes the theatrical death of writer Yukio Mishima, who committed seppuku when he failed to rouse the Japanese Self Defense Forces to revive emperor worship in 1970. In his efforts to improve the status of the refugees, Kuze employs suicide bombers and Russian mobsters selling stolen plutonium: an escalating drama played against the strained relations between Japan and an Imperial America that is trying to reassert its military dominance in the face of economic weakness. An interesting secondary plot involves the Tachikoma robots speculating that as they abandon collective consciousness and develop individuality, a dependence on the Net is leading humans in the opposite direction. Individual Eleven and Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C.--2nd Gig are both entertaining: it becomes a question of whether the viewer prefers the original episodes or a more tightly edited feature. (Rated 13 and older: violence, violence against women, brief nudity, alcohol, drug and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Product Description

The year is 2030, and an influx of refugees have effortlessly transformed themselves into a terrorist organization known as the Individual Eleven. With a sadistic intent of mass destruction, will they triumph in victory or discover the gloomy pitfalls of defeat?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cut of the series February 8, 2008
It's not obvious from the product page here on Amazon, but this is an edited version of the entire 26 episode series. It has been cut down to 2.5 hours for a movie experience. It is a good buy if you have already seen the entire series or don't want to spend the time which would be upwards of 9 hours if watched as 26 episodes. It gets the idea of the story, but of course, some good things are lost. Personally, I think GITS is too good not to see all of the details.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacking Somewhat in Detail.... March 6, 2008
By C. Hair
I should have read the box myself before buying this "recut". Had I not already seen the original, I might have a little trouble following what's going on. Entire episodes from the original full length storyline are explained away in a single scene or sentence.
I guess that had to be done for times sake, but you do seem to loose much of the detail and nuance of the story. To me it feels 'rushed' to tell its story rather than letting the viewer develop along with the plot line.
I'd much rather watch the originals.

2.0 out of 5 stars Different English voice cast from GitS:SAC. October 12, 2009
Just like GitS: The Laughing Man, it just sounds "wrong" with different actors. Kusanagi has no anguish, Batou has no menace, and Aramaki has no wisdom.

And you can buy the "Anime Legends" full season collection of GitS:SAC 2nd Gig for less than $20 more. That makes GitS: Individual Eleven is a poor value in my book.

2.0 out of 5 stars WARNING - Recut from Original December 29, 2007
I guess this is the danger of not reading the box. I started to watch this 'recut' version and kept asking myself "where is the scene where...happened". It is much better to obtain the entire series than pay for the "recut". I am very disappointed and will be returning my unopened "laughing man" recut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eleven Clay Men March 20, 2009
Verified Purchase
This is the second season concentrated down to 2hrs. and 40 min. For those of you who don't have the time or inclination to go through the 7 DVD series here is a way to get the essentials in an intense and violent way. I have already viewed it several times and actually prefer this two-DVD set to the whole Second Gig. While a lot is left out if you never saw the original you wouldn't know it. It holds together as a lengthy movie and has a lot of action. My understanding is the English voice actors aren't the same but I couldn't tell it. It really does save time and is entertaining besides. [Ed. note: the original 660 minute "Ghost in the Machine S.A.C. 2nd GIG" of which this is edited from is well worth the viewing. "The Individual Eleven" puts a whole season into one great movie.]
