I hate when children post on /a/, ruins the entire section and makes me fucking sick.

Take your medication if you can't sit down long enough with action blaring in your face. Jesus fucking christ.

Being a 24 year old man and having a 12 year old kid shit on your tastes is soul crushing. I cry myself to sleep every night anon.
>>
>>133885806

Just letting you know the average age isn't close to 12 but rather between 18-24.

If you seriously can't sit long enough to handle the exposition then drop the serious. It gets more dialogue heavy as it goes on. I used to be like you when I was younger and more impatient for dialogue and dropped it on episode 12. 3 years later when I got back into the series I loved every moment of it and found it to be refreshing.

Watch two episodes a day and take a break if you seriously can't stomach the Kuze arc.
>>
>>133884364

But the show started off slow and got better as it went on. The first three episodes are the most boring of the show.

2nd gig had some really good stand alone episodes but the main plot is way inferior to the first season's
>>
>>133884364
What's wrong with 2nd GIG? It's a lot tighter than the first season, every episode directly contributes in some way.
>>
>>133885921
Not OP. Gits:sac is in my top 10, above mononoke and below tatami galaxy. I was being sarcastic.
>>
>>133884364
Honestly, OP, you should return to your "comfy" moeshit. Ghost in the Shell requires a sharp intellect.

It's true, at least compared to the average /a/non who only watches moeblobs and haremshit

>This Kuze nuke arc is so fucking boring

That's the best arc though. A shame /a/ doesn't talk about it more, probably because it's really political and would attract /pol/ shitposters
>>
>falling for the SAC meme
Stop watching this Toonami shit for MAL retards. The movie is the only thing worth a shit in this series.
>>
>>133884364
I agree with you OP, Kuze is a boring motherfucker and in turn he makes the major a boring character. Her turning into a damsel in distress type character is the worst part of all of both series.

Luckily everything else makes it worthwhile.
>>
>>133890501
This. The movie was good, and the mango was good. Everything else went to shit.
>>
>>133890501
The movie is Okay at best. Sure, it's a better adaptation of the manga, but it's biggest influence was its visuals and existentialist themes.

SAC on the other hand had a much better plot, even if it was independent of the manga, and more fully realized cyberpunk themes by not just focusing on the hacking and transhumanism, but also the government corruption and intrigue found in most cyberpunk works.
>>
>anons don't "get" the Individual Eleven arc because they don't know the history of 20th century Japanese militarism

Seriously, read a book sometime. The whole arc is a reference to several militarist coup attempts in the 1930s, as well as novelist Yukio Mishima's 1970 "coup" and subsequent suicide.
>>
I love everything in the GitS universe but it gets tedious when you have all those scenes of characters dumping exposition with almost no animation. Television is a visual medium and handling exposition is a writer's biggest challenge.

I think you're better off with shounen and moe shit tier anime OP.

Stand alone episodes > complex episodes

>>133887342
This was the best standalone episode of the entire show. Closely followed by the one where Tachikoma runs away and hangs out with a little girl.
>>
>>133891063
That episodes is amazing though you shitstain.

SHE SAID BEAUTY IS WITHIN US, SO LET IT GROOOOOW

>>133891391
No it wasn't you subnigger. It is one of the worst episodes in the entire franchise, a pure lazy text dump that spends most of its time just recapping.

I love GITS so much. I want Motoko to fuck me in the ass.

same but batou

I love the part in the movie where Motoko and Batou sit in a boat and a voice from nowhere quotes Bible.
>>
>>133884364
SAC1 is pretty dull at times but SAC2 is goat
>>
>>133891063
That was my favorite episode desu

2nd Gig just wasn't as good as SAC. It had some high points, but Kuze was nowhere near as interesting as The Laughing Man.

The callbacks to the manga were great, though, as was Batou's fight scene with Kuze.

Is Arise as shit as people claim it is?
>>
>>133890501

The movie was okay. I unquestioningly loved it when I first saw it, but reading the manga made me hate the shit out of it. I've mellowed towards it since then, but it still reeks of Oshii. The guy turns everything he makes into a navel-gazing monologue-fest with occasional bursts of action and beautiful animation. Sometimes it works great (Patlabor 2) sometimes it's just decent (GitS) and sometimes it's unbearable (Innocence, or so I hear).

SAC's got a good balance of the manga's humor and character and the movie's more serious philosophical bent (there's no chibi Major commenting on the Laughing Man's rants).

Also, holy shit. I just realized the movie came out 20 fucking years ago. We're all fucking old.
>>
>>133891965
>Is Arise as shit as people claim it is?

I wouldn't call it shit, the character designs are abysmal and most of the episodes are just pretty mediocre, but that doesn't mean it's actual shit. It's better than Innocence at least.

shut the fuck up

Not really. It's pretty decent.
