by on November 28, 2006
And hereby ends the second season of the animated “Ghost in the Shell” with the DVD release of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG Volume 7 – and complex is an appropriate word for those who have not been following the current story arc.

I laughed very frequently as the comedy meter has been cranked to max. As with the first two volumes, we get six episodes. Part of why I love this show is that, […]
