I never watched Ghost in the shell but I've been wanting to for some time now. Where do i start?
You torrent it and fucking watch it. What do I have to tell you how to blink too?
Start with the 1995 movie. If you like it, SAC. If you like it, go for everything else.
It's always airing order.
you start with the first ghost in the shell movie
then you can watch the 2nd movie, or you can watch the anime (stand alone complex) seasons 1 and 2, followed by Solid State Society (the OVA set after season 2), followed by the 2nd movie
i prefer the latter but it's up to you
can't comment on the manga as i've never read it
