Let's be honest here, Ghost in the Shell is actually quite boring.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

Except you.

Actually, I agree with you OP.
I never liked postapocalyptic anime though.
I didn't like the soul and self blabbing either, I just fapped to the scene where Motoko is built

Ghost in the Shell: 'Philosophy for the uneducated'.

AMIRITE?

Let's be honest here, Naruto is actually the best anime ever.
>>
only for people with ADD
>>
the ghost in the shell movies were boring outside of the climaxs

SAC was great
>>
>>10194024
I thought it dragged a bit in parts, yes. But that doesn't mean it wasn't deep. It revolutionised the anime industry.
>>
My 12 year old nephew agrees with you.
>>
>quite boring
>>
What's the matter? Too BORING for you?
>>
I agree, but I was too scared to say anything. I just wanted to fit in. Maybe there are more of us out there.
>>
>>10194069
what do you mean by revolutionized?
What other anime did it influence?
>>
still havnt finished it yet.. it is somewhat boring but i heard theres actually an overall story in the anime not just random missions.
>>
>>10194146
Gurren Lagann, the greatest masterpiece of our time, was partly inspired by Ghost in the Shell.
>>
>>10194146
for example innocence and sac, for example?

what part of gl takes from gits?
Or you mean Nakashima watched gits and said "Here be Kamina!"
>>
>>10194146
Are you a goddamn retard?
>>
some of the shit discussed in Ghost are the topics of most the mandatory phil courses in colleges
so if its too boring/complexed i've got some bad news for you
>>
>>10194250
Seconded. I need to hear this one.

I can kind of see where the idea is coming from, but I don't see the evidence to support it beyond "Think about it! It kind of makes sense!"
>>
erm, I think that half of us are talking about the movie and half about SAC. the movie was fucking amazing. SAC wasn't deep but it was much smarter than most.
>>
>>10194229

lmao what
>>
>>10194234
I beg you pardon?
>>
It perplexes me that people think Gurren Lagann was inspired by anything other than super robots and merchandise sales.
>>
>>10194269
He probbaly said it too fast for you.

what he meant was god damn retard.

I only care about the Tachikomas.
>>
>>10194255
I've been watching anime for a while now and I have yet to see an anime dealing with deep thoughts without banalizing them
>>
Hey, OP here.

I haven't even watched it, I just thought I'd say it was boring and see what people said.
>>
>>10194295
Yeah, you would just need to watch any Nagaian robo anime to understand where 70-80% of gl comes from
>>

Have you seen Lucky Star? Uses food as complex metaphors for the problems facing our society in the modern age of enlightenment.

It's all good to talk about whether ghost in the shell is good or not, but I was just wondering: does Motoko poop?
>>
If only the anime series was done with equal quality with the movies.

>>10194262
Douchebag. GL did try to desperatedly refer to such great artist as Enki Bilal like Gits and even EVA had done in the past. But basically even the references in it are poorly done ripoff.
>>
>>10194305
Please tell me some feature of gits which has influenced anime.
I'm serious.

Even saying you read it in your local anime club fanzine is fine.
>>
Less questioning of this influence nonsense and more explanation of this pancake crystal elderly phenom.
>>
>>10194404

I read it in my local anime club fanzine.
>>
>>10194404
The Matrix was inspired by GitS, and that's a pretty damn famous movie, if not anime.

ITT: 17 year olds pretend to be inteligent because they watched DEEP ANIME about problems that get covered in comunity college phil 101.

>>10194366
You've got my attention.

Anyway, I'd say to check the manga out. There's lots more exposition before the Puppet Master crap, which leaves plenty more time to get acquainted with Section 9's staff, and there's even some brief fanservice (in color, no less!) thrown in. I'd say it's a better read than it is a... viewing?

That said, stay the hell away from Ghost in the Shell 2. It's like they made a manga entirely out of the boring philosophical bullshit from the movie.

All it really was was a well-timed Cyberpunk cartoon. It got animu on a lot of mainstream radars in the west.
That's about it.
>>
SAC was fairly good.
The Oshii movies (Gits and Innocence) were musterpieces.
>>
wow at trolls taking shots at GITS
>>
>>10194487
ITT assclowns
>>
ITT 20+ year-olds appreciating a movie for its amazing visual design, and the way it presents its ideas in a manner that's consistent and easy to grasp.

Okay. So no one is doing that, but you should be!

>>10194489
exactly what I thought

Guess I'll come out also, I really just turned off my brain and watch GiS movie for the animations, and used GiS tv series to go to sleep on
>>
The original GITS movie hasn't aged well, and Innocence was bad from the beginning.

Standalone Complex however, is a pretty great series.
>>
>>10194602
>Innocence was bad from the beginning
Might I recomend Naruto? I believe you will like it.

<~~
>>
>>10194676

You'd honestly try to argue that is has?

GITS 1 suffers from the same kind of thing as Akira - the thing which made it so famous is that it was new and unique at the time it struck it big. Now that many years have passed and the concepts and styling seen in it are more common it doesn't hold up nearly as well because the substance under the surface isn't as strong.

Also, the movie character designs are fucking ugly.


>>10194628 Might I recomend Naruto? I believe you will like it.

You could recommend something that isn't shallow as hell but pretends to have depth by assaulting the viewer with quotation after quotation in a manner completely out of character for the characters doing it, for one thing.
>>
>>10194065
What's the matter? Too DEEP for you?
>>
>>10194800
i fucking knew it...
why am i not surprised that you're mentioning akira too?
anyways,i would agree with your opinion only if you can name at least TWO newer movies/series utilizing the same concept as GitS,because i honestly don't think that the original movie has lost its uniqueness.

as for the designs - its up to the individual's personal taste,its pointless to argue about it.
