The Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society is now available here and in the anime reviews section.
I’ve had the pleasure of reading the entire Ghost in the Shell manga and watching the original movie (about six or seven times) and all the GITS:SAC media. Among those my all times favorites are the first season of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and the Solid State Society. The first season of GITS:SAC advanced the franchise forward by being more coherent and more informative than its predecessors. Solid State Society goes one step further and redirects GITS back to its manga roots without taking away from its TV charm. It’s an intricate movie, yet less demanding than its older siblings. I hope to eventually cover the entire GITS spectrum here on Anime Reviews. But for now I’m just satisfied by how good Solid State Society turned out to be.
