5.0 out of 5 stars Best Anime ever! March 16 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The item arrived very fast. And I always wanted to have my own collection of GTIS. The series is definitely orientated toward adults as the animation style, voice acting, and story line are suited for mature audience. The English DUB is superb, if you like more mature anime, this is it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Anime Aug. 18 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The price was pretty fair for the entire series. The focus of this series is the Laughingman Case, an unresolved case in which a crazy unknown guy took some guy hostage and tried to make him spit out the truth behind a conspiracy. The police force Section 9 ends up solving it. Add in some cool action, great voice acting (sub and dub), nice music, and Major Kusanagi dressed like a hooker for reasons I never found out and you've got a hit. My only criticism is that this series does the same thing that many sci-fi anime series do. They put you in this world but they don't explain it until later. It's nowhere near as bad as Eureka Seven, but I'd rather have a real synopsis of the future than just letting you figure it out as you go. Nevertheless, it's a great series.

5.0 out of 5 stars nearly perfect March 5 2013
By Daniel
This series takes the best elements of the manga *and* the movie adaptation, along with some very cool new story ideas. The "Laughing Man" story is one of the best in cyberpunk, and meshes perfectly with "stand-alone" episodes that give depth and detail to some of the characters from the team who don't normally get much time on-screen.
Caveat: I haven't seen this collection, I watched the original north-america DVD releases. The dub and subtitles on that release were great, the special features were okay but I probably wouldn't watch them again.
