Product Description

Amazon.ca

As the second season of Stand Alone Complex continues, it remains edgier and more contemporary than the first. The agents of Public Security Section 9 face a new crisis as the conflict over the status of the refugees worsens: suicide bombers attacking public targets in Japan. Kuze, the would-be assassin of the Prime Minister, whom Major Kusanagi outwitted, is deliberately fueling that crisis. When the Major encounters sinister Kazundo Gohda in cyberspace, the viewer learns the significance of the term Stand Alone Complex. But the most intriguing story development is an apparent digression that hints at the Major's origins. The desgners make increasing use of CG to give the abstract cyberworld a physical reality that is stylistically different from the regular settings. Extras include interviews with animation directors Kenichi Takeshita and Toshiyuki Kono, and series director Kenji Kamiyama. (Rated 13 and older: violence, violence against women, brief nudity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

By Xeon Negotiator - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This volume gets right to the heart of the plot, and raises important questions. Who really is Gohda? Where is the next refugee threat coming from? Who tried to kill the Prime Minster, and what roll does he play in the Individual Eleven? Is there a terrorist virus causing another stand alone complex? Can Togusa finds his way clear of criminal charges? Also, we all know The Major, but what of her past?

5.0 out of 5 stars Vol. 3 rules Jan. 25 2006
By Kathy Foss - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Wow this volume of the second gig series is sweet. There is a ton of action in all the episodes and the CG sequences are better than ever. Furthermore, you also finally get clued-in on the majors past and who Goda is.

The sound/music of this dvd is amazing. In these 4 episodes, more so than the last 8, the producers have heavily mixed in some of the best and mostly unheard of, GITS OST music scores- over the action and over the dialogue, making each episode have more of a movie like flow.

Also what's even more impressive is that for the first time, in a long while, you actually get to see a fully CG animated ghost dive.

Now as for the Tachikoma's, they are in full force in this DVD, however, there jobs are a bit different than usual, they get to help the Section 9 crew ghost dive!, yea and there humor is also intact in this volume as well.

As I said before, very impressive for a continuation of the series, definitely a must see

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what Anime should be March 16 2010

Serious, robotic, intelligent, with a smokin' cartoon cyborg chick. I'm bored of fantasy anime, I want more science fiction! If you are not on the GitS bandwagon yet, you are dumb.
4.0 out of 5 stars Stand Alone Complex, story continues March 16 2009
By H. Villarreal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I liked this series, but in my opinion, the puppeteer hacker character is not quite as good as ths laughing man storyline of original Stand Alone Complex, and the message is not quite as profound. This still has great animation, but just didn't hold my interest like the other SAC's did. I still favor the original movie best of all.
