Product Description

Product Description

The revolutionary leader Kuze manages to elude Section 9 once more. There’s no time for Section 9 to recover though, because soon the threat of a nuclear weapon has the entire city of Nagasaki evacuated. Section 9 must then rush to the scene and determine the true origins of the bomb. The government declares Martial Law, and sends in the Self-Defense Forces to restore order. As the group from Section 9 works to prevent a nuclear explosion and unravel the truth behind these events, one random shot escalates the conflict to new heights!

4.0 out of 5 stars Only 3 Episodes...bummer. Aug. 4 2006
By CC Crespo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was kind of annoyed this box set only included episodes 21, 22, and 23. Then I found out, Volume 07 will include the last 4 episodes of this series. So we are getting pretty close to the end, which is unfortunate for fans of the series.

Regardless, with the limited edition version, you get the usual 2 Disc DVDs (Disc 1-DD audio, Disc 2-DTS audio) and this time around we get the following 2 figurines; Tachikoma (Vulcan Type) & President and Maid (Secret).

I haven't viewed the 3 episodes yet, which include 21-'Embarrasment', 22-'Reversal', 23-'Martial Law'. I'm still waiting for a new widescreen HDTV display to view it on. However, based on the rest of the series which I've thoroughly enjoyed, I am counting on more of the same top notch production values with the usual solid storyline.

There are already rumors of a 3rd GIG series coming out in Japan this winter...keep your fingers crossed.

Meanwhile, in the here and now, this is easily the best anime drama series out there. If you still haven't watched this series, I strongly urge you to give it a try. Nothing comes close to the maturity found in this adult storyline/plot. You have to go back to the original Ghost in the Shell movie or even AKIRA for this kind of production value in an anime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Philosophically heavy sure, but then thats GITS Aug. 6 2006
By Charlie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The entire GITS universe, whether it be the original manga, motion pictures, or the adapted TV series, are all heavily philosophical so I'm not sure why the last reviewer bothers to complain. These next episodes set up the confrontations later with Kuze to illustrate his true intentions as a radical reformist but needs the cover of a terrorist to strike fear into the government. The episodes are consistent, driven, and well acted so I can't see giving this less than five stars. If you're not able to unweave the philosophical web of dialogue that GITS (or The Matrix) lays before you then I suggest you find a brainless action film that the general public is used to having explained for them...you'll only get frustrated with this kind of complicated thinking.
4.0 out of 5 stars Who did the packaging?? Oct. 21 2006
By Jason Faries - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy the series. But who's idea was it to put the second series special editions in tins?! They are virtually impossible to get the DVD out. The potential for some to crack the disk is too great. And the tins take up twice the space as a normal clam shell dvd box. The makers may think it is cool as a collectable, but I think it is really annoying. Keep with the clam shell covers!
