     Collecting Shells just got cool!

    I'm a first time 'GITS' viewer and so was not sure what to expect.
    A very well animated production with good plot lines and a cinematic approach to the storboarding giving it a superior quality feel. E.G. The cars used are detailed and not generic. The watch on a characters wrist a chronograph with all the right detail.
    Use of the music is good and the use of 'stand alone' story episodes, with a 'complex' (i.e multipart) story episode is sure to make you wanting to see more.
    On the negative side, the whinny voices of the cool looking 'tachikoma' tank things, spoil the overall effect, but somehow the flaw adds to the charm.
    Unfeasibly dressed female lead is not actually directly exploited so hey, my 'modern man' credentials remain intact (I think!)
    If you think you may like this, chances are you will, volume 2 has just been ordered and I can't wait to see the next 4 episodes.
