  • This episode was an interesting homage to Taxi Driver, but as anything else, it’s not very good when compared to the rest of the anime

      Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Episode 2 is the strangest episode in the entire Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex anime, in both seasons, because it does not follow any of the main characters, it is not about any of them and doesn’t enhance the plot at all. We just follow around a war veteran named Gino who is depressed and tries to escape his depression with vengeance

      fantasies.

      This episode has to be the strangest episode for any episode in an anime. It is just a long homage to the movie Taxi Driver. It has good acting and the animation is nice, but the fact that the plot goes absolutely nowhere is rather strange.

      This is probably the worst Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: 2nd Gig episode, because it doesn’t really fit in with the ...


      • rest of the anime. It doesn’t move plot, and it doesn’t even work as filler because only the Major and Batou make cameo appearances and even they don’t really matter in this episode. So if you buy the DVD, please skip this episode, because it is the worst way of not doing anything because it’s just there to be there.

        Overall, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd is a

        great anime, with the exception of this episode. This episode was an interesting homage to Taxi Driver, but as anything else, it’s not very good when compared to the rest of the anime. Skip this one if you’re looking for the main plot because this isn’t it.

        Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Second Gig is available on DVD from Manga Entertainment. You can buy it on Amazon.com or RightStuf.com.
