So, I've caught a few episodes of this on Adult Swim and it made me want to go and get the copy of the Ghost in the Shell movie that I've seen a dozen or more times, but still don't own. Along with this, I decided to pick up the DVDs for the show, mostly because I hate the commerical interruptions.
These DVDs are loaded with extras and you can even get special versions with schwag like a t-shirt and the CD soundtrack.
I recorded the intro to the the show with my cybershot and uploaded it for you guys. It's around 85 seconds long and a fat 7.8MB, but I think its very CP and will give you a taste of the flavor. View it here.
The intro is done in CGI, but the show is anime with CGI effects, just like the movie. It's so much like the movie that it just feels right. :)
