  1. So… No Appleseed, Battle Angel Alita, Dimension W, Gunslinger Girl or the Mardock Scramble movies ? Okay !

  2. Idk the list is awesome but I would put

    1 ergo proxy
    2 psycho pass
    3 cow boy bebop
    4 ghost in a shell
    everything else would go up 1

  3. Ah, yes, Cowboy Bebop. tried starting it – then jumped directly to where Ed enters. I need no heavy drama. Isn’t there a comedic-like cyber-punk anime with far less space in it?

  4. I like Cowboy Bebop the anime is mostly neo-noir and space western. I do agree it is mixture of genres: drama, comedy, action, adventure, space opera, utopia/dystopia.

  5. GITS is simply amazing. All of it… not the latest live action movie, but the rest is just amazing
