Scrapped Princess and Ghost in the Shell
I just got done watching Scrapped Princess and I enjoyed it. As has been described earlier on this blog it's a show about a princess who is prophesied to destroy the world when she turns 16. Luckily, the show starts off with a fairly light feel. I found the show really enjoyable. Just enough of a glimmer of the plot, interesting characters, nice animation. It all fit together quite well. And, it's a Bones show. So far I like these guys a lot. This is definitely one I'll be watching more of.
I also just finished up the second Ghost in the Shell episode for this month. While I found the first one a little enh, this one I enjoyed a lot. I think because it really kind of fit a lot of what I think of as the cyberpunk feel. While lots of cyberpunk stuff seems to really concentrate on the action side of things, GitS also pays attention to all the background parts. There's the whole behind the scenes part to that genre. Where money rules everything. Yes, the episode was a little predictable, but it worked for me. And it also had one of the more interesting weapons I've ever seen. We're now just over halfway through the series and I'm starting to wonder how everything fits together. The last two episodes haven't seemed to fit into things as much, but more and more I'm getting a feeling that the Tachikoma's are definitely a part of the story.
