Anime — Ghost in the Shell : Stand Alone Complex – 2nd Gig

On the second time, I actually managed to get through to the end of the series. Some of that was the same media-related issues as with the previous series, but much was to do with it meandering around for a while before settling down to being a fairly standard action/thriller, the sort of thing you'd expect Bruce Willis to be appearing in.

It has a strange relationship with the manga, since episodes 20-21 re-use the setting of the chapter Phantom Fund, but cutting it jaggedly loose from context -- and yet it ends with the opening scene to the first chapter of the manga (as if to say, that's it, the manga and/or movies come next).

Mostly harmless.
