That was a boy in the Tachikoma episode? I coulda sworn it was a girl. But then anime is so androgynous sometimes.

I'm with Saito there. I took a class in college where we studied the works of American playwrights and one of the huge things that came out of it was about the symbolism used by the writer. At the time I thought that was utter bunk. I still think most of it is, but a thought that I had later on rela...

I agree that the library is real. There is even an exchange about the storage of obsolete information between Aramaki and Aoi. Aramaki asks how long he will do it and Aoi replies "As long as they will let me." It was unclear if he was working as a librarian in someone else's library or if ...

The Major.... Hacked.....

I guess it is possible, Aoi did link with her while all of her defenses were down when he saved her fro the assassin, so he might have her ghost key.

If you have a fear of crappy 3D anime then I suggest watching the two recent Appleseed movies. No, those are not 3D .... They may be rendered in 3D inside some computer somewhere, but by the time you see it, they are plain of 2D. 3D is that crappy stuff like "Jaws 3 in 3D" or "Spaceh...

Been lurking a while. This thread made me come out of hiding... No one mentioned the horror yet... "in - 3D" Each of the previous incarnations manga/movie/series changed a little of the characters and the story. But some elements remained the same (exploration of what it means to be human ...
