Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex

I’ve seen Volumes 1 and 2 now, and it’s looking like it’s going to be a really good anime series. It’s rather difficult to compare it to the quintessential Cowboy Bebop series since I haven’t got to the ending yet (and Bebop went from great to awesome after seeing its memorable ending), but the episodes so far seem to set up a very, very promising storyline indeed.

Aside from that, the theme song (“Inner Universe”) by Yoko Kanno just absolutely rips. Her soundtrack for Cowboy Bebop showed that she’s a genius, and her consistent, continued awesomeness in the soundtrack for Standalone Complex shows she’s a true prodigy. Arguably one of the best musicians of this entire century, in my totally overrated opinion.
