|(Don't buy this.)|
Bought! I fired it in to the PS3 last night just to confirm that yes, this is a high-def bluray of the original film without any of the offensive new CGI, making it the definitive version of the legendary anime. Praise be.
I love Hellsing Ultimate for very different, less-respectable reasons, and my collection contained the first eight OVAs. When I picked up IX - X, I had no idea it was the conclusion of the story, but last night, after Kayla had turned over, I put on my headphones and turned on the show. This anime actually has a proper end! And damned if it doesn't make me want to watch the whole thing over again.
Now, though, it occurs to me that my otherwise-very-respectable Ghost in the Shell collection is missing some key components. I've got both mangas, the original movie and the TV series, but I'm missing Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence and the new OVA, Arise (Arise 1 and 2 are on Netflix right now, by the way).
Good thing I've been tasked with putting together a Christmas list.
Dear Santa (Kayla, who hates Ghost in the Shell),
Please buy me Ghost in the Shell. I have been a very good boy all year, when I'm not in my sin.
