    That'll be Solid State Society.

    Edit: I wasn't even aware of Avalon at all and never considered it part of the GitS sequence either, of course.

    A late entry in the Cowboy Bebop hat throwing competition. I do think Bebop is so highly rated partly because for many people it was their first introduction to the wonderful world of anime. It has...

    I've been reading two comics with an environmental slant recently, Great Pacific and The Massive. It's an interesting comparison.

    Great Pacific is about a young oil heir who plots a coup to move...
