I want my own cute, bubbly, artificially intelligent heavily armed and armored death machine. They're so cute! I mean, sure, everyone wants their own Major Kusanagi, but she's a handful. I just want a mini-tank with the personality of a Japanese schoolgirl on crystal meth and nitrous oxide. :-) As donnerjack
put it: "They're cute, happy, bubbly armor plated death machines." (Not that I'd turn down a Kusanagi, mind you - though I was always partial to Deunan Knute.)
But in any case I must
get the soundtrack. GitS: Standalone Complex has fantastic music - I really want to hear the full version of Lithium Flower (the end credit theme), and Inner Universe (the opening theme) gets stuck in my head readily. But what should I expect, it is another Yoko Kanno soundtrack. That tiny woman has freaky big talent... Apparently Inner Universe is partly in Russian. Ooh, they have the opening credits online... http://www.ghostintheshell.tv/multimedia.php
I sense a CDJapan order coming on. Wait... there are special edition releases in the US, with soundtrack CDs! Tally-Ho!
And yes, I'm going to bed. I left the office a bit after 03:00 and I hadn't fed in over 12 hours, so that was my first imperative. Now sated, I shall sleep - for a few hours anyway.
