Grind Part, Slayer Part, Garbage to the End: "Appleseed"

Based purely on the animated adaptations, I vastly prefer Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell to his Appleseed. I just think Ghost in the Shell has more depth and more interesting characters and ideas. However, Jon tells me if you go to the original manga, it's Appleseed that's actually a better story. Good enough to inspire this early career favorite.

Ghost in the Shell is clearly for n008z compared to the cultness of Aplleseed :D

i remember watching Appleseed at the height of my anime fervor and didn't understand why the robots had revolvers. Could never look past that.
