GHOST IN THE SHELL REVIEWED
“Ghost in the Shell” reads in a way that blasts past the Wiki generation and into long-form historical expedition. While not everyone wants to learn about anime history through the 1980s-1990s, this is a slice of history. It’s a look at when Eastern animation took over the West and what had to work to make it happen. I appreciate the endeavor, but I still feel like this could’ve been paired with another book to make for a larger affair. Coming from an academic setting, I own several short-form books on important subjects. I love them and I still carry them around years after the fact.
It’s just that there was so much hanging in the wind that I wanted to learn more. Oh well, I can want all I want. I still enjoyed the book.
