Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex: Tachikomic Days
I forgot how much I love this episode. The girl’s story almost made me cry. How can you not adore an armed military AI tank that goes gallivanting around the city with a little girl while learning about what it mean to be alive? The first time I saw this one I seriously thought it was accidentally going to shoot off a missile at something when she put her dog’s leash on the safety pin. And then it let her ride in the carrying compartment! I know it’s not a big deal but it’s meant to carry the most elite soldiers during missions and it’s carrying a little girl! I also loved how the Major was tailing them the whole time and she was more concerned about it becoming self aware than about it running around with a civilian. I almost died when it told off the cops in Aramaki’s voice.
