This is one that I think does not need an introduction. Ghost in the Shell is by far one of the most influential works of art in the anime scene, manga and just storytelling as a whole. You can just look online the number of creations that it inspired and stand at awe. This does not come as surprise. The sheer complexity and intricacies of every iteration of the series is a testament of the work that was put on it.
