No introductions needed

Fact; Ghost in the Shell is a global phenomenon.

Fact; hackers are awesome.

Fact; Motoko Kusanagi is an outstanding force in the anime world and the futuristic Steampunk genre.

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.

Don’t worry, I’ll wait.

Now, to be fair. There are some instances where titles were not a good description of the content. Granted, this is a tool that is misused constantly. But you have to give respect were respect is due.

My fantasy girlfriend

Let’s talk about someone cool. Let’s talk a bit about my fantasy girlfriend Samus Aran. Yep, I said it. Internet, the cat is out of the box. I have a crush on Samus Aran from the Metroid series. Got a problem with that?!……… I hope not because I love you too 😀
