I've been meaning to re-watch two anime series:


  • Gankutsuou: This series is a re-telling of The Count of Monte Cristo that focuses strongly on Morcerf's son, Albert and a friend of his, Franz. The series has the most interesting art style I've seen in an animé. It uses a technique of moving cut-outs over static, patterned backgrounds to create illusions of flowing robes and wavy hair and portray the Count's rich, lush life. Also, the series starts in outer space, and there are mecha.

  • Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (1st Gig): This series is inspired by Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell manga, but the main plot is unrelated. It is a fairly intellectual series that focuses on both the meaning of consciousness and the connections between conscious beings. The technology in the series is also very neat.

I have all the disks for both series. I'd prefer to watch in SC, but could come to Mountain View if enough people were interested.

ETA: I meant prefer to watch in SC OR Mountain View, and could go elsewhere in the Bay Area if people were interested. That's what I get for posting early in the morning.

Oooh, both of those sound very interesting. I would come down to MV for that, or else I'd love to borrow the disks (after I have my projector etc. set up).

Either sounds good :-) Our projector in MV is not the best set up, but it's serviceable.

I'd be interested in both if you end up watching them in SC.
