I want to say Ghost in the Shell but I just haven't watched enough of it yet.
The movie was amazing, but the series... nah. It's good, but after the first movie everything else falls short.
Just finished watching Samurai Champloo. I loved Mugen (doesn't everyone?) but the ending was disappointing to be honest. Seemed like things got way too bad only to make a complete turnaround and give everyone a happy ending. The soundtrack was definitely the best thing the show had going for it.
I appreciate the happy ending, but the turn from good to bad is a bit unrealistic. In Jin's case it seems plausible, a real sacrifice; he overcomes the odds by doing the unexpected, but as for Mugen it went a bit overboard. Would've been just as good without the explosion, but either way, I like the parting at the crossroads. It gives free reign to the imagination... the adventure's aren't over yet! Kinda hoping for a sequel, but it's not like that'll ever happen.
