Recently, a number of terrorist attacks have plagued the city: an attack on the Chinese embassy, a bombing, a shooting of a famous cyber rapper and the murder of a bank president to name a few. Each crime is claimed by a different terrorist group, each calling itself the Individual Eleven. Section 9 is on the case, and they have one suspect in mind: Hideo Kuze, a man who attempted to assassinate the Prime Minister. With time running out, Section 9 will do whatever it takes to discover the identity of Individual Eleven and the truth behind these connected events before more innocent lives are taken...
In the year 2010, on a day called ‘Careless Monday', ten missiles hit the cities of Japan; miraculously, there are no casualties and the event quickly fades from public memory. Some time later, Saki Morimi decides to visit Washington, DC on her graduation trip to America, but that day begins a series of bizarre events. After getting into trouble with the police, she's rescued by a young man who is completely naked save for a gun in one hand and an even stranger item in the other - a phone credited with 8 billion electronic yen and a female voice on the other end called Juiz who will fulfill his every wish. Having no recollection of his past and calling himself ‘Akira Takizawa', the young man accompanies Saki back to Japan in the hopes of discovering who he is. Akira's enigma quickly proves fascinating and Saki decides to help him rather than reunite with her family; but what neither realizes is that Akira is embroiled in a dark game of life and death linked to the Careless Monday missiles. Has Saki just made a terrible mistake, and can Akira unravel his own mystery before they both lose everything?
First off any one who loved eather series based off of the deep underlying social and political issues will love the other. bolth series deal with political,social,and worldly issues.GIT has more of a futuristic feel to it, but the computer and net theme are also in eden. i believe that Akira's charicter is very similar to that of The Laughing Man.
Also if you loved how beautiful the animation was in one of these series you will surely like the other. bolth shows had very good levels of detail to everything.Though i like the charicter desighns better in GITS.
