Synopsis:

In the year 2024, Ernest Serano was kidnapped and ransomed; the event was known as the Laughing Man incident due to the involvement of a world-class hacker of the same name. Six years later, the police force Section 9 finds itself in the midst of a terrorist plot and conspiracy unlike anything they've ever known. The Laughing Man - with the ability to hack into even the eyes of those around him - has returned, and his motives are unclear. The Major, Batou, and the rest of Section 9 must race against the clock to determine the reason for the Laughing Man's re-emergence and unravel the twisted conspiracy of major corporations around them...

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.

I feel that if you liked eather The laughing Man or Lelouch you will like the other. The laughing man is some one who is in the background but changing big picture things, and lelouch is more in your face. but for the most part they are bolth heroes fighting to fee the world with amazing skillz. The laughing man is trying to free the world through information and freeing people from ignorance. lalouch dose the same thing in away, but uses ignorance to gain strength.

Eden of the East

Eden of the East

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.
