    You could call this a real cyberpunk anime. A pretty abstract and philosophical story about identity and who we really are. It leaves the viewer questioning about more than just the series itself. Juicy detail: It is rumoured to be one of the series that had an influence on The Wachowski brothers for The Matrix story. However I don't know if this is ever confirmed or true, and it probably was a minor one compared to Ghost In The Shell. After all it was aired only 1 year before the release of The first Matrix movie. It is not for everyone, but if you have an open mind and like more gloomy and philosophical stories, it is definitaly worth it.


    this anime doesn't make any sense at all, i can't understand whats happening

    About Me

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

    But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

    I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

    I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

    Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
