Neither thumbs up nor thumbs down for Ghost in the Shell by Shirow Masamune. Manga.
I didn’t know there was any manga that had footnotes, though in retrospect I shouldn’t have been surprised. My boyfriend said you have to read this a couple of times to really understand all of it. I don’t feel like I want to put that much work into it. The “episodes” I did understand, I found reasonably enjoyable; the rest I accept I’m not smart enough for. Though if the “author’s notes” at the end are representative of what happens to your brain if you are that smart – then maybe I don’t want to be.
“Pg. 152 The gun has a catch, about two centimeters above the ejection port, that throws the cartridges forward, but for right-side ejection, it ought to be possible to design a little catch, nowhere near as big as a kicker, that would scatter them downward. (What? You don’t think that’s a good idea?)”
