The Ghost in the Shell, noted

Making Of A Cyborg p1

What makes a human being “human”? Does intelligence of an organic nature have greater value than that of synthetic origin? Is a machine capable of emotions such as love and hate? What exactly is the “soul”?

These questions have been raised in science fiction works such as Ridley Scott’s 1982 science fiction classic, Blade Runner, and William Gibson’s cyberpunk trilogy, Sprawl, but nowhere have these themes been better explored than in Shirow Masamune’s comics masterpiece, The Ghost in the Shell.
– Mike Richardson, President of Dark Horse Comics, 2009

    Oooh Blade Runner was so good. Actually, I took a college freshmen seminar on this topic. We watched a bunch of anime and discussed about the Japanese fascination with machines, robots, androids, etc. The question of what makes a human came up. It was a really fun class.
