Went with Cowboy and Ghost in the Shell on this one about Visual Effects but I probably should have Cowboy Bebop with Big O in the categories of Visual Effects and Animation/Art Direction (I talk about that later).

Nine XXVI's Picks: Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex
Peace.

Sure thing, Ace and you heard the man!

Ghost in the Shell gave a visual representation of what the Internet would look like if our bodies could actually travel there themselves. So, I'm dropping it for that. And I was going to go with FMA, but then I remembered how amazing the visual effects of Big O were. So yeah, The Big O as well.
Peace.
