    and after watching the first episode i feel as if i missed something?

    is there something that was supposed to be watched before the tv series or is this just the way it is?

    No, it starts out like that.

    Most of the show are just stand alone complex.

    The movies are just the complex ep's mushed into one, so do not watch the movie its just like a recap.

    Wrong, the movies (OVA) is taken directly from Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex story arc of the same name. It is mostly a retelling of the TV series

    thanks,


    i knew that the laughing man & individual eleven were just recaps, i didn't know if these was something that came pre-tv show.

    Nah, the movies came after the show aired about 2 years after.

    which is why they're recaps.
