I've read the first Volume of Gunmm when my cousin bought it from the store and had it at my house when he was staying over for a couple of says. The art is really wonderful. I forgot all about it up until now!

Gunnm was my very first manga! Before I knew anything about anime or manga, a friend gave me a random volume in the series she found at a used book store. She said it reminded her of my artwork. I soon collected the rest of the series. It's still the only manga on my bookshelf. Highly recommended! (Read it before James Cameron mangles it!)

Yup, Ghost in the Shell is fully scanlated. GUNM, AI Ren, and Saikano too.
