Genre: sci-fi crime action
Log line: An elite cybernetic law enforcement unit investigates and solves cyber-crime and terrorism cases while they sometimes face a question about what identifies human.
Although Mamoru Oshii’s “Ghost in the Shell” (1995) might be famous, I recommend these well-made TV series that were directed by Kenji Kamiyama. The premise is futuristic but believable. The theme is self-identities and crimes in a world in which many people are partly mechanized, otherwise known as cyborg, with human brains that are connected to a network. Sometimes it’s dialogue-heavy.
