City Landscapes Through Manga
The story of "Ghost in the shell", a Japanese animation, happens in Hong Kong. As a veteran Hong Kong citizen, I am very intrigued by the scenes depicted in the movie. Most of the shots accurately show the city landscapes as they are. Some shots are very imaginative and creative, for example, a canal with touring boats and sampans in the city center, an old building with glass claddings. These shots are very stimulating as they give us an opportunity to rethink our city again.
