Real Drive is a 'slice of life' anime that is asking the question of "Do we as a culture proceed with the Singularity or not?" married with World Singularity theory via Buddism/Shintoism bs. Basically it's Shirow's (who's made the series) approach to intelligent writing on the subject, without his playing the political/cop angle, and it's effects on culture. Which is why it's generally ignored on 4Chan.
It's pretty superior to all GiTS materials sans the books and first movie. The 'fat' "healthy" girls/androids make me lol!
