I’m not an anime fan, but one film called Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, came to my attention:
[Director Mamoru] Oshii also explores what Richard Dawkins calls the extended phenotype, structures that are genetically encoded, but external to the body. The beaver’s dam and the spider’s web are natural illustrations of this, and, in the film, memory itself has become externalised in this manner.
And judging by the picture, The Selfish Gene also comes into play.
I need to start watching this stuff…
