    My favorite anime

  • evilkaz

    Cant get over her re-design. Is arise any good?

    • C_Diamond

      I personally like it. Don’t know if it’s true or not, but in episode 2 there was a possible reference to the very first movie(classic).

    • ZEROthefirst

      It’s honestly take it or leave it. In my opinion it’s not as good as the original movies or Stand Alone Complex series and movie, but it is still fairly enjoyable. It still has 3 episodes left too so it might really pick itself up.

    • Shane Guidaboni

      I think her re-design is excellent, especially considering she’s younger here. I thought Arise was okay for a starting point, and like the poster below me has said, it could very well get better since this is episodic.

    • Pdugna

      Don’t mind her redesign I’m just kinda annoyed by all the Windows advertising it has

    • Go2hell66

      Its not bad at all. I really enjoyed the 1st ep

    • Detrimont

      Loved the first episode(and i’ve seen everything else in the series)

    • Crimson_Cloud

      I’m being overly critic, I know, but it doesn’t have soul like previous ones, at least for me. And re-design of her bothers me as well.

    • Sardorim

      Her re-design is why I haven’t bothered with this yet. It just feels offas she doesn’t look like the character that I recognize.

    • Mc-kun

      I don’t mind her re-design but I’m wondering if I should watch this or not. Is it 100% original or relates to the previous series? I enjoyed them a lot because they gave a lot of background about her past.

  • sakusakusakura_nyo

    I felt like the first Ghost in The Shell movie ended right before a big fight was supposed to happen.

    • Detrimont

      are you meaning the actual first film, or the first arise film?

      • sakusakusakura_nyo

        The actual first one, it came out a long time ago. I don’t really want to spoil it for anyone but the ending is very anticlimactic.

        • Detrimont

          well, the manga it was based on ended the same way, the manga has a sequel that continues the story though

  • harmonyworld

    Well…I never liked that her hair became purple, and I’d have much rather have the first movie character design instead, but GITS has always been a good action show/movie that has always been really good.
    I’ve yet to check this out, I’ll will sometime, so here’s hoping that it’s good.

    Glob why is this not on North American PSN yet? Gundam UC does it simultaneous.
