Ratings & Reviews
story will be added as another classic in GitS universe
by Tathlyn -
This series continues to show the high level of effort and quality put into storytelling which we expect from the Ghost in the Shell universe by focusing on the characters. Each OVA takes place a few months apart from each other, and gives a more realistic perspective of change in people concurring over time instead of a very short period. The team assembled by Major Mototko Kusanagi hasn't yet officially joined the police Section 9 but events in these OVA's that being official would benefit them more than as independent contractors.
At this point in their lives they are more rough around the edges and in the Major's case she's still a bit on the naive side when it comes to the civilian world. But in each case, the personalities of each of the team members are clearly recognizable of who they will become in the future which was the original movie and series and beginning to explore what it means to be human.
More GITS, more action!
by Otaku John
This is the second set in the OVA "ARISE" series of GITS. As a die-hard GITS fan, I prefer the original series, but this prequel stands on its own as well. Great animation, & an intriguing storyline keeps the action high-paced. A must for any GITS fan!
