Ghost in the shell
I watch the arise series and I thought this movie was going to be great and it was better than even I thought it was going to be.
by MICHAEL -
I have always been a huge GitS fan, so I was a little disappointed when they rewrote GitS for the Arise series. I always thought The Major was the sexiest woman in anime, but the characterization of her in Arise missed the mark, as well as most of the other "new" characters. But the new movie improved in this respect to the point where I hope we see more of this story cycle. If you didn't grow up on GitS as I did, I'm certain you'll enjoy all of the Arise series. If you did, and especially if you have all of the original TV series and movies, you'll want to add this to your collection. And I think you will grow to enjoy it as I have.
