Ratings & Reviews
WHY would anyone buy this release?!?!? For the audio AND extras!
Be aware that GiTS 2.0 is NOT the sequel to the original GiTS! The true sequel is GiTS 2: Innocence.
GiTS 2.0 is the RE-EDITED version of the original film.
I'd only get this BD if you really want the extras on this BD.
It has BOTH the original theatrical version of GiTS and the GiTS 2.0 remix which is the "special edition" of the original GiTS -- ie, they re-edited the film, added in new sequences, cut old sequences, and re-recorded the audio in 5.1/6.1 audio with BOTH the Japanese AND North American film casts!
If you want the best BD presentation of the original theatrical cut of GiTS, get the 25th anniversary BD or steelbooks... GiTS 2.0 video and audio quality is fine BUT the encode of the original GiTS on this particular is basically an upscale of the DVD release and is NOT representative of quality HD mastering...
This release is recommended for completists and people interested in what was changed in GiTS 2.0...
