Originally This was supposed to be the first project that both Directors were planning however before the pair started production on This New Ghost in the shell Anime series they were offered ultraman for Netflix so the pair started work on ultraman and now this new take on Ghost in the shell will be released in 2020 See more »
I have loved the entire Ghost in the Shell franchise since the start (manga).
Purchasing not only GitS material but also work from Masamune Shirow.
To say I was excited for this series is an understatement at best.When the trailers appeared I became worried of what they will do considering the CG. Sadly this series is about what you think it will be.
Gun combat appears fine if you get past the CG while any hand to hand scenes are awkward and goofy feeling.
The only plus I give is the spoken audio, they did a wonderful job getting I believe the entire GitS SAC voice cast to return. While the video of them speaking is cringy at best if you close your eye's and listen, great experience.
Overall this series makes me very sad, I was able to give Arise a somewhat of a pass but this. . . this has gone to far. Had this series been animated in the traditional more grungy style it would have been great.
