I am as much a fan of GitS as the next weabo and I guess many if not most of us were brought into anime through the original series/movies. And we all were more or less speechless about Hollywood’s more than anaemic live action movie (the Scarlett Johansson desaster).
And now, after a much too short time-out the Japanese are trying to revive the old legendary vehicle again. The last approach Ghost in the Shell Arise was already not so great and broke with its own continuency. Ok, we’re used to that sort of flexibility by our Japanese friends. In the end it’s their IP and they may do as they fukn fancy.
… or, in all likelihood, a total fukup!
