Looks like yet another alternate universe.
Well, after the abysmal second movie universe flick, that's probably for the better.

I thought that it was fantastic, although besides GITS 2.0 and some Highlander flick, it is the only other anime film I have been able to stand watching all the way through. Both GITS movies really hit the spot for me as a massive scifi-noir fan.
