Re: Ghost in the Shell Arise: 2013

Being serious for a second, I'm cautiously optimistic about this project.

The director Kazuchika Kise has worked on both the original and the Innocence sequel of the Oshii version of GITS, and he worked on Kamiyama's Solid State Society movie, so at least he knows the material.

The writer Tow Ubukata wrote the brilliant Le Chevalier D'Eon, and most recently for Western audiences has been behind the Mardock Scramble movies. They're worth a rent if you want to see his idea of cyberpunk. I've seen the first Mardock Scramble and it's pretty much the best anime cyberpunk since Stand Alone Complex.
