ghost in the shell: ARISE Border 1 impressions

ALERT: SPOILERS!!!!! After finally watching border 1 of Ghost in the Shell and having it snuggly tucked in my arms on Blu-Ray, many viewings later I feel comfortable enough with it to REALLY want to talk about it. In the prequel we're greeted with a young Motoko, and a team of people yet to even be ...

Novels. Like books with text instead of pictures. Really there are some already? Must look now! Yeah there are 4 of them. The three Stand Alone Novels which are really well done, and my personal favorite is Ghost in the Shell: Innocence - After the Long Goodbye - a very film-noir stylized novel tha...

Re: Border 1: Ghost Pain

I full heartedly agree on the desire to see more of the team interactions, however as for her parents I feel that the matter was presented as much as possible. To delve into it any further would be to create a past experience, and I think that one of the allures of ghost in the shell is its ability ...

True the fall time was rather exaggerated, but the overall animation segment was really cool. I really enjoyed this short.

Over-the-top, but well composed.

Alright, chapter 2 and 3 were really cool. : ] I loved the art! The story is actually very well done, I love how dynamic everything is. Too many shots I think of the major in glorious poses, but I can't deny she does look pretty awesome. I really love the think tank in the story, and the portrayal o...

I just bought my tickets for the avant premiere next friday....I'm not going to spoil myself 8) Envy is the smallest way to describe how I feel. >_< I really like the animation style. I can't say I'm a fan of the facial portrayal of the characters, reminds me quite a bit of Oshii's faces from Sky C...

I don't find it all that bad. Sexy-motoko is rather unnecessary, but outside of that I feel like the art seemed really cool. It is rather matter-of-fact with its presentation, but I do enjoy the visuals and the artist does great panel work, as well as portraying the flow of movement quite deliberate...

:) High hopes! mm Ditto. Did I see a blu-ray/DVD release date of July in there? YES! That really fired me up. I'm glad it's not going to be a year long affair before I can get my hands on it. :) I'm looking forward to seeing this. For some reason it really does give me an oddly similar vibe to the ...

I feel like 2013 will be an incredible year for the franchise! I'm extremely excited to see how this game goes. Does anyone know if this is the same artist that helped with the PS2 game art? The style of it looks so similar, or at least familiar enough... :O Which is a plus in my book, still by far ...

Yeah I find it interesting that even though the show is dated a couple years ahead when we first meet The Major, she does look a good ten years younger...yet there is nothing to dictate that the age of her prosthesis has to match her actual human age. I wonder if they made her younger to appeal to ...

So quite a few issues later, I'm still stoked to see that the manga's been going on. :) The Tale of the Dead Town was so good! I can't wait to see her adaptation of Mysterious Journey to the North Sea (waaaays away), and Rose Princess. This chick's got her handle on her D material. I'm very happy wi...

DAMN! :D

This promo art is beautiful! Has that same incredible polish that the PS2 GITS art had. : ]


I'm curious when we'll see even any kind of example of the gameplay...

I do however have to say it'll be odd not seeing adult Motoko. I'm curious how old she is going to behave/ sound in the final product. Maaya Sakamoto is cast as the new Motoko...she got her start playing young Motoko (after Batou's body switcheroo) at the end of original Ghost in the Shell film...s...

The one from the 1995 Oshii movie. I think she looks the most relatable.
Second is a tie between Manga kusanagi and ARISE kusanagi. Granted it's tough for me to judge without thinking of her persona as well as her visage.

The original movie Motoko was gold though. Through and through.
