Absolutely love it . Holds true to the original character types and styles wile giving us a whole new story to watch unfold, I love it
I grew up watching SAC and Second Gig. Then even went back to watch the original movie and the newly released movies and I have to say all of them were amazing but this blows those out of the water. The fluid animation, the voice acting and the plot, my gosh the plot!! Its so thought out. I have always been a fan GITS but never did i question how they all got together. We see a full history of Queen Kong as she's just hitting her prime and see how Batou and Tohgusa come into play with the Major. Its just too perfect. Definitely a need to buy even if you're new to the series!
An excellent beginning
This episode is an excellent beginning for the Arise 4-parter. There is room for improvement -- particularly in the musical score -- but I 5-stars anyway.
The story and the animation are good. They have laid a foundation such that the story could go anywhere. Hopefully it will be as great as the 2nd Gig story line.
Aramaki's visual characterization could use an upgrade but that is a minor issue for me. That said, I really miss Yoko Kano's esthetic sense on the sound track. For me she was not a minor contributor. Her sound scape was as important as any of the main characters. Hopefully, in the upcoming episodes, the music will contribute more to establishing a GITS atmosphere than it did in this first segment.
I will buy every section anyway -- but I hope they improve in this regard
