Is this worth seeing or should I rewatch SAC instead ?

Not sure about the design, and I really can't get over the fact they replaced the whole cast.

Heard it retcons her origins too.
>>
>>133938911
Take it as another alternate universe, just like the Oshii movies, SAC, and the Manga each are
>>
How's the newest movie?

Not a retcon since it's a new continuity.

I think it's worth watching even if it isn't as good.
>>
>>133939022

Movie was quite good, better than the OVA's.
>>
>>133938911

Don't expect any level of deep like with the film or SAC series, it's more action based.

It's a new continuity. Go Border 1-4 OVA's, then Episode 9 & 10 of Arise AA (Border 5) then the movie. Commie has it all subbed, CBM has The New Movie.
>>
>>133939022
Better than the OVA's.
That doesn't say much,, but it's ok. Not the mess that Arise was, but not old Gits standard either.
Also, music is really shit. During some action scenes I just thought: Make this awful music stop.
>>
>>133939702
That's a bummer. GITS usually has really cool score, no matter what.
Guess this one really is a departure on every account.
>>
>>133938911
It hits all the notes.
>motoko melee so hard she disables her arm
>motoko engages romantically with a villain

>old dude files the paperwork
>theme is some dumb novel

The whole cast is there. I think it has the better characterization of Paz.
>>
Was Motoko getting a prosthetic body at birth always a thing or did Arise retcon that ?
>>
>>133940398
She's always been a native full prosthetic.
>>
>>133940398
According to SAC 2nd GIG ep.11, she got the prosthetic body to save her life after barely surviving a plane crash that also killed her parents.

I don't think so.
Remember that hospital episode in SAC, the one that served as background story for Kuze's childhood ?
Motoko was in a plane accident and went prosthetic only then, she was already a child.

She clearly has no memory of ever being anything but full prosthetic. Her brain wasn't fully developed before becoming full prosthetic.

I don't think Arise retcons her origin; the change is merely one of degree. The point is not to change Motoko but to us from that horrible ham-fisted star-crossed lovers plot.

What was wrong with that storyline though?

I have no idea what you are trying to say.
>>
>>133941242
It was the weakest of the threads running through the second season. It did nothing to shape Motoko; at best it filled out Kuze a bit. There's no reason to tie the whole damn franchise down with it.

>Kuze and Motoko, destined to almost but not kiss since their ascension to full prosthetic

>There's no reason to tie the whole damn franchise down with it.
It didn't even tie SAC down with it since Major's origins are never god damn discussed.

In fact, that's partly why the series works. Cops don't god damn need origin stories.
>>
>ARISE
needs more ORIG

The girl in the story is Motoko.

>The girl in the story is Motoko.
Yes, yes she was.

Now what impact did it being Motoko have on the story?

I'll wait I won't actually wait.

Yes, yes he was, that was the point and it greatly impacted the story.

What does that have to do with the girl being Motoko impacting the story?

Their shared history necessarily affects their present relationship.

>Their shared history necessarily affects their present relationship.
But not to any large extent, both of them fulfilled their roles without regards for their shared history.

Fuck I don't even think they ever actually confirmed their suspicions.

>>133940854
Probably, it's just a BD rip w/ R1 subs.

It was underwhelming! It was so underwhelming that it undercut the emotional investment proscribed by the storyline. That makes it a bad storyline.
>>
>>133942638
>implying the Major doesn't sympathize with who she's investigating in like every iteration of Ghost in the Shell regardless of whether or not there is a personal connection
Nigga do you even Puppet Master?

>It was underwhelming! It was so underwhelming that it undercut the emotional investment proscribed by the storyline. That makes it a bad storyline.
It was exactly as subtle as it needed to be given the series.

Had it had more of an impact it would have been a bunch of pointless forced drama. Had it had less of an impact there probably would have been an asspull about one of the kids actually not being one of the adults.

Shit like this is why Saito folded.

You can't deny this was a bit underwhelming
>>
>>133942728
This is my point.

It was ham-fisted because they had to warp reality in order to set up the storyline.
Then the relationship between Motoko and Kuze was established when we know there's no need for it, because she always wins by absorbing her opponent.
And there was no payoff because Kuze is literally emotionless.

Contrast with the romance plot in Arise. That story mattered.
>>
>>133943038
It only would have been hamfisted had it been heavily relevant to the plot.

As is it was simply poetic trimmings to the season.
>>
>>133943132
This >>133940982 is where we started. I'm glad we can agree.
