Ghost in the Shell: ARISE review
Watching how The Major recruits Batou, Togusa, Ishikawa, Saito, Paz to form section 9 is such a treat, Production IG did an amazing job with this new addition to the GitS saga. The political intrigue, cyber terrorism, amazing mecha that are a staple of this series is all present and the visuals are just as stunning as ever.
Those who are fans of GitS SAC & 2nd Gig might find the Majors appearance off-putting at first but fans need to realize this is the youngest version of Matoko Kusangi we've ever seen and actually resembles her look in the original feature film more. I thought it was a nice touch to have the new voice of the Major be someone who actually voiced a young Major Kusangi in GitS SAC.
