Update 01/26/2011: As part of celebration for the production of Ghost in the Shell Arise, a scheduled airing of Ghost in The Shell: Stand Alone Complex will happen on a limited date in Youtube. Check here for more details
I'm not too sure if I'll be happy reading the news as Ghost in the Shell: Arise is set to be released this year. If most have been excited of Gen Urubuchi's Gargantia, I've been more excited when I heard the latest project of the franchise. The only thing that sucks is that they've revamped Major Kusanagi's look. Now, she doesn't look appealing and sexy anymore. I think removing a portion of her hair does more damage than good not only that but the art is completely different! Please get back the classic Motoko Kusanagi! Most if not all like the old Major! Not unless it's just a temporary shell?
Also, the official site is now up and running in bloody red background! Better check it here.
