Ghost Tears opens with Motoko making passionate love to her then-lover, Akira, later even featuring the two attending another couple’s wedding with Motoko wearing a rather promiscuous, alluring dress. Her colleagues, especially Batou, make fun of how fatuous and short-lasting this relationship is. How does Motoko respond? She hacks Batou’s prosthetic arms, again reminding him of how humiliating it is to be punched by your own fists.

Being the third installment to the Ghost in the Shell Arise series, Ghost Tears is quite the bombshell. A sexy and assertive Motoko leads an investigation into a terrorist organization whose symbol is the Scylla, an ancient sea-monster. read more

TRIVIA: The third episode of Arise is subtitled "Ghost Tears" because the franchise is presently balled in a corner weeping from the garbage juice squirted into its eyes.

Preface: I usually don't bother to write reviews unless I find myself auto-forming a review in my head as I watch. This occurred during the third episode of Arise because the flaws are so glaring they jump out at you neatly wrapped; it almost feels like this review has been written for me and I'm merely transcribing. Easy as transcribing is I still wouldn't post, unless what I saw which seemed so obviously godawful to me had yet read more

So another GITS is here. This time we learn something new about Major's past and also about the legendary Section 9.

I think this Arise series is getting better and better with every episode. I really enjoyed this one and I think it was the best on of Arise so far. I loved the thoughts about the cyberbodies, are they real bodies or just a things?

This film contains again all the GITS stuff like hacking into other people's minds, problems with some body parts, super cool Motoko Kusanagi and of course all the other characters, logicomas etc.

We can see again cyborgs and humans side by read more

Arise has been a little bit up and down so far, and the series has yet to get into the same league as the films and SAC, but the latest Arise episode succeeds at being its own thing while bringing in classic element from both previous iterations. Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Border:3 Ghost Tears is the first Arise episode to show what the other ones lacked, Section 9 back in action, and this certainly works in favor of this new episode. This is what you should expect from this movie: a SAC style plot with the most intricate storyline so far in Arise, read more
