From street to street, coast to coast, world to world, there is one cyberpunk franchise most anime fanatics may be familiar with. The Ghost in the Shell is one such franchise that has revolutionized itself and became an epitome of what cyberpunk is. The style, portrayal of its characters, its high tech setting, and story building are just a few characteristics that defines what GITS was. The franchaise itself has inspired an expansion to what’s known as Ghost in the Shell Arise, a four-part saga consisting of an ongoing story involving Motoko "Major" Kusanagi, a mysterious woman involved with Section 9. As an adaptation expansion, read more

It's time to write a review. Ghost in the Shell Arise II: Ghost whispers. This "episode" was extremely stylized to say the least. Everything from extreme camera angles to (tasteful) use of slow motion, this episode was really some great eye candy. More and more I'm liking the new art style, and the animation is more fluid than the water in my cup.

The story, as all GitS stories, is pretty complex. A good understanding of how this universe works is a prerequisite to being able to enjoy this particular story. The story had some strong elements of the puppet master woven in, with issues read more

Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Border:2 Ghost Whispers is very similar to the first Arise episode in presentation. That is to say, it is basically a stand alone GiTS story revolving around the redesigned cast as the quirk. I don't think this Arise episode is as good as the first one, but it was good enough in my opinion.

Ghost Whispers is even more bombastic, colorful, and stylish than the first Arise episode, and much more so than the somewhat similar Stand Alone Complex. This episode is about 90% action scenes, and they are all well choreographed and look excellent with this well budgeted animation read more

Not a huge fan of the first episode, but border 2 picks up the pace. We get to see the coming the together of the SAC unit. For Better or Worse border 2 feels like a classic GITS. "Ghost" and spiritual themes are brought up again but with no elaboration on those themes to add. We get a solid story vague, and a little characterization on each member of the SAC unit. But no complex characters, they are only stactic cut outs meant to serve to the overly dense plot. The plot is nothing the gits series hasn't done before along with its spiritual undertones. read more
