What is it that makes us "human" and distinguishes us from machines that, quite convincingly, appear to look and act like us?

We continue to explore this question in GiTS 2015, which begins with a nostalgic flashback scene of Major Kusanagi's childhood, when she began her relationship with Kurts under the falling cherry blossom petals...

AND THEN, we are thrown into the excitement, continuing the unsatisfying ending of GiTS: Arise as the Fire Starter Virus and Ghost Hacking are coupled with a horrendous assassination of the Prime Minister and Kurts, the "greatest event since the War".

First of all, everything you say about one installment of the Arise-Series, automatically applies to all the other installments, cause all of them follow the same lame ass blueprint. So that being said, there is no need to differ between the 5 entries (and the movie).

Just like any other Tow Ubukata Screenplay, we have randomly thrown together scenes, that don't make sense on their own, yet alone any sense withe the original manga. One random occasion after another, ...
