"Mada Ugoku (まだうごく)" by Maaya Sakamoto x Cornelius

I'm not exactly sure who this new Ghost in the Shell movie is made for. Despite it being the 25th anniversary movie, it's very clearly part of the same continuity of the Arise franchise and works as a conclusion to it's long running storyline. At the same time, however, it's attempting to be a stand alone film that it's own intriguing mystery.

The result is a somewhat muddled, but overall generally entertaining installment in the franchise. While it sadly ditches the more philosophical undertones in the original films and the more political aspects of Stand Alone Complex for a more action driven approach, it still maintains ...

Lacking much of the philosophical aspects the series had traditionally had. Very much just an action flick, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Just that, I expect more from the GitS series. Even the "Arise" series -- which is probably the weakest of all GitS -- had some of the philosophical and meta things that really makes the series interesting.

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).

So, here we have another true Tow Ubukata Screenplay. You can recognize that garbage only 2 minutes in, cause NOTHING makes any sense or is well sceneraized. 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, ...

Ghost in the Shell may not have the biggest following, but it's still been popular enough to warrant six movies and three series. That's quite a bit of material. And quite a few different opening animation and themes.
