It is after this movie that i concluded that Ghost in the Shell works better as a movie series.
Great movie, i liked the directing very much, not a coincidence by the GitSC staff.

T - 10
S+C - 7
E - 8

My Rating:8.2/10

Am I the only one who preferred Motoko first appearance?

I also think the master of puppets is the subconscious of Motoko.

Batou more and he knows everything and did nothing because he loves Major ?, it seems that in the end this major begging forgiveness the Batou for its disappearance in the last two years, introspective behavior is basically one in which the person wants to say something but do not have the courage to say, is trying to insinuate something, as well as major insinuates regret for disappear and dechar Batou alone, in addition to not knowing she wHAT was making the network one the things she is asked is wHAT made i the network I was looking for that someone special in ????????????

whom she spoke

Batou! or Kuze will be that she was looking for a chance of him being alive on the network


or will be that this was a declaration of love for Batou, the major finally understood that her destiny is to be in Batou arms or live alone having sex with kurutan ?.

I am mystified batou Hummmmmm hummmmmmmm hummmmmmmm this and a code name to say I'm in (sex fuck) Major.
(And of course the end of the film was the second night of love (sex) with Batou is clear and evident.)

Batou is even, the major manipulated handles it with this feeling when in fact she really likes the Kuze, but has no pair courage to declare to the Kuze for fear, the more Kuze already died, free way to Batou.

Batou fucking grabs soon she and ready old

Overall already realized that the major did not know what he wants from life, she seems very crazy and complex, sometimes with Batou , sometimes with Kuze, sometimes alone ,sometimes with session 9.

Major woman more WORLD error.

You are so right. For me it seems like she thinks that she is not a real human and does not need or deserve human enjoyment or hapiness

I am really hopying for Motoko to find her happiness

And also hope for a sequel anime or movie to get to know how it will continue
There is Arise but this tells the story before SSS and Stand Alone Complex

At least I am excited for the movie adaption with Scarlet Johansson!!!

Well its all over now. Its good to have some closure on the SAC universe. I've said this a million times and I'll say it again, it's a real shame that they haven't done anything new with SAC. I personally enjoyed Arise but it was a short tease. After going through two entire seasons of SAC, it's hard to not love it.

At first when Aramaki reveals that the Major left it came as a big surprise. Naturally when he mentioned that it was two years, you would think that SSS picked off right after 2ND GIG but I have a feeling there was something that went down between the end of 2ND GIG and the time the Major left. Just imagine the Major deciding to just leave Section 9 after all they've been through. I'm sure the group made a big commotion, especially Batou.

Right from the start we can see the change in characters of the members or Section 9; specifically Batou and Togusa. Togusa, being the head man now, seems to be trying to preform his duty to the best of his ability which can give him a more demanding demeanor. Filling the shoes of the Major is no easy task and Togusa knew this. Its a very weird predicament for Batou. Its obvious that Batou considers the Major to be his partner and someone he could depend on. Her leaving, I think, totally messed Batou up. On top of that with Togusa being the head of command, things at Section 9 were totally flipped around.

As the movie progressed, there was a side of the Major that we never saw before. She completely went rogue. From what I understand, she was tired of her job at Section 9. I think she said something a long the lines of not wanting to be confined. Obviously Section 9 has to follow government jurisdiction so that would restrict the Major from doing what she wanted.

Her hideout is truly remarkable. Back in season 1 of SAC, I was really confused about the part where the Major gets "killed" by the sniper unit. Turns out she had a spare body and the little version of her was another extension. I didn't think it would be this complex though. The Major literally had a wall lined up with other prosthetic bodies...

When it's all said and done, the real question is who exactly is the Puppeteer? Before Koshiki shot himself I couldn't help but notice his look. The same hair color and design as the Major's? Similar eyes as well? Surely there has to be some connection here...

During the exchange between Koshiki and the Major, we see the faces of the people she had known during the SAC timeline. A brief pause on Kuze may mean something but that isn't certain. What is confusing is the scene where Koshiki's body (or second body) walks out of the Major's hideout. Could this mean the Major is connected to the Puppeteer in some way? A lot of people speculate that the Puppeteer stems from the Major's conscious but how could that work? The line: "How many arrogant, self-righteous asses do you know?" brings up some questions. Could he mean the Major? Ultimately, that part makes me very confused.

Now finally the end... What can I say? A happy ending to say the least and somewhat of a huge tease. Judging from the conversation between the Major and Batou is seems like she might join up with Section 9 again. It was apparent that the events that happened in 2ND GIG really shook the Major up. Some examples included: her messing up on a key point in the mission to find Kuze - she went to the wrong location and got one of the new members killed, her finding out that Kuze was the boy that she shared that hospital room with, when she accepted that she was going to die from the nuke and was prepared to upload herself to the Net, and finally Kuze's death. All of these events really made the Major re-evaluate herself. Remember, this was a totally different version of the Major in season one.

I could see why she would want to escape her life at Section 9. After being introduced to vast size of the net thanks to Aoi and Kuze, I could see why she would want to go explore it. Still, she still had her good side of her since she was solving crimes. I feel like this opens up a lot about the Major that Solid State dived into. I still want to find out more though.

Overall, I think this was a very good addition to the SAC universe. I would consider this a closer because of how long ago this came out (can you believe it's been 10 years?!). I still would like to see some more or have something be made about SAC. There has literally been nothing wrong with the SAC and I feel like anything they do with it in terms of anime will be a hit.

This was sort of a long post. I was just rambling off my thoughts since there was so much going on here. Helps me get my ideas together I guess.

Also, its nice to see them use some of the 1995 GITS scenes in Solid State. I couldn't help but notice the similarities while I was watching it. A nice touch nonetheless.

Always the best except the real puppeteer was not found. Major kusanagi's reason for departure was stupid but i am glad she came back in the end.

She felt restricted and contained while working for Section 9, yet she also felt as though she couldn't do much without those restrictions either. That scene alone made the movie for me. At first, I was thinking this movie would show-off "Badass Rogue Major" doing rogue things, but this was not the case, and in fact carried some development/ties from the SAC series to further deepen her character. Major is human; a lonely wanderer looking for something... that's what many of what we do, searching. For that display of her character, I did find this movie to be a sufficient continuation from SAC.

Just this once, I'll fulfill whatever your wish is.

Best of the 3 but I still find it hard to get very excited about SAC storylines.

No they didn't find the puppeteer but they heavily implied it was Kusanagi's subconscious.

tfw no-one's commented since you did

This actually works as a sort-of sequel to Innocence if you're not into the whole SAC thing, mainly due to Motoko's place in things.

So a store had this movie, the original remaster and 2.0 on sale and I was tempted, but I just don't know what this version is. I already have an older anniversary special edition and 2.0 is supposed to be the same, but for the graphics freaks. However with this I'm not sure if it is the same as the original or a remake or whatever, because they all say that the main villain is the puppet master...

This shows dialogue is one of the best and most realistic I have ever seen, I wish there was more to this series and I teared up when Togusa shot himself I really thought he was done for.
