nice, should be a nice breath of fresh air for the series. I feel like people aren't open to change and aren't giving it a chance.

Looks very nice, with promising action. Was hoping for another TV series, but I guess 50 minute episodes are okay.

Mixed feelings, I suppose. Don't disappoint!

Hopefully this inspires Kamiyama to do a "3rd GIG".

Fans in Japan react quite badly with the wholesale change of all VAs. They are not enthusiastic about a OVA model for the anime distribution. Combined with the ambivalent reactions about the new character design, the prognosis for the new series does not look so bright (for now at least).
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

In a way, that could end up being a good thing - low expectations mean that they will be easy to exceed. If everyone thought it was going to be perfect, than anything less than perfection would have been smashed. They still have to actually crank out a good product for this to work, though.

As a hardcore fan of GitS I was very excited when I read the first news. Now after seeing the 2 videos posted in here, my expectations became very very high, but the only 2 things I didn't like at all are that the 1st film will be 50 mins. long and that none of the original VAs will be returning. I just hope that if in the end a 3rd GIG gets green light I just hope all the VAs return as for Kanno and Kamiyama.

In the end this looks pretty solid, despite what I mentioned above, animation and art looks astonishing. Probably this will be better than most of the animes that are been made nowadays and the ones to come. Very excited, looking forward to it.

Now we're talking the sme language! hells yeah.
The Art of Shipping is no mere game. It can be small skirmishes to huge nation size wars.
Of course some will claim their ship is the BATTLESHIP but they all do. This is why battles occur because of factions fighting each other to justify their favourite ship.
And thus SHIP to SHIP combat occurs almost anytime even now.
Beware, Threading into the Shipping battlefield will be bloody.... What are you waiting for?

They might be testing the waters with OVAs. If people like them they might make a series following the OVAs.

I would prefer a TV series...

And I hope these OVA won't have the same gap releases as the Code Geass ones.

I a HUGE GITS fan too and it aint looking bad at all for me, despite all changes.

Regarding the change of seiyuu, while I would have preferred the old cast as anyone else, japanese seiyuus are the best, I doubt the new ones will disappoint and will do and excellent work.

Animation looks top notch, so no worries there, new character designs not bad at all, some characters different but nothing bad at all, they are younger so you can expect some characters to look different.

I am not expecting GITS:SAC level but I think this can be decent to very good.

Looks like this one is going to be even worse than that TV series.

Disappointing trailer btw. Cheap "cel-shaded" CGI is just cheap. Nice job with your usual crap Production IG.

Character design is average to decent I guess. No where the same level as the epic 1995 movie.

It's hard to take someone who scored DBZ movies 9 seriously. Btw, "nowhere" is spelled as one word.

Nice.

SAC was excellent.
Did you ever see that Code Geass spin-off about Nunnally?

Neither did she.

Although I was baiting somewhat, I wasn't joking, haha. For a renowned action show I was shocked by how bland and boring the visuals were. But ultimately what made me drop it were the laughable moments of reflection at the end of each episode. "Wait... what if the killer just wanted to be loved??" *camera pans cityscape* "YEAHHHHHH!" They were like something straight out of a bad cop show.

You may want to check out the condensed version that involves the main plot alone:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/2449/Ghost_in_the_Shell:_Stand_Alone_Complex_-_The_Laughing_Man

Many people get bored with the individual episodes (some of which are genuinely bad) and never even reach the complex ones. You can do the same for season two (http://myanimelist.net/anime/2448/Ghost_in_the_Shell:_Stand_Alone_Complex_2nd_GIG_-_Individual_Eleven), although the individual episodes there are of much better quality.

Don't waste your time, he scored the GITS 6 so he is clearly not interested in the GITS franchise. It's probably too ridicilous/absurd for him.

Thanks, I think I'll try that actually. I was under the impression the entire show was episodic.

Thanks for the insight, detective. You almost didn't neglect the fact that 6 is above average on my list, lol.

An unintentional joke then...

You could have at least given it until the Laughing Man story started. I can't guarantee you'll like it though, but it's definitely the best part of the first season. But, then again, I liked most of the stand alone episodes, so it's obvious we don't really see eye to eye regarding this series or I guess the franchise as a whole.

Is your list saying that you dropped SAC after two episodes accurate? I'd assume you saw more if the "end of episode reflection" stuff bothered you, as presumably it would only bother if it happened a lot.

My opinion is similar to hentai_proxy's. The first season is very good, but the Laughing Man episodes are the real meat of it. The "Individual" episodes, as they're aptly called, are hit and miss. I did like most of them but Laughing Man is where it's at.

2nd GIG was more consistent in quality from episode to episode. If you do try the Laughing Man summary version (which I haven't seen, so I can't speak to how well it covers the material) and end up liking it, then I'd strongly recommend trying 2nd GIG in its entirety before going straight to the the highlights version.

Yeah, it's accurate. Two episodes was enough to bother me, lol. Sometimes I try to give well-received shows a "fair chance", but I just wasn't enjoying it enough to do that. Interesting to see that the Laughing Man arc starts only two episodes later.

But anywho, I'm going to give the Laughing Man summary version a try and go from there.

The anime staff has kindly provided with help for those who may prefer longer arc to standalone stories (or vice versa)

You can look at the title of the episodes and tell if it is a standalone episode or part of a longer arc. The first 3 episodes have title started with "SA", meaning they are standalone episode. The next 3 episodes (ep.4-6) have title started with "C", meaning they are "complex episodes" where the episodes are linked. They even have the screen colored differently when the title is shown. SC has green color while C has blue.

Ep.3 is where the Laughing Man arc starts.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

I don't really see myself watching this. Psycho-Pass is without a doubt the spiritual successor to GiTS these days, and I'm pretty content with that. There's just too much history with the character design and voice actors for me. Anyone besides Atsuko Tanaka as the main voice of the Major is just too disjointing even if it's Sakamoto. I'd prefer not to go into things with a bias so I'm going to keep my distance.

If there is a spiritual successor to GITS today that would be Mardock Scramble not Psycho-Pass.

I don't recall ever seeing GitS:SAC being referred to as a renowned action show. Sounds like you watched it for the wrong reasons, expecting something entirely diferent. Perhaps you should stick to shows like Naruto, they seem to be more at your depth.

I'm going to sound terrible, but I enjoyed the dub for SAC more than the original audio, but with Bandai gone, who's going to license/dub this?

looking forward to it, a bit surprised and disappointed with the restructured look of Motoko, if I recall, there was an entire episode in the anime series depicted during her time in the military too, and she didn't look anything like the new look in that one :P

Erggghh.. That's the sound that's going through my head.
I don't know if it's the sound of disappointment, confusion, frustration, or what.
But I do know it's not a happy sound.

To go from the original cinematic masterpiece to this flashy action, motorcycle riding, pandering of the franchise? That's what I get from the trailer.
However, obviously I haven't seen any of the true material, so for now I guess I should hold my tongue.

I'll leave you all with this.. Think about it for awhile..
