Full cgi if done right can be fantastic (see the last Appleseed movie) or shitty (see the Appleseed tv series). I reserve judgement until I actually see an episode.

Kuvshinov kinda confirmed it: https://www.instagram.com/p/BriGxNOnyPz/

If they hired such a mediocre tracer as the lead designer you probably can tell how low were their standarts when making this series. BTW, his Motoko looks like Ayanami Rei (temporary name) in her black plugsuit.

I don't know how they do 3DCG, but what I know is No Origa = No GitS :c

I'll keep an eye on this, as much I personally wish to hope to be a continuation of this franchise, it's likely going to end up as the following:

1. A trash tier reboot with forced diversity as a plot element which makes absolutely no sense for the over all story in general and deviates from the original creators idea.

2. Done with the intentions of Netflix pushing for $$$$, clearly going against the creator's wishes, simply because something else (looking at you GITS the movie that one was a big no no) obviously we need to stop this reboot-meta as they don't work. I've yet to see a decent one actually be good.

Oh and Netflix did not kill Deathnote and Bebop anx etc. Modern fans are not so interested in older shows to begin with.

Of course it's not Netlix that killed them, but I'm sure fans of these shows would appreciate if Netflix wouldnt shit all over them

Tell that to the studios that make these movies then.........

İt's like fan made, If this is the main character, it doesn't look like Kusanagi Motoko.
Briefly; no thanks... Old series all ways the best.

Looks autistic junky wasted on a disjointed cash-grab faggotry display by a schizophrenic shitty director.


I understand everything except the bit about the director

It doesn't seem like there's more new info. released via the official magazine site and Ghost in the Shell site like it is indicated on Moca News... Correct me if I'm wrong as I don't obtain the physical magazine.

I hope GiTS 2045 can make its mark in computer graphics anime.

An exclusive streaming deal means Netflix paid out. I'd wager some of that money eventually filters down into the production budget.

Still Netflix doesn't do nothing with the production, paying for exclusive doesn't mean nothing... We would say the same with Amazon paying for exclusivity, or Crunchyroll.

The money has do nothing with the quality of an anime, what actually matter is the staff.
Its true that they do license anime and dont fund it but that's only true with movies and television shows. They completely fund ONA's that are marked as originals on their site and helps with the production. This year they completely funded Devilman Crybaby, Aggretsuko, and B The Beginning and there are more but I'm sticking with the most popular titles this year.

This guy redraws to the point you can argue if he even has one -_-


True the artist doesn’t deviate much from his style
Most of his pictures look identical


And why is that a problem?
