Well 2 days ago the first episode/movie for this new series was released, I thought it fit well into the GITS universe on all levels and outside of that I still enjoyed watching it. Personally I have nothing to complain about it so far, because compared to the other GITS stuff it stacks up well and I enjoyed the others.

Anyways what do you guys think about Arise? is it good, bad, or meh.

It was OK. Not amazing, but it was OK. Hope the second episode...movie...whatever is better.

It looks like it has promise. First episode/movie whatever was slow but it's a new take so I expected some Universe building.

Love the OST.

Wasn't sure about the redesign of the Major but it works. Her VA is pretty good and overall it was a pretty good start.

I love Ghost in the Shell, but I am a little wary of this new series. New character designs are meh and....I just don't know how solid the plotting will be. I actually intend to watch it though.

I don't get why people got so bent about the Major. Did they see what they did to Saito? I mean, damn.

Character designs are completely fine for me now that I have seen the first OVA, the Mayor looking more 'girlish' could even derive from the fact that she may not have her 'adult' prosthetic body yet.
The plot seems quite solid too, I don't think that I will greatly disappointed with it. What I don't like is that they gave Motoko a

Keen though I am to see Arise, I actually want to wait until they announce the dub cast first. The dub for SAC was so near perfect that I'd happily hold on for it, if they bring back the same VAs.

I know it's dubious, considering that they've recast the Japanese voices for both Kusanagi and Batou, but I'd at least like to rule it out as a possibility before I commit to anything.
