Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell: Arise Trailer

First off, the Major’s new character design looks better animated. I still don’t like it, but it’s not a train wreck. What’s with the Kaneda cosplay though?

The soundtrack… pretty bland. Cornelius ain’t no Kawai Kenji or Kanno Yoko. Still, not something I’ll mind as long as it’s serviceable.

Overall, not optimistic.

Ghost in the Shell: Arise

A new Ghost in the Shell series has been announced. First reaction, “it’s about time!”. And then you see the character design of the Major on the official site. I don’t like it. Never mind Kamiyama Kenji (director of Stand Alone Complex) has confirmed he’s not involved in any capacity and Kanno Yoko isn’t handling the soundtrack. This collage should make it pretty clear why I’m not happy:

just LOOK at her

Kenji Kawai – Ghost in the Shell OST (Cinema Symphony)

Because I had danced, the beautiful lady was enchanted

Because I had danced, the shining moon echoed

Proposing marriage, the god shall descend

The night clears away and the chimera bird will sing

Live performance off Kenji Kawai’s Cinema Symphony DVD. Even better live.
