I agree here.

That's why I wasn't a big fan of parts of the manga, too. I greatly preferred the storylines of the SAC series. The SAC movie was okay.

Totally agree. Her character easily makes up for it.

This is my favorite outfit for her in SAC:

Incidentally, I also have that figure. Love it.

The Youtube link that's live appear to be region locked. This is troublesome as then it is questionable if this is actually a world première or not, if there is no legit way to watch the event broadcast.

Now I question the region status of the Nico Broadcast too.

I'm wondering...if this series will become a prequel or sequel, either straight from SAC or puppet master time

But from flashback at SAC even the design is similar when she is at the army..even though this doesn't discount the possibility of even further back prequel.

The other possibility is after puppet master, for those that read the manga I'm sure know of the situation, thus the possibility of having such design is possible

I personally would prefer a puppet master sequel; as good as SAC is I want to see something different.

Eh was hoping for a full TV series, but this is decent enough consolation.

Main cast for GiTS: Arise:

Maaya Sakamoto as Motoko Kusanagi
Kenichirou Matsuda as Batou
Tarusuke Shingaki as Togusa
Tomoyuki Dan as Ishikawa
Nakakuni Takuro as Saito
Yoji Ueda as Paz
Kazuya Nakai as Borma
Ikkyu Jyuku as Daisuke Aramaki

I agree with fanyard that Arise is a prequel...set in the year 2027. More likely ties in with Stand Alone Complex?
Maaya Sakamoto made an appearance during the preview to talk more about her role.

Whoa whoa, a whole new voice cast? :/ Do not like. And Sakamoto Maaya? I love her to bits but I'm not sure she's the right person for this role.

Well, if you needed any more proof that this project is completely independent from the other GITS series/films...

It's definitely a prequel. They said it is about the younger days of the GitS characters, centered around Motoko, before she joined Section 9.

The PV looks okay and the visuals are pretty good even though it's gonna be a prequel that was completely independant from the other GiTS projects. The opening theme looks so-so however, and I was a bit dissapointed it's going to be a 4-part movie series. I'm going to try the first episode to see if it's better than expected, but given how horrible the Shin Kyoto arc of Kenshin received despite liking it for visuals and the fact that it's one of the few old-school shows these days to make an anime comeback, I'm not gonna hold my breath.
