Definitely not confirmed as a movie. Ubakata is the series compositor. It's either an OVA or a series, but if Toho registered the domain, TV series is more likely.

I'm gonna keep my expectations low after E7AO.

Particularly since I don't know either the director or this Cornelius fellow. I hope at least Yoko Kanno and Origa do the OP or ED. Seriously. Hope. For. This.

If it's a retelling, it can be to their advantage to find another group for the OP and ED. Clean slate and all that.

It's nothing exceptional, but then again, GitS' story is all about conveying to the audience of the innate understanding of the world the story takes place. After watching both film of Scramble, I think Ubukata is capable enough. I would also love to read what you would say about the overall animation effort in Scramble when you get around to watch it. I personally think that even for film/ova standard, there are few that can match the overall animation effort demonstrated in Scramble.

At this point I could care less if it is OVA or movie. A TV series, of course, would make me ecstatic, but I just want to hear Motoko-neesan conjugate words once again.

That glimpse of Motoko's design looks like the chara designs in the Oshii movies, though...

That's hardly what I'd call an advantage. Nostalgia aside, the combination of freakin Yoko Kanno and Origa is just that good.

Very nice news!

Now while I've enjoyed every iteration of ghost in the shell thus far, it'd be nice if this is finally the installment that inserts that humorous edge that the shirow manga had. I'd love to see an adaption that has that element to the characters, though I bet my hopes are most likely to be dashed. As long as its quality work though, no big deal.

As long as her character is just as awesome, and as long as it's not moe or plain old bad, I really don't mind what her design looks like. Personally, I think this one's nice enough. I just hope she ends up with Tanaka/McGlynn's voice.

The official site confirms that the Feb 12 press conference will be 60 minutes long and be streamed live worldwide via Niconico, Bandai Channel, and Youtube.

On the plus side, the character design makes it clear they won't turn this into a moe fest. On the other hand, only 60 minutes?? That's all? I'm kinda disappointed.

The conference is 60 minutes long not the show.

How long do you want a press conference to be? They'll screen a trailer and there'll be special guests talking about the project, and then everyone goes home.

Given the visuals, does it mean it could be a prequel ?

It could be a story about a younger Makoto, sure, but it's not going to be connected to any previous GitS. It'll be its own thing, just like SAC and the GitS movies aren't connected.

Hum... reboot keeps me on edge about this. Not sure if good or bad.

The lack of Yoko Kanno and Origa can be either a blessing by lowering the comparisons to the previous work or a curse due to sheer lack of brilliance (big fan here).

The same writer as Mardock Scramble however makes my expectations rise again. Those were some pretty good movies and very much in line with how I expect GITS to be.

I'm not a big fan of that new chara design though but I'll wait and see.

Overall 3 potential pluses vs 3 potential minuses. Prognosis: cautiously optimistic.
