This is a redo of some Ghost in the Shell OVAs I haven’t seen.
I was never a big fan of Ghost in the Shell, although it used to be the most popular anime there was, back in the day. Or at least in the circles I ran in… Now you barely hear people mention it anymore.
I was always uncomfortable with the show’s themes. And now, after over a decade of the Patriot Act, endless war, drone strikes, and the CIA and NSA continuing to seize and abuse power since the show first aired… it’s hard to take something like Ghost in the Shell Arise sitting down. I just don’t have the stomach for another nine episodes glorifying abuse of power and violence when these characters and their real life counterparts ought to be in jail but instead continue to be well-respected, wealthy members of society in good standing.
