Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 (Episodes 1-12) Review



SPOILER-FREE SYNOPSIS: In the year 2045, sustainable warfare has made an even wider gap between the haves and the have-nots in certain areas of the world. Motoko Kusanagi, Batou, and other former Section 9 members are now GHOST, a PMC that cleans up messes in the U.S., but have found themselves entangled in a bigger plot. So-called "post-humans" threaten the world order, and Section 9 is revived in Japan, at the behest of the newest Prime Minister. But is the Prime Minister just a puppet for the American government? And is there more to these post-humans than just superhuman monsters? The gang's all back to brain dive into a brand new series by Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki!

I'm looking forward to this. Arise gets a bad rep, but that's just because it isn't SAC. Or maybe because it's too much like SAC, and yet isn't. I sort of understand, but they're both good, and I think people just dismissed it out of hand because neither Oshii nor Kamiyama were handling this. But it honestly looks like it'll be even better than the previous Arise entries at the very least.
