I’ll give it a chance, because I love GITS, but it looks like the Star Wars Rebels version of GITS.

Well... they got the original cast plus the director of the original Stand Alone Complex series, so it might be good.

But that CG did not look good. It looks like a last generation PS3 or Xbox 360 game. And I'm not liking the emphasis on action, as GITS:SAC was always more of a cerebral show. Still, the trailer probably focused on the action to hype things up. There may be some room for good writing yet.

I see ugly CG anime on Netflix is getting slightly better. We've moved from Ps2 era to early Ps3

It's a sliiiiiight improvement from the teaser, but not by much. CG quality is still stuck in the early 2000's which sucks.

It also seems too action-focused. But then again trailers tend to be misleading on that front. I hope what remains of the SAC cast keeps the spirit of the original works, especially the philosophical/existential angle.

Btw, what on Earth is that crappy soundtrack ? Where's Kenji Kawai or Yoko Kanno when we need them ?

All in all, I'm still keeping an eye on it because GITS is the GOAT but my expectations are kept in check.

Not a fan of anything about this new show but what annoys me the most is that Production IG chose the wrong character designer for this.

lol oh man....

3D animation is gonna take another unfair criticism because the showrunners decided to go for an awful art direction (like Sonic movie). I'm 99% sure the client wanted something along the lines of "we want a cartoony look like Borderlands but realistic. It has to be cartoony but it cannot have cel shading."

Aramaki huh. Expecting that the mocap will probably be okay but story will be terrible. The appleseed cgi movies were largely unwatchable.
I thought the white-washing of Briarios in Appleseed:ExMachina was especially lame.

Edit: Watched the trailer; corrected my expectations.

Netflix really loves to mess up beloved Anime franchises huh.
First Saint Seia and now GITS, how the fuck did they make Castlevania?
