re­leased OUT NOW! 2015 | 15 | Blu-ray/dVd

This ver­sion of the cy­ber­punk anime is sub­ti­tled The New Movie, but it’s no re­boot for new­bies. In­stead it con­tin­ues cur­rent se­ries Arise, with re­booted ver­sions of the cy­borg he­roes.

There’s a good last bat­tle, but gen­er­ally it’s be­low-par GITS, with de­cent char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment and ideas nearly buried un­der a ridicu­lously con­vo­luted story.

Extras The DVD has none; the Blu-ray has three short fea­turettes. An­drew Os­mond

Is there a car­toon mirror on this page?
