Hello! I’m Mishi! Today, what I want to recommend to you guys to watch is Ghost in the Shell : The New Movie (攻殻機動隊 新劇場版/Kokaku Kidotai : Shin Gekijoban). It is a part of Ghost in the Shell Arise and this is the last of Arise series. How do you like the series of Arise? Do you like them or not? ?(T-T ))(( T-T)? My point for this movie is if it can summarize the Arise series altogether or not. Let’s see how this movie goes and how it connects them together! (*´д`*)

Mishi’s top picks for Otaku
I wondered how this is the last movie of Arise series but actually, it was good. As this movie picks the past Arise series up and gives us a new story. It connects to the past Arise series and goes back to usual Public Security Section 9 which we have seen in the different movies. I could watch without feeling weird and makes me like more of Ghost in the Shell series.
You can get to see Motoko growing up and starting to have leadership. On this movie, the scenes of all of the characters are equalized to be on the screen so I am sure that all fans of each character can enjoy watching without complaining! Who is your favorite character?? ( ・ω・)? I like Motoko, of course, but I also like Saito. Isn’t he a cool guy, even though he sleeps a lot?? Which hair style of Motoko do you like best? I think this version of her is best! She is so cute with her bangs! I think about having the same hair style too. lol, Well, I am glad that her hair came back!
But I think it is hard for people to understand this movie if you haven’t watched the series of Arise so what I want to say is I think you have to watch 4 parts of movies at first and watch this movie at last. I recommend this way. There are a couple of new words that would confuse people so it is best to watch early movies at first and try this movie next. I do suggest this way better. Although, you might be able to feel the worldview of Ghost in the Shell!
There are many negative comments for this movie but my opinion is a positive way. It is described the process of how Public Security Section 9 has been made dramatically and as an axis of Motoko and the member of Public Security Section 9, the story of this movie has twists and turns! This part creates the thrills and excitements for us to watch and won’t let you keep your eyes away from it! I think as the last of Arise series, it was done well. What about your opinion?? (｀Д´≡｀Д´)?? I definitely recommend you guys to watch this movie after those 4 movies! (ノ∇≦*)
