YMMV: Ghost in the Shell: Arise
  • Broken Base: Since this is fourth version of the Ghost in the Shell franchise, it's not hard to see how many are mixed with it.
    • The new character designs, most especially on Motoko's. Of course, the character designs have been changed many times as pointed out in this article.
    • For some, the new voice cast unlike the Oshii movies and the SAC series where they retained the original cast.
  • Genius Bonus: Motoko's mention of Saito's old JGSDF job as a Marine. While the actual JSDF doesn't have one, the Ministry of Defense has made recommendations that the force should have a marine/naval infantry force to conduct amphibious assault in a future conflict if any of its islands or outlying territories are captured by enemy forces due to tensions with China over the Senkaku Islands.
  • Narm: Motoko's face while using a chokehold on one of the cyborgs.
  • Tainted by the Preview: The different art style and character redesigns turned off a lot of fans from watching the series.
