Cestus

Arise is lacking compared to the rest of the franchise. It lacks the sophistication of ideas and the thematic depth. Just mediocre.

Dirt_Claude

“Let’s take the mediocre ARISE OVAs, jumble ’em up, then stick two original episodes at the end so they might watch it all again.” No.

Erik_The_Red

I watched this because I wanted more Ghost in the Shell. I don’t know if I liked what I got from Arise, it lacked structure and tension.

chieterasu

I really liked this set of stories in the GitS franchise.
