In Japan the other day, announced production of "Ghost in the shell ARISE". it's said that new creation & story... and the biggest difference is her design. I still can't accept... but, I'm glad that the new series begins!
It is going to be hard to top GiTS S.A.C simply because of the emotion that was impacted on that series. It is definitely my favorite version of her even tops the manga for me. Well, I have best wishes for the future of her and yet I will continue to grasp to her original form. Thank you for sharing this piece of work and your opinion!
I like the new design to be honest, I think it's cool that The Major would change her form somewhat as if she were a true human. Kind of gives more emphasis to the Ghost In The Shell concept with her character. I also love how she has a much more conservative design. I hope that if they get to dub it, they bring back the original voice cast from G.I.T.S. SAC for the english dub.
Great picture here btw! I love Tachikoma and The Major :3 I love how you colored them both.
