Audience Reviews for Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045: Season 1

  • Oct 12, 2022
    Unwatchable. If you don't believe they can kill a franchise so established, try it.
  • Sep 15, 2022
    I enjoined it more then SAC and Arise, it catches the original's weirdness in an intriguing way. Netflix has done way worse adaptations with shittier CGI and didn't get this much hate.
  • Jun 12, 2022
    Not sure about the hate towards this series, but as someone who have very limited experience watching anime (let alone the Ghost in the Shell series), this series is enjoyable, great visual and pretty good character development.
  • Feb 14, 2022
    Of all the recent failed reboots this is the best attempt. SAC 2045 lacks the depth of the original Laughing Man or Individual Eleven stories but it's a far better representation of the GITS world than the live action movie. The 3D rendered animation is OK. I'd preferred to see it drawn as the original but it doesn't distract from the story. The story was just getting really interesting as the first season ended.
  • Dec 28, 2021
    I had high hopes till I saw they made it in 3DCG. Stop making anime in 3D, it looks clunky, ugly and it's predecesor's put it to shame. Just please stop! This could of been good but making the Major look like a kid was another dissapointment
  • Oct 05, 2021
    I am waiting for several years for the continuation of the show. I loved the first season and I am really looking forward to the second season.
  • Jul 31, 2021
    This was an excellent addition to the GITS franchise and I can only imagine that the negative reviews is just the usual Rotten Tomatoes attempting to be a kingmaker nonsense. The site cannot be trusted to give accurate reviews so I recommend watching anything that tickles your fancy.
  • Feb 22, 2021
    I watched and own every single ghost in the shell anime and I was quite dubious about this one. I really wanted to hate it but once you get passed your apprehension it is a really enjoyable addition to the franchise.
  • Feb 07, 2021
    I think most of the reviewers on this need to take at least half a step back. This SOLID series did a terrific job of continuing the series without re-imagining it. I do reckon the first 8 episodes should have been wraped into a movie with a full 12 episodes after but understand the series was approved for 2 seasons off the bat and thats what they had to work with. Once the new paradigm of the GitS universe is established the episodes are 'near' identical in grit and depth as the original series (sadly the number of those episodes in this season are few). I would much prefer to see this series go to 5 or more seasons than have to endure even the opening episodes of any one of the sparkling peices of trash that have become so regular post paid streaming so drastically altered what is presented and available to viewers (even on free to air and paid cable). Top job, there better be more coming.

    The plot was unbearably stupid. The concept of Sustainable Warfare is preposterous. Ignoring that, is the post-human story any better? Well, the fact that SW is so completely unrelated to that, it can be ignored, is problematic enough. But, no, when it comes to the reveal at the end. NO! It's embarrassing. I skipped the last episode. I mean, apparently it's a cliffhanger, and if THAT is gonna be a running plot... Apparently I'm supposed to buy the antagonist's...bleargh...motivations...but he clearly created the whole thing in his stupid, bobble head. And it was THAT that I waited eleven episodes for? SKIP THIS ABOMINATION. It was one dumb thing after another. DON'T WATCH THIS CRAP. The animation is what annoys most people. I thought everything but the faces was great. Of course, the faces are the most important part. Bobble-head, emotion free makes it easy to ignore the characters and focus on the...plot...oh... Because the heads did not show any emotion, I was able to enjoy the English dub. I find English dub and faces out of sinc usually. If I closed my eyes, and didn't really listen to what they were saying...which was unbearably stupid...then the dubbing actors were pretty good.
