I can't help but think that some of the scenes from the preview were taken straight from the OVAs that are already out.

The Major really needs to get back into her old shell. What the hell happened to that thing anyway?

If you haven't been watching them, (they're on netflix), then you won't understand.

The Arise series is a prequel to the movie and SAC series, and is about the formation of section 9. (it is section 9, right? I always forget)

I thiink the reason they did it is to reiterate that these are before the GITS that you already know.

As for me, I'm happy with most GITS releases (I dread the american movie though)

I thought they follow manga canon.

O.o

I have no clue what's canon or not. I can tell you she was working for a branch of the military, her ghost was hacked, and it started on the current case were she meets aramaki who's setting up a new division. She has a run in with Batou and some of the others, and any more will really really spoil it. :P

Seems like a prequel to end all prequels to me..

There are four separate iterations of the Ghost in the Shell story at this point: the original manga by Masamune Shirow, the first two movies by Mamoru Oshii, Stand Alone Complex (both TV seasons and the third movie) and now ARISE.

Each iteration has its own separate canon.

A bit of clarification from ANN on what Alternative Architecture will be:
http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-02-17/ghost-in-the-shell-arise-broadcast-to-add-2-new-episodes/.85069


The broadcast will recompile the four existing episodes and include two new episodes, to tie the series with the new Ghost in the Shell movie premiering this summer.

This means that if anyone simulcasts it, it would be Funimation (at least for the regions they have the Arise license for). While they licensed the Psycho-Pass re-edit with probably even less new material, that was part of a package deal for a series that sold very well for them. I'm not clear on how well Arise has performed.

Yes and they are adding 2 episodes as a lead in to the Arise Movie, so it'll probably be about 10 episodes.

Is G.I.T.S : AAA actually going to be worth watching if you have already seen the Arise OVA's ? In my opinion, No.

As i already have seen the OVA's i'm not sure what new things this can bring to the table, as both trailers i've seen show scenes from the OVA's, the only thing that's keeping me interested are the two episodes that are to set up the movie in the summer.

I'm sure that the 2 trailers that have been released just show footage from the OVA's
