19:28 - musclassia Also, they have an interesting story that's proven popular elsewhere that they can expose to audiences naive to GitS, instead of having to come up with a completely original story that's good and well-received
19:15 - Marcus I think part of it is to expose GitS to a Western audience, and it's way easier to do thing through a live-action movie than through another anime entry (anime wide releases tend to do terribly in the US)
19:06 - VIG That's not why Im upset, although it sounds that way. Im upset because why are they even making a remake, animated or not? It's kind of pointless, but if they are just trying to get the word out about the original then I get it.
