So, I found some news about GitS as a whole for its 25th anniversary from ANN! www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/… I haven't looked much into it, but I assume that the 'Laughing Man #1' and 'Tachikomatic Days #6-7' are manga adaptations, most likely from the SAC Manga series, based on how the article is written. I've checked the Dark Horse and Kondasha comic sites and didn't see any info about these releases,(or I missed them entirely). On a personal note, if this is true, I know where my paycheck will be going....If anybody can find some more legit news postings about this, please leave it in the comments!
I found that some blog posters have seen the chapters of Arise in full. I have decided NOT to post any blogs that will have been released because of spoilers. If anybody wants to read the reviews or watch the episodes themselves, it is easy to find. Once the series is released in the US, I will probably post a journal asking what fans opinions. PLEASE refrain from reviews in this post, (your comment will be hidden).
Funimation has licensed Arise www.funimation.com/lee/blog/fu… . So, does this mean the voice actors will be new from the previous series? Love to see fans thoughts on this.
I will post all upcoming trailers/manga/news about Arise I can find on one page for convenience All articles are in English except the youtube pages where I found the trailers.
