Next spring, the new series Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is coming to Netflix. The show is in full-3D animation, which is a first for the series.

There is a range of reactions, but for the most part, many are either lukewarm or put off entirely.

Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) and Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) are directing, while Production I.G and Sola Digital Arts are bringing the show to life.

I think what’s causing the negative reaction is the painterly concept art (below) that Netflix revealed last December.

Because of this, I think fans have been taken even more aback by the trailer’s visual style.

Here are some of the reactions:

Like anything, it might take some getting used to. Hopefully, the CG quality will improve when the show airs next spring.
