Re: Hollywood: stop wrecking something good!
"wasn't bad but it also lacked the quality and depth of the originals"
I prefer to think of Arise as being a prequel created by somebody who never actually watched the films/series(es!) and instead wrote something "fresh and exciting" based upon some character descriptions.
On my harddisc, Arise is stored in a directory called "Arise". It isn't a subdirectory of "GiTS"...
