The new Ghost in the Shell: Arise series is essentially Motoko Begins

An extended trailer for the four-movie Ghost in the Shell: ARISE anime series has arrived, and if Motoko's odd character design is still freaking you out, these familiar faces should put you at ease. Section 9's Batou, Togusa (who clearly has a lifetime commitment to his mullet) and the Chief make their appearances.

There's a bit more cyborg action and cyber-stuff, too, so that's nice. Motoko's Battle Lingerie doesn't make an appearance, but at one point she is in her underwear, so at least we know Production I.G is continuing to work with GitS' main themes. The first movie hits Japan on June 22nd, 2013.
