Before "Ghost In The Shell"… before "Stand Alone Complex" … there was "ARISE"! Or more specifically, "Ghost in the Shell: Arise is a four-part OVA series that serves as a re-imagining of Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell. The four-part series features new character designs and is directed by Kazuchika Kise, screenplay by Tow Ubukata, and music by Cornelius." (Wiki). Two Episodes have since been released (and I enjoyed them both! ARISE + First 8mins of ARISE 2) and this is the trailer for the 3rd, titled 『ARISE border:3 Ghost Tears』 (Video in Japanese language with no English subs tho).
And while it is not "life-altering" as the OG GITS film was, it serves as a decent "fix" for GITS-needs (or you can go buy/rent the SAC series or films instead, no worries). 『ARISE border:3 Ghost Tears』 premiers June 28, 2014.
"Posing as lovers on vacation, Motoko and Batou work to try to stop a terrorist organization whose symbol is the Scylla (スクラサス Sukurasu?). Meanwhile, Togusa investigates a murder of a man who possessed a prosthetic leg manufactured by the Mermaid's Leg corporation." (Wiki)http://www.kokaku-a.jp/
