Apparently the members of section 9 used to be very ugly when they were young.

the little bit of faith I still had for this new GiTS just got crushed.... Ever since I heard the writer was Tow Ubukata I just knew it was gonna be crap . This new GiTS is just the terrible Mardock Scramble under a new coat of paint. =/

At least it seems they are taking some cues from Akira. The city, the motorcycle, the Major's red outfit... All from Akira.

But what a downgrade from these:

While we are on the subject of Ghost in the Shell, could someone give me the full chronology of all the Ghost in the Shell series and movies. I mean in the actual order that they were release and not the according to the timeline of the mythology. You know what; I could use that as well, if someone is kind enough to give both. But the actual release order is more important.

I was aware of the original movie and SAC and 2nd Gig. The last several years I have watching other anime. I recently got access to the Manga Entertainment streaming service and I noticed that there are 7 or 8 GiTS releases on there. And now this article is telling me about a 9th one. I need to catch up and I want to watch them all in order of release.

I'll reserve judgement until I see it, but as a fan of the original work I really don't have high hopes for this reboot thing.
