(SPECULATION) It is possible that Kuze is the part of Project 2501 in the first GitS movie that seeked Major and reunited with her in the cyberspace. —This unsigned comment was made by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) .
Dont understand why people speculate that. The movie is a different universe then the series. If they were the same universe the movie would take place a couple of years before the series since the date is stated in the beginning of the film. —This unsigned comment was made by 184.108.40.206 (talk • contribs) .
Isnt it more likely that the anime while going through some of the same themes used a somewhat similar situation? There is certainly nothing in the movie to say that the AI knew the major beforehand. —This unsigned comment was made by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs) .
