I've only recently discovered that this fan edit exists - and I've just finished watching it. My reaction:
GitS is perhaps my most watched/read series since first seeing the film sometime in 1996, and when I walked out at the end of the first showing of the live-action movie I was gutted. Why they wanted to graft on a load of Robocop-lost-memory plot was beyond me.
If I'd have seen this version of the film in the cinema, I'd have walked out elated! Absolutely AMAZING work on the editing - this has gone from a film I was trying my best to forget about to one that I will quite happily watch again.
It may be belated thanks, but thank you very, very, very much for putting this together!
