Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Alternative Architecture (攻殻機動隊ARISE ALTERNATIVE ARCHITECTURE, Kōkaku Kidōtai: Araizu - Orutanatibu Ākitekucha, "Mobile Armoured Riot Police: Arise - Alternative Architecture") (officially abbreviated as Ghost in the Shell AAA) is a 2015 Japanese animated television series, based on Masamune Shirow's manga Ghost in the Shell and the Ghost in the Shell: Arise OVAs. The episodes were recompiled from the OVAs, and therefore share the same cast and crew of Kazuchika Kise as director, Tow Ubukata as writer and Cornelius as composer. AAA is animated by Production I.G, and began airing in Japan on April 5, 2015, broadcasting from the Tokyo MX, KBS, SUN, TVA, HTB, OX, SBS, TVQ and BS11 networks.

Ghost in the Shell: AAA contains two episodes of content that were not present in the first four OVAs. This content is split into two episodes, Pyrophoric Cult part I and part II, both of which were later released as a fifth Arise OVA. The events of Pyrophoric Cult act as a prequel to the 2015 film, Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie.

The opening theme is "Anata o tamotsu mono" by Maaya Sakamoto (who also plays the role of Major Kusanagi) and Cornelius
