    Ghost In The Shell: Arise

    I'm not a huge anime guy but I've always really liked the Ghost In The Shell series. Glad to see some new material coming out soon.

    From Twitch:

    "Arise will consist of four 50 minute parts and fans in Japan will get their first look this summer.

    The first part, "Ghost Pain," will run in Japanese theaters for two weeks starting on Saturday, June 22. There will be advance Blu-ray Disc copies with a bundled scenario book available at participating theaters for 8,000 yen (about US$85). There will also be paid streaming of the project, at least in Japan.

    The general retail release of the first part's Blu-ray Disc will be on July 26.

    Writer Tow Ubukata confirmed during the broadcast that the show will be a prequel series featuring Motoko when she was younger."

    Trailer!

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    A little disappointed that Mamoru Oshii is still not directly involved in a writer/director way. But it looks okay so far. It's basically four OVA's and I'm hoping that they can get away with more explicit content. Not that GITS needs tits and gore but it's certainly part of what gave the original film its edge and you can tell in the TV show SAC and 2nd Gig that they wanted to go that extra mile but could not because it's on TV.

    I don't know what to think of it. As I said earlier; it would be nice if the series got a bit edgier in terms of content like the original film but at the same time the project comes off as milking the cow.

    I just want to see Oshii do a 3rd film.

    Link is up at CDJapan for the Blu-ray, but not English subtitles are listed.

    So I'll wait for a domestic release.
