    Ghost In The Shell 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Coming 9/30/14 From Anchor Bay

    Press release!

    "Mind-blowing Hard Science Fiction that live action has yet to match."
    -- Harry Knowles, AICN

    25 years ago, a breathtaking leap in the history of animation stunned and amazed audiences, with the release of Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell. Now, to celebrate a quarter century of its groundbreaking blend of traditional cel and CGI animation, Anchor Bay Entertainment proudly announces the Ghost in the Shell 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray(TM). Boasting an all new HD transfer, the GitS 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray(TM) streets September 30th with an SRP of $29.99. Pre-book is August 27th.

    2029 - A female government cyber agent and the Internal Bureau of Investigations are hot on the trail of a "The Puppet Master" - a computer virus capable of invading cybernetic brains and altering its victim's memory. Created by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and codenamed "Project 2501", this 'hacker' is actually a prototype virtual agent which has now defied its makers by seeking asylum within a new host body outside of the electronic net. Now the two agencies must maneuver against each another in a violent, high-tech race to capture the omnipresent entity.

    When released in 1995, Ghost in the Shell took the world by storm exhibiting a new dimension of anime with unprecedented and mesmerizing cinematic expression. Seamlessly merging traditional cel animation with the latest computer graphic imagery, this stunning sci-fi spectacle broke through the boundaries of mainstream animation with detailed artistic expression and a uniquely intelligent story line. The film has gone on to inspire a generation of filmmakers and has become the most revered anime feature of all time. Veteran anime writer/director/producer Mamoru Oshii, working in conjunction with the animators at Production I.G. (Blood: The Last Vampire, Kaidohmaru, Kill Bill) brought to life Masamune Shirow's vision.

    This excellent cyberpunk thriller was co-produced by Manga Entertainment and enjoyed both critical and popular success at the U.S. box office and was the first Japanese animated film to reach No. 1 on the Billboard Top Video Sales Chart.

    The Blu that's already out there is pretty good though. Why the need for another?

    Maybe some people didn't realize that the Ghost in the Shell 2.0 release also featured a remastered version of the original film without the added CGI of the 2.0 remix?
    It's all in the reflexes.

    I have a copy of the Japanese Blu and thought it looked amazing enough. New extras or possibly a redubbed English track would make me interested.
