All About the new Ghost in the Shell: Arise

Well guys, I usually don’t post too many about anime news here, but from now plan to start a little more.


Today, I found a lot of information or should I say “contents” that I want to share about the new Ghost in the Shell: Arise

First, recently crunchyroll has published a news about the new Manga about the new serie, where we can have a better look over the new visual of the characters like Batou and Major Kusanagi.

While the Ghost in the Shell: Arise, four part anime series kicks off with the first 50 minute episode premiering in Japanese theaters June 22nd, ahead of its July Blu-ray release, the manga tie-in has already launched with a 45 page chapter in Gekkan Young Magazine.

In my opinion I loved the Major’s new look (and her hair), the original was a little Slut.

Bellow the openning:

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 and DVD will be on July 26.

Series composition and scriptwriter Tow Ubukata confirmed during the broadcast that the show will be a prequel series featuring Motoko when she was younger.

The staff also announced the show’s cast:

Maaya Sakamoto as Mokoto Kusanagi
Kenichirou Matsuda as Batou
Tarusuke Shingaki as Togusa
Tomoyuki Dan as Ishikawa
Takurou Nakakuni as Saito
Youji Ueda as Paz
Kazuya Nakai as Borma
Ikkyuu Juku as Daisuke Aramaki

At the beginning of her voice-acting career, Sakamoto provided the voice of the pivotal little girl who speaks the very last line in the first Ghost in the Shell film.


A manga adaptation, Ghost in the Shell Arise Sleepless Eye (Nemuranai Me no Otoko), will debut in the April issue of Kodansha‘s Monthly Young Magazine on March 13. Newcomer Takumi Ōyama will draw the series, and Jun’ichi Fujisaku will write the story. Fujisaku previously worked on the screenplay for both seasons of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. Fujisaku also worked on the screenplay for Blood+, Otogi Zoshi, Appleseed XIII, and Real Drive.

Well that’s all guys, cya. 🙂
