Netflix reveals trailer and key art for “Ghost in the Shell” anime series featuring the voices of Atsuko Tanaka, Akio Otsuka, and Koichi Yamadera.
Created by Masamune Shirow, the sequel of the much-acclaimed Ghost In the Shell SAC series has come back as a full 3DCG anime series. Directors Kenji Kamiyama, Shinji Aramaki, Production I.G, and SOLA DIGITAL ARTS will collaborate once again following ULTRAMAN. This is the first Ghost In the Shell series to be brought to fans with a double director.
In 2045, the world has been thrown into a state of systematic “sustainable war,” but the threat of human extinction at the hands of AI hasn’t yet pervaded the public consciousness. Former members of Public Security Section 9, including full-body cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi, are working as hired mercenaries when mysterious beings known as “post humans” begin to emerge. The world’s superpowers are trying to come to grips with the threat, and so Section 9 is reorganized.
Legendary voice casts (Japanese) include Atsuko Tanaka, Osamu Saka, Akio Otsuka, Koichi Yamadera, Yutaka Nakano, Toru Okawa, Takashi Onozuka, Taro Yamaguchi, and Sakiko Tamagawa.
Based on the manga “Ghost in the Shell” by Masamune Shirow, the anime 3DCG series launches on Netflix this April.
