[Anime]/First 8minutes of GitS: Arise!

Well, it's been a while since we've heard about the new Ghost in the Shell: Arise mini-series...has it really been already? However, the folks at Funimation have gifted everyone with a bit of a surprise over the past couple of about 8minutse of the first episode?!

While only the first two installments, 50min each, will be hitting theaters, all four of them will be released on Blu-ray. Not sure when they'll hit the shelves but I know that I'm definitely curious after watching this one...

According to Anime News Network, here's the synopsis:

The anime's story is set in 2027, one year after the end of the fourth non-nuclear war. Newport City is still reeling from the war's aftermath when it suffers a bombing caused by a self-propelled mine. Then, a military officer implicated in arms-dealing bribes is gunned down. During the investigation, Public Security Section 9's Daisuke Aramaki encounters Motoko Kusanagi, the cyborg wizard-level hacker assigned to the military's Secret Unit 501. Batou, a man with the "eye that does not sleep," suspects that Kusanagi is the one behind the bombing. The Niihama Prefectural Police detective Togusa is pursuing his own dual cases of the shooting death and a prostitute's murder. Motoko herself is being watched by Secret Unit 501's head Kurutsu and cyborg agents.So far it looks great and I think that while the trailer got mixed reviews, this should definitely put some calm into the stormy waters that fans have frothed up over the past few months...

And now...the moment GitS fans are waiting for...the first 8 minutes!
