New information has been released on the Ghost in the Shell: Arise project that will commence on June 13. This time, the four-part Ghost in the Shell animated work is collaborating with the Microsoft Surface Windows tablet. Details have yet to emerge, however, an image of characters holding Surfaces has been released. It's predicted that the Surface may appear within the anime.
Ghost in the Shell was Masamune Shirow's bit hit manga of the '90s. In 1995, an animated film of the work was released and gathered much attention. In 2002, a TV anime adaptation began broadcasting. Thereafter in 2004 and 2006, two more TV anime adaptations were broadcast. Alongside the animes' broadcasts, films were released in theaters in 2004, 2008, and 2011. It may not seem like it, but it is rare for a series to be animated for such a long period of time. The series' popularity is incredibly high. Now Ghost in the Shell: Arise is receiving full support from fans, just like before!
