description

Set in a futuristic Japan after the end of a brutal world war, science has advanced by leaps and bounds giving humanity the choice to prolong life and reduce suffering with the use of sophisticated cybernetics. With all of humanity linked into one system of minds and personalities known as ghosts, the biggest threat to civilization is the cyber terrorists capable of hijacking people's bodies and memories.

Ghost in the Shell has seen numerous iterations over the last 25 years (that's how old this thing is), ranging from the original movie by Mamoru Oshii and its sequel to the two Stand Alone Complex seasons and Solid State Society to the newest reboot in form of the 4-episode Arise series. The “new movie” picks up the plot of the “Fire Starter” virus which was enhanced in the additional Pyrophoric Cult episode that functions as a tie-in between the show and the movie. As such, it should be watched in context of the Arise episodes or the Alternative Architecture re-cut, unless you enjoy being utterly confused by the plot (which this series is notorious for). The animation style and character designs are in the same vein as Arise and the whole movie works more like an extension or conclusion to that plotline than a new chapter.

Ghost in the Shell is a remarkable cultural phenomenon as it seems to get a second wind after its first release over two decades ago. There is a f2p online fps coming up, a planned hollywood adaptation supposedly starring Scarlett Johansson, a futuristic tech-initiative and a (gasp) theatrical play which should be enjoyed in a double bill with Resident Evil/ Biohazard!

Not bad for its advanced age.
