Anchor Bay Entertainment is going to blow us all away as the groundbreaking anime film GHOST IN THE SHELL comes to Bluray in March of 2017. Encased in a limited-edition Mondo key art collectible Steelbook packaging, it is a way to continue the celebration that began in 2014 with the 25th anniversary of the original Manga.

The story surrounds Major Motoko Kusanagi, a cybernetic agent working with the Internal Bureau of Investigations looking for The Puppet Master. Now a threatening computer virus has come out of the box and into human hosts. Agents from Section 9 along with Maj. Kusanagi have no time to capture the entity before the take over is complete.


GHOST IN THE SHELL is directed by the legendary anime director Mamoru Oshii in this award-winning, cyber-tech thriller. Questioning human existence in the information age, this film is one of the leading Japanese animation films of all time.

The film brought a new dimension of anime in the 1990’s merging traditional animation with computer graphic imagery. This brings stunning sci-fi animation along with artistic expression with a unique story line. Director Oshii based the film experience on the comic by Masamune Shirow.
