1st Impression: Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 (Final Trailer)
Netflix continues to be driving force for anime properties and their upcoming Ghost in the Shell series hits Netflix next month.
Release Date: April 23, 2020
Plot Synopsis: 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. 1st Impression: The new Ghost in the Shell series serves as a sequel for the Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex series and uses a 3D CG anime style that Netflix anime fans may recognize from the Ultraman series. The ULTRAMAN team is involved with this new Ghost in the Shell series and their fingerprints are definitely all over it in a good way.
I am very happy with what Netflix has done with its anime series and this iteration of Ghost in the Shell looks incredibly promising and after the modest success of the live-action film, I think fans would want to see Major in the medium that made her popular.
