Ghost in the Shell is my all time favorite Japanese animation and it’s a classic from the 90’s. It’s simply one of the best cyber punk and sci-fi series you can get your hands on. I especially love the philosophy and ethic aspect of the show.
The upcoming movie which feature Scarlett Johansson as Major Mokoto Kusanagi will be airing at 31st March 2017. The trailer is certainly enticing and the visual effects looks awesome.
Here’s the thing, adaptation will always differ as it crosses medium. In this scenario it will be from Japanese Animation to Hollywood movie. I really hope that they will not mess up on it.
