WATCH: ‘Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045’ goes 3DCG in first trailer
MANILA, Philippines – The first full trailer for the upcoming anime Ghost In The Shell: SAC_2045 is out, lending a touch of CGI to the beloved manga.
The trailer was released by Netflix Japan on January 27, and features an animation style that differs from the traditional hand-drawn manga/anime style beloved by fans.
Created by Masamune Shirow, the sequel of the Ghost In the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (SAC) series is returning this time as a full 3DCG anime series.
The upcoming series is set in the year 2045, in a world thrown into a state of systematic "sustainable war." In this world, former members of Public Security Section 9, including full-body cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi, work as hired mercenaries when mysterious beings known as "post humans" begin to emerge, threatening the existence of humans.
It's the first Ghost in the Shell series to feature two directors, with Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki at the helm. They are reuniting with studios Production I.G, and SOLA DIGITAL ARTS, following their work together on Ultraman.
