Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Borders 1 & 2 Blu-ray

Posted July 22, 2014 12:46 PM by Webmaster

FUNimationFUNimation Entertainment is bringing the first two parts of Ghost in the Shell: Arise to Blu-ray this fall. The four-part re-imagining of Masamune Shirow's manga and Mamoru Oshii's feature film (1995) is produced by Production I.G. Borders 1 & 2 arrive on Blu-ray on October 21st.

Official Synopsis: The cyberpunk classic that sparked a phenomenon returns with all new story lines combining breathtaking visual effects and exhilarating action sequences. Ghost in the Shell: Arise sheds new light on the mysteries that have haunted fans for decades, while rebooting the genre it helped define. Episodes include:
  • Border 1: Ghost Pain - Set against a backdrop of international arms dealers, exploding cyborgs, and murdered prostitutes, this origins story plays out with a futuristic flair for the destructive. When cyborg hacker Motoko Kusanagi is hired to investigate a devastating bombing, she must fight her way through a maze of phantom memories to unlock her mysterious past and track down the evil mastermind behind the attacks.

  • Border 2: Ghost Whispers - Witness the formation of the legendary Public Security Section 9. When a clandestine organization hacks every car in the city, Kusanagi recruits a lethal team of cyber operatives that includes a badass brawler with Special Forces training, an explosives expert, a technology specialist, and a chain-smoking jack-of-all-trades with a sordid past. Together this ruthless gang of enforcers sets out to clamp down on the chaos and make the city safe again.

The 2-disc Blu-ray release of Ghost in the Shell: Arise is presented in 1080p with English and Japanese Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround tracks and English subtitles. 70 minutes of special features are included with Borders 1 & 2, although FUNimation has yet to reveal additional details.

I hope when I finally get around to watching this I can get past my extreme dislike of Motoko's character design.

She does seem a bit dainty. But considering she's voiced by Maaya Sakamoto, it's actually kinda' fitting.

Yawnnnnn. Boring. It's a crime the original SAC isn't even released on blu-ray in the US, but they feel more concerned about releasing this garbage. I hope they muck up the transfer, knowing Fugimation, that's probably very likely

Funimation would make a ton of money if they released the 1st and 2nd GIGs on blu. I'll pick this up in the meantime.

They better use the same English voice cast that they use in the SAC and 2nd Gig.

I bought the first two through Amazon in Japan. I'm flying to Tokyo in eight days and will pick up Arise 3. I think that Arise 4 comes out in theatres September 6. You can always order the S.A.C through Amazon Japan

@doraemon25
The Japanese releases have English Sub titles? Also the prices for anime in Japan are ridiculous.
