We have met, for each of us to walk forward.
Takao, who is training to become a shoemaker, skipped school and is sketching shoes in a Japanese-style garden. He meets a mysterious woman, Yukino, who is older than him. Then, without arranging the times, the two start to see each other again and again, but only on rainy days. They deepen their relationship and open up to each other. But the end of the rainy season soon approaches…
A first teaser trailer and some more details for the upcoming Ghost in the Shell Arise project were released during a launch event on Tuesday. Arise will be a series of four 50-minute episodes, with the first epsiode “Ghost Pain” opening in selected Japanese theaters on June 22nd. A DVD and Blu-ray Disc release will follow in July…hopefully with English subtitles like recent GitS related releases.
It was also revealed that Arise will be prequel and will take place in the year 2027, three years before the events of the first GitS film.
