Ghost in the Shell Arise: Ghost Pain Trailer

Gestern wurde ein Trailer zur ersten Episode “Ghost Pain” des Ghost in the Shell: Arise Anime veröffentlicht. Die noch junge Motoko darf hier schonmal ordentlich Ärsche treten.
Die vierteilige Arise Reihe wird ab Ende Juni in Japan ausgestrahlt und landed rund einen Monat später auf DVD und Blu-ray Disc in den Regalen. Englische Untertitel sind dort leider nicht enthalten, bei der Popularität von Ghost in the Shell dürfte eine westliche Veröffentlichung aber nicht lange auf sich warten lassen.

Synopsis:

The story is set in 2027, one year after the end of the fourth non-nuclear war. New Port City is still reeling from the war’s aftermath when it suffers a bombing caused by a self-propelled mine. Then, a military member implicated in arms-dealing bribes is gunned down.
During the investigation, Public Security Section’s Daisuke Aramaki encounters Motoko Kusanagi, the cyborg, wizard-level hacker assigned to the military’s 501st Secret Unit. Batou, a man with the “eye that does not sleep,” suspects that Kusanagi is the one behind the bombing. The Niihama Prefectural Police detective Togusa is pursuing his own dual cases of the shooting death and a prostitute’s murder. Motoko herself is being watched by the 501st Secret Unit’s head Kurutsu and cyborg agents.

Ghost in the Shell Arise: Erster Trailer und mehr Infos

Wie Mitte Jänner angekündigt fand in Japan jüngst ein Launch Event zum neuen Ghost in the Shell Arise Projekt statt. Arise wird demnach aus vier jeweils 50 Minuten langen Filmen bestehen, wobei die erste Episode “Ghost Pain” ab 22. Juni in ausgewählten japanischen Kinos kommt. Gut einen Monat später wird es eine entsprechende DVD und Blu-ray Disc Auskopplungen geben…und hoffentlich mit entsprechend verständlichen Untertiteln versehen.
Zudem wurde ein erster Trailer gezeigt und freundlicherweise gleich ins Netz gestellt:

Die Vermutungen, daß es sich bei Arise um ein Prequel der Ghost in the Shell Filme (spielt im Jahr 2029) und der GitS:Stand Alone Complex Serien (zwischen 2030 und 2035) handelt wurden von Regisseur Kazuchika Kise sowie dem Trailertext bestätigt:

The year 2027
Her name is Motoko Kusanagi.
Attached to the 501st Army Secret Unit.
Heavily Cyborg

Ego
Memories
Hope for the Future

What proves my existence?
It all begins here.

Synopsis:

“Why me?” It was to be the last thought young prostitute Balot, would ever have… as a human, anyway. Taken in by a devious gambler named Shell, she became a slave to his cruel desires and would have been killed by his hand if not for a private investigator and his self-aware Universal Tool, Oefcoque.

Now a cyborg, Balot is not only nigh-invulnerable but has the ability to disrupt electrical systems of all sorts. But even these powers may not be enough for Balot to deal with Shell, who offloads his memories to remain above the law, the immense assassin Dimsdale-Boiled, or the neon-noir streets of Mardock City itself.

Dritter Trailer zu Mardock Scramble: The First Compression

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Synopsis:

The story revolves around a down-and-out teen prostitute in Mardock City named Rune Ballot. One day, she’s picked up by an ambitious casino manager named Shell who gives her everything she could want. Renewed by a false innocence, a false past, and now the false life Shell has given her, Ballot feels grateful. However, she can’t help but be curious about why he’s done so much for her, so she does some research about his past on a computer. This turns out to be a mistake which will change her life greatly. When Shell finds out what she’s done, he attempts to burn her to death by blowing up her car.

Due to the high crime rate in Mardock, a new law called “Scramble 09” has given police carte blanche to take extreme and otherwise illegal measures to revive crime witnesses. With this in mind, they allow a professor to bring Ballot back from the brink of death by reassembling her entire body with reinforced synthetic fiber. When she finally wakes up, her confused mental state eventually turns toward revenge as Shell is revealed as her killer.
