Solid State Society


As if a collective prayer was answered I just found out that Production I.G has announced a new chapter in the GITS saga – Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex – Solid State Society. The last two series have been pure genius and could even have been said to improve on themselves so I have high hopes for the next incarnation.

After the spectacular ending of the 2nd Gig who knows where it will go next!

UPDATE (23/03):

Production I.G has revealed in a stock disclosure that the upcoming Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex Solid State Society will be a 100 minute movie released in summer 2006. Anime News Network reports the movie is being produced in Hi-Vision, a format used by Japanese broadcast networks to support wide-screen televisions. The same production team, including main staff, will be carried over from the TV series. It takes place two years after the refugee riot incident. A significantly larger Section 9, with over 20 new officers, investigates terrorist actions related to a wizard-like hacker “Kugutsu Mawashi.”

    Hi, yeah, I've seen the trailer but it doesn't give much away so I'm not really sure whats going on… Going on the ending to the second season I'd say Motoko has a lot to get her head around!

    I think she's the “puppet master” lady, one the concept art of that lady, it says sp_mot04, but there was a motoko that looked like motoko, and it was called sp_mot01. Batou was called sp_bat02 or whatever. I think the major went evil
