Ghost In The Shell Arise Trailer Released
Ahead of the November UK release, Manga Entertainment have posted the UK trailer for the prequel series. Longtime fans of the English version of the franchise have been upset with US dubbers Funimation for not having brought back Michael Epcar as the voice of Batou, a role he has been associated with for nearly 20 years. Whatever you might think of the new cast, the series itself looks pretty awesome, with the series brought bang-up-to-date with the latest animation techniques from the always impressive Production I.G.
