Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG Vol.1 in January
Manga have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG - Volume 1 for 23rd January 2006 priced at £19.99. Following hard on the heels of the worldwide smash hit anime series Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex (voted Best Anime Series of 2005 by readers of Neo Magazine) comes a brand new series of Masamune Shirow's ground-breaking cyberpunk thriller, Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG, this time based on a story concept by Mamoru Oshii, director of the critically acclaimed feature film Ghost In The Shell 2: Innocence.
The first of a seven-volume series, Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG - Volume 1 is released as a deluxe double disc DVD specially packaged in a collectible slipcase in January 2006 and picks up where the first series left off, with the surviving members of Section 9 reunited but under a government enforced Indefinite Standby Order that effectively renders them inoperable.
This two-disc set includes episodes 1 to 4 repeated across both discs in anamorphic widescreen. Disc one offers English and Japanese language tracks in Dolby Digital 2.0 and 5.1, while disc two offers English and Japanese language tracks in Dolby Digital 2.0 and DTS 5.1 audio. Optional English subtitles are of course present.
Bonus features include interviews with Kenji Kamiyama (Chief Writer/Director), Yusuke Takeda (Art Director) and Hiroshi Kato (Conceptual Artist).
