As the pioneer of anime in the UK, Manga has always strived to offer fans the cutting edge of Japanese animation. Now with the growth of anime into mainstream entertainment Manga are once again at the forefront of this rapidly growing industry.
1995’s Ghost in the Shell broke the mould in the UK and US with its pre-The Matrix evocative visuals and breathtaking sci-fi noir stunning theatrical audiences of the time. Now Manga UK is proud to announce that they will release the highly anticipated sequel Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence in 2005 for UK/Eire theatrical release.
2006 will then not only see the release of a UK exclusive DVD release of the film but also the Mamoru Oshi directed debut of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: 2nd GiG TV series on DVD. With continued sales of the original Ghost in the Shell film and constantly growing sales of the current Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex series these latest acquisitions of critically acclaimed anime will excite fans and mainstream audiences alike as the genre continues to grow.
