While FUNimation is gearing up to release the first two parts of the four part series on bilingual DVD and Blu-ray in North America, the final chapter of Ghost in the Shell: Arise is preparing to roll out its final installment. Set for a limited theatrical engagement on September 6th, 2014, the first trailer has arrived for the episode and it clocks in at just over a minute. It’s light on Motoko, but it once again sells itself on the visuals and atmosphere.
Plot concept: In this highly anticipated prequel set in the year after the fourth World War, cyborg and hacker Motoko Kusanagi finds herself wrapped up in the investigation of a devastating bombing. But she’s not the only one looking for answers—as she delves deeper into the mystery of who is behind the attack, a specialized team unlike any before begins to take shape.
