The February issue of Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine is announcing on Wednesday that the Ghost in the Shell Arise anime will launch in 2013. Kazuchika Kise will serve as the chief director, and Tow Ubukata is supervising and writing the series scripts.

According to IEEE802.11, Monthly Young Magazine also revealed Cornelius as the composer. Director Kenji Kamiyama confirmed that he is not involved in the new project.

Production I.G has launched an official website for the new anime, as well as Twitter and Facebook accounts. Production I.G has also released a full image of the main character Motoko Kusanagi.

The website confirms the staff information, and announces that a "Ghost in the Shell Arise Production Presentation" will be streamed live worldwide on February 12 at 9:00 p.m. in Japan (7:00 a.m. EST) on Niconico, Bandai Channel, and YouTube. The event itself will be held at the nicofarre event hall in Tokyo.

I don't know. Not the same music, not the same director... is this just another cash grab?

if yoko kanno doesn't do the music I probably won't give it a try.

Motoko's new look....nhft.

Doesn't even look like how she looks in the manga at all. Are they going to say she decided to go for a new look/body......I'm not feeling it at all.

I'll give it a go out of curiosity, but I don't think I like the new look for Kusanagi. It's probably the hair that's throwing me off.
