There are no supplements on Disc One. Disc Two includes a 27-minute Production Report featurette, a 30-minute Digital Works technology highlight (subtitled in English), seven textual character biographies, biographies of creator Shirow Masamune and director Mamoru Oshii, and six-minutes worth of Ghost In The Shell trailers. Additional extras include trailers for other Manga titles, a Manga DVD catalogue, and Web links.
Based on a series of comic books by Masamune Shirow, Ghost In The Shell tells the story of a world caught in the grip of information overload
As with the previously released DVD, this new anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD looks great. While colors can be vibrant, much of the time hues appear understated. The animation has a moody appearance, that can give the illusion of atmosphere (like blurred underwater vision or haze under an interrogation lamp). Some shimmering details are noticed at times, and the animation can have a slightly veiled appearance at times. (Suanne Hodges)
With eight audio options available, this special edition version is sure to impress. Of those eight, two are Dolby
I originally subscribed to your magazine because I am a home theatre junkie, and it gave me one more way to feed my addiction. However, I find the one thing that I really enjoy is full access to your subscriber Web Site. I'm on it every day looking up a DVD review or reading an up-to-the minute article on what's going on in the world of home theatre. It's first on my favorites list.
