The dub is being directed by Zach Bolton. The cast includes:

Funimation describes the story:

Border 1: Ghost Pain

Set against a backdrop of international arms dealers, exploding cyborgs, and murdered prostitutes, this origins story plays out with a futuristic flair for the destructive. When cyborg hacker Motoko Kusanagi is hired to investigate a devastating bombing, she must fight her way through a maze of phantom memories to unlock her mysterious past – and track down the evil mastermind behind the attacks.

Border 2: Ghost Whispers

Witness the formation of the legendary Public Security Section 9. When a clandestine organization hacks every car in the city, Kusanagi recruits a lethal team of cyber operatives that includes a badass brawler with Special Forces training, an explosives expert, a technology specialist, and a chain-smoking jack-of-all-trades with a sordid past. Together this ruthless gang of enforcers sets out to clamp down on the chaos and make the city safe again.

Funimation licensed the four-part anime and released the first episode in a special imported edition last August. The company plans to screen the first two episodes in a limited theatrical run later this year. The fourth episode will run in select theaters in Japan for two weeks beginning on September 6.

The first two episodes will be available on home video in North America on October 21.
