A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD FOR MAMORU OSHII
A towering and truly unique figure in Japanese animation, director Mamoru Oshii will be a recipient of Fantasia's Lifetime Achievement Award. From pioneering OVAs DALLOS and the haunting ANGEL'S EGG, and of course the beloved PATLABOR series, of the 1980s, through the dramatically influential global hit GHOST IN THE SHELL in the mid-'90s, to its award-winning sequel and other powerful, pensive works in the new millennium (SKY CRAWLERS, AVALON), Oshii has consistently strived to bring new ideas and in fact a whole new attitude to anime. With his meticulous and idiosyncratic near-future thrillers and dramas, linked by persistent themes, motifs and concerns, Oshii asserts a complex, deeply thoughtful and decidedly adult sensibility — while maintaining the highest technical standards in the field (and hardly confining his efforts to animation). In seeking a path to call his own, Oshii has blazed a trail for fantastic entertainment worldwide to follow.

Mamoru Oshii will be receiving his award on our opening night, July 17, before a special screening of the new HD master of GHOST IN THE SHELL, being re-issued by Manga Entertainment and Anchor Bay Entertainment in celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the original manga's publication. This will be the first time the GITS HD print has been made available outside of Japan, lovingly restored, unadulterated and awe-inspiring in its beauty.



EDIT: this will be the first anime release from Manga Ent/Anchor Bay Ent since First Squad and Redline (that was back in January 17, 2012).

Wait is this the original and not that awful GITS 2.0 with the added CG? If it is...hurray! I was going to import the Japanese version this year. Now all they have to do is release SAC on BD here.

Yes, this is a HD remaster off the original and not GitS 2.0.

This is great news!

I have the R1 SE and the Japanese BD/DVD combo from 2009, the one with a great DVD but with a lackluster HD transfer on the BD.

I'll gladly pay full price and support this new release if it's a quality HD remaster, even with no extras.

Just what this movie needs another re-rerelease to confuse new fans on which to buy. Laughing

I've been holding off on buying the import in hopes that this would get released over here. Would like a special edition, but oh well.

And will Anchor Bay/Manga have fixed the audio issues and the poor subtitles or are they just stamping out the same thing except with the UK steel book packaging?
