Pazzy Entertainment and living Japanese national treasure Ichibei Iwano are back with a second round of traditional ukiyo-e prints with art from Ghost in the Shell, this time from the franchise's newest film.

The "24-hour Cherry Blossom Stakeout" is available for pre-orders at the OtakuWorks Shop. The image is based on a scene from this year's Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie and was drawn by chief director Kazuchika Kise. It was then carved and printed using traditional ukiyo-e woodblocking techniques by craftsmen Kazuo Watanabe and Hideo Yoshida on tetsuki-hōshō-washi (Japanese hand-made paper) made by Ichibei Iwano. Kise will sign each of the limited 300 prints.

A print costs US$370 plus shipping and measures 230mm wide by 340mm high (9in x 13.3in). The prints are expected to ship between April and June 2016.

Pazzy Entertainment opened pre-orders for the first series of prints featuring artwork from the first Ghost in the Shell film and those prints are expected to ship between December and January.
