The official website for the stereoscopic 3D theatrical release of Kenji Kamiyama's Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society movie began streaming the first of four episodes from Kamiyama's Xi Avant anime short on Saturday.
The NTT Docomo mobile telecommunications network also began streaming all four episodes of Xi Avant.
While the online streaming of Xi Avant is in 2D, theaters in Japan added a stereoscopic 3D version of the anime to screenings of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society this past weekend. The short is a tie-in with the NTT Docomo's next-generation Xi data service.
Kamiyama just established Steve N' Steven, a new consulting firm for planning and producing animation in advertising and other areas, with the ad firm Hakuhodo on April 1.
