posted on by Karen Ressler
This year's seventh issue of Kodansha's Monthly Young Magazine published the final chapter of the Ghost in the Shell Arise manga adaptation, Ghost in the Shell Arise ~Nemuranai Me no Otoko: Sleepless Eye~, on Monday. The seventh and final compiled volume of the manga will ship on August 5.
The manga debuted in March 2013. Newcomer Takumi Ōyama drew the series, and Jun'ichi Fujisaku wrote the story. Fujisaku previously worked on the screenplay for both seasons of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. The magazine asked readers to await the creators' next works.
The Ghost in the Shell Arise anime, which consists of four 50-minute parts, premiered in Japanese theaters between June 2013 and August 2014. A television broadcast of the four OVAs with two extra episodes premiered in Japan in April 2015 under the title Ghost in the Shell: Arise Alternative Architecture. FUNimation Entertainment licensed all four OVA episodes, and streamed Ghost in the Shell: Arise Alternative Architecture as it aired in Japan.
