posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Kodansha Comics announced at Comic Con International in San Diego on Saturday that it will release a deluxe edition of Masamune Shirow's Ghost in the Shell, Ghost in the Shell 1.5, and Ghost in the Shell 2 manga in 2017, coinciding with the release of the Ghost in the Shell live-action film, which opens on March 31, 2017.
Kodansha Comics' new release will mark the first time that an English release of the series will feature right-to-left reading format, uncut with the original Japanese sound effects.
Dark Horse Comics released Ghost in the Shell 2 in English under the title Ghost in the Shell 2: Man-Machine Interface in 2005, and Kodansha Comics then released the manga in 2010.
