ANIME EXTRA: GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE
With Anime Extra we continue to shine a light on beloved and lesser-known anime from Japan. After the succes of the first Ghost In The Shell (in our Panorama: A Journey Into The World Beyond) the sequel kept popping up on our suggestions board… From groundbreaking director Mamoru Oshii comes the award-winning second installment of the high-action movie series, Ghost In The Shell.
In the year 2032, advances in cybernetic technology and genetic research have opened the world to possibilities once only dreamed of. Humans can be fitted with cybernetic modifications, download their brains into permanent robot bodies, or bring home their own intimate robotic companion-it’s a life of luxury. Or so it seems. A rash of gruesome murders begins to plague the city and with every lead comes more questions. The culprits? The beloved robotic companions programmed to obey. How does a robot with such basic programming learn the deadly art of murder? Agent Batou and his partner, Togusa, must figure it out before the problem spreads.
