A New ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Anime is Coming to Netflix in 2020

While the rest of Hollywood is scrambling to adapt as many anime into live-action movies as possible, Netflix is starting to go the opposite route. Sure, they have to answer for that Death Note adaptation and possibly the upcoming live-action Cowboy Bebop series, but the streaming giant is getting some points with a new Ghost in the Shell anime series. Netflix is developing a new Ghost in the Shell anime series titled Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 that is set to hit the streaming service in 2020...

He was far from the first CG director in Japan, but as one of the most prominent mechanical designers of the 1980s, his turn away from 2-D animation and toward the nascent digital world seemed a harbinger of things to come. One creator who ...

Blade Runner Getting Adapted into a New Anime Series, Produced by Cowboy Bebop Animator Shinichiro Watanabe

You may remember, in the run-up to the theatrical release of Blade Runner 2049 last October, that three short prequels appeared on the internet. Black Out 2022 (above), the most discussed installment of that miniature trilogy, stood out both aesthetically and culturally: directed by famed Japanese animator Shinichiro Watanabe, it expanded the reality of Blade Runner through a form that has drawn so much from that universe over the previous 35 years. "I just want an animated bladerunner s...

Ancien and the Magic Tablet

I mentioned last year really wanting to see the movie Hirune Hime (seems that the official English title is now Ancien and the Magic Tablet), and here’s a review of the film over at Time Out Tokyo.
