Last month, Netflix announced a slew of anime series coming to the platform such as Ultraman, a Devil May Cry adaptation, and many more. Now, another beloved anime is getting the Netflix treatment, and it is Ghost in the Shell.
Netflix recently announced that a new Ghost in the Shell anime is in the works, and it’s entitled Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045. While not much has been announced about the series, we did get a visual featuring what seems to be the Major herself, Motoko Kusanagi:
