Now On iTunes: ‘Ghost In the Shell’ (1995)

Ahead of its real-life remake set to star Scarlett Johansson as main character – Major, Ghost In the Shellthe original 1995 cult Japanese animation written by Kazunori Itō and directed by Mamoru Oshii– is this month seeing its digital iTunes debut.

Describing the classic anime title as a “landmark” in helping to demonstrate that so-called cartoons didn’t necessarily have to be for children, Apple highlights that Ghost In the Shell features a “rich plot” with complex themes about the increasing presence of machines in daily life …

The year is 2029, the world is made borderless by the net; augmented humans who live in virtual environments. Watched over by law enforcement agents that are able to download themselves into super-powered, crime busting mecha.

The ultimate secret agent of the future is not human, has no physical body and can travel freely through the information highways of the world. Hacking and manipulating whatever, whomever and whenever required.

The long-awaited availability of the animation’s digital edition arrives just as its modern remake’s official soundtrack: Ghost In the Shell: Music Inspired by the Motion Picture is also getting its iTunes pre-order release this weekend, with at least three of the recording’s tracks already avaialble to stream on Apple Music.
