    I have both on dvd already. It begs the question why now? I understand a bluray release if the tv series hasn't been hdified yet but why the dvds? Is this a remaster?

    or was it a case that it was out of print for x number of years and they just did a new transfer from the masters??

    No idea as to the reason behind the dvd release. Maybe the old one's gone out of print.

    Well the rate studios in the entertainment business get bought and resold and dissolved the issue of rights and back catalogs could be tricky. Perhaps it is a reissue.

    They always have cgi cars in GITS. They always suck ass. The robots/mechs/military vehicles look better and the blend isnt too jarring. But yeah, cars are shit fam.

    Full cgi would be poor choice. Only recent anime that looked good in was Gantz-O and that was mostly due to how goofy the concept and tone was in first place.

    Blend is best! I forgot that one of the sacs had a cgi major in the opening right?

    He's been the character designer for an anime film called Birthday Wonderland. That's about it, mainstream wise. He's done commendable work on game character designs, illustrations and all that kinda stuff. Got himself published his own book as well called Momentary which showcases some beautiful artwork. But anime wise, he's new to the game. But an absolute talent in terms of character designing.


    Here's a video reviewing his artbook Momentary:
