Starting with the 2001 DVD the 5.1 remix of the original Japanese language version contained several alterations to the music throughout and replaced some of the sound effects. The 2009 Hypersonic remix created for the first Blu-ray release is taken from the same 2001 remix except contains even more changes to the music and sound effects. However, only the original 2009 Blu-ray from Bandai Visual contains the original 1988 stereo mix as a secondary option. All of the re-releases from Funmation only include the Hypersonic remix created back in 2009. See more »
So i love it! Not the usual.
The story is complex and condensed for the sake of the movie and as such hard to understand. I recommend reading the source material first. Imagine how bad an American remake would be if they messed up Ghost In The Shell that much!!
