In Summary:
A visual and technical masterpiece that will certainly show off just how far anime has come since its predecessor, Ghost in the Shell: Innocence unfortunately is a very formulaic story that's so highly infused with religious and philosophical discourses that they seemingly forgot to put in dialogue for much of the plot. While the US DVD release was probably one of the best looking anime releases out for that format, the film reaches a whole new level here. Its animation style and approach is quite different from that of Brave Story that we saw recently but this one again shows that anime can look amazing here. Buena Vista Japan did a solid job with the presentation of this film and has provided materials from a multi-disc DVD edition on a single dual-layered disc that is quite simply the reference version of this film.

Awesome! I just wish it wasn't $70 bucks. Not sure I can wait for a domestic release though. Who knows when that'll happen

Just got my copy in today! It is amazing! Innocence is worth every bit of $78 (S&H included). I would pay $100 for this if I had to!

Cool, hopefully the corrected version has non-SDH English subtitles. I used to have the DVD way back when.

Would be cool if it had a pitch-corrected version of the Manga UK dub, though probably not.

Watched it recently on DVD, it had been nearly 9 years since I had seen it last. Eh. Laughing Man series is actually better than this one, and nothing, NOTHING tops the original GitS. It is definitive. Anime would not exist in the West without Major Kusanagi. But for the collector, I can see why you'd want Innocence as well.

Innocence is a highly acquired taste. We're talking Tarkovsky levels of artyness here.

For the record, I personally liked Innocence better than the 1st GITS on initial viewings of both.

Is this blu going to have both English audio tracks, or just one of them? I think the one I preferred was the one with Batou's deeper voice, but it's been so long since I last watched it. Either way it's a nice film (I picked up the steelbook dvd last go around), but I have to reign in my spending until my tax return comes.

I don't know the answer but I would bet large sums of money it's the same exact disc as last time, so you can just read the review it's likely the same.

Despite being stylistically different from the first GITS anime movie, Innocence is a pretty solid follow-up in its own right.

Hoping I can find a copy in-store somewhere next week.

I don't believe it is; the original Bandai release featured lossy audio. The new Funimation release features a pair of lossless tracks.

There are two of them? My DVD has no English audio tracks. None!

I think I got it from Right Stuf maybe five or six years ago... Batou's VA had something to do with producing the one, hence why he prefers it and Batou has a voice two steps away from Darth Vader. The other dub is the exact same cast for the main characters, just slightly different dialogue and Batou sounds like he did in the first movie.
