In the year 2029, the world has become interconnected by a vast electronic network that permeates every aspect of life. That same network also becomes a battlefield for Tokyo's Section Nine security force, which has been charged with apprehending the master hacker known only as the Puppet Master. Spearheading the investigation is Major Motoko Kusanagi, who -- like many in her department -- is a cyborg officer, far more powerful than her human appearance would suggest. And yet as the Puppet Master, who is even capable of hacking human minds, leaves a trail of victims robbed of their memories, Kusanagi ponders the very nature of her existence: is she purely an artificial construct, or is there more? What, exactly, is the "ghost" -- her essence -- in her cybernetic "shell"? When Section Six gets involved in the case, she is forced to confront the fact that there is more here than meets the eye, and that the Puppet Master may hold some of the answers she seeks. But little does she know that he has been seeking her as well.~Emru Townsend

Ghost in the Shell [25th Anniversary] [Blu-ray] 
Super rad packaging for the 25th anniversary celebration of one of the best sci-fi films of all times. An additional plus with it being the film’s 4K debut release.
The artwork design and final product execution are perfect! Definitely something I’ll have on display for awhile.
My only gripe, the “DISK MADE IN MEXICO” sticker is just slapped on right in the middle of the outer sleeve! Why go through all that amazingly perfect design and execution to RUIN it with a stupid sticker telling me where the disks were made?!! That really “grinds my gears!”
This was my first time seeing this. Although it was fun to watch, I prefer the Scarlet Johansson one. As far as the 4K picture quality, I wasn’t impressed. Colors pop here and there, but overall the image of the animation is flat and soft, with some decent grain. The SteelBook is the only thing saving me from regretting this purchase.
