Trivia / Ghost in the Shell

  • Distributor Hop: Innocence had no less than three. The film in sub format was first acquired by Dreamworks, than later acquired by Paramount following the former's purchase of the latter. Then it was later re-released in a dubbed version by Bandai, that was recently re-released by Funimation.
  • Technology Marches On: While most of the original manga has aged surprisingly well, there are a few bits besides the Soviet Union still existing that remind you this was made in the late 80s/early 90s. The Etorufu storyline features records of illegal real estate deals being stored on half a dozen big ol' CD ROM disks; non-wireless connections are made using thick, industrial-looking cables and a lot of the computer equipment is big, boxy and covered in dials, switches and oscillographic displays.
