Trivia: Ghost in the Shell: Arise

  • Executive Meddling: While FUNimation was under no obligation to listen to the fandom's wishes to see the English dub have the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex voice actors reprise their roles, the decision to completely replace the cast in order to follow what Japan had done for their version was pretty much an order from Production I.G directly. That said, Mary Elizabeth McGlynn was still cast as major character Kurutsu.
  • The Other Darrin: The entire voice cast of Section 9 was replaced. For the dub, Production I.G insisted that Funimation do it, despite what the fans wanted.
