Not the kind that would scare Scooby

The live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell is almost ready to break through that window to shoot some murderous robo Geishas, but not many know about that this franchise has been around for a long time all starting from a manga that was first published in April 1989. Since then, there has been plenty of books, TV shows, video games, and movies based on the work by Masamune Shirow.

Many have been calling this movie as the "New Matrix" film of the decade without knowing that the 1995 Ghost in the Shell film was one of the major (yes, pun intended) influence for the themes and ideas for the Matrix franchise. So let's educate some fools with this video from cybersace and take a quick look at the Ghost in the Shell franchise with some interesting pieces of information in this video from DistractotronChannel. Enjoy!
