Netflix may have expunged many of its Marvel shows from its line-up of original programming, but someone at the streaming service seems intent on courting the anime crowd. Given the current state of things on Steam and the PlayStation 4, I can’t blame them for trying because the censorship crusaders are going all in on anime and gaming like Tumblr furries going all in on an altar boy sleepover as if they were at some sort of pedophile buffet.
Netflix’s latest endeavor is centered around reviving Ghost In The Shell as Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2045. The announcement came via a tweet, which revealed that Shinji Aramaki – famous for working on a number of 3D movies such as Starship Troopers: Invasion, Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Appleseed Alpha and the upcoming Ultraman and Blade Runner projects at Netflix – would be directing the new anime. Co-directing alongside him would be Stand Alone Complex’s and Eden of East director, Kenji Kamiyama.
YES, A NEW GHOST IN THE SHELL ANIME IS COMING.
Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 will be directed by Appleseed’s Shinji Aramaki and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex’s Kenji Kamiyama. On @Netflix in 2020!

We don’t get much in the way of story details from the single tweet and some of the Left-leaning websites are already talking about “whitewashing” even though you can’t “whitewash” anime characters in an anime. But what do you expect from people who don’t actually watch anime?
Anyway, it seems unlikely that this project will be a long-running series given that both Kamiyama and Aramaki are also working on Ultraman and Blade Runner – Black Lotus as well. The other two series are also planning on having multiple episodes, so I doubt that Kamiyama and Aramaki will be dual-directing three series for Netflix all at once.
Then again, maybe Netflix is running a Japanese sweatshop for anime, who knows?
We’ll have to wait for more details on the project as it moves closer toward production, but expect the woke brigade to start picking it apart even before anything substantial is revealed about it.
