The saga didn't stop there as Animation studio Production I.G (who produced the first Ghost in the Shell animated movie in 1995) continued with a television series Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex in 2005 telling an alternate story from the manga and first film, featuring Section 9's investigations of government corruption in the Laughing Man and Individual Eleven incidents.

2013 saw the start of the Ghost in the Shell: Arise original video animation series, consisting of four parts through mid-2014. The series was recompiled in early 2015 as a television series titled Ghost in the Shell: Arise - Alternative Architecture, airing with an additional two episodes (one part). An animated feature film produced by most of the Arise staff, titled Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie, was released on June 20, 2015.

The history of this long loved saga continues today with this latest live action installment as Ghost in the Shell starts TODAY at your local theater.
