Hot on the heels of the news that TOHO has acquired anime studio Science SARU, the latter has officially been attached to a new Ghost in the Shell anime. The TV series is currently eyeing a 2026 premiere, and while information is light at the moment, you can see the teaser video and visual below.

Kodansha USA publishes the Ghost in the Shell manga by Shirow Masamune and describes it like so:

Deep into the twenty-first century, the line between man and machine has been inexorably blurred as humans rely on the enhancement of mechanical implants and robots are upgraded with human tissue. In this rapidly converging landscape, cyborg superagent Major Motoko Kusanagi is charged to track down the craftiest and most dangerous terrorists and cybercriminals, including “ghost hackers” who are capable of exploiting the human/machine interfance and reprogramming humans to become puppets to carry out the hackers’ criminal ends. When Major Kusanagi tracks the cybertrail of one such master hacker, the Puppeteer, her quest leads her into a world beyond information and technology where the very nature of consciousness and the human soul are turned upside down.
