Manga UK has been on a roll with impressive steelbook releases of some of the classic anime. They’ve put together AKIRA and Ninja Scroll steelbook releases and the next one on the hit list is Ghost in the Shell.
The Steelbook release comes with a 24-paged booklet that features an interview with Mamoru Oshii and a look at how the original manga evolved.
Steelbooks are popular with collectors because they’re durable but far more pleasingly tacticle than the plastic blu-ray cases. If you’re buying a disc, rather than streaming, then you’re probably looking to collect. If that’s the case then a few extra quid on a limited edition makes a lot of sense. Manga UK know their audience with this one.
Zavvi have the worldwide exclusive on the Steelbook. You can pre-order now and the release date is currently set of 29th September, this year.
