According to various nets and the Wikipedia page, Ghost in the Shell: Arise "is scheduled for limited cinematic release in Japan on June 22, 2013."

What I'd like to know is, when its release in the United States will be?

Border 1--the first of four episodes in the ARISE series--is available at Mitsuwa Japanese Grocery in Santa Monica. It's $9.99. Border 2 will be coming out November 30, 2013 in Japan, but I'm not sure how it will be finding itself into the United States' market after this date.

    In case you want to import it... the Arise Bluray will have English subtitles. – кяαzєя Jul 2 '13 at 20:34

    Where can you get Logicoma action figures in the United States? Please ask that as a seperate question ;) – looper Nov 27 '13 at 6:15

Ghost in the Shell: Arise is not yet licensed. That means there's no release planned in the US yet.


Ghost in the Shell: Arise is now licensed by Funimation. In October 2014, the first two parts have been released on BD and DVD, while parts 3 and 4 have been released a year later. (At least) the first three parts are also available at Netflix.

  • I see, so I just asked the university library to purchase this item for their East Asian Library collection. Do you think the purchasing representative for the library will find a way to get it? Given that, according to Krazer, "the Arise Bluray will have English subtitles." – Trancot Jul 7 '13 at 22:50
  • I don't know how easy it is in your country, as I'm from Germany. But when the BDs will have subs, it shouldn't be a problem. – looper Jul 7 '13 at 23:06
  • What are "BDs"? – Trancot Jul 7 '13 at 23:44
  • If you were to buy the film that has subtitles where would you buy it? – Trancot Jul 7 '13 at 23:44
  • I know BDs as Bluray Discs :D. I would ask amazon or the local bookstore. – looper Jul 7 '13 at 23:45
