Story
2061 AD. Fifty years have passed since mankind developed the Network society. It was anticipated that this new infrastructure would realize a utopia where people connected with each other at the level of consciousness. However, new social problems such as personal data leaks and proliferation of manipulated information began to surface. Nevertheless, people still relied on the Network to exchange information, and proved unable to opt to abandon it.

In due course, a new Network realm with more effective security measures was developed. This was called Meta Real Network, usually abbreviated as "the Metal."

The Metal accommodated personal memory data within protected virtual stand-alone organic cyber enclaves called bubble shells and eventually pervaded the everyday lives of people.

However, people gradually learned to release and explode their instincts within the secure environment of the Metal. The unleashed instincts pushed each individual's consciousness to drown in the sea of information and to be exposed to the pressures of desire. Meanwhile, norms and regulations continued to bind their real world lives. Thus, strange friction between the two worlds began to manifest themselves as aberrations beyond the bounds of the imaginable.
Experts who challenged the deep sea of the Metal to investigate and decipher such aberrations were called cyber divers.

This is a story of a cyber diver, Masamichi Haru, who investigates the incidents that lie between Reality and the Metal.

Shouldn't it be "incidents that lay..."? Whatever, at least the concept may be exploited fairly nicely by the actually good side of IG's visual studio.

Somebody please tell me Haru can also be used as a male name ... =/
Reading through the story gives me huge deja-vus. Come on Shirow break that shell already. We know you can do something other than near-future-where-man-machine-reality-counciousness-tehinterweb clashes.

Why change the formula for the sake of change? He does it well in a genre that's been unfashionable other than his stuff. His stuff fills a niche. There aren't a lot of strong female characters where they're unquestionably tough as nails bitches and there isn't a lot of cyberpunk out there.

Not for the sake of change obviously. He has been using that formula for years now, he has touched every subject from cybersecks to death. He did create a rich world so I'm guessing he can do it again.

To be honest, I don't even think these are new stories that Shirow is making. He's just pulling out old crap from years ago for IG to animate.

He even said Ghost Hound dates back to something he created more than 10 years ago.

Well if Ghost Hound is any indication, then the old stuff is great too.

Well, it's hard for me to not to have some high expectation towards this... I mean, it's scripted/created by Shirow, it's directed by Furuhashi, and it's animated by Production I.G., and it's cyberpunk. And I wish that the promo image was bigger.

Do freakin' want.

Same here, along with I'd assume many Shirow or GITS fans, hopefully with at the very least the same care and writing quality that SAC got to help create the new setting and characters. With what they were able to pull off in SAC and other recent shows I can't wait to see what they can do A/V wise. And I'd definitely enjoy another amazingly strong female lead to compliment the awesome Major.

I know what you mean, it's hard to keep my expectations in check, but I hope I can since there's still the wait

Couldn't have said it better, and I'm also with you I certainly hope the lead is another rare female character like the Major. If that's what he wants he should really just watch Ghost Hound as it has the potential to be very good and is practically on the opposite end of the scale.

Thanks for the link!

The screens within the trailer with the animation are small, but the trailer confirmed that as expected with their big staffers, this show is going to be gorgeously animated.

Man, I can't wait till April and a bunch of these new shows.
