Most likely it is licensed.

It hasn't been announced as licensed yet, but you can expect that Bandai will get it since they also have the first series.

If only they'd start releasing the DVD's.

It is licensed and was previously announced as part of the first season. "An additional 26 episodes of GITS:SAC bringing the total to 52".

Most "respectable" groups steer clear of licensed material plus Bandai has sent cease and desist letters to fansubbers before for subbing GITS - SAC too so it's somewhat doubtful that any of the well-known groups will pick it up.

I wonder when the GITS - SAC DVDs will actually come out, all I see are *hugely* overpriced japanese ones (as in like 60 dollars for 2 episodes, seesh)

I understand from someone in Ani-Kraze that Bandai has licensed this show. When Bandai told them to cease and desist subbing the first season they gave them a phone number to contact their offices. They called up Bandai and asked if they would be stopped from subbing the second season. Bandai told them it was licensed and not to sub it.

I don't know about this sure fire $$$$ thing. To many this show is too complex and not enough action, hence boring. Something that do well in movie form may not do well for a TV series.

Boring to you and all the "action lovers" out there. Some people like their entertainment to be more thoughtful. SAC isn't like Oshii's film at all, it's much closer to the spirit of the manga.

But I do agree that the market for the type of show that SAC is is smaller, although I'm sure it will be marketed as a "cyber-action tour de force".

"cyber-action tour de force"... haha, I can see it now.

Anyway, while SAC is closer to the manga than the movie, I still feel it's not all that close.

Yes GITS:SAC has already been licensed. Bandai announced the license sometime last year. The dvd release for it should be around the summer.

Gts : Sac Dvd

I was wondering if some one could help me. For the most part, I normaly rely on sun coast to pick up my anime DVD releases. Yet it seems the one here does not have / cannot order Ghost in the shell stand alone complex.

I know it is in DVD form, yet I have not seen it in the US through a vendor I trust. (even checking vendors listed in the sticky here) does any one know if this is leagly avalible in the US? looking through google the only place I could find a box set from was "Link removed as bootleg (apearently bad one at that )" I am wondering if any one knows this site and if it is reputable, or another site that would carry a leagle US release of this first season. any help would be appriciated.

With the 2nd season comming out I finaly decided to get my @#$% in gear, stop waiting and get this series on DVD.

Bandai hasn't released GITS:SAC on dvd yet. Expect it around the summer or late spring. Also that site you listed is a bootleg site.

DO NOT get it from discountanimedvd. I got the boxset from there and it is HORRIBLE, ABSOLUTE CRAP! They wouldn't even put in my true review of there dvd crap and instead kept ones were people gave 4 and 5 ratings. Don't get me wrong the quality is good. But the timing is off ALOT, and the trans is horrible and goes into other peoples lines, also they mispell alot and screw up grammar ALOT also. For the love of god please take my advice and don't buy it, I just saved you 40 bucks trust me. Just wait for it to be released here.

Do not ask for licensed anime or manga
As described in Fansubbing and Licensing fansubs are technically illegal as they breach copyright. However as AnimeSuki.com does not wish to be associated with piracy, discussions about unlawfully getting licensed anime or manga or even DVD rips are not allowed. This means it is not allowed to post links to sites with such licensed material or ways to obtain it illegally, or ask for links or instructions to be emailed or PM'ed to you. Threads which break this rule will be either closed or simply deleted.

Not a good start.

ok thanks for the information. although I am impatient. any one know if the R2 release on DVD (I know it is, I saw it in an video store in tokyo) has english sub title track?

yes I am impatient and do not like to wait years.


I don't know if I would actualy call this pirating squirl. I can see one thing if people are pirateing somthing they can buy, yet in this case I will admit it is licensend in the US, but we cannot get it through any other means. . . which is basicly the premis that anime suki is based on. normaly it is the only source for these anime shows in the US (and other regions), untill it is licensed and distributed in the US+. this series has been licenses before it aired in oct 2002, and still has no US distrobution.

normaly it sucks having to wait for distrobution, but 2 years is a bit much; and no one seems to know when it will be reased in the US. although it seems it will air on cartoon network first (dubbed of course ). I can understand your unwillingness to be associated with pirates, but how is it your draw the line only at what is licensed even if not distributed?

The GITS SAC region-2 DVDs carry no subtitles (like most R2s).
