“For me, Motoko Kusanagi is first and foremost someone who doesn’t take crap from anybody.” – Atsuko Tanaka 

There is a staggering amount of insightful content, choosing some highlights has been incredibly difficult, but the following are a great place to start. The interview with director, Kenji Kamiyama, jumps into Ghost in the Shell’s politics (Season 2 Disc 3), there’s a wonderful interview with legendary composer, Yoko Kanno (Season 1 Disc 3), then there’s a chat with the mechanical designers (Season 1 Disc 4), and Kenji Kamiyama, is joined by Motoko and Batou’s voice talent: Atsuko Tanaka and Akio Ohtsuka to discuss the feelings and emotions behind their characters (Season 2 Disc 4). Every extra included has something a Ghost in the Shell fan wouldn’t want to miss.

“Batou’s an incredibly complicated character. You’d never guess that he was an animated character.” – Akio Ohtsuka
