New Masamune Shirow anime

Published On March 21, 2009 | By Joe Gordon | Animation, Film TV & Theatre

Anime News Network reports that Masamune Shirow (Appleseed, the excellent Ghost in the Shell) has announced a new film, Squad, at the Tokyo International Anime Fair. There’s not a lot of information on the actual story,other than the tagline “A battle for the front mission — I’ll cover your back”, but with Shirow I think we can hazard a guess that it will not involve fluffy bunnies and enchanted forests and is more likely to involve some form of tech-heavy dystopian future.(via ICV2)
