Manga and Bandai to release
Chicago, IL – Manga Entertainment and Bandai Entertainment to release one of the most influential Japanese animated TV series "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex" on UMD format for viewing on the Portable Sony Play Station player. Volume One will be released on November 22, 2005 and distributed to all retail outlets nationwide by Anchor Bay Entertainment.
"Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex," originates from the wildly popular manga by Shirow Masamune, combining action, adventure, political intrigue and ethics into a masterfully told sci-fi futuristic anime series.
Produced by such anime powerhouses as Production I.G. (Kill Bill) and Director Kenji Kamiyama (Blood: The Last Vampire, Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade), the series follows female cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi and her fellow police officers of Section 9 as they hunt down a host of criminals in both the real and online worlds.

I read UMD production is going to stop because it isn't profitable.
