Ghost in the Shell (video game)
Ghost in the Shell is a cyberpunk-themed third-person shooter video game developed by Exact and Production I. G for the PlayStation. A part of the larger Ghost in the Shell media franchise, it utilizes the same Japanese and English voice cast as the feature film of the same name, although the two do not share a story continuity; the game was first released in July 1997, along with an artbook and a guidebook. The game's story and art design were written and illustrated by Masamune Shirow, the author of the original manga. Ghost in the Shell's plot revolves around a recruit of Public Security Section 9 as he investigates and combats the Human Liberation Front; the player controls a Fuchikoma, a robotic fighting vehicle capable of traversing walls and ceilings. The game received positive reviews, it was praised for its graphics, animation and unusual wall-climbing mechanics, as well as living up to the name of the series. However, it received criticism for its repetitive gameplay and low difficulty.
Fifteen years after its release, Game Informer listed Ghost in the Shell as one of the best manga and anime-based games. The player controls a spider-shaped think tank robot, known as Fuchikoma, able to jump, thrust forward, strafe to the side, climb walls, hang upside-down from ceilings; the camera auto-adjusts its position when scaling walls and ceilings for easy maneuvering, automatically switches between first and third-person perspectives depending on the environment, although the player can stay in first-person view at will. The Fuchikoma is guided missiles. Both weapons have unlimited ammunition, however up to six missiles can be launched at once after a charge time. Grenades can be found throughout missions and a maximum of three can be carried at a time. Enemies vary from humanoid robots to helicopters and sport an array of explosives; some stages of the game are governed by a time limit. Seventeen cutscenes can be unlocked throughout the missions and depending on the player's score in training mode.
Once unlocked, the cutscenes can be reviewed on the options menu. The training mode contains six stages to learn the basic game elements; the first five stages introduce the player to targets in various settings and using the controls with the sixth being a battle against another Fuchikoma. The twelve missions that compose the story take place in different environments, including a warehouse complex, a sewer, the city highways, the enemy base inside of a skyscraper; the missions display a variety of gameplay objectives: the first mission is a raid. The plot follows the members of Public Security Section 9 consisting of Major Motoko Kusanagi, Chief Aramaki, Togusa, Saito, a nameless male, the Rookie, controlled by the player; the game's story is told using animated cutscenes. After the terrorist organization known as the Human Liberation Front claims responsibility for blowing up the Megatech Body Corporation building, Section 9 is sent to resolve the situation. Section 9 is able to find their location in the bay area.
Chief Aramaki announces that the leader of the Human Liberation Front is a mercenary known as Zebra 27. Ishikawa reports that the Energy Ministry is interested in files relating to Zebra; the Rookie's skill is put to the test, surviving an ambush. The Human Liberation Front's secret base is discovered in Aeropolis II tower by following the enemy supply line, along with the terrorists' intentions of using a nuclear reactor. Ishikawa informs Aramaki that an official of the Energy Ministry named Sawamura has been in contact with Zebra and is connected to Megatech Body Corporation. While conducting the raid on the enemy's base, the reactor begins to overload. In order to shut it down, squad leader Motoko Kusanagi attempts to remove the protective barrier from an access point nearby, as the rest of the team search for the other building's control room. After disarming the reactor, Kusanagi locates the leader on top of the tower. Batou and Togusa encounter obstacles that prevent them from moving to the top, leaving the Rookie as the only available member.
Once he reaches the top, he engages the leader in combat and defeats him in a free fall battle off of the tower. After the mission, it is revealed that Sawamura planned to collect bribes from Megatech in exchange for covering up a defect in the nuclear reactor, going to explode, presenting it as a terrorist attack. Kusanagi declares the entire experience as at least good training for the Rookie and acknowledges the Rookie's cleverness, but criticizes the overdependence on the Fuchikoma; the concept for the Fuchikoma came from one climactic scene of the film: the battle between Motoko Kusanagi and the big spider-like tank in the museum of paleontology. Based on this tank design, mecha creators Shōji Kawamori and Atsushi Takeuchi made a smaller version, designed for one person, that would be used by the police. Thus, the player becomes the pilot of one of these combat machines; the game was in development for one and a half years, involved the work of several divisions, being Kenji Sawaguchi and Tetsuji Yamamoto the total director and
Napping Princess: The Story of the Unknown Me is a 2017 Japanese animated fantasy adventure film. It was produced by Signal. MD, written and directed by Kenji Kamiyama, stars Mitsuki Takahata, it was released in Japan by Warner Bros. Pictures Japan on March 18, 2017. An English dubbed version was released in the United Kingdom on August 16, 2017, in the United States a month later. Napping Princess takes place in two concurrent settings: a near-future Japan, Heartland, a fantastical realm; the main character, Kokone Morikawa, has strange dreams of Heartland. In these dreams, Heartland is a society revolving around cars, his daughter, has a "magic tablet" computer she uses to give life to various machines: notably, a blue toy bear named Joy, a motorcycle named Heart. The king disapproves of this and orders Ancien confined to her tower. Additionally, the society of Heartland is under threat from a gigantic monster of molten metal called the Colossus; the king builds giant robots to face the Colossus.
Ancien, spying a motorcycle-driving subject of the king's named Peach, decides to ally with him and seek to defeat the Colossus together with him, while the king's chief adviser Bewan plots against the king and Ancien alike. In normal Japan, Kokone is finishing up her school term, considering where to go to college, reconnecting with old friend Morio who has returned from Tokyo from his first year in college. Kokone lives with her single father Momotarō. Momotarō is an eccentric car mechanic and has a jacket similar to Peach's, a blue bear doll, a motorcycle, a cracked tablet, all similar to the ones seen in Kokone's dreams; the situation takes a turn for the worse when Momotarō is unceremoniously arrested three days prior to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and accused of stealing the car company Shijima Motors' secrets. A suited figure who looks identical to the Heartland king's evil adviser visits the Morikawa home, is overheard to be searching for both the tablet and Kokone. Via text message from jail, Momotarō warns his daughter not to trust the adviser, named Watanabe.
The message includes a picture of a younger Momotarō, his wife, Watanabe. With Morio's help, Kokone evades Watanabe and his men and recovers the stolen tablet and bear doll, driving away in the family's motorcycle, they discover a business card for Isshin Shijima, the chairman of Shijima Motors, consider visiting him for help after Kokone is told that her mother, was the daughter of the Chairman. The two take a nap in the motorcycle, visit Heartland where they dream of the motorcycle soaring through the sky, are surprised to find on waking up that the motorcycle has driven itself to Osaka overnight before running out of gas. Kokone's attempts to contact her father via the tablet fail, but enough, the "magic" seems to work in the real world when a request to the tablet's e-Heart chat for train tickets results in an attendant giving them paid-for Shinkansen tickets to Tokyo. There, Kokone seeks an audience with the Chairman, while Morio learns that mechanics from Shijima Motors were the ones who saw Kokone's message and had bought the tickets for the pair.
The mechanics explain that after the chairman's daughter had a falling out with her father and eloped with Momotarō, they used this chat to keep in contact with Momotarō, continuing his wife's self-driving car programming and research. Ikumi had run a project researching self-driving car technology years ago, but Ikumi's father, as chairman, refused her proposal at the time. Kokone has a final dream of Ancien and Peach's adventures, but unlike earlier dreams, Kokone appears as a separate bystander rather than as Ancien. Ancien seeks to empower one of the giant robots with her magic tablet over the objections of the captain. While the empowered robot engages with the Colossus, the captain turns off the engines. Ancien frantically falls off the robot. Peach keeps her in his grip. Appearing now as Ikumi, she swears to help out Peach one last time falls to her death and cracks the tablet's glass. Kokone understands that the bedtime stories she was told as a young girl of "Ancien and the Magic Tablet" by her father that she has been dreaming of were stories of her mother.
Now, Shijima Motors has changed course and wants to use the once ignored technology to impress the world during the Olympics with self-driving cars, hence Watanabe's frantic hunt for the tablet. Kokone, prominently carrying Ikumi's old bear doll Joy, finds Chairman Shijima, who talks of his regrets; the action shifts to Heartland. He describes his plan to overthrow the King via letting the King's giant robots fail, to prominently save the kingdom with his own giant robot; the King orders Watanabe arrested, while Peach enters the remaining robot to do battle with the Colossus, which Kokone empowers with the tablet. Watanabe manages to emit a "curse" from his cell phone to sabotage the robot, the kingdom is engulfed in flames. Regardless and Kokone are able to prevail over the Colossus, albeit via flying into space and crashing back to Heartland. In the real world and her father Momotarō are now stuck in the rafters of the building while Watanabe is carried off, Momotarō is holding onto Kokone just as Peach once had for Ancien.

International Standard Serial Number
An International Standard Serial Number is an eight-digit serial number used to uniquely identify a serial publication, such as a magazine. The ISSN is helpful in distinguishing between serials with the same title. ISSN are used in ordering, interlibrary loans, other practices in connection with serial literature; the ISSN system was first drafted as an International Organization for Standardization international standard in 1971 and published as ISO 3297 in 1975. ISO subcommittee TC 46/SC 9 is responsible for maintaining the standard; when a serial with the same content is published in more than one media type, a different ISSN is assigned to each media type. For example, many serials are published both in electronic media; the ISSN system refers to these types as electronic ISSN, respectively. Conversely, as defined in ISO 3297:2007, every serial in the ISSN system is assigned a linking ISSN the same as the ISSN assigned to the serial in its first published medium, which links together all ISSNs assigned to the serial in every medium.
The format of the ISSN is an eight digit code, divided by a hyphen into two four-digit numbers. As an integer number, it can be represented by the first seven digits; the last code digit, which may be 0-9 or an X, is a check digit. Formally, the general form of the ISSN code can be expressed as follows: NNNN-NNNC where N is in the set, a digit character, C is in; the ISSN of the journal Hearing Research, for example, is 0378-5955, where the final 5 is the check digit, C=5. To calculate the check digit, the following algorithm may be used: Calculate the sum of the first seven digits of the ISSN multiplied by its position in the number, counting from the right—that is, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, respectively: 0 ⋅ 8 + 3 ⋅ 7 + 7 ⋅ 6 + 8 ⋅ 5 + 5 ⋅ 4 + 9 ⋅ 3 + 5 ⋅ 2 = 0 + 21 + 42 + 40 + 20 + 27 + 10 = 160 The modulus 11 of this sum is calculated. For calculations, an upper case X in the check digit position indicates a check digit of 10. To confirm the check digit, calculate the sum of all eight digits of the ISSN multiplied by its position in the number, counting from the right.
The modulus 11 of the sum must be 0. There is an online ISSN checker. ISSN codes are assigned by a network of ISSN National Centres located at national libraries and coordinated by the ISSN International Centre based in Paris; the International Centre is an intergovernmental organization created in 1974 through an agreement between UNESCO and the French government. The International Centre maintains a database of all ISSNs assigned worldwide, the ISDS Register otherwise known as the ISSN Register. At the end of 2016, the ISSN Register contained records for 1,943,572 items. ISSN and ISBN codes are similar in concept. An ISBN might be assigned for particular issues of a serial, in addition to the ISSN code for the serial as a whole. An ISSN, unlike the ISBN code, is an anonymous identifier associated with a serial title, containing no information as to the publisher or its location. For this reason a new ISSN is assigned to a serial each time it undergoes a major title change. Since the ISSN applies to an entire serial a new identifier, the Serial Item and Contribution Identifier, was built on top of it to allow references to specific volumes, articles, or other identifiable components.
Separate ISSNs are needed for serials in different media. Thus, the print and electronic media versions of a serial need separate ISSNs. A CD-ROM version and a web version of a serial require different ISSNs since two different media are involved. However, the same ISSN can be used for different file formats of the same online serial; this "media-oriented identification" of serials made sense in the 1970s. In the 1990s and onward, with personal computers, better screens, the Web, it makes sense to consider only content, independent of media; this "content-oriented identification" of serials was a repressed demand during a decade, but no ISSN update or initiative occurred. A natural extension for ISSN, the unique-identification of the articles in the serials, was the main demand application. An alternative serials' contents model arrived with the indecs Content Model and its application, the digital object identifier, as ISSN-independent initiative, consolidated in the 2000s. Only in 2007, ISSN-L was defined in the
Ghost in the Shell (1995 film)
Ghost in the Shell is a 1995 anime cyberpunk film based on the manga of the same name by Masamune Shirow. It was written by Kazunori Itō and directed by Mamoru Oshii, stars the voices of Atsuko Tanaka, Akio Ōtsuka, Iemasa Kayumi. Ghost in the Shell was a Japanese-British international co-production, produced by Kodansha, Bandai Visual and Manga Entertainment, with animation provided by Production I. G; the plot follows Motoko Kusanagi, a public-security agent, who hunts the mysterious hacker known as the Puppet Master. The philosophical themes include self-identity in a technologically advanced world; the music, composed by Kenji Kawai, includes an ancient Japanese language. Considered one of the greatest anime films of all time, critics praised the film's visuals, achieved through a combination of traditional cel animation and CGI animation; the film, which had a budget over $10 million, was a box office failure, before drawing a cult following on home video, grossing $43 million in total box office and home video sales revenue.
It inspired filmmakers such as the Wachowskis, creators of the Matrix films, James Cameron. In 2004, Oshii directed Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence, billed as a separate work and not a true sequel. In 2008, Oshii released an updated version of the original film, Ghost in the Shell 2.0, featuring new audio and updated 3D animation. A live-action adaptation starring Scarlett Johansson was released in 2017. In 2029, with the advance of cybernetic technology, the human body can be "augmented" or completely replaced with cybernetic parts. Another significant achievement is the cyberbrain, a mechanical casing for the human brain that allows access to the Internet and other networks. An often-mentioned term is "ghost", referring to the consciousness inhabiting the body. Major Motoko Kusanagi is an assault-team leader for the Public Security Section 9 of "New Port City" in Japan. Following a request from Nakamura, chief of Section 6, she assassinates a diplomat of a foreign country to prevent a programmer named Daita from defecting.
The Foreign Minister's interpreter is ghost-hacked to assassinate VIPs in an upcoming meeting. Believing the perpetrator is the mysterious Puppet Master, Kusanagi's team follows the traced telephone calls that sent the virus. After a chase, they capture a thug. However, both are only ghost-hacked individuals with no clue about the Puppet Master; the investigation again comes to a dead end. Megatech Body, a "shell" manufacturer with suspected close ties to the government, is hacked and assembles a cybernetic body; the body is hit by a truck. As Section 9 examines the body, they find a human "ghost" inside its computer brain. Unexpectedly, Nakamura arrives to reclaim the body, he claims that the "ghost" inside the brain is the Puppet Master himself, lured into the body by Section 6. The body reactivates itself, claims to be a sentient being and requests political asylum. After the Puppet Master initiates a brief argument about what constitutes a human, a camouflaged agent accompanying Nakamura starts a diversion and gets away with the body.
Having suspected foul play, Kusanagi's team is prepared and pursues the agent. Meanwhile, Section 9 researches "Project 2501", mentioned earlier by the Puppet Master, finds a connection with Daita, whom Section 6 tries to keep from defecting the country. Facing the discovered information, Daisuke Aramaki, chief of Section 9, concludes that Section 6 created the Puppet Master itself for various political purposes; this is why Section 6 is trying to reclaim the body. Kusanagi follows the car carrying the body to an abandoned building, it is protected by a large tachikoma. Anxious to face the Puppet Master's ghost, Kusanagi engages the tank without backup and is dismembered and nearly killed, her partner Batou arrives in time to save her, helps connect her brain to the Puppet Master's. The Puppet Master explains to Kusanagi that he was created by Section 6. While wandering various networks, he began to contemplate his existence. Deciding the essence of humanity is reproduction and mortality, he wants to exist within a physical brain that will die.
As he could not escape Section 6's network, he had to download himself into a cybernetic body. Having interacted with Kusanagi, he believes she is questioning her humanity, they have a lot in common, he proposes merging their ghosts, in return, Kusanagi would gain all of his capabilities. Kusanagi agrees to the merge. Snipers from Section 6 approach the building, intending to destroy the Puppet Master's and Kusanagi's brains to cover up Project 2501; the Puppet Master's shell is destroyed. As Section 9 closes in on the site, the snipers retreat. "Kusanagi" wakes up in Batou's safe house with her previous shell's head attached to a new cyborg child body. She tells Batou that the entity within her body is neither Kusanagi nor the Puppet Master, but a combination of both, she leaves the house and wonders where to go next. Director Mamoru Oshii stated, "My intuition told me that this story about a futuristic world carried an immediate message for our present world. I am interested in computers through my own personal experience with them.
I had the same feeling about Patlabor and I thought it would be interesting to make a film that took place in the near future. There are only a few movies out of Hollywood, which portray the influence and power of computers. I thought this theme would be more conveyed through animation." Oshii expanded on these thoughts in a interview, noting that technology ch

G to produce the film. The film premiered on November 17, 1999, in France, Bandai Entertainment licensed the film for an English-language release in North America and Europe, it has been relicensed for Blu-ray/DVD in North America by Discotek Media. The story is set in alternate-history Japan in the 1950s following atomic bombing and occupation of the country by Germany and the post-war recovery, it focuses on Kazuki Fuse, a member of the elite Kerberos Panzer Cops, a metropolitan anti terror unit. Fuse confronts his own humanity when he fails to shoot a young female terrorist who they trap in the storm-water tunnels, she only kills herself. The incident damages the reputation of the unit and Fuse is reprimanded, he visits the ashes of the dead girl and meets Kei Amemiya, who claims to be the elder sister of the terrorist and they develop a friendship.

Fuse kills Kei anyway, sacrificing his humanity to remain part of the pack; the old sergeant solemnly compares Kei's fate to the demise of Red Riding Hood and the triumph of the wolf. Yoshikatsu Fujiki as Corporal Kazuki Fuse Sumi Mutoh as Kei Amemiya Hiroyuki Kinoshita as Atsushi Henmi Eri Sendai as Nanami Agawa Kenji Nakagawa as Isao Aniya Kousei Hirota as Bunmei Muroto Ryuichi Horibe as Shiroh Tatsumi Yukihiro Yoshida as Hajime Handa Tamio Ōki as Capo Officer Yoshisada Sakaguchi as Hachiroh Tohbe Mamoru Oshii had wanted to do Jin-Roh several years prior, was about to propose the project to Bandai Visual at a meeting. However, they offered him to a job he could not turn down, so the project was put on back burner; the film he ended up making instead was Ghost in the Shell. In the end though, the condition set by Bandai Visual to produce the film was for Mamoru Oshii not to direct it, after the two live versions of the series, The Red Spectacles and StrayDog: Kerberos Panzer Cops, did not perform to expectations.
So he offered the job to Hiroyuki Okiura, the animation supervisor who criticized Oshii's handling of accuracy in stage setting during the famed museum sequence featured in Ghost in the Shell. The only thing Mamoru Oshii did after writing the script was to write up additional agitation speech for the opening protest scene, just before the dubbing, he happened to be in the same building for re-mastering of Patlabor 2: The Movie. Jin-Roh was planned to be the third and final live-action feature film of the Kerberos trilogy, but its production wasn't possible until 1994, while Oshii was working on Ghost in the Shell; as the filmmaker wasn't able to produce two films in the same time but didn't want someone else to direct his final episode, Oshii decided that the third episode would be an anime instead. He committed Jin-Roh as a debut film to a trusted young collaborator, Hiroyuki Okiura for he worked on animation movies such as Ghost in the Shell and Patlabor 2: The Movie; the film's mus
