FUNimation’s added some new love for their subscribers recently that gives them early access to materials not available elsewhere. One of the recent pieces that we missed was that they’ve added the third episode for Ghost in the Shell: ARISE to their streaming service for those with either a SubPass or All-AccessPass. The episode is available here in its original Japanese language form with English subtitles and it’s available in high definition as well. No home video release date has been set for the third/fourth episode release. FUNimation released the first two episodes on DVD/BD in bilingual form back on October 28th, 2014, and you can read our review of it here .
Plot concept: In this highly anticipated prequel set in the year after the fourth World War, cyborg and hacker Motoko Kusanagi finds herself wrapped up in the investigation of a devastating bombing. But she’s not the only one looking for answers—as she delves deeper into the mystery of who is behind the attack, a specialized team unlike any before begins to take shape.
