course i heard of ghost in the shell, but that's the animation studio involved. the director is supposedly "acclaimed" yet he's done nothing anyone has heard of. your reading comprehension is horrible.

Maybe you should read more carefully. This project is not directed by Mamoru Oshii, he is not the director in question. That would be Masaaki Yuasa. Mxtra was saying he does not know the works of Yuasa (and I suggest he fixes that starting from Mindgame, all his work is mindblowing). Oshii is consultant here.
