Live Action #GhostInTheShell Characters for 「攻殻機動隊 ARISE:GHOST is ALIVE」

Ever imagined how the characters of GHOST IN THE SHELL: ALTERNATIVE ARCHITECTURE anime might look like in "real life"? (And I do not mean Scarlett Johanssen as "Major Motoko", fhanks). How about this collection of images? No, they are no "cosplaying" the characters (not "technically", anyways), but are actors/performers for the coming stage play 「攻殻機動隊 ARISE:GHOST is ALIVE」!

Happening November 5th thru to 15th, 2015, find out more about the ARISE STAGE PROJECT and show on (Website in Japanese), with updates on Twitter @kokaku_a_stage

Goes to "prove" certain anime designs might not go down well with translation to "real life", IMHO … although "Togusa"'s pseudo-Mullet is a right riot LOL
