It looks like Netflix has a brand new teaser trailer for its upcoming Ghost in the Shell anime.

Netflix just recently posted a new video for its new Ghost in the Shell series titled Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 and while the teaser didn't last very long, it gave fans a good look at the fresh animation style that the series is boasting. There's very little information about the series right now, but the trailer seems to feature a setting far from the cyberpunk metropolis that we've come to associate with the Ghost in the Shell franchise. Instead, we're brought to what seems to be a derelict wasteland with crumbling buildings and dusty roads.

"In the year 2045, after global capitalism has defaulted, Japan's elite Section 9 begins conducting covert cyber operations," the description for the teaser reads.

Oddly enough, despite its beautiful visuals, fans don't seem too eager to see Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045. Netflix's new teaser has about 2.7 thousand likes and 2.7 thousand dislikes with fans making fun of the video calling it "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Cutscene" and the leavings of what seems to be a mobile game. Many seem to be disappointed by the new style, saying that they never wanted to see a Ghost in the Shell series that resembled a videogame.

Co-directed by Appleseed's Shinji Aramaki and by Stand Alone Complex's Kenji Kamiyama, the new Ghost in the Shell series has two seasons planned with 12 episodes each.

Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is set for release on Netflix sometime in 2020.
