Masamune Shirow (Ghost in the Shell, Appleseed) is probably one of the most famous Japanese manga artists in the West. His activity as an artist is a kind slow, but we have seen so many anime/CG adaptation works based on his manga, not to mention the most recent OVA series Ghost in the Shell: Arise.
A Tokyo-based company Basic has started accepting orders for eight smartphone cases for iPhone4/4S and iPhone5 featuring color illustrations by Masamune Shirow from its "phocase" line. The illustrations are taken from his recent art books. The price for each cases is 2,980 yen (about US$29.94). Which case do you like the best?
"APPLESEED No.2062 MASKING"
