Could you do one without the white background? As in, just the logo, but still with white inside it.
Well I mean all you need to worry about is around the actual circle cause in the series is was white. Anyways thank you for the image.

More info here: [link]

The original was made by Paul Nicholson when Kenji Kamiyama asked him to make a logo for the Ghost in the Shell series. The sentence is a quote from The Catcher in the Rye by J D Salinger. The quote in its entirety goes,

"I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn't have to have any goddamn stupid useless conversations with anybody. If anybody wanted to tell me something they'd have to write it on a piece of paper and shove it over to me. They'd get bored as hell doing that after a while, and then I'd be through with having conversations for the rest of my life".

You DID get the Episode 9 reference, right?

It's been a few years... So I guess not.
nope, i was wrong.
i'm pretty sure its spinning the wrong way around...
Almost perfect !!

Maybe I'm asking too much but perfection would be transparency outside.

Would you easily manage to post a transparent version, too?

The white background is the default background color Flash adds when you embed something that has no background. I consider the Flash version of this the master copy. Since this is a copy of the Flash version; and the Flash version is infinitely scalable, has a better frame rate, and has the transparency you're requesting, I don't think I'll bother to add transparency to the GIF version. Plus I don't know how to. It's been years since I edited animated GIF's. The best I can do is send you the source file (.SWF file). You might be able to do more with it if you have an up-to-date version of Adobe Flash.
I managed to remove the background color (it wasn't exactly white), without altering the logo, with The Gimp. If you want, I can send you the resultant GIF file. I don't want to upload it to rapidshare or any other image hosting, because you worked too hard on it so you deserve the credit.

Nice catch! The program that converted this to .GIF changed the pure white color to #FAFAFE. I never would have noticed.

You're not the first person to try and change the format of my original SWF. Go ahead and post it wherever you want. There's demand for it so why not?
