The original Ghost in the Shell Manga cover

Featured Episode: The Day the Bridge Falls – MARTIAL LAW


Prime Minister Kayabuki meets with her cabinet to discuss the Fukuoka nuclear bomb incident, but the cabinet has already decided to deploy the army to retrieve the remaining plutonium supposedly hidden on Dejima Island. Reluctantly, Kayabuki agrees to the plan, and returns to her office to report the decision to Aramaki. After mulling over the available options, Aramaki suggests that the PM put in a request to the United Nations and ask for the dispatch of their nuclear inspectors to Dejima to collect the plutonium. The PM agrees, and instructs the Chief Cabinet Secretary to make the announcement in the press room. The unexpected UN involvement catches the man off guard; to protect his own interests, he asks an aide to begin the process to remove the PM. The cleverly timed announcement made by the PM ruins the Chief Cabinet Secretary's plan for a military invasion of Dejima, as it will take UN inspectors 48 hours to arrive in Japan. Despite this, the Japanese Ground Self-Defense Army and Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force are ordered to surround Dejima. Elsewhere, Section 9 has transferred the plutonium from the bomb in Fukuoka to one of their own undercover trucks, and have started moving the material to SPring-8, but while en route to the facility, the team discovers that they have been cut off from the Chief. In the absence of his instructions, Kusanagi assumes command of all Section 9 members, and abruptly changes their plan: Rather than move the plutonium to SPring-8, Section 9 will take it into Dejima and capture Kuze so that they can hand them both over to the UN. The team agrees, and the plan is put into motion, but before infiltrating Dejima, a single Tachikoma containing a sample of the plutonium is dispatched to Ishikawa, who has volunteered to take the sample to SPring-8. Using the SDA mobilization as a cover, Section 9 captures a military transport chopper and head for Dejima to put their plan into action. Meanwhile, the refugees are becoming anxious; the military has blockaded Dejima and the two sides face each other down from opposite sides of the bridge that leads into Dejima. Thanks to a last-second Internet message from Kusanagi, Kuze realizes that the Japanese Army is coming, but before he can do anything about it, the refugees' connection to Kuze's cyberbrain hub is cut off by Goda's communications jamming. Out on the bridge barricade, a trigger-happy refugee sniper breaks with instructions not to fire and kills a GSDA soldier, triggering a gunfight between the barricading refugees and the JGSDF.

Ghost in the Shell - Arise

Taking place in the Japanese Newport City, the series follows a younger Motoko Kusanagi before the formation of Public Security Section 9. At the start of Arise

she is a member of the federal 501 Organization, a group who employs advanced infiltration tactics and espionage in order to attack or neutralize enemy threats. The 501 Organization is also the legal owner of Kusanagi's prosthetic body, which is lent to her in exchange for her services to the group. This debt displeases her and causes a disparity between herself and her employer.

In Ghost Pain, a senior officer, Lieutenant Colonel Kurtz, assigns Kusanagi to a case involving a bomb that sets off in Newport. Along the way she is assisted by an official of Public Security, Daisuke Aramaki, along with ex-Ranger Batou, Detective Togusa of the Niihama Police, undercover investigator Paz and bomb specialist Borma. Throughout the film, Kusanagi is subjected to memory loss that inhibits her progress in the case. It is later revealed that she was implanted with false memories, a product of a failed "Ghost Hack" she had performed on the money-laundering conspirator Mamuro, which was infected with a memory virus. Once she realizes that the 501 Organization was involved with the scandal, she leaves the unit now in ↵legal possession of her own prosthetic body. She is met by Aramaki, who proposes the formation of a new unit within Public Security.

In Ghost Whispers, a former soldier from the Qhardistani War named Kazuya Soga is being tried for "crimes against humanity" by the Japanese government. In order to prove his innocence, Soga sends his men to retrieve evidence of his innocence hidden somewhere in a web of information called "Pandora's Box". This team is led by the former Ranger Batou, who also employs intel officer Ishikawa and Borma as well as the rest of Soga's men. The Major is sent to investigate the matter and becomes subject to an all-out war between Public Security and Kazuya Soga. Along the way, she is allied with Paz from the previous movie as well an American Special Forces member named "VV". Series mainstay Saito is also featured in the film, but is shown to frequently change sides to the one with the greater pay. After the Major invades Soga's cyberspace, she discovers that he was affected by a memory-falsification virus that covered up the truth of what happened in the war, in which he indeed killed the refugees after they had attempted martyrdom on his team. When he learns the truth he decides to kill himself, but the virus he tries to upload to Pandora's Box is still being carried through by none other than VV who reveals herself to be an android. With the help of Batou, she is killed before she can complete the transfer and the battle ends. The Major promises Batou that he may be taken out of incarceration, but only if he decides to join her team.
