<Hereafter, the story of “Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045”>
The Public Security Section 9, known as “Ghost in the Shell”, once again led by Kusanagi Motoko, is faced with the appearance of a new dominant species called “Post-Human”, which will bring the world to a “Sustainable War”.
Year 2045. With the outbreak of economic crisis, “global simultaneous default” shaking all nations along with the tremendous progress of AI, the world has entered a systematic yet “Sustainable War”. However, a recession in the near future has yet to be seen, until people realize that the end of mankind extinction due to AI is creeping closer.
The former members of the Public Security Division 9 are Kusanagi Motoko and Batou, cyborgs with a heavily cyberized body who showed their skills as ex-mercenaries on the west coast of the US continent, where ruins lie across civil wars and conflicts. For they who belong to an anti-cybercrime and counter-terrorist organization, and boast outstanding cyber and combat skills, this era is just the beginning of a new world.
A new entity with marvelous intellectual and physical abilities called “Post-Human” suddenly make its appearance facing the cyber unit led by Kusanagi. How are they born and what is their purpose? In the midst of the conspiracy among the great nations, “Ghost in the Shell” is being assembled once again.
