Plot Synopsis[]

When sustainable war spawns a "post-human" threat, Major Kusanagi and her Section 9 team are called back into action.

In the year 2045, after an economic  disaster known as the Synchronized Global Default, rapid developments in AI propelled the world to enter a state of "Sustainable War". However, the public is not aware of the threat that AI has towards the human race.

Full-body cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi and her second-in-command Batou are former members of Public Security Section 9, who are now hired mercenaries traveling the hot, devastated American west coast. This land is full of opportunity for the major and  her team, they utilize their enhanced cyberbrains and combat skills from  their time working in Section 9. However, things get complicated with  the emergence of "post-humans", who have extreme intelligence and  physical powers. The members of Section 9 come back together again in order to face this new threat.
