Standing among the greatest action anime series of all time, Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex takes us into a futuristic world where the line between man and machine is blurred, where advances in cybernetics have given rise to a new type of criminal, and a new type of terrorism. Keeping Japan safe is Major Motoko Kusanagi, a gorgeous and deadly cyborg, the leader of Section 9, the government’s clandestine unit trained to handle cyber-terrorism. Between battling international crime syndicates, tracking deadly androids, and protecting targeted government officials, the members of Section 9 are greeted with their toughest test: The Laughing Man, a faceless and merciless terrorist, who’ll take Section 9 through a deadly labyrinth of intrigue. All their expertise may not be enough to survive.
