2030: the "real world" and the "net world" have melded ever closer, simultaneously blurring and challenging the boundaries of consciousness, reality, and existence. Implanted cybernetic devices are becoming commonplace. This use of technology has become so integrated into society that those who doe not engage in the use of cybernetic organs are often regarded by others with suspicion. It is here that female cyborg Major Motoko Kusanagi and her fellow officers at Section 9 work to keep the peace. Co-produced by Manga Entertainment and Bandai Entertainment, created by the revered animators at Japan's Production I.G (Kill Bill, Ghost in the Shell), and directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Blood: The Last Vampire, Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade) with music by Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop), the series continues the story of the acclaimed anime feature film Ghost in the Shell, based on the popular manga by Shirow Masamune.

"Effortlessly slick animation, a brilliant music score, and stories that touch the core of what it is to be human--who could ask for more in an anime series?" -
