GHOST IN THE SHELL: SAC_2045

// STORY

The year is 2045, and a global economic disaster known as the "Synchronized Global Default" rocked the nations of the world. That, coupled with the explosive evolution of AI, has caused the world to enter into a planned, maintained conflict called the "Sustainable War." However, the situation has not yet progressed to the point that people view an AI-induced extinction event as an imminent threat to humanity.
Under the secret order of the prime minister, Public Security Section 9 is reorganized to combat a new wave of crime after the sudden appearance of a new breed of humans known as "Post-Humans." Amid the hunt for Takashi Shimamura, believed to have awakened as a Post-Human in Japan, Togusa goes missing. Led by the full-body cyborg, Major Motoko Kusanagi, Public Security Section 9 follows Togusa's trail to the war-ravaged ruins of Tokyo. There, they encounter a group of refugees calling themselves "N," as well as a special forces unit from America that has been sent to intervene. As potential nuclear war looms, thanks to a hijacked nuclear submarine, the three-way battle between Section 9, the American forces, and the Post-Humans escalates.
