When terrorism reaches a new level that includes the ability to hack into people's minds and control them, Major Kusanagi is uniquely qualified to stop it. As she prepares to face a new enemy, Major Kusanagi discovers that she has been lied to: her life was not saved, it was stolen.

IN THE FUTURE, THE LINE BETWEEN

HUMAN AND MACHINE...

IS DISAPPEARING.

ADVANCEMENTS IN TECHNOLOGY ALLOW

HUMANS TO ENHANCE THEMSELVES...

WITH CYBERNETIC PARTS.

HANKA ROBOTICS,

FUNDED BY THE GOVERNMENT...

It is developing a military operative...

That will blur the line even further.

By transplanting a human brain

into a fully synthetic body...

They will combine the strongest attributes

of Human and Robot.

PROJECT 2571

Oxygen levels are dropping

brain function normal.

Robotic skeleton prepared

and waiting for Brain Conversion.

Initiate Project 2571.

Now your eyes are gonna open.

You are safe.

It's ok, just breathe.

Just breathe.

Breathe.

Good.

That's good.

Hello Mia.

I'm Dr.. Ouelet.

Do you remember anything about the attack?

What happened?

I was...

You were drowning.

There was water.

That's right. You were on a boat,

a refugee boat.

It was sank by terrorists.

Why can't I feel my body?

Mira, your body was damaged.

We could not save that.

Only your brain survived.

We made you a new body.

A synthetic shell.

But your mind, your soul...

Your ghost.

It's still in there.

Please.

Sedate her.

Will it work?

Absolutely.

She's a miracle.

A machine can't lead,

It can only follow orders.

A machine can't imagine or care or intuit.

But as a human mind in

a cybernetic frame...

Mira can do all those things, and more.

The first of her kind.

She will join Section 9

as soon as she is operational.

Please don't do that.

You reducing a complex human to a machine.

I don't think of her as a machine.

She is a weapon.

And the future of my company.

ONE YEAR LATER:

The first artificially created

memory enhancement.

Sirenum training protocol is the

fastest and most efficient way...

to develop your ability.

Stronger than ever. Experience your power.

Cybercrime is a Type 1 offense.

Minimum punishment: 15 years in prison.

Hanka Robotics guarantees

personal safety against.

All patrolling area units, be advised

possible cybercrime activity in vicinity.

Airspace in adjoining areas

will be locked down.

Section 9 is currently on site.

I repeat:
All patrolling area units,

be advised, possible cyber crime...

This is major. I'm on site.

Awaiting instructions.

Analyze and report.

I'm human, I am flawed.

But I embrace change...

and enhancement.

Now there is nothing I can't do.

Nothing I can't know, nothing I can't be.

Wait and listen to something.

It's my 4 year old daughter.

In the time it took her

to sing that lullaby

she learned to speak fluent French.

Do you know that song...?

There is an echo box up here.

Someone is scanning data traffic.

Keeps track of where it is transmitted.

To see who's worth

this kind of surveillance.

Accessing hotel security network.

What're you seeing, sir?

I've got a lot of hotel to scan.

There is a banquet room reserved for

the President of the African Federation.

Dr. Osmond is invited

on behalf of Hanka Robotics.

Got it. 43rd floor.

Someone contacted the president staff.

Someone is watching him.

Dr. Osmond...

What is it you want from us?

I think it is more about what

Hanka Robotics can do for you.

73% of this world has woken up

to the age of cyber enhancement.

Do you really wanna be left behind?

My people embrace cyber enhancement

as do I.

There is no one who really

understand the risk...

To individuality, identity,

messing with the human soul.

Gentlemen, Excuse me,

I think you've the wrong...

Hallway. Six men. Shots fired.

Section 9 ETA?

- Two minutes out, Major.

- Too long.

I'm going in.

Hold!

Mayor, stop!

I had heard this speech before
