“To end the war and protect my wife, I must delete you all…”
Japan, 2025. A time when cybernetic technology allows humans to connect their brains to the Network, and to replace body parts with enhanced prosthetics. In this world where the boundary between humans and machines has lost meaning, computer crime and cyber terrorism occur daily.
And now, a bombing attack threat is sent to the Japanese government. The target is an international meeting involving dignitaries from the Republic of Kuzan. The case is entrusted to the Ministry of Home Affairs’ Public Security Section 9.
Section 9’s leader, the the fully cyber-bodied Motoko Kusanagi, assembles her team and heads off to stop the terrorist.
