Synopsis

Rune Balot is weeping and trying to save both herself and a severely injured Oeufcoque from Shell's assassin Boiled. Luckily for her, Doctor Easter finally shows up in the Humpty Dumpty – a special militarized vehicle made for protecting those in Welfare cases if their lives are threatened. From there they go to Paradise, where the Scramble 09 technology (and Boiled's rebirth) was developed. All of the secrets of the past of Mardock City (and possibly its future) are revealed in this riveting second part of the Mardock Scramble series, upping the stakes and making Balot choose between justice for herself or peace within Paradise instead.

The first Mardock Scramble movie had some…well, a lot of problems, but there was something genuinely fascinating at its core that I really enjoyed. The relationship between teenage prostitute turned mute cyborg assassin Balot and her inter-dimensional transforming intelligent golden mouse Oeufcoque had this wonderful contrasting symmetry. Their dialogue revealed more about their characters through their contrasting viewpoints. Sure, the movie also had a man who grafted a vagina onto the palm of his hand, but it was ultimately centred on their relationship and that’s what made me come back to the sequel movie.

From my point of view, the second movie of Mardock Scramble attempts to give more depth to the first movie as well as go into further details as far as the characters are concerned.
Story:
This story consists mainly of two parts, in my opinion, one part focuses on what happens after the battle Boiled, where Balot encounters herself at some type of scientific/medical experimentation center and the other part focuses on a mission that takes place in a casino.
I really enjoyed the story, it was intriguing and exciting, however, I believe that it is rather confusing as I still don't understand why Shell would want read more

Recommendations

They have the same kind of animation by GoHands, the same character design and exactly the same way of coloring, beacuse both of them made my Shingo Suzuki. They have the same sci-fi setting with super powers, and a protagonist who has a little animal on his side, and the main characters face with enemies who are trying to kill theme.
1. unique visualization of cyberspace (not much of it, but nevertheless)
2. Occasionally grim atmosphere
3. Dimsdale-Boiled is somewhat reminiscent of enigmatic terrorist leader Hideo Kuze from S.A.C. 2nd GIG or even Batou
4. non-rushed pace, with occasional dialogues revealing values of life
5. moments of intense action
