In a futuristic world where the internet and cybernetics has blurred the borders between societies, the members of Public Security Section 9 are reinstated to assist in solving numerous cases of cyber crime.

A spate of similar crimes committed by separate suicidal groups known as "The Individual Eleven" becomes the core focus for Section 9 as war approaches in the form of refugees flooding into the country.

"She's the only one that I can be certain is human. I see something in her, something I connect with. It's as if she's stubbornly trying to protect her humanity just like I am. Everything else pales before her spirit. Even if you obtain her body through the power of money, you could never possess her will, her beauty, or her truth."

NOTE: If you haven't watched 'Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex' , you will have to watch that anime before the 2nd GIG since I will review only the second season.

"Life without truth is not possible. Truth is perhaps Life itself" - Franz Kafka

One of the keys to creating a successful story is innovation, in particular, creating something that is both interesting and relevant, but approached from a different perspective. Of all the genres of the storytelling medium, science fiction is the only one that holds up a mirror to a possible future be it good or bad. It's for this reason that the genre is often lauded and derided, sometimes by the same person, as science fiction is predictory by nature, in other words, it posits how humans would behave in certain circumstances.

Recommendations

Both are from Production I.G and have the similar futuristic police thriller theme to it. In Psycho-Pass the police's special team that are comprised of Enforcers who are latent criminals who are specialized to hunt down other latent criminals. In Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: 2nd Gig this special unit works for the organization called Public Security Section 9; a division that exist under the Ministry of Home Affairs. The unit is a group who specializes in fighting technology-related crimes like cyberterrorism.

Both have a cyberpunk setting.
Bothy have robots. Great battles. Dystopian future.
