The year is 2045. As a result of the Global Simultaneous Default, an economic disaster that shook every country on Earth to its foundations, as well as the explosive evolution of artificial intelligence, the world has plunged into the Sustainable War, a planned war that can be continued indefinitely. In this near future, the decline has not yet become bad enough that people can sense in their daily lives the risk to human survival posed by A.I.

To combat cybercrimes by the Posthumans, a new breed of human being that has suddenly arisen, Public Security Section 9, led by the fully prosthetic cyborg Kusanagi Motoko, makes its way to Tokyo, which was reduced to ruins in a previous war. What they find there are a refugee group that calls itself "N" and a hostile American Special Forces unit. As the risk of nuclear war set off by a hijacked submarine grows ever greater, the three-way battle between Public Security Section 9, America, and the Posthumans intensifies.

Stand Alone Complex is my favorite science fiction series.

I was disappointed by the first half of 2045. The reintroduction of Section 9 didn't hit as well as I would have liked. The animation wasn't what I'd hoped for, and the writing was decent but not as visionary with the exception of the boxer and bank episodes. Season 2 retreads what made 2nd Gig great. The camaraderie between Section 9 and brief glimpses into their past. A sympathetic antagonist with a grandiose plan. Perhaps most importantly, a stark depiction of the future we're headed towards that lingers with you after the credits roll. I'm looking forward ...

when they try to make a GITS plot and failed miserably

visualy appaling, no good melodies to listen again and again, i badly missed yoko kanno masterpiece on GITS SAC
the story was quite good in the first season but become a real bullshit of a plot at the end. a real good start wiith the post human thingy but no real intelligence to end it properly. so what ? they picked an ending randomly between the worst possible ever ?

the only thing who make that that serie a tiny bit enjoyable are the characters and the franchise at a whole. it's probably the worst ...

In my initial review of the first twelve episodes of this season, I lamented over how so many franchises were being brought back tailored for new audiences that completely miss the point of the original show. At the time, I didn’t think I’d ever see a legacy franchise successfully resurrected with the way entertainment is being handled lately.

But then Top Gun: Maverick came out. So, it is possible. With the right writing. Any idea can work with good writing, really. But the people who did this show? I wouldn't trust them to do a nursery rhyme.

As before, I will limit myself to five points. Spoilers ...
