This is the only hentai on my bookshelf...
This is not even a GiTS, this is just hentai. The story is totally messed up (just like my reviev). You don't know what's happening there. I am preatty big fan of GiTS, but to be honest, this is worst manga I've read so far. The plot is almost impossible to follow and i didn't find any enjoyment in this.
The only good thing about it, is drawing. Almost on every paged there is a naked or half naked women.
I can't reccomend this to anyone. This is my rating:

There is a world supersaturated with technology without any foreseeable boundaries. No more is there the question as to the link between man and machine; it is the foregone conclusion. We stand at the edge of an ocean of change and somewhere deep, down in those unlit and unfathomable dark places, it must be awaiting us. So where do we go from here? Such is the world of Ghost in the Shell. Such is our own.

If the original manga stood us on a hill overlooking this ocean, Ghost in the Shell 2: Man-Machine Interface places us firmly on the shoreline where the waters swell and ...

Try drawing some half naked women, or sometimes completely naked, in scenes that you can have a good view of their asses, panties, or pointy big hard tits, or everything in the same scene as they are doing some contortion to show you everything at the same time... then you add some lines saying "hacking this" "hacking that" "corrupting files" "putting up firewall" "my skirt is too heavy, better take it off", add some poor crime investigation or mercenary plots and some cheesy philosophical questions not adding anything new to the GitS series...


You have Koukaku Kidoutai 2: Manmachine Interface, a total waste I couldn't recommend ...
