Storyline

The anime's story is set in 2027, one year after the end of the fourth non-nuclear war. New Port City is still reeling from the war's aftermath when it suffers a bombing caused by a self-propelled mine. Then, a military member implicated in arms-dealing bribes is gunned down. During the investigation, Public Security Section's Daisuke Aramaki encounters Motoko Kusanagi, the cyborg wizard-level hacker assigned to the military's 501st Secret Unit. Batou, a man with the "eye that does not sleep," suspects that Kusanagi is the one behind the bombing. The Niihama Prefectural Police detective Togusa is pursuing his own dual cases of the shooting death and a prostitute's murder. Motoko herself is being watched by the 501st Secret Unit's head Kurutsu and cyborg agents. Written by Jiilo_Kim

A sad testament of what has become of the Ghost in the Shell franchise

I honestly had hopes left for the last installment of the Arise arc, I thought that maybe they'd want to end it properly by actually putting effort in developing something that didn't feel cheap, uninspired and forgettable.

Well I was wrong, Just like the other three episodes prior, it's amateurish, and feels like a dumbed down version of SAC, which in itself wasn't the greatest thing ever, but was enjoyable in its own way.

Soundtrack-wise it features weaksauce techno beats, the animation is poorly done and is borderline laughable. Scenes and lines are (poorly) rehashed from the 1995 film and as usual the character development is lacking.

This movie says a lot about the current state of anime as a whole and its target audience. I really have to go re-watch Mamoru Oshii's film to rinse the bitter taste this thing left on my mouth.
