In the year 2032, Batô, a cyborg detective for the anti-terrorist unit Public Security Section 9, investigates the case of a female robot--one created solely for sexual pleasure--who slaughtered her owner.
Batô is a living cyborg. His whole body, even his arms and legs, are entirely man-made. What only remains are traces of his brain and the memories of a woman. In an era when the boundary between humans and machines has become infinitely vague, Humans have forgotten that they are humans. This is the debauchery of the lonesome ghost of a man, who nevertheless seeks to retain humanity. Innocence... Is what life is.Written by
When Batou and Togusa are exploring Kim's mansion, Batou finds a figure that resembles Motoko Kusanagi's appearance from Ghost in the Shell (1995), along with a row of numbered cards reading "2501". In the original Ghost in the Shell, Project 2501 was the code name given to the Puppet Master project and became the code Batou and Kusanagi agreed to use when they wanted to contact one another.

I just got through watching this film and it amazed me. I agree with the previous post that Innocence is full of philosophy, Descartes is even mentioned by name, and this is by no means a negative.
Constant rhetorical statements within the film make you think which is very refreshing.
Nothing whatsoever to do with the first film, which i am a fan of, but isn't improvement a good thing? Who wants to see a rewritten film anyway? Look elsewhere for films like that, I'm thinking Cruel intentions 1, 2 & 3 etc etc etc I might even like this more than 'Akira', but ill see if i manage to watch Innocence another 14 times and still love it...
I would highly recommend this film to anyone, not just Anime/Manga fans.
