The Fire Starter virus is at work again, and as you can imagine things start out as normal as they can (some hostage situation at some embassy / situation that if not handled correctly could lead to some international incident. But of course Motoko and Section 9 are certain level things out.
The animation doesn’t feel GITS epic, more like what you would expect from a more serialised Ghost In The Shell venture like Stand Alone Complex and 2nd Gig (looks like she kept her second body), but still pays homage to the classic.
