Anime Description: Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence

Ghost in the Shell: Innocence is the sequel to the movie Ghost in the Shell that inspired the anime Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, and takes place in the year 2032. Unlike the first movie that has Major Motoko Kusanagi playing the main role, Batou the man who played second in the first movie is the main character.

Batou is a cyborg who's whole body is cybernetic, the only human part of him is the few remaining traces of his human brain, and the memories of a woman called Major. In a world were Cyborg's are the main population in which true flesh and blood humans are becoming rare.

There is hardly any human in the world who has not had some kind of robotic transplant. In this world most humans either have robotic eyes or arms, some humans have allowed their "ghosts" to inhabit robotic, genderless bodies.

This movie shows Batou as a man that clings strongly of what is left of his human self and what is left of his humanity, and keep just as close what life is to him...innocence. His new partner Togusa takes the sidekick part as Batou is now leader. Batou seems to be saddened and depressed at the disappearance of Major Motoko Kusanagi, who went into cyberspace and has not been seen since.

In the movie Batou and Togusa have been assigned by the anti terrorist force Sector 9 to track down several gynoids, a new type of android designed to resemble human females and programmed to give their owners sexual pleasure. However the owner of Locus Solus that is a company that makes gynoids is killed by his own gynoid, at this time other gynoids kill their owners.

Batou and Togusa must find out what was the cause of this. Along with searching through slums and fighting Yakuza's (Gangsters) they under cover a shocking bit of information about the gynoids; who are also called dolls since they have no living soul, however the information they find seems to prove different.
