Ghost in the Shell Arise border: 1 Ghost Pain (DVD)
GHOST IN THE SHELL ARISE border:1 Ghost Pain
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 501 Secret Unit. Batou, a man with the "eye that does not sleep," suspects that Motoko 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 501 Secret Unit's head Kurutsu and cyborg agents.
The encounter between Motoko and Daisuke sparks the assembly of an elite new unit within Section 9, and Daisuke is currently the chief of Public Security Section 9.
