Ghost In The Shell: Innocence


Taking control of the ship, the Major reveals to Batou the truth about the gynoids. Hiring the Yakuza to traffic young girls, LOCUS SOLUS duplicated their consciousnesses into the gynoids, giving them human "ghosts" to make them more realistic. Batou rescues a young girl from a "ghost dubbing" machine, and she explains that Jack Walkson, having learned the truth about LOCUS SOLUS, promised to save the girls by tampering with the ghosting process. This caused the gynoids to murder their owners, allowing Walkson to attract police attention and indirectly kill the Yakuza boss. Despite Walkson's actions saving the girls, Batou objects that he also victimized the gynoids as well, causing them severe distress by giving them damaged ghosts. Having solved the case, Batou asks the Major if she's happy now. She responds that she'll always be beside him on the network, then disconnects from the gynoid.




Ghost in the Shell: Innocence



Much of the story line is taken from the original Ghost in the Shell manga, from a chapter called Robot Rondo, albeit heavily modified from the original tale. The story of Innocence begins in 2032, when cities are inhabited by the dwindling races of humans, purely mechanical androids, and cyborgs like Batou who still have a ghost (the in-universe term for the human spirit), but are vulnerable to ghost hacking.


Unlike with a filmed movie, the creators of an animated movie must envision and create all the detailed elements that make up a scene, and the movie comes to life. Innocence approaches this challenge with some weird 3D scenes softly integrated to 2D characters; but it is said that "in some scenes there was intentional direction from Oshii to make 3D environment look unreal to describe ghost-hack and such complicated concepts."


The film's story takes place in a post-cyberpunk future where cybernetic bodies have become the norm and society conceptualizes a person's mind/soul as their "ghost". Major Motoko Kusanagi, a female cyborg and the leader of a covert government task-force specializing in cybercrime, leads her team on the hunt for a notorious hacker known only as "Puppet Master". The Puppet Master "cyber-hacks" the brains of innocent people and implants memories to turn them into his unwitting accomplices in various crimes.


Taking control of the ship, the Major then reveals to Batou the truth about the gynoids. Hiring the Yakuza to traffick young girls, LOCUS SOLUS mass-duplicated their consciousnesses into the gynoids, giving them human "ghosts" to make them more realistic, an illegal process that destroys the girls' brains. Batou rescues a young girl from a "ghost dubbing" machine, and she explains that Jack Walkson, learning the truth about LOCUS SOLUS, promised to save the girls by tampering with the ghosting process; this caused the gynoids to murder their owners, allowing Walkson to attract police attention and indirectly kill the Yakuza boss. Despite Walkson's actions saving the girls, Batou objects that he also victimized the gynoids as well, causing them severe distress by giving them damaged ghosts. Having solved the case, Batou asks the Major if she's happy now, and she notes that she'll always be beside him on the network, before disconnecting from the gynoid.


GHOST IN THE SHELL 2: INNOCENCE begins three years after the original, with the disappearance of undercover cop, Major Kusanagi. The story centers on Kusanagi's new, more human partner, the mountainous cyborg Batou, and their investigation into the serial killings of "gynoids," robots (the future's answer to geishas). Like Kusanagi before him, Batou delves into dilemmas about the meaning of humanity in relation to cybernetics and his "ghost," or soul.
