The year is 2029. The world has become an ultra-high information society, with vast amounts of information circulating all around the world through communication networks covering all areas. A special unit was formed to fight the complex crimes of this society. This organization, belonging to the Public Security Section 9, is called the Shell Squad.

Since its release in 1995, Ghost in the Shell has received positive reviews, with critics praising the story, visuals, and music. It has earned a cult following and is said to be one of the greatest science fiction anime films of all time. World-renowned filmmaker James Cameron described the film as “the first truly adult animation film to reach a level of literary and visual excellence.”
To commemorate the series’25th anniversary, the film was remade on NETFLIX in 2020, and in May 2022 the newest season Ghost in the Shell:SAC_2045 was broadcasted. Licensees include global sports apparel brands, international luxury fashion brands, and popular baseball cap manufacturers, who want to add a cyberpunk atmosphere to their lineup.
