''Stand Alone Complex'' has two twenty-six episode seasons, ''Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex'' and ''Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C: 2nd GIG''. Fans often abbreviate both seasons (for [[ColonCancer obvious reasons]]) as "GITS:SAC" (pronounced "Git-Sack" by the uncouth) and "''2nd Gig''". Like ''Series/TheXFiles'' and many other SpeculativeFiction TV series, ''Stand Alone Complex'' features episodes dedicated to an ongoing StoryArc alternating with self-contained episodes which follow a single case and focus on character development or worldbuilding. The series identifies these various episodes by two letter code in their titles as being "Stand Alone" or "Complex" in season 1 and "Individual", "Dividual", or "Dual" in 2nd GIG. The first season's "Complex" story arc focuses on the Laughing Man incident, a highly publicized kidnapping by a master hacker who can hack cyberbrains in real time, and a government coverup that led to the original event. The second season's "Individual" story arc focuses on a terrorist cell known as the Individual Eleven, led by the mysterious Hideo Kuze, as well as a "Dual" story arc that focuses on Section 9's conflict with Kazundo Gouda's Cabinet Intelligence Service.

Added DiffLines:

* ConnectedAllAlong: Although it's hinted part way through ''2nd Gig'', the big twist of the season is that [[spoiler: [[AntiVillain Kuze]] and [[TheHero Motoko]] are [[ForgottenChildhoodFriend survivors of the same plane crash incident in their childhoods,]] with Kuze having been Motoko's first crush as well as inspired by her to gain a prosthetic body in the first place.]]

As noted above, the ''Ghost in the Shell'' franchise has four [[BroadStrokes separate but equally legitimate continuities]]: 1) the original manga, 2) MamoruOshii's films (which themselves recreate and [[CompressedAdaptation compress]] specific parts of the manga), 3) ''Stand Alone Complex'' and 4) ''Anime/GhostInTheShellArise'', a prequel of sorts to the whole franchise. None of the individual continuities have any direct relation to one another aside from variants on the setting and characters, although both movies and ''Stand Alone Complex'' make references to/offer recreations of specific scenes from the manga.

** Like the opening of season 1, the opening of season 2 is all about showing off the awesome skills of Section 9 while providing a reason for the unit's reactivation. The regular SWAT unit attempts an assault on the Chinese embassy through the air vents, but spectacularly fails with one officer dead and another being added to the terrorists' hostages. Seeing these poor results, his superiors immediately give Aramaki the green light to send in his team and get the job done.
