'''''Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex''''' is a TV anime series and adaptation of Creator/ShirowMasamune's ''Manga/GhostInTheShell'' manga. It tells the story of Public Security Section 9, a covert counter-terrorist task force working for the Japanese government in a PostCyberpunk future. Led by Major Motoko Kusanagi (a no-nonsense female cyborg), Section 9 specializes in the rising threat of cybercrime facilitated by the ubiquity of cybernetic bodies[=/=]implants in the future.

Led by Major Motoko Kusanagi (a no-nonsense female cyborg), Section 9 specializes in the rising threat of cybercrime facilitated by the ubiquity of cybernetic bodies[=/=]implants in the future.



The world of ''Stand Alone Complex'' differs from the worlds of the two ''Anime/GhostInTheShell'' feature films and [[Manga/GhostInTheShell the original manga]]: while the feature films and the manga focus on Motoko Kusanagi and her evolution into something beyond human after her encounter with The Puppetmaster, ''Stand-Alone Complex'' doesn't have The Puppetmaster show up in any form and Section 9 (including Kusanagi) exists as a fully functional team.

''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 and various one-shot episodes that follow a single case and focus on character development or worldbuilding. The series identifies these various episodes by a 2-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.

A 2006 MadeForTVMovie, ''Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex: Solid State Society'', takes place two years after the end of ''2nd Gig''; the story follows Section 9 as it struggles to deal with both Motoko's departure and a volatile refugee situation triggered by the actions of someone known only as "The Puppeteer".

As noted above, the ''Ghost in the Shell'' franchise has four [[BroadStrokes separate but equally legitimate continuities]]: that of the manga itself, that of MamoruOshii's films (which themselves recreate and [[CompressedAdaptation compress]] specific parts of the manga into movie form) that of ''Stand Alone Complex'', and ''Anime/GhostInTheShellArise'' (Which takes place as a prequel of sorts to the whole franchise). None of the individual continuities have any direct relation to one another aside from setting and characters, though both movies and ''Stand Alone Complex'' make references to/offer recreations of specific scenes from the manga.

** Batou has a rather lengthy inquisitive conversation with Gohda when the two meet up at the site of the Individual Eleven's (minus Kuze) cluster suicide. They ping-pong a discussion about dreams of power; what would drive a person to such extremes, and how they could possibly succeed with their wild-eyed intentions. They agree it's all factored on desire, knowledge, and an "X factor," pure luck. However, Batou was actually prodding at Gohda to see if he could get him to admit to following any of these dogmatic ideals himself- since Section 9 correctly suspects Gohda is quietly brewing ominous plans in secrecy. But, he's effectively caught on, kept all his bases covered, and behaved so passively and resigned thus far, he's shown not a shred of nervousness at any given time, which would help give him away as "guilty." By the time they finish speaking, you could cut the tension in the air with a knife.

** 2nd Gig takes a Type 3 approach- Subtle Continuity. Episodes are split up into Individual, Dividual, and Dual types. While many of the Individual and Dividual episodes may seem like Stand Alone episodes, every episode focuses on at least some minor detail that plays a larger part later on as the entire story builds up. Individual episodes focus on the story in regards to the rising tensions with the refugees in the country and the Individual Eleven. Dual episodes focus on the government's (and more specifically, Gohda's) involvement in the story. Dividual episodes focus more on the members of Section 9 and how they get involved in the whole story.
