So What Exactly Is The Manga About?
In the year 2029, the first book/manga of the 3 part series begins with a group investigating the Puppeteer – a criminal wanted for his numerous crimes executed through ‘Ghost Hacking’ humans with modified brains. The investigation unit, Section 9 lead by Daisuke and Motoko, soon discover that the Puppeteer is actually an AI created by the government able to occupy robot bodies/ Shells.
With this information, they destroy its latest host. But the Puppet Master is transferred into the Motoko mind. The AI speaks to her explaining its goal to further evolve resulting in her allowing it to merge with her. The Major(Motoko) then sets off as a private contractor. She would occasionally meet up with her old team but with a different Shell. Then begins the Human-Error Processor, the second manga in the series.
