Netflix announced the closure of its animation development department due to falling revenues but promised not to abandon the projects it had started. These include a new adaptation of the Ghost in the Armor manga. It is an iconic story in the cyberpunk genre that transports viewers to a future where humans have learned to replace worn-out organs with mechanical models. Another reimagining of the manga began in 2020 and proved highly controversial, but in April 2022 it was revealed that the release date for season 2 of the anime (Koukaku Kidoutai) Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is set for May 23, 2022.

According to the plot, a girl named Motoko Kusanagi ends up in the center of the story. The audience is familiar from the previous screenings as a member of Section 9, dedicated to fighting cybercriminals. In the new show, she creates her security agency because, after another financial crisis, subsidies for security have fallen seriously.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
The authorities decided that Section 9 is not needed and closed it down. Meanwhile, the emergence of new criminals shows that the decision to disband the department was hasty and it should be restored to its former composition. The second season will continue to tell the story of the confrontation between Motoko and the new criminals. Its release date is May 23, 2022.
It seemed that the ability to swap organs for cybernetic mechanisms would have a positive effect on humanity. In part, it is a way to abolish death, but you have to pay the price of gradual transformation into a machine because the body does wear out and gradually all the organs are changed into mechanical ones. Those who have undergone this transformation have realized that they have lost their memory and memories of human feelings.
But clever hackers found a way out – this information can be stolen from people without cybernetic organs. The service has become so popular that a real hunt for ordinary people begins. The task of Motoko and her colleagues is to stop the bandits. The release date of season 2 of the anime Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045 is set for May 23, 2022.

The new episodes may be the last for the show, as fans have criticized the show for its extremely mediocre three-dimensional visuals, and the decrease in funding for cartoon development will primarily hit the unpopular projects. The new season’s release date is May 23, 2022, and its ratings will directly determine whether a sequel will be made. The project was produced under the direction of the creative duo of Kenji Kamiyama and Shinji Aramaki, with Ilya Kuvshinov, a native of Russia, in charge of character design.
