[Anime]Ghost in the shell STAND ALONE COMPLEX
|Statics of evaluation and Ranking|
Stand Alone Complex takes place in the year 2030, in the fictional Japanese city of New Port. The series follows the exploits of Public Security Section 9, a special operations task-force made up of former military officers and police detectives. The series is a "police action drama" that comprises individual cases and the underlying mystery of the Laughing Man.
The Laughing Man incident, which is central to the events of the series, begins 6 years prior to the start of the series. An accomplished computer hacker discovers an internal memo on a form of sclerosis called cyberbrain sclerosis, which reveals that a tuberculosis vaccine is more effective at treating the disease than an emerging therapy using micro-machines. Members of the micro-machine industry in Japan and the Japanese government suppressed the memo in order to profit from the costly but less effective micro-machine therapy being developed. Outraged, the hacker kidnaps the CEO of fictional micro-machine corporation Serano-Genomix, and at gunpoint, tries to convince him to disclose the ineffectiveness of the therapy on live TV. The CEO refuses, and the hacker flees the scene. To protect his identity, he simultaneously hacks every electronic device viewing him and replaces his face with a stylized laughing face instead. The brazenness of the kidnapping and the hacking skill required to make his getaway turns the Laughing Man, as he is later dubbed, into a folk hero. The secret of the memo on cyberbrain sclerosis and the ineffectiveness of the micro-machine therapy, however, remains hidden from the Japanese public.
