|Description||The series takes place in the year 2027, where many people in developed countries have become cyborgs with prosthetic bodies. Primarily set in the fictional Japanese Newport City, the series follows a younger Motoko Kusanagi before the formation of Public Security Section 9. At the start of Arise she is a member of the federal 501 Organization, a group who employs advanced infiltration tactics and espionage in order to attack or neutralize enemy threats. The 501 Organization is also the legal owner of Kusanagi's prosthetic body, which is lent to her in exchange for her services to the group. This debt displeases her and causes a disparity between herself and her employer.
In Ghost Pain, a senior officer, Lieutenant Colonel Kurtz, assigns Kusanagi to a case involving a bomb that sets off in Newport. Along the way she is assisted by an official of Public Security, Daisuke Aramaki, along with ex-Ranger Batou, Detective Togusa of the Niihama Police, undercover investigator Paz and bomb specialist Borma. Throughout the film, Kusanagi is subjected to memory loss that inhibits her progress in the case. It is later revealed that she was implanted with false memories, a product of a failed "Ghost Hack" she had performed on the money-laundering conspirator Mamuro, which was infected with a memory virus. Once she realizes that the 501 Organization was involved with the scandal, she leaves the unit now in legal possession of her own prosthetic body. She is met by Aramaki, who proposes the formation of a new unit within Public Security.
In Ghost Whispers, a former soldier from the Qhardistani War named Kazuya Soga is being tried for "crimes against humanity" by the Japanese government. In order to prove his innocence, Soga sends his men to retrieve evidence of his innocence hidden somewhere in a web of information called "Pandora's Box". This team is led by the former Ranger Batou, who also employs intel officer Ishikawa and Borma as well as the rest of Soga's men. The Major is sent to investigate the matter and becomes subject to an all-out war between Public Security and Kazuya Soga. Along the way, she is allied with Paz from the previous movie as well an American Special Forces member named "VV". Series mainstay Saito is also featured in the film, but is shown to frequently change sides to the one with the greater pay. After the Major invades Soga's cyberspace, she discovers that he was affected by a memory-falsification virus that covered up the truth of what happened in the war, in which he indeed killed the refugees after they had attempted martyrdom on his team. When he learns the truth he decides to kill himself, but the virus he tries to upload to Pandora's Box is still being carried through by none other than VV who reveals herself to be an android. With the help of Batou, she is killed before she can complete the transfer and the battle ends. The Major promises Batou that he may be taken out of incarceration, but only if he decides to join her team.
