Summary:

The second season begins with a hostage situation and Section 9 (unofficially) on the scene. After receiving the permission of Prime Minister Kayabuki, Kusanagi orders Section 9 in to resolve the conflict. The scene climaxes with a shot right out of the original film. In accordance with the deal Prime Minister Kayabuki made with Aramaki before the raid, Kayabuki fully reinstates Section 9 for their success in resolving the situation without losing any of the hostages. In a surprising move, Kusanagi reverses her earlier position on the Tachikoma mini-tanks and reinstates them as members of Section 9. This may be due in part to the heroic sacrifice of three of these units to save Batou at the end of the first season.

As the series progresses, Kusanagi becomes fed up with Section 9 being used by Kazundo Gouda and his Cabinet Intelligence Service[1] and undertakes a risky plan to infiltrate the CIS’s computer database. With the aid of the Tachikomas in their new net agent forms, the Major gains access to the central CIS database and learns that the CIS is behind a recent series of terrorist events in Japan, and also confirms that Section 9 is being manipulated in an effort to sway public opinion against Japan's growing refugee population. This information, along with the other events in the series, leads Kusanagi to suspect that Gouda is attempting to overthrow the Japanese government, or manipulate it in such a way as to advance his position in it.

Shortly after Kusanagi’s infiltration of the CIS database, a terrorist organization responsible for a violent string of attacks on unsuspecting Japanese citizens and vital government interests calling themselves the Individual Eleven surface in Nagasaki. The group makes one short speech on top of a skyscraper before committing mass suicide by mutual decapitation. Aramaki, suspecting Gouda was responsible for the mass suicide, orders Section 9 to launch a full-scale investigation into Gouda in an effort to tie him to the Individual Eleven. The investigation comes to a head when the remains of a nuclear power plant are discovered buried in Nagasaki; Kusanagi, with the aid of other Section 9 members, secures the plutonium fuel rods as proof that the plant is tied to a CIS-run nuclear reactor excavation project, linking Gouda to the nuclear plant operation and the Individual Eleven incidents.

During Section 9’s transportation of the plutonium to the SPring-8 synchrotron radiation facility for analysis, the Japanese Army and Navy are officially ordered to mobilize and head for Dejima Island, where the refugees have declared their independence. In an effort to prevent the oncoming civil war, Prime Minister Kayabuki publicly announces plans for intervention by the United Nations. Concurrent with this announcement, Aramaki orders Kusanagi to infiltrate Dejima Island and capture Hideo Kuze, leader of the refugee insurgency, hoping that handing both him and the plutonium over to the UN inspectors will defuse the refugee situation. Shortly after this announcement, all communication in the Nagasaki area is disabled, preventing the team and Aramaki from communicating with each other.

Kusanagi, realizing the seriousness of the situation, assumes command of all Section 9 members for the upcoming Dejima operation. Upon arriving in Dejima, the Major and her teammates become separated after a JMSDF helicopter attack, leaving Kusanagi to pursue Kuze by herself. She succeeds in finding and capturing him, but both Kuze and Kusanagi become trapped under a pile of rubble after a missile strike. During this that both become aware of their identities and their childhood history as the only two survivors of a plane crash. Both are soon rescued by Batou and are evacuated from Dejima by helicopter. Meanwhile, as part of Gouda's machinations an American Empire submarine launches a nuclear missile at Dejima. The Tachikomas realize that the only way to stop the missile is to remote-maneuver the satellite containing their AIs into its path; they do so, saving Dejima but sacrificing their minds in the process.

As Section 9 regroups from the Dejima operation, Kuze is assassinated by the CIS while in custody. Kusanagi and Batou receive word that Gouda intends to defect to the American Empire and they soon confront Gouda who, accompanied by members of the American Empire, informs them that he has exploited a legal loophole that prevents his arrest. Section 9 counters that the Prime Minister has authorized the use of lethal force against Gouda to stop his defection from damaging national security; a camouflaged Kusanagi then uncloaks and fires several rounds into his head, killing him instantly.
