Synopsis

In the future year of 2030, life between the digital and physical world has been blurred, and many people have become cyborgs with prosthetic bodies. Primarily set in the fictional Japanese city of New Port, the series follows the members of Section 9, a special-operations task-force made up of former military officers and police detectives. The series presents individual cases that Section 9 investigates, along with an ongoing, more serious investigation into the complex Laughing Man incidents.

Additional Voices

Alternate Dub Hong Kong

An alternate dub was created for airing on Animax's Channel in Southeast Asia.

  • Sarah Hauser - Tochikoma
  • Andrea Kwan - Motoko Kusanagi
  • Darren Pleavin - Togusa
  • Rik Thomas - Daisuke Aramaki
  • Russell Wait - Batou

Notes

  • Fukami is voiced by Jamieson Price in Episode 6, though is voiced by Steve Bulen in his other appearances. This is most likely due to Fukami's identity being unrevealed in the episode, and thus the Casting Director thought it to be a separate character.
  • The Tachikoma are all voiced by a single voice actress in the original Japanese version, while the dub utilizes separate female voice actresses portraying them (for example, Batou's favorite is voiced by Sandy Fox, while the one who reads books is Lara Jill Miller).
